The Dom Post reports:
Labour MP Trevor Mallard says he didn’t know how to set a “buy now” option on Trade Me – despite being a member since 2005 and on-selling tickets to Homegrown and the Wellington Sevens in the past.
Under fire for ticket scalping after selling four tickets to the sold-out Homegrown festival at a $276 profit, Mr Mallard told Radio Live this morning that he hadn’t been aware he could put a “buy now” price on the auction.
However, his TradeMe account shows he has been a member of the online auction site since 2005, and has sold plenty of tickets in the past.
Did not know how to set a buy now option? Really? Well in case Trevor needs a hand in future, I’m happy to assist.
If you are selling tickets to a concert on Trade Me, this is the screen you will see.
As is obvious, setting a buy now price is incredibly simple. You just enter the price you want in.Tags: scalping, Trade Me, Trevor Mallard
