    Anyone else having issues with bidding via trademe?

    As per title tried to enter my license number ( probably my first mistake ) to bid on a 50 dollar 22. (If anyone has a semi auto 22 they'd sell cheap I'd be interested )

    It said that I need to enter a valid license number. My license isn't expired. It's less than a year old. Name is the same as the license.

    Don't know where I am going wrong. Any one had similar experiences?

    Cheers.

    Had the same issue. Rung them and got told if your Trade Me account name is different to the FAL it comes up as invalid.
    Account name and name on FAL have to be the same.

    Bummer. I don't use the first part of my hyphenated last name in day to day life.

    I don't think I'll bother with them then.

    Thanks bro

    When using the Trade Me on my phone in the 'mobile friendly' version it always tells me my licence number is incorrect, then when I request the desktop site it works fine.

    I hate the mobile version. Its soo slllloooowww to load, and half the time it tries to make me look at canoes an shit, it won't let me bid on firearms either. I much prefer the desktop for browsing which is all I do now anyway as I've stopped buying from tardme.
    I also object to having to enter fal number just to ask a friggin question. Fuck em.
    dogmatix and northdude like this.

    They suspended my account when I refused to pay a $136 success fee for selling a rifle.
    Tardeme can go f**k themselves as far I'm concerned. No loss to me.
