Install the Trade Runner extension for a quick and easy way to list and sell your products on Trade Me, New Zealands largest online marketplace. Trade Runner connects to your Magento store via the APIs and imports all of your active Magento products into Trade Runner. You can then choose which products you would like to sell on Trade Me. Trade Runner will create the listings on Trade Me and keep them updated in almost real time. For example, if a product sells out on your magento store, Trade Runner will update Trade Me and remove the listing so you don't oversell.

When a customer on Trade Me buys one of your products, Trade Runner will send the order back to your Magento store for fulfilment. 

You can also use Trade Runner to change product data such as price, product title or description before the listing is created on Trade Me without needing to change the products in your Magento store.
