About Up4Sale online auctions & shopping mall

Up4Sale is a content-rich eCommerce platform offering broad-reach to New Zealanders. A brand-oriented, semi curated lifestyle experience, featuring in season range. Up4Sale is the perfect platform for global, local and niche/micro brands to reach a highly-engaged New Zealand consumer. We provide you access to 3 million active customers, localised customer experience and service.

Launched recently, Up4Sale is New Zealand's newest online auctions and classifieds website. Reviewed as the best alternative to the main auctions marketplace, we set high standards for the industry, building the largest online shopping mall in New Zealand.

It took us two years to develop our bespoke system, so we can bring you the latest and the best technology in the world, in order to create the best online marketplace in New Zealand. We emphasise high standards of safety and security for our shoppers- hence we developed an internal messaging system to avoid scammers and misleading sellers.

This is your place for all online shopping- a true one stop shop for buying new or used products, plain or luxurious, common or rare items, trendy or unique. We also list services and jobs on our classifieds boards. To sum up- if it exists, it can be advertised or sold on Up4Sale.co.nz. 

Our mission is to be the New Zealand's favourite destination for discovering great value and unique selection of quality items.

By helping Kiwis to develop their online businesses, we support our local community. We give our sellers the platform, the technical solutions, and the support they need to grow their businesses and thrive. Here in Up4Sale, we focus on partnering with our sellers, not competing with them. We are building stronger connections between buyers and sellers with product experiences that are fast, safe, mobile friendly, and secure. We also engage the latest SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) practices to help you to gain higher ranking on Google for your products. 

On Up4Sale you can sell used and new items, both on auction style and fixed price style (Buy It Now items). If you prefer, you can also advertise your ads in a classified style, and use our monitored internal messaging system for maximum security.

All of that to bring you the best selling experience and to help you turn the things you no longer need into cash you can use. Unlike others, we performed vigorous tests on our bidding platform systems to check the stability and the performance quality, but also to make sure that all financial transactions are safe and secured (we don't have access to your financial information, and all transactions are being made securely on Paypal Servers (or your other preferred methods)). 

Being a leader in technology, we also developed some unique features- for example- "Make an offer"- for the first time in New Zealand you can suggest a price to the seller of a product and discuss it with him. In turn he can counter offer you and upon agreement you can conclude the transaction. No more waiting for after auction time! Some famous NZ auction website forbid any similar discussion with the seller, altogether, and see it as an attempt to avoid their excessive fees.

Mentioning fees- 

Up4Sale is absolutely FREE to use: we don't charge you any listing fees, succession fees, advertising or commission fees. Yes, that's right, absolutely nothing. We want to become the leader in NZ, and we want everyone to join us, not to consider fees in mind.

We believe that Kiwis can enjoy a better alternative to do business online, rather than paying excessive fees to foreign companies, which sometimes can make your business transactions completely uneconomic. For your financial transactions, we do not use any in-house system, but let you choose your own methods- with a variety of financial instruments- from PayPal, Paymate, Amazon Payments, Sagepay and more... Please login to your members area to set these up.

We also encourage you to open a FREE online store (No monthly fees, no commission on sales either!) so you can establish your brand online. You are in full control- you upload and change your business details, policies and specials anytime. People take you more seriously when you trade as a shop owner. You don't have to be in trade (own a New Zealand company) in order to open an online shop on Up4Sale, but please do consult with an accountant if you trade for living as we will cooperate with the tax authorities if required by law.  

Up4Sale is not new to the eCommerce world- the website early days started in 2009 (don't take our word for it check the web archive records, and our registered trademarks with the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand), when our CEO, Roy Rodriguez, MBA, was leading the new project as a true alternative to the other auction site in New Zealand. These were days of another free classifieds website, Sella, which was backed by another huge overseas company (Up4Sale is privately funded by the local management team). 
Due to a popular demand, a niche eCommerce website was developed, CraftMe.com - for arts and crafts makers. Gaining success in this arena, alongside with publicity appearance in newspapers, arts and crafts shows around Auckland and New Zealand, Up4Sale had some great ideas for the future...
Unfortunately, our CEO was involved in a car accident, which forced him to undergo a long rehabilitation process. Hence, the whole project was on hold for several years, and only in the last 2 years it was resumed. Gaining the experience with the success of CraftMe in a similar realm of multi vendors marketplace, with tens of thousands sellers and listings, we are certain that Up4Sale redeveloped website is poised for success.

However, we need your help to share all of this. Please take a minutes to sign-up, list a few items and share the news on social networks- you can find the link at the bottom of the Up4Sale website. 

So here to your success,
