strongly recommend you read our About Buying policy before you buy a product from our
Here at Ads NZ we
don't have any imput between the buyer and seller, when the transaction of a product takes
place. We can however, give you the best methods, to prevent you from getting ripped off.
Email the seller
before you buy the product. Ask questions about the product you are looking to buy. Make
sure you know everything about the product before you buy it. Try to see a photograph of
the product before you buy the it.
When Emailing the seller ask him/ her how you will pay for the product. Find out how it
could be delivered to you. If you live around the area of the seller, perhaps you could
pick it up or the seller could drop it of to you. At least that way you can look at the
product before you buy it.
Otherwise the alternative option is to get the product delivered to you. This however is
where risks start to come in! There is no guarantee as to the safety of your buy. Make
sure you communicate with the seller before you buy the product. Perhaps you would like to
talk to the seller via the phone to make sure that the product is exactly what you want.
Methods of payment can include a cheque or depositing the money directly into the sellers
The cost of delivery can be a major factor. Products like cd's can normally be delivered
nationwide for around $2.40c. Just remember the bigger the product gets the more it costs
Discuss who will pay for the delivery, wheather you want to pay half each, or the seller
pays or you pay. Make sure you both know before you buy the product.
Generally by having high levels of communication with the seller both yourself and the
seller can both feel safe and be satisfied by your trade. GOODLUCK with you trade, the
rest is now up to you!
I sent the money to
the seller and they didn't send the goods!
Firstly, make sure you have given the seller ample time to send the goods. If you have
sent the money directly to the seller and you have not got the goods then it is very
difficult for us to resolve the issue. Hopefully you do have the name of the seller and
can then contact the Police. If you do not have the name of the seller contact the police
regardless. We will assist the Police to help track the identity of the fraudulent seller
at their request.
We will not provide any additional information on traders unless this is at the request of
