  5. Q. Is a Trading Mate membership just for “tradies”?
    1. Not at all, Trading Mate is a national advertising platform for ALL businesses, but particularly suited to those with 0-14 employees. If you’ve got an ABN or are just starting a hobby business and have goods to sell or services to provide, we want YOU!
  6. Q. What about my financial details upon payment?
    1. Trading Mate operates all payment processing via eWAY through NAB, which means we cannot operate without all the correct security (SSL), nor can we store ANY of your financial information in or on our website. See our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for further information.
  7. Q. What’s this I hear about a TM website service?
    1. That’s the best bit! If you haven’t uploaded a website link, we will transpose your uploaded information into your very own three page website. The cost to activate this is just $198 and includes 2 years domain registration AND 2 years website hosting. The automatic domain name will be listed as your business name including your postcode eg. www.mybusiness4879.com.au, but you can easily do a search for a different .com.au name for the same price. (A post-coded domain name can be a positive for small business as it immediately identifies that business in their own particular region). You can accept, or decline and we save the information for you in case you would like to take this offer up at a later date.
