Trade Me launches Rummage

Trade Me has just launched Rummage.co.nz, a visual display site that draws its images from Trade Me listings.

As reported by Chris Keall at NBR:

Trade Me worked with two Californian entrepreneurs,¬†Matt Inouye and Eugene Otto, to create the new site. The pair have previously used eBay’s API to create¬†Rumma.ge.

Rummage is something of an experiment for Trade Me, so it’s not currently incorporated into the main site. Trade Me reckons Rummage is great for mobile.

The new service is a very interesting adaptation of the Pinterest scrapbooking notion. In its current iteration, Rummage is very basic — but it’s an indicator of future possibilities.

How do you get your own images onto Rummage? You’ll need to create Gallery listings on Trade Me.
