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.
