- To block an entire group of products you can use the Product Exclusions feature. Go to Settings – Trade Me - General – then scroll down to the ‘Product Exclusion’ section.
- To block all products from a particular Brand, type the brand into ‘Excluded brands’. In the below example, all products with the brand 'Apple' will not list.
- To block all products with a particular Keyword, type the keyword into ‘Exclude by keyword in product name’ In the below example, all products with iPhone and iPad will not list.
- To block a whole category from your eCommerce store, Start typing the name of the category in the field 'Excluded products by these categories' In this example, all products in the retailer category 'Accessories - Phone Covers' will be blocked.
When you enter the Brand or Keyword, use double quotations to block the exact word e.g "phone" will only block phone. If you leave out the double quotations and just put phone then if a word has phone in it then that will be blocked for example iphone will be blocked
