What to Know About a Product Listing with Watchers

One of the common questions we get is whether a product listing on Trade Me that has watchers, will be blocked on Trade Me immediately after the product is blocked on Trade Runner? Or perhaps the product will just not update on the next renewal?

When a product is blocked on Trade Runner, it would be withdrawn from Trade Me as if there's zero inventory, even if the product is watchlisted. There can be instances when there'd be some delay between a product being blocked on Trade Runner and it being withdrawn from Trade Me, but it should eventually be withdrawn from Trade Me even if it is watchlisted.
