Pass the Parcel is an online service provided by Post Haste Couriers. We have developed Pass the Parcel because we thought it was time for an easier way for people to courier their items around New Zealand. Pass the Parcel is the perfect solution for Trade Me sellers, and anyone else who needs to get something sent without hassle.

If using our packaging you do not need to have an account, provided you have a credit or debit card to pay for sending your items.

By linking your Trade Me account to Pass the Parcel, sold auction information will display within the Pass the Parcel site. This means you can send parcels without needing to enter delivery information.
Linking your Pass The Parcel and Trade Me accounts does not give Pass The Parcel the ability to login to your Trade Me account. Pass The Parcel will never ask for your Trade Me password. We request the minimum amount of information from Trade Me necessary to provide this service. Pass The Parcel will never change any of your personal details or bid on auctions. We will never supply this data to anybody else.
You can remove permission for Pass the Parcel to access your Trade Me account at any stage by deleting the application from My Trade Me. This immediately removes access for Pass The Parcel to be able to access your account. You can re-integrate at any time by linking your Trade Me account again.
After you have linked your Pass The Parcel account to your Trade Me account, you can access a list of items you have sold by clicking on Trade Me Items on the Pass The Parcel menu bar. You need to be logged in for this to display.
This screen shows a listing of items recently sold. From this screen, you can identify that a buyer will pick-up the item, delete items from the display and send your parcels.
To send a parcel, tick the box and click on the "Send your Parcel" link for the item you are ready to send.
If the buyer has entered a correct delivery address, this will automatically populate in the delivery address details for sending the item. If the system is unable to validate the address, please follow the prompts to clarify the delivery address.
We exclude some Trade Me categories as they are not suitable for sending with Pass The Parcel. Check our prohibited items list for further information. If you need to send an item that Pass The Parcel can't carry try our friends at Stuck.
Yes you can but note that, we have developed our Pass the Parcel service primarily as a cost effective service for Trade Me customers to transport lower value "ordinary" items, that they have bought and sold using Trade Me, within the North and South Islands of New Zealand. To reflect its tailored nature, the Pass the Parcel service is undertaken on the basis that our liability to you for loss of or damage to the goods is limited to the lesser of NZ$500 or the purchase price paid on Trade Me.
