How can I upgrade to a vendor account?

[+] Upgrades (Buyer Pro & Vendor)

The fee to upgrade to a normal vendor account is $200.
If you chose this upgrade, you will be able to post Escrow listings, and as well sell on the Auto-Shop.
The fee to upgrade to a Autoshop-only vendor is $50. Autoshop is for digital products only (CC, Accounts, Ebooks).

Is the vendor upgrade fee refundable?
No, it is not.

Can the vendor fee be waived?
The vendor fee can be waived if you are a active vendor on another DNM and have a good feedback score.
We will verify that you are the vendor that you claim through PGP.

How can I list Half-FE and FE listings?
Once you have reached +300, -0, 100% positive feedback you are eligible to request for Half-FE
Once you have reached +600, -0, 100% positive feedback you are eligible to request for FE
The request can be made by opening a support ticket, from there a staff member will thoroughly review your account to ensure that all of your orders and feedback are legitimate.
If your request is approved you will be directed to pay a specified fee.

What is different about receiving a stealth order?


If you receive a stealth order, it will not be much different than a regular order, besides communication with the buyer can only be done on the order page.
Shipping stealth orders and providing support for these orders if needed, is expected to be just the same as normal orders.

What if I suspect a buyer trying to scam me?


Open a support ticket regarding the buyer and order then provide details of your suspicion.
Buyers scamming vendors is taken just as serious as vendors scamming buyers, and will be looked into thoroughly by staff.

How can I "feature" one of my listings?

To feature a listing you will have to navigate to the Karma section.
The cost to feature a listing is .1 Karma points

Karma points are given to buyers when a order is finallzed.
Buyers then can send any amount of Karma points that they have earned to any vendor that they feel deserve them.

Should my shipments have tracking numbers?

This is ultimately a personal choice, however it could help in the case of if a dispute was to arise about a order not being received.
If you put tracking on any shipment, it is strongly recommend to not provide tracking numbers to buyers, doing so could compromise your self.
If a issue was to arise with a order where the tracking number was necessary, it can be and should only be provided to a staff member in a encrypted message.

What if I do not want to accept a certain currency?
Vendors can choose which currencies they will accept as payment for orders under

Navigate to vendor panel.


PGP & 2FA Requirement

You must enable 2FA on your account before being able to use the market.
It is required for all vendors to add a PGP key to their profile and activate 2FA.
Any vendor accounts without a PGP key and 2FA activated, will not be able to access their account until they have done so.
If you need help getting a PGP key visit this link: www.dewinter.com.

Scamming Buyers


We do not tolerate vendors who attempt to scam buyers, and we actively monitor for all types of scamming with every vendor.
If you are found to be or attempting to scam a buyer your account will be banned.

What if a buyer never releases/finalizes a escrow order?
On every order there is a auto-release timer, for physically shipped orders this timer will start at 14 days once the order has been marked shipped by the vendor. For digital ship orders, the auto-release timer is 2 days. Once the auto-release timer hits 0 days, you can then force release the order, and you will be credited for the order.
