    So I bought this "stuff" for personal use from a friend.
    This is not available in my country at all even tho there is a high search volume for it each month.

    It is not really exactly completely kinda sorta allowed to sell so I want to do business anonymously to prevent hassle.

    My plan..

    1. Buy domain / hosting anonymously from ititch.

    2. Set up wordpress woocommerce webshop with this plugin:
    /plugins/bitcoin-payments-for-woocommerce/

    3. Get high in Google with my SEO skills.

    4. Buy the stuff from my friend.

    5. Start selling it online..

    So thats my plan, im quite a n00b and this just seems to easy..
    If this is possible then why are these onion shops so populair?

    I will be very carefull and always use TOR + VPN + PUBLIC WIFI (no live cd :/)
    But im just curious what will happen next..

    Will they block my domain or something?

    With my limited n00b perspective I cannot see how they can stop this.
    Or it will take at least some time and during that time I can cash allot and travel and stuff.

    The only problem I foresee is that I need to log in to check orders everyday.
    I would need to go to public wifi every single day which is not nearby.. :/

    Shipping is no problem at all I just use post stamps and throw them in the mail.
    I will disclose this on the site so users know the potential risk of it not arriving.

    Of course it would take some convincing for users to send bitcoins to someone anonymous.
    But I really want to make a good business and hope that reviews will spread the good word so orders keep coming.
    This is not the issue I am concerned about.

    My question is more:

    Am I missing something?
    And why are other people not doing this?
    Is it safe?
    Any advice?


    Very kind greetings and best to you all!!!! ;)

    You have to understand that you are always at the mercy of provider. BTC, sure, protects your incoming funds from nasties like PP, but do understand if you anger the US Government they will bring that hosting company down. Something to have in mind at all times.

    Depends what you're selling and what country you're in.

    They can block it on the DNS level, e.q. your domain will redirect to a sink hole instead your server.

    Additionally, you'll endanger your buyers, most of them dont use TOR obviously (they find you on Google). So dont expect any returning visitors. :)

    What are you even talking about? He didnt success and you say government will take his site down? In my opinion, he will go down faster himself.

    You send packages without tracking no? What if your customers dont receive package or says he didnt? Are you sure peope will feel safe to buy on your page (will they even consider buying)? Only btc payments, no feedback, no company information.

    You can connect using 3g>vpn>tor(whonix)>socks, untrackable if you know how to be invisible

    Sending it in the post is risky.

    Most proper businessmen wrap it in condoms and send it via airmail inside someone's stomach.
