We've seen a lot of new members asking how they can sell on BHW's marketplace. With the addition of the Marketplace Seller Accounts it's become slightly more open than it used to be. So I've put together this guide that should answer everything you need to know to begin selling on BHW.
Before you begin reading this it's best you read our marketplace rules to become familiar with what we expect from sellers before you plan your first marketplace thread.
Who can sell on BHW's marketplace?
BHW allows basically anyone to sell on it's marketplace as long as they meet 3 basic criteria:
- They upgrade to the correct account type, explained below.
- They are free from infractions or warnings on their account.
- They pass the marketplace review process.
What account level do I need?
I've put together a very basic diagram to help you decide
Important note: You do not have to be free from warnings to upgrade your account to Jr VIP. There are many other benefits to upgrading explained here. But if you are upgrading with the sole intention to post a sales thread on BHW then I would advise you to fix your account issues first.
How do I know if my account has warnings?
You can see if you currently have an active warning on your profile if you visit this tab.
As you can see despite this user having a lot of warnings, none of them are active anymore and they are able to sell on BHW.
If you do have a warning you can PM the Staff Member who issued the warning in a calm and professional manner and if you can prove you have learned from your mistake I'm sure they will think about expiring the warning early. However this is entirely down to them, if you try and get around this process by approaching another Moderator or Admin your account will be warned again.
How will you review my product?
The exact process will vary from thread to thread but you will be expected to complete your service or deliver your product so we can use it on our test websites to make sure your product delivers what you say it will. If your thread requires extra items for the review process (such as domains, hosting, proxies or social accounts) you will be expected to deliver these as well.
This product must be delivered for free and we will pick the highest level/most expensive version of your product that you list on your thread to prove you can deliver exactly what you say you can.
We've explained the review process in a little more detail over on this thread: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-review-process-explained.1036647/
What if I fail the review?
We will explain exactly why your product failed the review. As soon as this is done you can fix the issues we have and resubmit your thread right away.
I don't want to spend any money, can I still sell on BHW?
Sorry, but to protect our community all sales threads must go through this process. If you don't want to upgrade your account, pay the $30 marketplace listing fee if your thread is approved, or try to get around our rules by selling outside of the marketplace your account will be banned.
