    How about a new level of membership named "Jr. VIP+"?

    The normal Jr. VIP membership (which is rising in cost from $97 to $147 beginning in July) grants members with the privilege of submitting services to the marketplace and access to non-public forum sections.

    However, I believe a new membership level would be advantageous; one that, by design, is intended for the "more serious" sellers that want advanced selling tools and on-forum privileges.

    This could be a $199-$299 annual membership.

    Jr. VIP+ membership would:
    • Give holders of this membership a GOLD avatar border
    • Allow marketplace sellers to host checkout pages on BHW
    • Provide vendors with order-mgmt. software that organizes member usernames with specific orders
    • Offer service providers a "progress tracking" toolkit that's transparent between seller/customer
    • Offer Jr. VIP+ holders a 50% discount on service-submission fees to the marketplace
    • Give vendors 3 monthly credits to BUMP their service thread at "any" given time (NO monthly rollover - credits reset monthly)
    The marketplace here has really taken off, to say the least. Each day, thousands of visitors are responsible for the hundreds of orders that BHW seller's receive. I feel that BHW implementing software designed for sellers will streamline the order process for vendors/buyers and will also make orders more easily trackable.

    It could be a simple page that displays all orders received through the BHW-hosted checkout page and would have an itemized list of the member usernames that have placed orders. Here, sellers could correspond with the buyer for that order, mark the job as "in progress" or "complete", and would also have the ability to share files directly (not something currently available).

    Of course, BHW's server usage would increase; hence, the $199-$299 cost for such privileges.

    While an interesting idea, I am doubtful that the amount of time and costs associated with developing an inbuilt order management, checkout and progress tracking software toolkit would offset the $50 to $150 additional yearly fee you are suggesting. Keep in mind while there are a good number of Jr. VIPs on this site, there are likely only a few hundred active service providers whose sales threads make enough to warrant the added cost.

    In that case, offer the extra features and don't up-charge it. :)

    Soon.
    You can purchase it here. However, keep in mind that you need to be a member for at least 60 days with 100+ quality posts in order to be eligible.

    not a good idea sorry

    the forum based on trust , those that pay are suppose to be well trusted and supporting the forum.

    if you start adding heigh fees your get stolen content and added to clone forums

    ppl already complain about cost now , i can just imagine a full increase .

    wont work will cause copied content and underground forum

    only blackhatworld will suffer .

    the price is affordable for jrvip even it the member comes on now and then .

    the blackhatworld is a communty and trust is devolep from each other even thu pm system not public .

    i dont see any benifits that a member can get from any more payed features sorry .

    infact might even destroy what already here !

    1 more point .....

    blackhatworld no of the scams and got a shitlist , but i have notice a lot of people wonting blackhatworld more controll over teansaction becouse of scams.

    if blackhatworld does open a new transaction facilty to protect blackhatworld users from money scsms of course there have to be a increase for sale advertisers, a person for the accounts will be 1 person needed to be fully employed and full transaction integration facility.

    i think it comming but dont no when , i am sure it been discussed many times

    will cause more fraud or staff to look afther that system.

    look at the shit list already packed with problams .

    I think that is a very good idea, we talk about fees for one year.
    For JR VIP - 100$/year this means 8.33$/month
    For JR VIP+ - 150$/year this means 12.5/month
    With JR VIP+ a BHW member have access in non-public sections!

    In my opinion 150$ for one year isn't too much and another important detail: with high fees BHW will have high quality sellers!

    Also I think that BHW must to have an escrow service.

    With an escrow service the "shit list" will be shorter

    First, get a Jr. VIP. Then suggest changes, anyway it is a good idea. But I think that it would be better instead of charging users for a + membership, maybe BHW can take commission of transactions and work as if it were an ESCROW.

    Or we can have a prize system with the vote points. Honestly, I’m not rich but I also don’t mind donating money just to make this forum a little more fun :)

    Like users with points can earn for example:

    10 votes can trade for a new BHW emoji
    25 votes can earn you a BHW sticker
    100 votes can earn you a poster
    1000 votes for a BHW hat and so on
