    Just curious, why don't you guys integrate a payment system in BST and services section to avoid all these shitlist scams going on?

    1) There many freelance sites that don't have problems with hackers
    2) If it is government because of "blackhat" i think they would've done something lone time ago

    Watch this space. We are working on new things for the marketplace and testing ideas. Unfortunately though, these things take time, as we don't want to chuck it in and then it break the forum or it not work out. We will have something to share soon though.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Not sure if you guys already came up with this, but what if you guys implemented a review/rating system? I know there's is the chance of fake reviews. But most freelance sites have review/rating systems without much problems or else they would've disposed them.

    Nevermind looks like you guys have the iTrader which works the same, fair enough.
    Only thing i would say is people can leave fake reviews, but i haven't used this feature yet so i could be wrong.

    Do you mean like an Escrow service? Because the last thing BHW needs is liability for keeping track of payments and holding the money. That system would burden staff, cause tons of legal complications, and where should the cash be held in PayPal?

    The iTrader system works great and there's plenty of metrics in place for catching iTrader inflation. The last fact is that for a community of this size the shit list is really small and most of the complaints are from transactions outside of the marketplace.

    Another system means another expenses for BHW as well.
    Imagine, you get charge from Paypal then you'll get charge again from BHW's payment methods. Link the credit card details also another issue. What if our credit card details get hack? The BHW need to think twice for this. Just my suggestion. :)
