June 28, 2021 - The Updated Marketplace Rules Can Be Found Here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-black-hat-world-marketplace-rules.1295700/

We've been running this service for about 3 years where members have asked us for help selling their services on BHW. In the last few months, demand has taken off so we thought a post about the process behind selling services would be best to explain the process and provide full transparency.

So you've noted that the account is younger than the thread they posted? How has this happened?

Sometimes a member has the good fortune to be able to sell their service. This can be in the form of purely selling a service they list on BHW through to selling the entire brand or company through the services of a company like our very own Meathead1234 co-owner of FE International.

Why is the Original Poster different to the person answering early questions about the thread?

We do this for transparency - the Original Poster (LINK) was the owner of the thread at the time these questions were being asked. The ownership of the thread is then passed to the new thread owner (LINK) . We then re-review the service to make sure the new user can supply as listed. We then update the ownership of the thread and set live.

The ownership of this marketplace thread remains unchanged - but it's provided by a new BHW username.
v's
A new supplier now provides this service.
For example
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/content-fish.1285308/
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/l...ite-30-day-trial.1113894/page-3#post-13044639
https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/b...hosting-from-1-82-site.1180527/#post-13044670
and sold https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/d...ows-linux-67-off.923142/page-25#post-13044698

Why not just hand over the BHW account?

Often a seller on the BHW marketplace will be providing more than 1 brand or service on BHW. When they sell their service, the buyer only purchases one of their services or brands so the marketplace services need to be split between 2 accounts. Usual marketplace rules apply https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/bhw-marketplace-rules-and-how-to-post.203/ .

Can I split out my thread before selling it so I have 2 accounts on BHW?

No

What's the process?

  1. We ask that a conversation is started with @Diamond Damien which includes both the buyer and the seller detailing:
    1. what is being sold (ie part of a thread, the whole service, the account)
    2. the price and
    3. date of transfer
  2. We check that everything is in order running through our own due diligence to ensure it's all correct and above board.
  3. We then put the new owner of the thread through the same marketplace review they would run through if they were fresh into the marketplace.
  4. If they pass this review with the same results as the previous owner there are no further changes. If there is an improvement/downgrading in service, then we reflect this in the review.
  5. We then create this thread - with the service as it was at the time of transfer (see below) explaining what's happened for transparency.

Detailed explanation DD but don’t you think this thread should be locked and stickied like other Ann threads
Not in this case @Mr Positive . At the bottom of every thread announcing a transfer we state
Please only comment on your thoughts relating to the thread here. Don't comment on the thread sales service. A thread relating to the process behind marketplace thread sales can be found here. https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-sale-transfer-of-marketplace-threads.1216842/
We don't want comments on the process behind the sale to derail the thread - thread hijacking don't need to ban myself ;)

@Diamond Damien I made a thread about this and was told that this is not allowed. If I am understanding correctly, this process allows us to sell our BHW marketplace thread to another BHW member ? If yes, how much can I expect for a sales thread generating $500 per month in profit ? How to go ahead with this ?

Hey @krishnaverma

drop me a pm and we can discuss further. Please check out the last para in the content above first to avoid disappointment.
We don’t set the price. As per the marketplace threads you’d set the pricing, we assume if you’re motivated to sell you’ll set a price that suits your situation.

Hi. Thank you, for this thread and info.
But i still have a little bit another question. (Sorry if it's not a right place to ask).

Can I cooperate with another person on the forum who has VIP status to create NEW a shared thread on the marketplace?
Where VIP will be owner and i will answer to questions and some other things.

No, in order to sell on the forum you have to have the proper membership level.
