It can be disheartening to go through the review process only to have your sales thread rejected. Below, I've listed some of the most common reasons why a Buy-Sell-Trade (BST) thread is rejected on BlackHatWorld. You Never Finished The Review This happens a lot more than you would think. Sellers can and often do forget about their BST submissions. Months may go by or even years, and if we don't receive a response back after a while, we may reject the thread and ask you to resubmit it once you're ready. Your Product or Service Was Not As Advertised Normally, we provide you with three attempts. However, if your product or service turns out to be grossly misadvertised, we may reject your sales thread. Your Accounts, VCCs, etc Are Hacked or Stolen We do not condone hacking on BlackHatWorld nor do we allow discussions, products, or services that involve hacking Your Service Was Not Related To Online Marketing We've seen some odd services in the marketplace, and while there's nothing wrong with the occasional odd service or two, what's important is that these services are related to online marketing. On the other hand, a member who decides to submit a BST for their used shoes will receive an immediate rejection. You're Reselling Another Member's Service Reselling another member's service is not allowed in the BHW marketplace. Your Service Is Illegal We don't allow illegal products or services in the marketplace Non-Compliance There are standards in the marketplace, so when a seller refuses to edit their thread based on those standards, we cannot proceed with the review. As you may have already guessed, this leads to the thread getting rejected. Failure To Read The Rules & Content Standards When you submit a marketplace thread, you check a box confirming that you've read the marketplace rules and content standards. However, if we look over your thread and see that you claimed you were offering the "best" service or didn't have a refund policy, we'll reject your thread right away. You Failed The Three Attempts We Gave You To Pass The Review As mentioned before, we usually provide sellers with three chances to pass a review. However, when a seller fails to properly provide what they're advertising in their sales thread after 3 attempts, we have no choice but to reject their thread.
