Alphabay Market Rules

NO harming others (hitman service, murders etc.). We do not conduct or condone any violence through Alphabay market website.

NO guns/guns discussions (even for self-defense). Reinforces rule #1.

NO terrorism related products, services or propaganda. Regardless of what you think or feel about a topic or country or anything, this is not the place for it especially if it involves hate or violence. We are a place of business, constructive community discussions and opportunities. Reinforces rule #1 and #2.

NO erotica/porn/softcore of any sorts (logins for major sites are okay). Child porn, animal abuse videos cover this rule – we have never previously allowed anything like this and we will not start doing now as it is something we strongly oppose that on Alphabay Market.

NO fentanyl or fentanyl-laced/based substances (even if it is done ‘correctly’). We no longer allow fentanyl or substances laced/based on it due to buyer safety. Greedy & amateur vendors have ruined this for everyone on Alphabay Market.

Interesting fact, in the US street-dealing and DNMs have been blamed by mainstream media for the opioid crises while ignoring the companies which create OxyCodone and the likes, which not only amount for the majority of deaths but also unfortunately are the start journey for many addicts.

NO Covid-19 vaccines/cures or vaccines of any sorts. There is no real way for Staff to check these products as the effects of taking it can vary person to person.

NO any Russia/Belarus/Kazakhstan/Armenia/Kyrgyzstan-related activity (people, organizations, companies, critical infrastructure, non-profits, governments) or citizens data. We are now specifying which other CIS countries can NOT have activity of any sorts or data related on this website.

NO ransomware selling, recruiting for access to deploy ransomware or ransomware discussions.

NO hate-speech against any religion, culture, skin colour, profession. Try being polite and respectful of others. When you are not towards another user, specify a constructive, logical & preferrably fact-based reason(s) why that is the case.

On Alphabay Market no doxing of any kind regardless if you are buyer or seller. Releasing other peoples’ information is strictly forbidden and it will result in an immediate ban on Alphabay Market.

NO outside escrow sales on Alphabay Market. For safety of both buyers and sellers we warn you that making a transaction outside of our secure escrow is 100% your responsibility. If a vendor/buyer is asking you to do that he might be attempting to scam you, immediately report that user.

NO advertising for non-approved off-market services or websites. Non-vetted and especially off-market services or websites can not be advertised under any circumstances. You MUST seek approval by Administration before linking your website (on your listing, forum profile signature etc.)

We may change, add, remove or otherwise alter in any sort, shape or form the Rules and Terms of Service without the need to notify any user. It is the responsibility of the user to keep an eye of the global website rules at any given time and Staff will not accept excuses such as ‘not being up to update’ with rules when e.g. placing warnings via our warning system for breaking of certain rules.

Global Buyer Rules / Terms of Service on Alphabay Market

Adhere to all global AlphaBay market rules. No exceptions.

Attempts to scam other users or vendors can result in being given warning points, account limitation or permanent ban – all on a case-by-case basis and per discretion of Staff.

NO sending spam, unwanted messages or links through Conversations (Private Messages) on the platform. To prevent abuse & spam as a new buyer you will have a limit of 12 conversations (excluding dispute/escrow conversations or conversations started by another user).

As your account ages, you are more active and most importantly your Trust Level (TL) increases that limit will become higher. For true conversations experience, use the Forum to contact vendors/other users. Marketplace conversations are meant to be short and they self-delete if inactive.

NO Trust/Distrust begging. Trust Level works by taking into account many factors but most importantly what is the trust factor of a user who has clicked Trust or Distrust on a given profile. As a buyer you can politely ask vendors to rate you ‘Trust’ if they feel like it.

Harassing them or other users on the platform for this is NOT ALLOWED. Revenge ‘Distrust’ by one or multiple individuals against one or several individuals is also NOT ALLOWED on Alphabay Market.

Disputes require any buyer to respond within 3 days (72 hours). If buyer does not respond, the ADR will be cancelled, a live moderator will be assigned to the dispute and most likely rule in vendors favour.

NO hacking or abusing the platform whatever the reason. Security testing, hacking, attempting to manipulate the system is NOT ALLOWED unless a permission has been obtained from Administration. We encourage bug testing and have our own bug bounty program but only to those who apply beforehand and request permission are eligble for rewards.

Dispute decisions by Staff are final. If you believe Staff has mistreated you or rulled incorrectly you can always create a ticket and encrypt your message with PGP only available to members of Administration. While we can not reverse the decision of that specific dispute, we can take a look into the Staff members to ensure our high quality standars are met and applied fairly for everyone.

If your account becomes limited you can ask Staff for reasoning. It should be reflected through warning points in your profile. You will not be able to buy listings etc. Most notably you will have your wallet access frozen until your account limitation is removed or you get banned.

If your account is banned in almost all cases you will receive nothing. All of your funds will be forfeited. Rare cases where you will be allowed to withdraw funds would be where you would prefer account ban instead of account deletion etc.

Global Vendor Rules / Terms of Service

Adhere to all global AlphaBay market rules. No exceptions on Alphabay Market.

Attempts to scam users or other vendors can result in being given warning points, account limitation or permanent ban – all on a case-by-case basis and per discretion of Staff.

NO sending spam, unwanted messages or links through Conversations (Private Messages) on the platform. To prevent abuse & spam as a new vendor you will have a limit of 1000 conversations (excluding dispute/escrow conversations or conversations started by another user).

As your account ages, you are more active and most importantly your Trust Level (TL) increases that limit will become higher. For true conversations experience, use the Forum to contact buyers/other users. Marketplace conversations are meant to be short and they self-delete if inactive.

NO feedback padding of any sorts. If our systems alert Staff such actions are being taken it can result in being given warning points, account limitation or permanent ban – all on a case-by-case basis and per discretion of Staff.

Becoming a vendor requires few easy steps and a vendor bond. Only very established vendors can request bond waiver as we do not have much trust in feedback by other marketplaces.

NO Trust/Distrust begging. Trust Level works by taking into account many factors but most importantly what is the trust factor of a user who has clicked Trust or Distrust on a given profile. As a vendor you can politely ask buyers to rate you ‘Trust’ if they feel like it. Harassing them or other users on the platform for this is NOT ALLOWED. Revenge ‘Distrust’ by one or multiple individuals against one or several individuals is also NOT ALLOWED on Alphabay Market.

Disputes require any vendor to respond within 3 days (72 hours). If vendor does not respond, the ADR will be cancelled, a live moderator will be assigned to the dispute and most likely rule in buyers favour.

NO hacking or abusing on Alphabay Market whatever the reason. Security testing, hacking, attempting to manipulate the system is NOT ALLOWED unless a permission has been obtained from Administration. We encourage bug testing and have our own bug bounty program but only to those who apply beforehand and request permission are eligble for rewards.

While we can not reverse the decision of that specific dispute, we can take a look into the Staff members to ensure our high quality standars are met and applied fairly for everyone.

If your Alphabay Market account becomes limited you can ask Staff for reasoning. It should be reflected through warning points in your profile. You will not be able to create new listings, edit listings, all your listings will be deactivated, no new orders etc. Most notably you will have your wallet access frozen until your account limitation is removed or you get banned.

If your Alphabay Market account is banned in almost all cases you will receive nothing. All of your funds will be forfeited and if there have been victims of a scam, the funds will be equally divided between them. Rare cases where you will be allowed to withdraw funds would be something like your products being inferior or you getting rejected by the market etc.

Purchasing Rules / How It Works / Safety Guidelines

All purchases you make within our marketplace are through our Escrow System. When you click ‘Confirm Purchase’ your money will go into an escrow for protection of both the buyer and the seller. Neither party can withdraw the money until the sale is finalized.

The money stays safe in escrow until you confirm you have received the goods to the advertised standard and you are satisfied with it. Once you release escrow the money goes to the seller and the sale is finalized. This means you can not dispute or get your money back once the sale is finalized.

If for some reason the goods are not satisfactory or there is another issue then you can choose to dispute.

Unlike other marketplaces we have the Automatic Dispute Resolver (ADR) system to speed-up the dispute process. When you dispute first the ADR system will be available to you to instantly work out a solution with the vendor directly, no waiting for moderators, no delays.

It is basically a proposition system between buyer and seller involving extending escrow time, full refund, percentage refund or replacement options. Both parties can accept or deny proposition(s) from the other side.

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND using ADR because it is exactly the same steps a moderator would take during a dispute without the need to babysit both parties. Even if you do not reach an agreement with the vendor, you would know where you stand or you would have tried certain options like reshipping/replacement of goods.

The system has been designed to ensure quick resolution if needed by moderator by looking at what has already happened. Our experience previously has shown us over the years that a system like ADR is the future of how marketplaces will handle their disputes.

If for some reason, at any given time ADR does not work for you and you can not reach an agreement or simply refuse to use it at all, there is always an available moderator to look into it in less than 24 hours.

Disputing a sale can damage your reputation as a buyer if your reason for disputing is not good. Some small issues can be simply reflected on the rating you give the vendor at the end of the sale. Reasons like ‘I changed my mind’, ‘I miscliked’, ‘I didn’t read listing refund policy’ are NOT ACCEPTABLE

Escrow will auto-finalize after a certain period. Please release escrow as soon as you have received and are satisfied with the goods. Always delaying until the last minute to release escrow or always leaving it up to auto-finalize will hurt your reputation as a user (Trust Level).

Sales of digital items auto-finalize in 2 days (48 hours).

Sales of physical items auto-finalize in 7 days (168 hours).

If you have not received your goods before the auto-finalize time then dispute the order and using ADR select to extend escrow time. Doing that ensures moderators do not get clogged up with disputes where basically they have to wait until the first package arrives and everyone can get fair and fast dispute resolution.

If a seller asks you to send coins outside Escrow system DO NOT SEND IT. Transactions outside of Escrow are NOT PROTECTED and it is at your own risk

If you have not received the goods or the goods are not what you expected/other issue and the seller asks you to finalize the sale regardless of what he/she is promising DO NOT FINALIZE IT. Raise a dispute and deal with it there. If you finalize a sale prematurely and get scammed for some reason you can raise a report against the vendor but your funds are not recoverable.

Sellers which have been verified with a good track record can have on rare cases Finalize Early (FE) listings. FE means you bypass escrow and you directly pay the seller. FE is given only to trusted and vetted sellers but it is entirely up to you to do your research and are completely certain you trust the seller.

If you feel the seller has scammed you and the listing is FE instead of Escrow mode then quickly create a report on the user and the listing. If the vendor decides to run off with your money and a lot of buyers have created reports, it will get flagged to ScamWatch/Staff to quickly limit sellers account and stop the scam from occuring.

We highly recommend you PGP encrypt your shipping address on your own. This small but important step can stand between you and getting a knock on the door by Law Enforcement (LE).

You can find the sellers PGP key on their profile or shown just before you purchase. We have an automatic function to encrypt address/buyer notes but it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you PGP encrypt notes on your own.

!!! VERY IMPORTANT READ ALL FURTHER DOWN !!!

Save the following recovery key. Once you have submitted that you accept the rules of the website, your account will be bound to that wallet recovery key. The wallet recovery key is the only way to access and recover your funds in case of attack or raid on our servers, network, infrastructure or detention/arrest of administrators.

Several dedicated and automated systems are progressively checking if the website is down, if the servers are raided, if specific network node is offline, and other hidden factors which help us determine if everything is alright and not tampered with in any way (from system files, to disk cloning, to USB injection attempts, to network sniffers, even routing attacks). We have taken many months to build and perfect the system (AlphaGuard) as well as beta test it and we are very proud of our achievement. All requests and queries are done in anonymous and decentralized way with a stealthy, custom and multiple-algorithm-changing approaches to avoid detection or being used against us in future in some form. We have additional systems to monitor the systems which monitor the websites which use totally different methods to check it.

Question: Why do you need as user wallet recovery key?

Answer: Let us take the theoretical scenario if any our systems detect an anomaly. Our systems will go into lockdown mode. Lockdown mode has to be disabled by administrators manually within 72 hours otherwise the systems launch the wallet recovery mode. Through different channels on the Internet will be posted the onion and/or i2p addresses of the withdraw pages.

The withdraw pages are standalone and require 3 pieces of identification to allow withdraw of the funds: username, password, wallet recovery key. You CAN NOT do anything without having all 3 elements. After you have entered your information you will be granted with a field for your public or internal XMR address which you must fulfill. You CAN NOT choose to withdraw small pieces of your wallet, the wallet does not give that option or specify how much you want to withdraw. You WITHDRAW ALL FUNDS AT ONCE NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL THE AMOUNT IS.

Several weeks after withdraw mode has been running (we are not specifying for security reasons but it is more than 2 and less than 8), the self-destruct mode will kick-in which will ERASE ALL DATABASES, FILES, SYSTEMS AUTOMATICALLY. Once completed that will be the end of it. No way to recover anything ever again, not for customers, not for us, not for Law Enforcement (LE).

We take our and the security of our customers as top priority and we will not allow any kind of attacks to be successful in penetrating our defense layers. We are prepared with automated and tested systems alongside 24/7/365 administration/security to respond and react to any type of breach or even anomaly in set of operations.

NOTICE: In the theoretical situation which we described above if the password you are entering is not working, a very likely solution will be that you changed your password before we made a backup or the system can not reach one of the latest backups so it reverts to an older one. Ensure you save at least your previous password to avoid such scenario. All passwords are hashed in accordance to security language best practices and techniques, we rely on proven and tested methods plus crypto and do not roll our own mechanisms for obvious reasons.

Your wallet recovery key is:

xmr_wallet_nugNk8ll3UPBsWG5JRKuA5LDuvI1YRy17yWRn2hD10Z3oUR0LpNoQj

DO NOT lose the key above or you will NEVER BE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR FUNDS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY. NEVER EVER disclose your wallet recovery not to other users, not to even staff or administrators. The key is for your eyes only.

Question: Why do you need account recovery phrase?

Answer: The account recovery phrase is used to recover/reset your password. It is used in case forgot your password and you need to proof account ownership. Accounts which have PGP 2-FA (two-factor authentication) enabled will only be able to recover account by accessing their PGP key and decrypting a message to prove they are indeed the owner.

Your account recovery phrase on Alphabay Market is:

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DO NOT lose the phrase above or you will NEVER BE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNT AGAIN. That phrase is the only way to reset your password if you do not have PGP 2-FA enabled. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND enabling PGP 2-FA (two-factor authentication) to ensure highest level of security.

If you DO NOT agree to these rules CLOSE THIS PAGE AND LEAVE THIS WEBSITE. You CAN accept the rules and disagree with them at the same time BUT you MUST FOLLOW THE RULES AT ALL TIMES NO EXCEPTIONS regardless of how you feel about them. Any time you feel the rules are not fair you can either engage in constructive conversation with community members and staff or LEAVE THIS WEBSITE if no change is possible at that time.
