[Rules] The Black Market


In addition to the general board rules, which have to be observed across all sections, following regulations apply for The Black Market section. Possible rule violations can be reported by using button. Whenever a regulation is violated, immediate punishment - depending on the severity of violation - in form of either warning or infraction can be inflicted. More details regarding this can be found in Infractions & Warnings: Things You Should Know.

1. General
  1. Threads to accuse other users are forbidden. If you have been scammed, use our rating system and/or warn other users in the thread corresponding to your trade(and only there!). You can also try to get the user banned via the Support. Anywhere else accusations are forbidden. Keep in mind, that our rules also apply to negative feedback (especially #4.2).
  2. Active trade threads have to remain open. You are not allowed to keep your topic closed while you are actively bumping it. Please mark inactive trades visibly in your first post!
  3. You may only have one unclosed thread per offer. Similar offers or services (e.g. buying and selling elite*gold) are considered the same offer. However, opening multiple threads for related but different offers (e.g. selling Aion gold and WoW gold) is fine. It is also allowed to create an own thread for offers that differ considerably (e.g. game accounts).
  4. Rule 3 still applies when you let another user sell your goods (also known as reselling).
  5. If you want to support your offer with feedback, you may only use feedback that was given you on elitepvpers.
  6. During a trade only those details that were agreed upon in the trade request or private messages are binding. Agreements that contradict elitepvpers rules or conventions are always invalid!
  7. Selling products on external websites with automated delivery systems is not allowed. See #5.2 for exceptions.
  8. When offering hacks or cheats, it is mandatory that a screenshot or video is linked or embedded, where the UI can be seen.
  9. We reserve the right to act on suspicion!
2. TBM-Ratings:
  1. You are not allowed to give ratings for free offers or raffles.
  2. It is not allowed to rate an elite*gold transaction and additionally a trade request for the same trade.
  3. Ratings without a corresponding trade are not allowed.
  4. Ratings are voluntary and cannot be enforced. This applies to written feedback in trade topics as well!
  5. In general, any abuse of the rating system is strictly forbidden. When trading, the focus should always be the trade, not the rating. We reserve the right to intervene on suspicion and remove any ratings that have been pushed.
3. Forbidden Trades:
  1. Offers/Requests that violate our global board rules
  2. Goods and services that are acquired by illegal means or use illegal methods, this also applies for server files
  3. Goods that are unlimitedly available for free to everyone at the time of trading
  4. Accounts, software, and keys you do not have a voucher for (be it a scanned document or a digital voucher); the voucher has to be handed off to the buyer!
  5. Offers/Requests without a specific return (Example: "Offering 50 elite*gold, searching anything)
  6. Information, guides and such. elitepvpers stands for a free exchange of knowledge! Learn more about why we do not allow information trading
  7. Selling streaming accounts (Netflix, Spotify etc.) in large quantities, i.e. account shops (this also applies to trial accounts!)
  8. The Sale of random Keys and Accounts
  9. Loans. Handing out or requesting loans is undesired on elitepvpers.
  10. Investment services. Every service that is based on receiving money from a customer to invest this money or to bet on something is considered an investment service. Services like analyzing services, consulting services, and bet tip services are allowed.
  11. The sale of accounts where payments can be made and which contain personal data (such as PayPal, Skrill, Amazon or eBay). If you are not sure whether it is such a payment service provider account, please feel free to ask at any time.
4. Rules For Posting:
  1. You cannot bump threads by replying to them. Please use the button labeled "Bump" for this. If you want to give status updates (e.g. about our online status), we recommend editing those into your first post.
  2. Post only if you are interested in a trade or if you can constructively contribute to the topic.
    1. Please ensure, that your feedback is always given a reason.
    2. Meaningless posts (e.g. one-word posts like “Scammer”) are considered spam and violate our rules.
    3. Unless there is an accepted trade request, accusations without proof of payment and meaningful evidence (such as screenshots or videos), will not be tolerated and deleted without prior notice.
    4. If you want to post negative feedback, please take a look at #1.1.
  3. Advertising your service (e.g. Middleman, Bailing/"Trusting") in another thread without the thread-starter explicitly asking for it is not allowed.
  4. Bumping other users' threads is forbidden.
5. Trade requests:
  1. Requesting a trade is mandatory in all Black Market forums that support this feature (i.e. everywhere except middleman and freebies).
    See The Black Market Glossary for further details on the request a trade system.
  2. Selling products or services on external sites is only allowed if the site contains a backlink to Furthermore, automated shop systems (e.g. Sellix) or messenger shops (e.g. Discord) shall meet the following criteria:
    • Our Trade Request System must be used at all times. Our rules already state that failing to use our Trade System voids any appeal the user(s) may have.
    • At least 7 to 12 trades must have been processed (started, executed and finalized) beforehand. These must be effected between different persons/users.
  3. You are allowed to create a trade request for vouches, but as stated in rule #2.1 you are not allowed to rate it because you do not receive anything in return.
  4. Requesting vouch/feedback posts and/or trade ratings is only allowed if an actual trade has taken place. When doing so, you may not explicitly ask for positive feedback. Furthermore, it is allowed to reward the buyer for leaving a review, provided that a payment has already been made.
