First of all all members are kindly asked to be honest regarding package delivery, product quality and shipping conditions. This helps maintaining a trusted network, which is a major basis in hidden web marketplaces. Scammers are not tolerated and are quickly identified as such. As a buyer you can look out for a "trusted vendor" label. Vendors with this label have an advanced trusted status, which means they have proven to be trustworthy and they have a long history of successful transactions and positive buyer relations. Vendors without the trusted vendor status are most likely trustworthy too, but they are either new on this market or they did not apply for a trusted vendor status on this site.

In order to be able to do purchases you have to use tor and bitcoins to use this site. You will see your bitcoin deposit immediately after you have send bitcoins to your Dream Market wallet address. For safety reasons the final bitcoin deposit confirmation will take about 30 minutes in average (3 confirmations), this is due to the bitcoin internal workings.
Here is a good tutorial about how to use Bitcoins:
Getting started with Bitcoin
Protect yourself with PGP
To protect yourself you should prefer secure encrypted messaging with PGP. Especially when you leave your postal address you are encouraged to encrypt those information. Dream Market supports automatic encryption of your messages.
All vendors support PGP and have specified a public PGP key on their profile. If you encrypt messages using their public key you can be sure that only the vendor can read you message and your postal address is safe from leakage to any organization, including Dream Market.
There are guides and tutorials about how to use PGP which you can find online.
Linux is the most secure operating system of these 3 listed operating systems from above, because Microsoft and Apple cannot be fully trusted and whose source code is not open source.
Escrow is a safe method to order online and is used almost everywhere. When you order a product with the escrow method then the money is not directly transfered to the vendor after the checkout process, but it is locked. When you receive the package you finalize the order from you shopping cart page. With this step the vendor is paid.
After your bitcoin deposit has been confirmed you can order the desired product if your balance is not too low. The vendor will receive the order information instantly, no further action is required. However the vendor needs to be online to view the new order.
While you have open orders which have not yet been finalized you are required to check your messagebox regularly in case the vendor has open questions.
After you have received the package you have to finalize the order. With this step the escrow is released and the vendor is paid. Please leave adequate feedback and rating stars when finalizing the order. You can update the feedback and rating stars after you have finalized. When leaving feedback for an order you should only give negative feedback after you have contacted the vendor to give him a chance of resolving the issues.
In case of problems
If you do not receive the order after an adequate time you have the possibility to open a dispute. Please contact the vendor first before you open a dispute. Please be honest when you open a dispute, do not open a dispute if you have received the package. You will find the dispute link from your order detail page, which is linked in your cart view.
Registration as vendor requires a deposit of vendor bond, which is paid back when the vendor revokes his vendor status. Application for vendor status can be done with this link.

- Weapons of mass destruction: chemical, biological, explosives, etc.
