- Switch your TOR security from “Standard”, to “Safer” or “Safest”.

How Anonymous is World Market?
Like any other darknet market, World Market is on the dark web. Hence, it can’t trace or log your actual IP address.
Also, hopefully you have the VPN running. Which also makes sure your actual IP address stays hidden.
More importantly, it has an automated log clearance policy. Meaning, all deposit/withdrawal histories are permanently purged after 7 days. This further ensures anonymity.
All in all, it’s just as anonymous as any other dark web market. The registration too is 100% anonymous. Here’s a guide on how to register on World Market.
How many, and which products does World Market sell?
This actually is one of the most impressive aspects on this World Market review.
The market had less than 600 products a week back. Today? The total product stock stands at over 3363 listings! Also, these aren’t fake-listings. We’ve verified the products to be actually listed on the marketplace.
Without doubt, “Drugs” is the most well-stocked category. This one category has 2000+ listings by itself! We love how it has very narrow categorization. Meaning, Drugs has Cannabis, and Cannabis further is classified into Hash, Buds and flowers, Concentrates etc.
The next most product-rich category is the “Fraud” with 551 listings. It sells bank logins, dumps, login data for other accounts etc.
The Digital goods section has 133 items listed. As the name hints, it sells software, guides, exploits etc.
Counterfeit is where a buyer can buy fake money or jewellery. Currently, only fake money has listings and page for counterfeit jewellery isn’t populated.
World Market can also be used to order services such as hacking, carding, fake documents etc.
Does World Market sell guns or illegal porn?
No. A majority of people believe darknet markets to be a hub of the most illegal goods. Which is true to an extent, but, not entirely.
World Market doesn’t allow the trade of weapons, underage porn, terror-promoting services/items, and killing services.
Sure, there are other markets which do facilitate these trades. World Market isn’t that market.
That isn’t a “con” on this World Market review. We appreciate the market’s stance on not facilitating these trades which are socially and morally unacceptable.
What are World Market’s vendor policies?
World Market obviously accepts independent vendors. There’s a $150.00 vendor-fee requirement in order to obtain a vendor account. This fee is non-refundable (and, that’s a desirable feature for the buyers on the market).
Those vendors who have an established reputation on other markets are eligible for a free vendor account. Here’s how to get a free vendor account on World Market.
There are no other requirements except for the fact that the vendor account forfeits the ability to buy products, and that the vendor wouldn’t sell the items restricted on World Market.
Here’s a step by step guide on how to get a vendor account on World Market.
What Cryptocurrencies does World Market accept?
World Market accepts only one Cryptocurrency, that being Bitcoin. Bitcoins need to be deposited to the market wallet and then can be used to either make payments for purchases, or, for the vendor-fee.
The deposit process is pretty straight-forward. However, you can take help from this guide for depositing funds on World Market.
The deposits are absolutely free of charge. However, that’s not the case for withdrawals. Withdrawals are charged at a 2.5%. Again, this guide can help you withdraw funds from the market.
What are the search-filters that World Market offers?
We review search-filters because they define how much time a user spends searching for products on the marketplace.
So, there’s the keyword bar where a user enters the product he/she wants. Then, the product-type (digital/physical) can be selected. This ensures that you don’t get cocaine when you’re actually searching for a “guide/e-book” on “drug”.
The most helpful filter is the “price” filter. It lets you set your minimum and maximum budget. This ensures you don’t have to scroll through hundreds of products trying to find something that fits your pockets.
The category filter is pretty basic, helps narrow a search to a specific category. The “Origin” filter ensures you only gets products from countries you’re comfortable with.
Similarly, the “ships to” filter makes sure every product you find actually ships to your country. So, you won’t waste time looking at products which do not ship to your country.
A buyer can also choose his/her escrow mode. Do they need full escrow, or are okay with Finalize-Early trades?
So, all in all, there aren’t many filters that World Market is missing.
Which security features does World Market offer?
This can be explained simplest by saying that World Market offers everything except TOTPs, multisig and a Login Phrase.
So, the accounts can be secured via 2-factor authentication. This is done by letting the users encrypt their accounts using PGP. Decryption of an encrypted message is required for each login. We did a full guide on enabling 2-FA on World Market.
Secondly, users are required to set a 6-digit withdrawal code on registration. This is used for withdrawals, obviously. Sure, it can be changed at will and here’s how to do that.
Obviously, Escrow is offered on all trades (except on the autoshops or with F.E vendors.)
Does World Market offer a mnemonic code?
Yes. Right after registration, World Market displays a mnemonic code. This code can has multiple uses.
First, it’s used to recover World Market accounts. There’s no other mode of account recovery if this mnemonic code isn’t available.
Secondly, the mnemonic code is also required for resetting the withdrawal PIN. Again, without the mnemonic the withdrawal PIN can’t be changed.
Does World Market have an autoshop?
Yes, it does. But, the autoshop wasn’t available for the past few days and hence the market may still not be sure of the autoshop’s future. However, for now, there’s an autoshop available.
The autoshop sells:
- Bank accounts.
The search-filters on the autoshop are extremely detailed, narrow and help find exactly what a buyer is looking for.
There’s a 1-hour check time offered on the cards. In-built checker included. Refunds are provided on dead cards.
Does World Market have an in-built mixer?
Not exactly. Although, you may notice a link to MiXo on the deposit/withdrawal page. This isn’t an in-built mixer. Rather, it’s a mixer World Market has partnered up with.
The mixer is a BTC to XMR mixer. Meaning, you can send your withdrawn funds from World Market to this mixer. It’ll then send you clean funds, which will be XMR instead of BTC! Totally anonymous.
If you’ve gone through this World Market review, you already have an idea of the marketplace, don’t you?
As far as our opinion goes, we’d say it’s an average yet trustworthy marketplace (for now). Meaning, its product-stock, search-filters, security features and vendor-policy are impressive. The autoshop clearly boosts it to the “elite” league of darknet markets.
However, it’s limited to just 1 Cryptocurrency, and isn’t wallet-less. Hence, those aspects require improvements.
All in all, the market is definitely worth a try as long as you don’t use it for illegal purposes. That’ll be all for this World Market review folks. However, you may check the FAQ out if you’ve still got doubts.
