It has a “Sign up now” link which can be used to get to the registration page. This is the registration form:
The marketplace is pretty anonymous and doesn’t ask for any verifications. It’s one of the shortest registration forms we’ve ever seen.
What are the Products on White House Market?

The primary available products are:

How to Find Products on WHM Market?
As a Darknet Market, any platform has to ensure that finding products is easy for its customers. Well a user on White House Market can employ various methods to land on a desired product.
Once a user logs in, they get to find products using three different ways. The first being the left-sidebar. It has a neatly categorized list of all the primary products, and then sub-categories for each of those products.
Or, a user can use the provided search-panel to find products. If you know exactly what you’re looking for, you can simply key-in the keyword, choose a category and optionally also choose the country you wish to get it shipped to and from.
Or you can take a more casual route parallel to “window-shopping” in the real-world. A user may scroll down on the screen and choose a product from the displayed list.
Bottomline, it’s no harder than finding your products on clearnet e-commerce websites.
How to Place an Order on White House Market?
This section on this White House Market review deals with the steps required to order products on White House Market. These aren’t the smoothest in my experience, but they get the job done.
In a nutshell, a user first finds the product he/she needs > checks its price > goes to the wallet and deposits funds > comes back to the product page > orders the product.
Every product page displays the price of the product at the very bottom. A buyer would be required to note this amount down, and click on the “go to wallet” option.
Then deposit the funds in their wallet.
These funds then need to be applied to wallet once they’ve received sufficient confirmations, and then the user can use them to order products.
Note that the marketplace only accepts Monero payments for now. So do not send Bitcoins or any other Cryptocurrency to the provided address.
Additionally, all other wallet functions (deposit/withdrawal) are frozen up until one transaction completely goes through.
These addresses are discarded after each use hence sending multiple payments to the same address will result in a loss.
What are the Security Features on the Marketplace?
Once a user Signs up on the marketplace ,they’re forced to enable PGP and 2-FA for their accounts.
Hence there are no additional “steps” required to secure a user account (apart from the initial PGP setup ofcourse).
The marketplace however does provide users with a PGP-signed and verifiable mirror-list on the homepage which lets them verify their URLs and ensure they aren’t on a phishing website.
Escrow too is available which ensures fair trades for both the involved parties. There is an extensive Security Guide which explains PGP and other security precautions to users as well.
It doesn’t keep logs or sensitive information on its servers either. Moreover, all user funds are stored in a cold-wallet hence they can’t be hacked.
How to Get a Seller Account and What are the Rules?
In order to get a Seller account on White House Market, all a user has to do is login to their account and click on “Become a Seller”.
Then they simply need to click on “Become a Seller” link again on the next page to confirm their choice. The change/upgrade from a buyer to a seller account is instant.
The seller profile instantly lets a user add listings and products to the marketplace. The primary listing rules a seller needs to follow are all listed here:
As is evident, no extra fee needs to be paid for that vendor account. It’s completely free as long as a vendor pays that 5% commission on each sale.
Is White House Market Available on I2P?
It most certainly is. Infact it’s one of the only marketplaces which is. The currently available I2P mirrors are:
Make sure you verify these mirrors on your own from the marketplace’s homepage.
How to Contact the Support Team?
The Marketplace does offer a support-team to resolve disputes and answer all other questions.
A user simply needs to select “Support” from the very top-bar and send their message in!
Obviously it’s a requirement to PGP-encrypt the message. The support is offered not only in English, but also in Spanish and French so that’s an added bonus.
