How to Make An Account on Vice City Market
Although it’s easy to make an account on Vice City market, what you might find difficult is solving this captcha. Don’t worry I’ve solved this captcha dozens of times, I’ll help you. Just follow these steps!
Step 1: This captcha says you have to fill the circles which match the shapes that are colored in. You don’t understand a thing right? Well, I have an explanation in the next step.
Step 2: If you look at the captcha, you’ll see a bishop, horse, and that triangle in a line. Below that, there are 3 more items. And below those 3 items, there are 3 more. In order to solve this, you have to click on the circle referring to the position of those items. As you can see here, Queen is colored purple and it’s in 3rd position. So I filled the circle by clicking on it. Same goes for the 2nd and 3rd line.
Step 3: This is where things get easier. All you have to do is click on that ‘register’ link.
Step 4: Fill the form with basic details.
Step 5: Put your username and captcha correctly.
Step 6: Login with the credentials you made earlier and fill that captcha again.
Step 7: Once you see something like this, it means you’re logged in. Just close this window clicking on that red ‘x’ and you’ll be on the homepage in no time.
What Should You Do Before Making An Order on Vice City Market?
Set Your PGP Key
On the top, you’ll see a profile. Click on it and switch to the ‘PGP key’ tab.
There you’ll see a box where you can fill in your PGP key. Once you’re done pasting your PGP key in there, click on ‘save.’
Go to the ‘Account’ section from top. There you’ll see ‘Account Settings.’ If you look at the bottom, you’ll see the ‘enable 2-FA’ button. Use that to turn 2FA on.
Multisignature, often referred to as multisig, is a cryptographic technology that allows multiple parties to jointly control a digital asset or authorize a transaction.
In traditional systems, a single signature is sufficient to validate and execute transactions. However, multisignature adds an additional layer of security by requiring multiple signatures to approve a transaction.
If you want to leverage Vice City market’s multisig feature, you can scroll more on the same ‘account settings’ page and you’ll see something like this:
To use this feature, make sure your wallet is multisig. There you can setup a multisig wallet and get your multi sig as well as public key which you can paste here. If you already know what this is about, it will be easier for you. Otherwise, you can learn more about it here: What is MultiSig and how it works?
Change Currency to Your Preference
In the ‘accounts settings,’ you’ll see the ‘Display Currency’ option. I’d suggest changing currency to your preference. This way it will be easier for you to observe the pricing of each item without second guessing. More importantly, you’ll have an idea about how much you want to deposit.
Before you make any purchases on the Vice City Market, you have to deposit some BTC to your market wallet which is located at the top of the market’s homepage. As you can see, I’ve pointed it out for you:
Once you click on ‘0 BTC,’ you’ll come across this page:
Here you’ll see the BTC address that you can use for making a deposit. As of now, they don’t have a Monero wallet. But, it looks like it might come in the near future.
Note: One thing that’s certain on darknet is uncertainty. Not only your account might get hacked but also the whole marketplace might get seized. Only add funds to your wallet when you really want to buy something.
How to Make An Order On Vice City Market
Step 1: First, select the product you want to buy.
Step 2: On the product page, you have to choose your delivery method and quantity. When you’re done, click on the ‘Buy’ button.
Step 3: Fill in your shipping details, PIN, and save the PGP key if you want. Check if everything is alright and then click on ‘place order.’
That’s it, you’ve successfully made an order on the Vice City Market. But remember this, you have three hours for your payment transaction to be confirmed on the blockchain. If the transaction fails to achieve a confirmation within this time, the order is cancelled and the BTC is refunded to your account (potentially minus a transaction fee).
I recommend you should always take a look at average Bitcoin network fees at the time to get a gauge of what kind of fee you should assign before sending the transaction. By setting a comfortably high enough fee you can avoid this problem altogether.
Confirmation of Transaction
After your transaction has been confirmed by the network three times, the order information is then passed on to the vendor. The vendor then starts preparing your order for delivery.
After the order has been delivered, the vendor will mark it as so. If you are doing a FE (finalize early) order, you can mark the order as Finalized in the “Orders” menu to release the funds to the vendor. Otherwise, wait for your order to arrive before finalizing it so that you can be sure you get it for sure.
If your order doesn’t arrive or it isn’t up to your expectations, you can file a dispute and submit a case as to why you are due a refund (or partial refund). The moderator will then give the vendor a chance to respond and make a decision in favor of one party or the other.
Disputes can arise in any commercial transaction but it’s better to minimize your chances of having to file a dispute in the first place by only placing orders with the most competent of vendors (as demonstrated by their ratings and feedback).
Some vendors work seamlessly. You order, they ship, and that’s all it takes. But sometimes you have to go through disputes. Generally, it happens when your order doesn’t arrive or if it’s not up to your expectations.
If something like this happens, first talk to the vendor before opening a ticket. If the vendor doesn’t reply within 2 days, open a ticket from the ‘support’ tab.
Is Vice City Market Worth it?
Apart from empty knowledge base area, annoying captcha, and 10 minute idle timeout, I don’t see anything that makes this platform unworthy.
Although this marketplace really needs further development, its security has never been overlooked. Therefore, it’s absolutely worth it to make a purchase on Vice City Market.
Just make sure you know the basics of shopping on darknet marketplaces and you’ll be fine.
