Warning: The OpenBazaar Beta uses real Bitcoin and real listings!
If you use the Beta please follow these guidelines:
1. Don’t risk large amounts of Bitcoin.
2. Make sure to back up your OpenBazaar wallet.
3. If you post a test listing that you don’t want others to purchase, make sure to note this in the listing title and description.
If you run into a problem, please report the issue in the OpenBazaar 2.0 beta Megathread on our subreddit, or use the built-in “Feedback” button in the client.
OpenBazaar is currently for desktop only. Email yourself a reminder link to download on desktop & sign up for our newsletter to get our latest updates.
OpenBazaar is the world’s first and only fully decentralized marketplace, which means it connects people directly and securely to each other via a peer-to-peer network rather than through a centralized website like online marketplace giants Alibaba, Amazon, or eBay.
OpenBazaar users can expect the most secure, most private, and most liberating experience of any ecommerce marketplace because it gives users complete control of their data and their business. There’s no big company behind the scenes that can act as a gatekeeper, collect data, or restrict transactions for anyone. And as a natural result of this, users don’t pay any fees to use OpenBazaar, ever, and there are no terms and conditions to sign.
Users can also enjoy participating in the digital currency economy however they’d like. Pay with your favorite coins from 50+ cryptocurrencies that are supported on OpenBazaar via ShapeShift integration such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Zcash, Dash, etc. and sellers receive payment in Bitcoin.
