World Marketplace FAQs

In this article, we’ll be going through the common questions our World Citizens ask when using the marketplace.

  1. Connect the whitelisted wallet by pressing ‘connect wallet’
  2. Sign the signature request pop-up on the upper right of the screen
  3. Press ‘create’

  5. Remember to click the ‘merchant’ radio button under ‘Listing Type’

Secret content link — The secret content link is the link that will pop-up on the buyer’s screen once the buyer has sent his/her payment to the smart contract escrow. This is where the seller can put the links where buyers can download the files they purchased.

How to list an NFT

  3. Press ‘create’
  4. Fill up the form with the necessary details

How to buy items (non-NFT items)

  1. Choose the item you wish to purchase
  2. Press ‘Place Order’
  3. Fill out offer and expiration time (if applicable), complete the captcha and press ‘Place Order’
  4. Wait for the seller to accept the order
  5. Once the offer is accepted, click ‘Pay Order’ to send the buyer’s $WORLD to the smart contract escrow. Note that this action is irreversible once done.
  6. After paying, the ‘Secret Content’ link will pop-up on the screen, allowing the buyer to download the purchased digital item.
  7. Once the buyer is satisfied with the order, the buyer clicks ‘Release Payment’ to send the payment from the escrow to the seller. The buyer may also file a ‘File Dispute’, more information on FAQ #9.
  8. Transaction is complete

Release Payment — the buyer will release funds from the escrow smart contract for the seller to receive. Doing this action finalizes the transaction and will close the window for any disputes.

File Dispute — if the buyer is not satisfied with the order (due to some error, malfunction of link, or lack of quality) the buyer may file a dispute to try to get a refund on his/her $WORLD payment even though the seller does not agree. A delegated moderator will be in charge in assessing the situation. More on this on FAQ #9.

How to accept orders (non-NFT items)

  1. Go to ‘Dashboard’ and press ‘Listing Orders’
  2. Click the right side of the order
  3. Press ‘Accept Order’
  4. Click ‘Sign’ on the wallet pop-up to accept the order
  5. Once the buyer is satisfied with the order, the buyer clicks ‘Release Payment’ to send the payment from the escrow to the seller.
  6. The seller may also choose to refund the buyer by pressing ‘Refund Buyer’
  7. Once the payment has been released, the transaction is complete.
  8. If the buyer is not happy with the content but the seller does NOT agree to give the buyer a refund/replace item, the buyer may click ‘File Dispute’

Refund Buyer — the seller will release the $WORLD from the smart contract escrow back to the buyer’s wallet. More on this on FAQ #___

File Dispute — if the buyer is not satisfied with the order (due to some error, malfunction of link, or lack of quality) the buyer may file a dispute to try to get a refund on his/her $WORLD payment even though the seller does not agree. A delegated moderator will be in charge in assessing the situation. More on this on FAQ #___.

What happens if the buyer does not release any payment? — Don’t worry! The order is stored in the escrow smart contract, not giving the buyer the ability to run away with the payment. If the buyer does not release payment by the order’s expiration time (the time limit stated under ‘disputable within’), a “release payment” button will appear on the seller’s side, allowing the seller to release payment from the escrow. So in short, the worst that could happen is that your payment gets delayed.

How to edit listings

The reason why there isn’t a ‘delete listing’ option is to preserve the history of the buyers and sellers’ interactions — just in case future disputes arise.

How to dispute an order

Disputing an order allows the buyer to contend for a payment refund if the seller disagrees to do so. Doing this action will open the conversation for a moderator (hired by the World team) who will assess the situation and allow both parties to make their respective cases.

This feature is currently being worked on by the World Development team.
