How safe is this site to use?
This site is one of the safest torrent sites to use. Not only do we not give away any personal information, but we also minimize the risk of getting your account disabled by forcing our users to follow our unique system of deciding who goes first in an auction
What is the Unique System of determining who goes first?
To answer the question shortly it is basically the lowest rank of user goes first.
There are 2 ranks of users (from top to bottom):
* Preferred Sellers [Automatically if you are a store owner]
* Verified Sellers (need to have successfully started AND completed 5 AUCTIONS
* Normal Sellers
If the seller and the bidder are of the same rank, then the person who has done the fewest auctions goes first
If the two users are of the same rank AND done the same number of auctions, then the person who joined closer to todays date goes first
If two users have the same rank, done the same number of auctions and joined on the same date, then it is the responsibility of the two users to decide who goes first.
Scammers will have their IPs and email addresses posted on the "BLACKLIST
" page getting them banned at trackers and hindering their ability to join new ones
What happens if I get scammed?
If you by very small chance get scammed, then please use the "Contact Us
" feature and fill out a report. Please be sure to supply evidence in the form of a screenshot. All submissions without proper evidence will be ignored. When your report is reviewed, the offender will have his Email Address and IP posted publicly. This will get him banned at any trackers he is currently on and will hinder his attempt at joining any new trackers
Are there any fees?
There are two
types of fees. Fees that allow you to grab attention
(highlighting, bolding, uploading videos, making an auction featured) this type of fee is OPTIONAL
. The second type of fee is the end of auction fee
, which the seller
pays. This fee is MANDATORY
, it is paid after an auction is successfully completed (ie an invite is bought by someone else). Failure to pay this fee will put the seller on the blacklist
. The End of Auction fee serves 2 purposes: it helps cover the hosting costs
and it helps us protect you against scammers. Read more about FEES
What sort of Payment is accepted?
Torrent Auction accepts what the seller accepts. Contact them for more details
What is the Wanted Ad Feature?
This allows you to "request" a tracker. You will post a tracker and a seller will offer it
Are my details (IP, email, etc) safe?
Yes. Unless you are a scammer, all your personal details are safe with us. You must not forget that we want to make a profit too and we won't be able to do that, if we give personal details away
Where does the money go?
We donate the money received from this site to torrent trackers
Any other security tips?
It is possible for trackers to see from what page you are coming from. It is also possible for some trackers to see your browsing history. For this we recommend you use a Different browser, when using this site.
Are Torrent Accounts allowed to be sold?
Yes, but if your account gets disabled; the seller will not get banned as there are other factors involved that are beyond our control (Tracker IP checks)
What are the Tracker Levels that are in the categories?
This is a system that we implemented to keep the auctions tidy. Tracker levels reflect the rarity of the tracker. They do not reflect content. When selling an invite/account; you MUST place your auction in the right category. Category list is available here
: Tracker List
. If your tracker is not mentioned, you are advised to place your auction in the category you think is right, based on the trackers rarity
Where will my invites be sent to?
By default, your registration email. It is up to the user to notify the seller; if a different email is to be used
Isn't it dangerous to sell invites to random strangers?
Well there are two reasons why an account gets disabled: getting caught by an admin selling account/invite -- that risk is minimized here AND the inability of a person to keep a good ratio. Since the "stranger" is already investing money into an account it is very unlikely the person will keep a bad ratio (as he can donate/buy seedbox)
Is this site limited only to Torrent Invites?
No, you can sell invites to other types of sites as well (example: google voice); just remember when selling the invite it must be put in the Tracker Level 1 section
What are Stores?
Stores are minisites which allow you to sell your invites
What are the benefits of Stores?
Stores automatically grant you Preferred User status. A Preferred User status gives you a 50% discount on all fees. A Preferred User Status is also a mark of a trusted user. Stores also allow you to list a number of items for FREE :
- Basic Store - 10 items
- Prestige Store - 25 items
- Elite Store- 75 items
Note: A Powerseller Status means the End of Auction Fee is removed
Having a Prestige store and an Elite Store also puts your store on the "Featured Store" section in the store page
Are Stores Right for Me?
We recommend stores for people who are serious about making money from selling torrent invites. With the ability to gain Powerseller status a store would be a serious money saver for those interested in selling 10+ invites
How do I start a store?
Go to the My Store part of the Members Area and click on Subscription Setup
Also, Prestige and Elite Store Owners are now allowed to list the auctions they listed on their store page on Torrent Auction's Home Page. All You need to do is let me know which one's you want listed on the homepage
