Torzon Market has made a real statement since bursting onto the darknet scene in September 2022, wasting no time in attracting a number of big name vendors from around the world and already building up a solid customer base. The market offers physical products such as drugs (these being the most popular offerings), as well as digital products such as software and guides.

After entering your username, password and the captcha at the login screen, you'll be asked to provide your 6 digit PIN as a method of 2FA. Your personal phrase will also be shown. If you have PGP 2FA activated, you'll be asked for this also. It's clear the Torzon Market team aren't messing about when it comes to account security.
Upon login, the landing page bears some resemblence to a number of other markets from the past and present, such as Tor2Door and Cartel Marketplace. Spend a little time with it however, and you'll see there's plenty of things which sets Torzon apart from those.
New vendors can join the market by paying a $200 bond, although waivers are offered to established vendors. All purchases are subject to a 14 day escrow time, with no Finalize Early (FE) option offered. Whilst this is a positive from a buyer perspective, it may deter some large established vendors from coming on board, many of whom insist on FE. Time will tell whether the market decides to add this.
Results are displayed in a grid format which shows a brief product description, vendor name, price, (in the local currency you've specified in your profile settings) shipping to/from locations, a photo, and star rating of vendor / product. Pretty much everything you'd need to know. Very well designed and user friendly in this regard.
You can view more detailed information about a specific vendor by clicking on their name at the top left of the listing. Here you can view feedback from across their entire product range. For some vendors, feedback is also shown from markets they currently or have previously vended on, including large markets such as ASAP, Dark0de Reborn, Archetyp and White House Market, to name just a few. Vendors can also be added to favorites to you easily find them again from your favorites menu without the need for searching.
To see details of the feedback left against a vendor's reviews, simply select 'Reviews' from the menu on the left. The only downside here is that it doesn't tell you which specific product the review relates to, so the only way to tell is in the individual product page.
Before making a cryptocurrency deposit, be sure you're not on a phishing site (check your onion link against those listed on Torhoo), then send funds to the wallet address provided in the wallet section of your account.
Bitcoin deposits will register after 1 confirmation, with Monero deposits requiring 10 confirmations. Once this required number is reached, you can proceed with a purchase. Select the item you want from the relevant product page, choose a shipping option, then click Order. It is possible to have more than one item in your cart at a time, even if they are from multiple vendors.
Once you've added everything you wish to purchase to the cart, you will be prompted to provide your address, alongside any other notes, as well as choosing which crypto you wish to pay in. For security reasons, it is strongly recommend that you always encrypt messages yourself rather than relying on the auto-encrypt function. Don't put your personal details in the hands of a darknet market, however good their security practices may seem on the surface. If you're not yet familar with PGP encryption, we have a detailed guide on how to use PGP.
Once confirmed and submitted, any outstanding orders will show in the 'My Order' section of the header. When the vendor accepts, ships or cancels the order, it will be displayed here and you will receive a notication accordingly. Once your order has arrived, you can then mark it as received and leave feedback for the buyer. In the event of an issue, you can opt to extend the auto-finalize timer, or you can raise a dispute which will then be reviewed by market staff. We always recommend messaging a vendor first before disputing any order however. The vast majority of vendors will try their best to resolve the situation with you in the first instance.
