Python Market is a darknet marketplace that emphasizes the security and protection of its users. It guarantees full anonymity and a “100% functional escrow system.” It has automatic PGP encryption for every transaction. The site also supports two-factor authentication and multisig payments.

How to Access the Python Market

The http://25cs4ammearqrw4e.onion/ URL of the Python market is not just any ordinary website address. It is an Onion URL. As such, you need a special web browser to open it. You need the Tor browser bundle

For this purpose or if you will be using non-Windows platforms like Linux or mobile devices, you need a special browser to access the site. We have a post on this so be sure to go over it.

To be able to buy and sell on the Python Darknet Marketplace, you will be using bitcoins to make sure that your transactions are anonymous.

It’s not enough, however, to simply be able to access the site and have the currency to use in the Python dark web marketplace, though. You also need ways to erase your online activity tracks and encrypt the messages or information you share online. That’s why you need a VPN service and PGP.

Account Registration

Upon loading the Python deepweb Market website, the first page that will greet you is a login page. To register, just click on the Register button on the upper right corner of the page.

Python Market place has a rather long account registration form. It will be asking for your username, password (8-50 characters), PIN (4-7 digits), an optional text profile, and a PGP public key. You may skip the text profile and PGP public key fields as they can be added later in your account page. You can still proceed to have your account created without these two. You should be able to complete the registration process in less than 30 seconds.

python-market-account-registration

Just a little note on the password: your password should only be made of letters. We tried using numbers in our first our registration attempt and it returned an error. The site does not indicate that the password should only be composed of letters. There should have been a small note on the form regarding this as users will likely find it difficult to figure out why their nominated passwords are considered “illegal” by the site.

After having your account successfully created, you will be presented with your mnemonic. You have to save and secure this mnemonic as you will be needing it in case you need to reset your access credentials.

By default, you will be given a buyer account. If you want to sell items, you need to apply for a Merchant Account by clicking on the Become a Merchant account link on the site. If you want to become a merchant, you have to add a PGP key in your profile and pay a 0.15 BTC fee.

The Python Market Account Interface and Functions

After doing what you need to do at the mnemonic page, you will be automatically logged into your account. The homepage as you log in shows virtually everything there is to find in the Python deep web Market website. There’s a menu bar on top that provides quick links to the most important pages of the site along with notifications for site announcements, messages, and orders. A handy search bar is provided just below the right side of the menu bar to make it easy to do listing searches wherever you may be on the site. On the other hand, on the left portion of the site, the different categories are presented. The homepage also presents overviews on the rules, depositing, transactions, and orders.

Python Market has a well-organized website. It shouldn’t be difficult finding your way around here. To add your PGP key and some changes to your account, you have to go to the Settings page. Here, you can also change your  password, set up your multisig payment, set your currency, enable two-factor authentication, and add your personal phrase. It is also under the Settings page where you will find your referral link.

Yes, Python Market has a referral program that allows you to earn something by promoting the site. The amount of referral commission or whatever reward given, however, is not presented on the site and we couldn’t verify how much or what it really is even after doing another account registration using our referral link.

Python Market’s messaging system is a simple tool for communicating with other users. It does not support auto-complete, though, so you really need to know the username of the other user you want to communicate with to be able to write it on the field for the recipient’s username. This is a good messaging system that also supports the keeping of received and sent messages. It also allows users to “favorite” certain messages for easier searching later on.

All in all, the Python darknet marketplace offers a great interface even though page loading time is far from the best. You can access all sections of the site even without activating javascript support on the Tor browser. There’s no difference in how the site behaves when javascript is turned on or off.

Categories and Listings

There are 11 major categories on the Python Market. Comparable to what many other Deepdotweb markets offer, the categories are as follows (with their respective number of listings at the time this review was written):

  • Drugs & Chemicals (2328)
  • Guides & Tutorials (1915)
  • Counterfeit Products (55)
  • Digital Products (2479)
  • Jewels & Gold (0)
  • Carded Products (16)
  • Fraud (496)
  • Services (44)
  • Software & Malware (48)
  • Other listings (6)
  • custom listings

python-market-categories-and-listings

  • As usual, Drugs has the most number of listings. It includes the following subcategories: Cannabis & Hashish, Benzos, Ecstasy, Dissociatives, Opioids, Prescriptions, Steroids, Stimulants, Weight Loss, Tobacco, Psychedelics, Paraphernalia, and Other.
  • For Guides & Tutorials, the subcategories are Drugs (mostly e-books or digital media), Fraud, Hacking, Security & Anonymity, Socks & VPN, and Hosting.
  • The Counterfeit Products category presents Fake IDs, Money, Jewelry, Clothing, and Electronics subcategories.
  • The Digital Products section of Python Market offers e-Books, Fraud Software, Legit Software, Game Keys, and Erotic subcategories. Legit here is not really the kind of legit ordinary shoppers have in mind. The listings under this subcategory include spying software, serials and keys, software cracks and freebies, hacker tools, Windows activators, and software for carders.
  • The Python dark web marketplace has a Jewels & Gold category but at the time we did this review, there were no items posted.
  • For the Carded Products, the subcategories are as follows: Clothing, Electronics, and Digital.
  • Under the Fraud category are Accounts & Bank Drops, CVV & Cards, Dumps, and Personal Information. Most of the items listed here are digital media. The only physical ones we found at the time we were doing this review were a magnetic stripe card reader/writer/encoder and a bitcoin ATM/debit card.
  • The Services category features Social Engineering and Carding listings. We couldn’t be sure what the Social Engineering subcategory is for since there was only listing we found here: a CONvenient Amazon Refund Service (emphasis on CON). However, social engineering is generally about tricking people into veering away or defying normal security procedures so we expect listings here that go along this idea.
  • Software & Malware could have been a subcategory of Digital Products but it has its own major category on the Python darknet marketplace. The listings posted here are for botnets, malware, exploits, exploit kits, and security software.

All of the categories on Python Market, by the way, have their respective “Other” subcategories to accommodate listings for items that can’t be included in the usual categories but we noticed that many listings could have been added to the other standard categories. That’s not a big issue, though. After all, it’s more convenient doing a search using the search bar and search filters.

On the other hand, in addition to the thumbnails and prices, the listings on Python Market come with their respective indicators as to whether they are digital or physical items, the number of similar items sold, as well as indicators as to the shipping origins and shipping destinations accommodated. If the item is offered by a trusted seller, there’s a Trusted tag or indicator attached to the listing. There is also an indicator for listings that allow early finalization (FE) or if they can only be purchased as a multisig transaction. Moreover, there are seller or vendor ratings that come with the listings.

Python Market Search and Search Filters

The listing search bar on Python Market is conveniently located on top of the site and appears on all pages so you can conveniently do a search anywhere you may be on the site. You can also do searches on specific categories with it.

python-market-search-filters

The search filter options are automatically displayed every time you do a search. You can’t set parameters first before doing a search but you can quickly and conveniently filter the results right after doing a search. You can limit the results by telling the system to show only those that are considered as the best products of all time, the best products for the week, or the best products of the month. You can also sort results according to the date they were posted (most recent to oldest), number of feedbacks, and price (lowest to highest or highest to lowest). Moreover, you can sort results by choosing to show only physical items, only digital items, only items with FE, only items with multisign escrow payment terms, only times whose merchants have been online in the last 24 hours, or only items shipped domestically (relative to your location). There’s also an option to filter search results according to a price range (in BTC).

With this system, it should be easy finding the item you need on Python Market. We just wish, though, that the “Search with Filters” link is presented on the site as a button to make it more obvious that it is what you should click after you set your filters.

How to Choose a Vendor

Just like most other marketplaces in the deepdotweb, Python Market has vendor or merchant profiles to help buyers in evaluating whether or not it’s a good choice buying from a particular merchant. For Python Market, the merchant profile page presents an overview of or a message from the merchant along with a rating, level (based on the number of sales), number of sales, date when the vendor register for an account, last login date, PGP key, and user feedback. The products offered are not shown on the profile page but in a separate store page.

python-market-vendor-profile

Obviously, it would be preferable to choose a merchant with a higher rating (100% as much as possible), higher level, and more sales. It is also better if a merchant only has positive feedbacks from buyers or very minimal negative feedbacks. Moreover, it is recommended dealing only with merchants who are online most of the time or online just recently. Don’t hesitate to send the merchant a message for inquiries. Avoid those that ask you to finalize the order early, unless they are high level merchants with an indisputable record of delivering customer satisfaction.

It’s also advisable to visit forums to learn about the merchants from whom you consider buying some items. When you register for the official Python Market forum, though, it would be preferable to come up with a different identity and use a disposable email address.

How to Add and Withdraw Funds on Python Market

To make a deposit on Python Market, click on your BTC balance link on the top part of the site to go to your wallet or cashier page. You will then see the address for your bitcoin deposits. Two confirmations are required for your deposit transaction to be completed. Like in most other dark web markets, this bitcoin deposit address changes after every deposit so be sure to always refer to your wallet/cashier page to get your most recent deposit address. Unlike Valhalla Market that keeps its deposit address functional after a deposit is made, Python Market’s deposit address only remain active for 10 days. Don’t be surprised if you lose your bitcoins after you send a deposit to an old and expired deposit address.

python-market-wallet

When it comes to withdrawals, it’s mostly a straightforward process. Just go to your wallet or cashier page, enter your bitcoin wallet address (destination for the withdrawal), the amount you want to withdraw, and PIN. You will be charged a 0.0002 BTC fee for every withdrawal request. Processing is instantaneous and Python Market says that your withdrawn bitcoins should appear in your wallet within minutes.

Ordering Guide

Placing an order on Python Market shouldn’t be a chore. You just have to click on the listing title so you can go to the listing page to enter the quantity you want to buy, choose your shipping option, specify your escrow type (regular or multisign), and proceed to adding your shipping address. Be sure to have your shipping address encrypted (check the “Encrypt Shipping INfo with the PGP of Merchant” option below the field where you enter your shipping address).

python-market-how-to-order

The price indicated on the listing does not include the shipping fee. Also, if you choose multisign escrow, you will have to send 3% of the listing price to the escrow address.

Python Market Support

Python Market has a support page through which you can contact the site’s admin (ticket system) for inquiries or assistance. There’s also a  forum for users of the site but you need to do a separate registration (email address required) to be able to access it. If you want to sign up for this forum, be sure to use a disposable email address or create an account that will not be associated with you or with your other online accounts.
