Hi,

I'm currently trying to make some business in the bitcoin market. I sell digitals goods such as WoW gametime cards, and I'll probably sell cd-keys and stuff if things goes well.

Problem : I'm new here, people doesn't trust me yet. And nobody's gonna buy something from a new guy who could be a scammer. And as long as I didn't sold anything, I'll be a new guy for a long time.

So, do you have some tips you would like to share about gaining some reputation on a marketplace like this one ? Thanks.

You could begin be selling your gametime cards at a special discount rate, process a number of successful transactions, and then up your prices when you have built up sufficient trust

Deal with trusted users and send your item first. After you get a few positive ratings from trusted users it will be easier.

The bitcoin-otc channel also has a nice community of people trading stuff for bitcoins. They have a web of trust based on GPG keys to mitigate fraud.

Another thing you can do is post a bond with a trusted member so that you can bootstrap off of their reputation. They then hold onto those funds for a specified period of time, and if you turn out to be a scammer, they can pay out any claims from that fund. Thus, people only need to trust the bond holder, not you.

If you're selling to people individually, you can also state that you'll accept using an escrow. One such escrow is http://btcrow.com/
