Introduction:

The WSO section is a marketplace for high quality Internet Marketing products.
Sellers have purchased these threads as advertisements for their products and services.

While the WSO forum offers great deals and Internet Marketing products, buyers should exercise common sense when considering purchasing a product or service.

At any time, buyers and sellers may report any post or offer within the WSO section to Warrior Forum moderators to investigate. This can be done with the red triangle on the lower left side of each post or via the Warrior Forum support desk, located at https://support.freelancer.com.

When browsing through offers, buyers should be aware that Warrior Payments is the only platform that is endorsed and supported by the Warrior Forum, we also support JVzoo, eJunkie, Paypal and many others - We DO NOT SUPPORT OR ACCEPT WarriorPlus as a payment system.
For details about Warrior Payments, please visit https://payments.warriorforum.com/.

All WSO rules and the approval of each WSO is subject to moderator's discretion.
If a moderator deems that a particular offer is not appropriate for the WSO Marketplace, the offer will be rejected and move to the Underground Section.


This means that we reserve the right to accept or reject any WSO .

All listing and bump fees are final.
If a seller acts outside of these WSO rules, no refunds for any payments made to Warrior Forum will be offered.

The onus is on the seller to abide by these rules and to ensure their offer aligns with all rules.

WSO Seller Rules



Rule #1: WSO Compliance with Law and Rules

All WSOs must comply with forum rules, the laws of Australia and the laws of your geographic location.

Sellers must comply with all legal requirements for advertising, both under the laws of Australia and the country in which you live or predominantly reside.

Legal compliance is strictly your responsibility as the seller of the product.





Rule #2: WSO Approval Policy

The following are examples of products that are not permitted to be sold as a WSO:
- Mass Account Creators

- SEO Spam Tools
- Blog Commenting Tools
- Wiki Poster Tools
- Spamming Tools
- Automation Bots

If your WSO is any of the above, your offer will not be approved and your payment fee will not be refunded period.

Rule #3: Moderation and Approval Time

Warrior Forum moderators must approve any offer prior to it being sold on the Warrior Forum.

If your thread is approved, you will receive a private message from a moderator advising your thread is ready to be published with further instructions to post your offer.

If your thread is not approved, you will receive a private message from a moderator advising that your thread has been rejected. If your thread is rejected, you are encouraged to thoroughly read through the WSO Rules posted here and align your offer with these rules. Once this is done, you may submit your revised listing.

All submissions will generally be reviewed within 96 hours. If your submission has not been approved within 96 hours, you may contact the Warrior Forum Help Desk along with your username and thread title.

Rule #4: Seller Support
Sellers must give customers a reliable, common way for buyers to make contact that does not depend on the forum, such as a support email address, support desk etc. This should be placed within the first or second post of your offer. Sellers should set clear expectations in terms of what support is offered for the WSO.


Rule #5: No Scarcity

The Warrior Forum will not accept products where the sales copy announces

Limited Numbers
Only for a few days
Only for a selected number of Warriors

Those type of statements are not allowed in the marketplace. If you offer a product to the Warrior Forum you are making open for the time of the listing and to any warrior willing to buy it.

If you indeed have limited copies, you can delete your post once this number of copies have been sold.

Rule #6: Titles

The Title of a WSO should describe what a WSO is. It should seek to describe what people are buying. Titles should not describe the effects of buying a product which include but are not limited to income claims, traffic guarantees, seo results etc. Apart from this, the following guidelines are put in place.

Non alphanumeric characters, emojis, HTML and ASCII art are not permitted in WSO titles.
Titles can't use FULL CAPS across the title
Titles can't use Exclamation marks (!)
Titles can't include promises or income claims example: I made $1000 using this , now you can make double
Titles need to describe the product itself vs focus on promises of the product result

Rule #6: Paid Testimonials

Under no circumstances are sellers permitted to use testimonials from anyone who has, or will, receive payment, commission, incentive or advantage for their review. All testimonials must be unsolicited.


Rule #7: Bonus in Exchange for Review

Sellers must not offer payment, commission, incentive or advantage in exchange for reviews. For instance, sellers cannot offer a bonus report that is only given to people who leave a review.

Buyers: WSO Rules

Rule #1: Asking for Review Copies / Offering Reviews

We do not allowed asking for reviews copies or offering review copies. This is a marketplace and you need to have a product that has been already tested by your market audience.
So no "free reviews" "or limited reviews are allowed"

Rule #2: Reporting Fraudulent or Misleading Offers

If the seller fails to deliver the product or service as advertised, or does not honor a posted refund policy, please report the problem using the Report tool or contact the Helpdesk.

In your report, include enough details to allow them to look into the claim properly, including the thread Url and the seller's username. To report a problem, use the red triangle to the lower left of the post you're reporting. Fill in the necessary information and submit the form. Please keep in mind that investigating a claim requires time and multiple reports should not be submitted.

The forum is not part of the transaction between a buyer and seller. We have no ability to force a refund or any other action by a third party. We are limited to reducing or removing access by parties we believe may be acting improperly or who violate the forum or WSO rules as described here.

Rule #3: Resolving Issues

Buyers should attempt to resolve any issues with sellers privately so the seller has the opportunity to fix any issues. Should the issue remain unresolved, buyers may report the problem or offer for moderators to investigate.

Buyers should be aware that if you have purchased an offer, you may also review the product or service in the seller's thread.

Rule #4: Reviewing a WSO

You may post 1 honest review for any WSO that you have purchased. Reviews should be factual and not mislead in any way. If the product you purchased was sold via Warrior Payments, you can honestly review the product from within both Warrior Payments and also on the seller's thread.

Review guidelines:

- If you are an affiliate or received a review copy of a product, you must state this when posting a review of the product.

- Do not debate the sales process. If you believe something is deceptive, then report this to the moderators.

- You may list the OTOs associated with a product as a part of your review, once
you've purchased the initial offer. Do not argue about them, or make statements beyond the list of what is offered. The seller decides his or her own sales process. You decide if you wish to buy what's offered.

- Multiple reviews within a sales thread are not tolerated.

- Reviews must be of the product, not the seller nor the seller's previous products.

- Personal attacks, name-calling, and unproven accusations are not tolerated. YOU WILL BE BANNED.

While buyers are encouraged to review products and services, buyers must follow these guidelines.

Rule #5: Refunds

While many WSO's are digital products and services, buyers are not automatically entitled to a refund if they are unhappy with the product or service.

If the seller offers a refund period as part of their offer, this will appear on the sales page or in the FAQ of their offer. If there are no mentions of a Refund Policy, buyers should assume all sales are final and no refunds are offered.

If you wish to request a refund from the seller, you should contact the seller privately - either through a private message or via the seller's external support channel. Requests for refunds should only be made on the seller's thread if you do not receive a response from the seller within 2 business days. Keep in mind, sellers may be in a different time zone to you.

If a seller fails to honor a posted refund policy, please report the offer to the moderators.

Products sold on the WSO marketplace are not sold by the Warrior forum but are rather just hosted by the Warrior forum on behalf of the product creators. We allow sellers to set their own policies and processes for refunds. We advise buyers to check the refund policies of products before buying whether by reading the sales copy or by contacting and clarifying with the seller beforehand. Requests for refunds should only be made on the seller's thread if you do not receive a response from the seller within 2 business days. Keep in mind, sellers may be in a different time zone to you.

Imagine this analogy, let's say you bought some dodgy fruit in a farmer's market at a park. In this case, you would demand refunds from the farmer who sold you the fruit, not the park administrators. As with this case, you would get the refunds from the seller of the product, not with Warrior forum.

Rule #6: Etiquette

Buyers are entitled to ask questions and post 1 honest review within the WSO thread for products they have purchased. However, Warrior Forum members are not to engage in running feuds. This applies to both buyers and sellers.

Buyers may not harass, blackmail, personally attack, spam or bully sellers.

Rule #7: No File Sharing

If you have purchased a product or received a review copy, you are not permitted to share, reproduce or sell the product, or part thereof, without the seller's explicit consent.

        Yeah, that's what I've been 'forced' to conclude after there has been no "bells and whistles" about it, no significant nor apparent changes to the WSO section, and now THIS new WSO Rules post dated July 30th 2018...

        I must admit, all those pieces together were already talking, but since I've been looking forward for the new changes -which sounded interesting and promising- I wanted to kind of CONFIRM what was already kind of obvious...

        Thanks for your time.

        TTYL
        Andy
        P.S.: if you feel like sharing the outcome of all this feel free man, I think now here would be the time... Or maybe another announcement? cheers...

    I see that PLR products are not allowed in WSO. Just need some clear information, if I have bought a product with Master Resell Rights.

    Can't I modify that product and sell it under WSO as my own product?

    The problem with this is still does not protect the buyers against all the really crappy WSOs that are being produced. ON many of the other forums, the WSO is considered a joke. How about reviewing them before they are allowed to be posted? Would really clean up the forum!
