Seller FAQs

Do you store my gift card information securely?

Yes — we store your information securely until a buyer purchases your card.  The card information you give is only used to validate the balance manually — we never redeem or let a buyer redeem without paying.

How can I get paid out for my sale?

As a market based on cryptocurrencies, our main way of payout is via crypto.  Specifically, we prefer USDC over Polygon or USDC over Ethereum.

If you are unable to receive USDC over Polygon or Ethereum, our alternate payout mechanism is Amazon.com gift cards.  We can give you a 20% premium for Amazon gift card payouts, so a 1.00 USDC payout over Polygon translates to $1.20 in Amazon gift cards.

If you are selling in bulk or a large amount (payout > $100) and absolutely cannot do the above, we can, for a fee, payout in alternate cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or USDT.

How do you ensure that I will be paid for my sale?

The key to seller security is the SafeEscrow system. As a first step, the buyer must deposit funds, so you know you’re always dealing with a buyer with proven funds.  Only after the Buyer deposits funds, is any gift card information revealed to the buyer. 

After the buyer deposits funds, WaterMelonMarkets manually verifies the amount on your card, and reveals the information to the buyer.  If the gift card amount on your card is verified by WaterMelonMarkets, we will provide free seller protection, which means that we will guarantee you get paid.
