While I most naturally leave the pleasures of consumption to the reader, his responsibilities are not over. Your assessment of the goods is critical to the marketplace. Detailed feedback, good or bad, is what makes all of this work. Style points don't matter but originality means new knowledge so try to say what hasn't been already. Never be nasty but if its negative and pertinent we all need to hear most of all the seller, don't be afraid of her retribution, if this is the case your feedback becomes even more critical and a whistle blower halo begins to form upon your head.
If quality is so bad as to be mis-representational you should first let the seller know privately and give him an opportunity to explain and correct the problem. If this proves difficult your next step is an escrow dispute.
The single most elegant thing here: the upper right corner shows a deposit address. If you need help see the bitcoin section. Depending upon your means of sending and the state of the bitcoin network you can expect a reasonably quick transaction, less than 1 hour is typical, if it takes more than 3 you should check up on things.
The worst thing about marketplace wallets is the fact they all too often result in abandoned funds. With the volatility of bitcoins it's necessary to place a little extra as prices are always changing. These padding amounts are useless until you buy again or return to empty the wallet. BMR throws in a few extra tricks here with transaction fees.
I recommend you overfund by a satoshi (penny) or 3 and return on your next purchase or the next bitcoin rally, remember this is kind of bank account and you own it.
The parenthetic scores next to vendors names' represent the number of positive reviews in BMR's trinary rating system. Click on a vendor's page and you'll also see the number of neutrals and negatives (ie. 120/2/3).
There is a extraordinary number of (0) rated vendors here many of these are recent SR transplants, some of which appear to abandoneing BMR. Unless you know the vendor from elsewhere it's best to limit your possibilities to scores >5 and with recent sales. Gathering this subset may require traversing several pages, use your browser to open multiple tabs, shuffling them like a hand of cards to create a preliminary ordering.
What remains is a process of elimination, surprisingly many of the higher scored vendors can be discarded out of hand by virtue of their self descriptions:
" VERY BUSY GETTING ALL DONE, COULD NOT LOGIN AND BEEN OVER LOADED AFTER SHUTDOWN PERIOD. PLEASE STAY CALM ALL HAS BEEN AND IS POSTED IN ORDER. SORRY NO TIME FOR PMs. BUSY GETTING ALL DONE ASAP."
"With the currently high volatility of bit-coin right now we are requiring EARLY FINALIZATION by everyone even if we have done business in the past."
These gems come from actual, higher-volume vendors. anyone telling you about their problems or putting any obstacles in their front door should be avoided, this will eliminate more candidates.
What remains warrants a closer search, carefully read the feedback for each vendor, and don't forget the importance of freshness, inventory quality changes over time as well as attentiveness to business. Even an excellent vendor will attract complaints but don't give them much heed if they occur 5% (1 of 20) or less of the time, are distributed evenly, and don't touch a critical nerve like stealth.
Having vetted the sellers you can now select the product just as you would in any reputed situation, comparing quality, price and delivery speed. Remaining questions you have should be asked on the listing page; look at the bottom for the "Questions to Vendor".
