We're adding wishlists, favorite sellers (with a feed of recent items) and a few bug fixes.

Features!

Wishlists!!!

  • Items can be added to the wishlist (if the item is not free) via the product page, and deleted via the delete button on the wishlist page

  • Items can also be bulk added from your favorites list
  • Wishlist can be found by viewing https://marketplace.secondlife.com/wishlist while logged in, or via the favorites links in accounts,
  • Wishlists operate like favorites, except that you can find someone else's wishlist at /wishlists/firstname.lastname (there's a link on your own wishlist)
  • There are also share buttons on wishlists.

Follow merchants!

  • Stores can be favorited on the main store page, and stores can be removed via the delete button on the list.

  • Favorite stores can be found by viewing /favorite_stores while logged in, or via the favorites links in accounts. Shows your favorite stores, including up to four of their most recent products.

Fixes:

  • Avatar Brands were not visible when editing, and would then get reset as a result.  That’s frustrating and we’re sorry.
  • The related-item pickers (demo, related items) will no longer show archived products - but will show unlisted.
  • We know you think your product is awesome.  That’s why you’re selling it! However, Merchants can no longer review their own listings.
  • When you change display options on your Manage Listings page, you will go to the first page of your listings.
  • Whatever you chose to search by is what we’ll show you.  We were accidentally overriding that with your sort from the previous session. Oops!
  • Redelivering: when redelivering gifts, we would send a confusing email claiming to have sent the item to the gifter, even though we actually had sent it to the giftee.
  • Listing limits: we were counting archived listings against your limit of 20000, but not anymore.  
  • We had recently replaced “Prim count” filtering with “Land Impact” filtering and then stopped finding all the expected results.  We’ve located them and will return them to you once again.
  • Category names were messed up on some products. A re-index has "unmessed" this.

As we continue our transition to the new SL Marketplace, we will be closing the L$ exchange on XStreetSL and moving all L$ sales and trading to the LindeX, the main L$ exchange.

The L$ exchange at XStreetSL will close on Wednesday, December 15th. All other account management and transaction history services will remain  available on the XStreetSL site through at least the first quarter of 2011.

When trading is halted on the XStreetSL exchange, any unfilled orders will be canceled, and all balances being reserved (both L$ and US$) will be  returned to Second Life accounts within 24 hours. You can view both your L$ and US$ account balances by logging in to the LindeX.

Happy Monday!

We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 2nd at 14:00 SLT in our usual meeting place, and also to highlight for the community at large some of the things that our Web team has been working on for the last month, and wow, there sure is a lot to choose from!

First, we need to acknowledge that a large portion of our time has been spent making on-going back-end changes that our Residents may never notice directly, but which will provide a much more secure and pleasant experience for all going forward. For example, we’ve already completed a full-scale migration of multiple web services away from our dedicated hardware colo and into the cloud. Others have been moved from third-party vendors to an in-house implementation. Still, others have been decoupled from their previous dependencies into stand-alone services. This is all part of our long term plan to move all of our services, from the web properties to the Second Life grid itself, providing us greater reliability, flexibility, and security across the board. We’ll let you try to guess which services have already been migrated - we’re betting you’ll never know the difference!

Second, we’re extremely pleased to say that in the last month we’ve made significant progress in laying the foundations for the long-awaited Name Changes feature.  All of our teams have been working hard on preparing the grid and all of our systems to accommodate account name changes, both first and last. We’re not quite ready to release all the details yet, but suffice to say that if you’ve ever wanted to change up your account name for whatever reason (and we know you have!) STAY TUNED.

Finally, our continuing dedication to improving the Marketplace experience continues. Last month we were very excited to release the new Store Managers functionality. And this month, we’ve been refining that experience, as well as adding more new features for Merchants such as in-world messaging when an item is sold. But we haven’t forgotten the most important part of the Marketplace, the customers! For them, we’ve added a “Gifts Received” page with details about what the items are, who sold it, who bought it, any gift message, with much-requested options for self-service redelivery! 

All of this on top of our usual laundry list of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, security updates, and general troubleshooting. Whew! 

It’s been a heck of a September, and this post is only scratching the surface of what we’ve done and what we’re planning for October through the end of the year, so come on by the Web User Group meeting this Wednesday at 14:00 SLT to share your thoughts and to hear ours!

Happy Tuesday, and Happy New Year!

We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 8th at 14:00 SLT in our usual meeting place, and also to highlight one of our favorite new features we shipped to the marketplace just yesterday. Specifically: Search filters for limited quantity items and demos!

Marketplace Search Filter.png

Both of these features have been requested for a very long time by our community and we’re just tickled pink for them to be the first marketplace updates we deliver in the new year. We believe these features should make the marketplace more responsive and efficient across the board, and make searching more enjoyable for all. We've also added individual gifts received pages (similar to order invoices), so that the purchase notification at the top of each product listing can link to these for easier redelivery, where available. Cheers, and we’ll see you at Web User Group on Wednesday to talk about the rest of our 2020 slate!

As we promised in our town hall meeting about Tilia and its relationship to Second Life last week, we have been working on a way for Residents to voluntarily submit additional information that may be required to process credit prior to the August 1 Tilia launch date. That option is now available on your Second Life account billing information page!

billing info.png

For many of you, we may already have all information required to process credit from your USD balance, and you will be able to see that you are good to go from the green check mark.

good to go.png

For some of you, we may need to collect some additional information before you can process credit from your USD wallet after August 1.  You’ll be able to see that from the red X in the same location.

additional info.png

And from there, you can click on ‘additional information’ link to proceed to the information request form if you would like. You are under no obligation to do so at this time. 

As registered money services businesses, Linden Lab and Tilia are required to comply with applicable U.S. laws and regulations. As part of our ongoing risk management process, we must obtain, verify, and record information about our customers for whom we offer financial-related services. We take your privacy and security seriously, so your personal information will continue to remain protected and will only be used for purposes that are outlined in Linden Lab’s and Tilia’s Privacy Policies.

You may learn more about Tilia and its relationship with Second Life and Linden Lab from our FAQ.

[update August 3, 2015] All Direct Delivery listings have now been migrated to Viewer-Managed Marketplace(VMM), and the VMM-enabled viewer is now the default Release download.


Thank you everyone for your patience during the migration.

****************************************

The Viewer-Managed Marketplace (VMM) Viewer is now a release candidate, and automated migrations will begin on July 23, 2015. Migrations will be done weeknights between 9:00 PM and 9:00 AM Pacific. Merchants with large stores (over around 5,000 listings) will be scheduled, and we will send an email (to the email address associated with your store) to provide you with advance notice.

For all Merchants, we will send an email at the beginning of the migration process, and another email once it has completed. Merchants will not be able to modify items in their stores during this time, but purchases will continue for any item that is not in the process of being migrated.

Once your store is migrated, you’ll need to use the Second Life VMM Viewer to manage the inventory in your Marketplace store. The VMM knowledge base article has been translated to all six supported Marketplace languages and will help you get up to speed on VMM.

If you experience any problems after your migration has completed, please file a support ticket under Marketplace Item Listing Issues.

In order to learn about VMM before migration starts, you can watch tutorials on our Official Second Life  YouTube Channel. Start with
