Hi all ! Question to other merchants. Can someone buy TO many [different] demos?  For example, i got 2 customers, one bought a total of 57 demos of all different items and 1 full product in the last year and another 42 different demos and never ever a full item.. Maybe its me , but it gives me a weird feeling...Is this me being paranoid or not ? So question is  , how do other merchantssee this/ think about it?!

And no my demos arent broken in anyway so people cant just use them, they got an auto destroy script and a rigged and linked demo box in/on them i tested on differents alts

@AlineSusanne Yes I think you're being paranoid. Some people are careful with spending in sl and like to look at as many options before buying something. Whenever I discover a store I like, I tend to grab a lot of their demos and keep note of stuff to buy later. So if people are buying your demos, take it as a compliment that your items are catching their attention.

as a customer I will get a couple of demo from a shop

if I like the quality (mesh fit and texture work) then I will get a whole bunch.  Then I will go thru them all. And I might buy some or none

i got some hair earlier this week from a hair stylist I haven't been to before. Liked the 2 demo I got. Then I got about 8 demo altogether.  Bought 2.  Then went back the next day. Got another 6 demo then bought 1

my marketplace purchase list has about this ratio.  For every about 6 demo I get then I buy about 1 on average overall

i am pretty ruthless in deleting demo from my inventory. So I can often go back and get the same demo again, as I can't remember what it looked like

i tell you what happends. timed demos get ripped of because its a freebie as long as you stay on lands that don't allow scripts to work. and if scripts don't work then they can have infinite demo time basically turning a paid object in to a freebie.

With a box floating around over their head?  Sexy!

Thats why the moment i figured that out, i added a rigged demo box to items, floating above head..

Probably go though about that many demos for each final purchase.

I had a customer, who picked up the same gift every week for years 😂, so you encounter funny/weird things ppl do. It is rather harmless someone picks up so many demos, although a little odd. Just see it as a customer service.

Why would you even attempt to try demos at the event when it's so laggy?  That's just crazy talk.

I mean if it took you like 30 tries to get there do you really want to have to come back at another time? Its kind of a pick your poison thing lol. In my defense I didn't know it was a timed demo til I afk'd to get a coffee and came back.....
