I read that post a few times also, and wondered if it really meant FP stuff, or anything at all, was being stored via the Merchant outbox.
Perhaps better to place a copy of everything in a box inworld - and anything that is modifiable can become a box if it is needed to be "hidden".
As for the new system sending the wrong items to a customer... if the FP items are not listed, then they would not be delivered to anyone. The items that get delivered are the ones that are associated to listed products on the Marketplace.
It took many merchants a while to get used to Direct Delivery, we had all been used to magic boxes. Now it is time to move on to a new system. Try it, it is not as difficult as it first appears and I can vouch that it does work
If I kept objects set to FP in my unassociated inventory now, sooner or later I just might end up accidentally selling it. As I say, normally part of finishing a project is setting end user perms on it -- I dont put FP end user perms on anything intentionally.
I think I'll stick with merchant OB. After it's gone, I'll probably just close my store. & I keep a FP & NT copy of everything I make in my inventory, as I send my FP stuff to my alts, & my BF's accounts, in case I want to move my store to one of those later on. The NT copy is what I usually send to the merchant ob, not the FP.
I meant that the new system would get my FP & NT copies mixed up, since it sends from your in world inventory. as I name my objects 1 name, & they stay one name. I do occasionally addd FP or NT to the end o the name, so I don't confuse them. like : Apple FP or Apple NT. but then when I list the NT copy I list it simply as Apple.
The reason I keep a FP copy in my inventory, in world, is anything I have FP I send to all my accounts as FP. Because if I don't SL sometimes eats things, so if an alt got a copy, of say a doll I made, & the copy my alt has is NT. I can't send it back to my main account.
Ok when I was harassed out of my old account, I sent some houses I had built, to my alt, I had set them to NT, when done. Did not keep a FP copy. I kept getting bullied, & LL would do nothing, & my inbox kept getting so many messages I couldn't block users fast enough. So I boxed my stuff & sent it my new account, then closed the old one. I went to put my stuff back into a NEW store, everything was FP, as I had set them. I put everything in the mob as NT. & kept my FP copy as a back up. I got to those houses, & they were NT, so I am stuck with them, & can't sell them. So that is why I keep a FP copy of everything I make, on all my & my bf's accounts, as well as my sellable NT copy.
Merchant ob wasn't hard to use anyhow. I'd send my item to it, open my store page IN VIEWER, list my item, & I was done. So I dunno why this new system was set up anyhow. You could manage your store, in viewer, to begin with anyhow, or via the web. whichever you prefered.
