  1. And here you go again: Blame what stuff??? Where in my original comment did i say a word about customers??? Did you even understand at all what i was talking about? I was talking about general MP user, everybody who searches something on MP, including me. We are all unhappy when we have to sift through tens of pages of irrelevant search results. I very much agree with Alwin, because i search for something specific on MP on a regular basis, too. I know what Alwin's problem is, but man what is your problem??? "if you (general) blame stuff on disgruntled folks then you(general) are doing something wrong because they shouldn't be disgruntled with you(general)" I really don't understand where in the context of what i wrote does your response fit at all. I don't understand what you are even talking about. The reason so many people (general MP users, those who use MP to find something specific) are unhappy is 1) because so many merchants abuse keyword system, either on purpose or by ignorance/laziness; 2) MP search is broken even with all the keywords used correctly, and LL gets the blame for that, not "general you." Yes, they are not doing good business.
  2. huh????? ok, i dunno what each of you read into what i wrote, so let me spell it out to you..... means: Perhaps somebody who has been searching something specific on MP got very much fed up with thousands of gacha listings spamming the search results with irrelevant items (like what Alwin demonstrated) making it absolutely impossible to find what they were looking for. Maybe they got so frustrated and angry that they decided to take revenge on the entire gacha community and hired a hacker to start this attack on gacha resellers (see the Linden Assessment thread). That would totally not surprise me... care to explain what that even means?? what things are blamed? Whose customers? mine?? Alwin's? What does any of that have to do with me? Am i a gacha reseller? Maybe you need to read what is actually written instead of imagine what is written...
  3. /me wonders if the recent attack on the gacha resellers was perhaps some kind of retaliation from a disgruntled MP user...
  4. exactly. It clutters MY inventory, needlessly. I have 1500 or so items in my store. Say, 1 dress has 10 mesh body sizes in it. So there is already a folder in my inventory for demo of this item. If i put this folder of this demo (unboxed) on MP, too, it's 10 more items counted unnecessarily towards my inventory count, and they will always be there. You try the demo, and then you delete it. Problem solved, no unnecessary clutter in YOUR inventory. Me i can't, if i do what you suggest i have to keep them there for lazy people like you forever. x1500 items = 15000 absolutely unnecessary copies my inventory totally can do without. And sometimes there are up to 30 items in 1 demo, with all the variations and different parts for different mesh bodies, so 15000 items extra count is only a minimum example. So... NO.

    oh look, a Linden!! 👀 it's been a while...
  6. that's exactly why she is here on the Merchant forum in the first place. I think it is fairly obvious too. You will get used to it and stop noticing it eventually
  7. As a merchant you can only cash out a certain amount of USD per month. You can find your own trading limits here >> https://accounts.secondlife.com/lindex/economic_limits On this page it also says: " If the limits listed above don't meet your needs, you may request a review of your account to increase your limits. Include information about your needs. We'll review your request, and if appropriate create additional limits or make adjustments to the existing limits " So you cannot just sit and wait until you accumulate enough USD to cash out more than 5000$ in one go, to get some kind of withdrawal discount, because your limit to withdraw will most likely be less than that. Only if your store truly generates so much income that there is a need for you to withdraw more than 5000$ per month will LL consider to raise your withdrawal limits.
  8. at the rate this continues, soon there will be no business left to do at all, and i don't mean for SL merchants but for LL themselves. LL are sinking their own ship.
  9. Thank you for the translation!! Now it suddenly all becomes clear to me. I suggest all merchants brace themselves for what is to come next year. This year was only the beginning of it, the tip of the iceberg i fear... And in the end the ones who will end up paying for everything are the customers/shoppers. I am sure most (if not all) merchants will pass on any possible upcoming LL in-world fees to the customer. And if they don't, then so they should! So, playing SL will become more expensive. Which will make it even less attractive for the newcomers. The oldies who will not be able to afford the new prices will leave, too. If/when LL enforces this new fee system on all in-world sales the end of SL as we know it will be in sight.
  10. you sound like a frustrated Linden's alt.
  11. Is it really so hard to code in a notification for the affected merchants that their items have been unlisted, while your team keeps working on resolving the problem? I am sure that would make a huge difference to both the merchants AND LL in terms of lost sales. Because there might be merchants who don't even realized something has been unlisted...
  12. 2500% how? right now i'm paying 200$ to LL for withdrawing USD to my Paypal. For that price they could have easily transferred that to my bank account instead. And then if i want to withdraw those USD from Paypal to my bank account i will pay 4.5% currency conversion fee. The latter is absolutely unnecessary and could have easily been avoided, had Tilia offered an option to transfer to Bank account directly.
  13. Paypal would take 30 cents? do they do that? well then the hypothetical new marketplace could have an option to withdraw funds to a bank account directly? And BTW we still have to deal with PP on top of all LL fees right now... The least thing LL could do for us is to offer us an option with their praised Tilia to withdraw directly to bank account...
  14. right now you sell something for say 260L$ on MP, how much of that in USD will you put in your pocket, after all the fees are taken off? I saw this example calculation somewhere around here that LL is taking 31% off that. So, 69 cent for that item in your pocket. If you sell the same item on "another marketplace" for the same price =1USD, even if that hypothetical marketplace would also take 10%, you would still end up with 90 cent. 90 cent > 69 cent
  15. i think it is safe to say we can expect more fee raises in the near future. And possibly higher L$ exchange rate, on top of that.
