2017 NEW: HG: Shop smart in OpenSim: Check the freebies, check the prices.

Smart shopping in OpenSim: 
Check the freebies, check the prices.
Suggestions for smart shopping in OpenSim.

Executive  summary (action items)

  • Check the local freebies before you buy.
  • Check Kitely Market for competitive prices.
  • Kitely Market can deliver to most grids on the Hypergrid
  • And to some that are not.  
  • (More after the break, scroll down!)

    Freebies and commercial goods in virtual worlds

    • In most OpenSim worlds, there are virtual products free and for sale.  
    • Larger grids are likely to have more freebies and more products for sale.
    • Most grids on the Hypergrid, and some others can receive from Kitely Market.
    • Goods you get in a store may be exportable or not.  
    • If you expect to take them or wear them to another grid, be sure they are exportable.
    • Check the local freebies before you shop.  You may find what you want free.
    • Freebies may not be exportable, so you may not be able to take them to another grid.
    • Large grids will probably have more local freebies than small grids.
    • Check Kitely Market before you shop.  That will give you an idea of prices.
    • To search for local freebies on Kitely: 
    • Ctrl f gets the search panel; click the places tab,
    • This may work on other grids--I have not tested.

    If you are buying for use in a commercial video

    • As the creator for a letter granting you a license to use it that way.
    • Be sure the letter clearly specifies the product in durable way.

    If you expect to get email from a seller or market

    • Remember to check your spam file.  
    • Yeah.  Spam filters are really useful, except when they're not.
