Kitely Market

Kitely Market is a web-based on-line store to distribute virtual items for use in on-line virtual worlds such as OpenSim and newly emerging worlds which can take a range of 3D models and virtual goods.

See this YouTube video for the features of the market place…

Example Store

I set up an online store to test the facility, listing AIAI T-Shirts and AI Planning MOOC (AIPLAN) T-Shirts with shirt and undershirt layer variants for each. These are already available on the Second Life Marketplace for delivery into Second Life. The store front can be accessed via:

Sample product listings showing the variants can be accessed, e.g., via:

Kitely Market Vendor View

Items are added to the Kitely Market via the inventory of a Kitely Avatar… which is freely available. Note that premium paid Kitely membership is available to give avatars more flexibility in the areas they can visit. Items can be created in Kitely, or transferred from OpenSim and Second Life (if you are the creator/owner of all the contents) via Stored Inventory/Second Inventory or the Singularity Viewer’s content save/load facility. More information on transferring content from Second Life to OpenSim/Kitely is given here. More information on the Kitely Market and how it works is available here.

The listing page to edit the product details is shown in this sample screenshot…

The vendor can attach a PayPal account to the store if they wish to receive payment in US$ as it comes in. If this is not given then after a period of 90 days any US$ balances are converted to Kitely Credits (KC) for use in the Kitely OpenSim-based virtual world.

The minimum listing price for an item is US$1… a US$0 (free) price cannot be set. The minimum price us 10KC (Kitely Credits) or US$1 (300KC). But it is possible to offer free demonstration versions of products, so that is also a way that a free product can be offered.
