We are thrilled to announce that the merchant side of the new Marketplace is now open to all merchants.

Check out the overview video to see all the cool features we have added to save merchants time and effort in managing their listings, including :

  • predefined text that you can add to lots of products and manage in one place
  • multiple stores andย  add partners to stores so they can list too
  • split profits
  • searchable indicators for InWorldz Plus, Group Member and new resident discounts in store
  • quick and easy teleports to locations in-world, using our TP2 locations or manual location
  • multiple item delivery for each listing, ideal for notecards and gifts
  • demo items with instant delivery
  • our incredible “bulk editor” that lets you change many products at once

Too much to list here, but watch the video to see these and more

To become a Marketplace merchant :

  1. hop over to our Hub and pick up a Merchant Kit and a password from our terminals : http://tp2.me/terminals
  2. watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1PqjhsMdSk to see how to set up your Depots
  3. then log into the site at https://iniw.net/admin/merchants-listings.html and list your products
  4. if you had an old inBiz account, use the orange Import button on the listings screen to import your old products

Full user guide coming soon but there’s help on all the forms to get you started.

We’re still in Beta so you many still find issues but we think it’s ready for folks now.

We’ll be opening the main Marketplace to the public at the end of May, so we hope as many people as possible will get busy and get some products listed, even if it’s not everything they sell straight away.

 

TP2

Launching the TP2.me network from inIW!

Powered by the professional network developed for the new marketplace and other services, TP2.me brings the solution to the eternal problem of outdated landmarks, IZURLs, SLURLs and location links.

You create a simple code for your landing pad and use it in landing pads, teleport sticks, teleport boards and you get a snappy web link that you can use in notecards, blogs, social media, or wherever you need it. Best of all, if you move your landing pad it will update everything in seconds!

Yes, every teleport stick, teleport board and web link will bring people to your new location without you having to do a thing!

Dead easy to set up, really user friendly, and backed by the power and resilience of a top-class network. We are thrilled to bring this service to market.

As a cool extra, your TP2 Codes are quickly selected in the marketplace, places to visit and other services upcoming VERY soon from inIW, saving you time setting up, and always staying right up-to-date.

Don’t you need one less thing to worry about?

Visit the store and pick up a set of TP2 Pads to get started : http://tp2.me/tp2-me

It’s been over a week since my last update, so I wanted to let you know I am still here and working hard. The “last” few interface bits are taking longer than I hoped, but that’s the nature of the job. I’m releasing the TP2.me system tomorrow so that merchants can get those set up if they want to. They save a lot of time and have all sorts of benefits but they aren’t required so you don’t have to buy them. The income would be nice of course but I am not forcing people into spending money they don’t have to ๐Ÿ˜‰

The merchant side of the marketplace should be ready sometime later in the week, barring too many hours searching for a missing bracket in thousands of lines of code! To draw a parallel here, it’s like looking for a single punctuation typo in a huge novel, written in three languages. Needle in a haystack doesn’t come close. Fortunately I wrote debug code into all three sides from the start, so I have a magnet of sorts. Enough mixed metaphors though ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I’d drop some pictures in here so you can see some of the stuff that has been added. It’s all mid-debugging, so fixing one thing sometimes breaks something else (like my store names for example!) but it’s coming together and all the new functionality is in place, including multiple store managers, new location lookups, multiple item delivery for a product, and demo items, split pricing, simplified screens, much more help, and the super speedy new delivery and inventory system, tons of tweaks and a few rewrites. I’m exhausted, but hanging in there and doing 8-12 hour days until this thing is live!
