Getting the Free Direct Delivery Bear 2012

This week Direct Delivery launched officially by Linden Lab which is great news for Merchants and for the rest of the SL community that use the SL Marketplace to shop all things SL. At the bottom of the blog post it seems Linden Lab are giving away a FREE limited-edition Linden BearI think this Direct Delivery Bear is rather cute and loveable. :p

Get this free limited-edition Linden Bear in celebration of the new, more efficient way to receive purchases from the Marketplace — not BOXED! The bear will be delivered to a new Received Items folder. Grab your free bear, find it in your Received Items folder, and get a notecard telling you more about the changes to the Marketplace.

Check out my snapshot below of the Direct Delivery Bear 2012. 🙂

  1. Bad idea. The marketplace should have limits on how many items are in it, and base that on the number of prims the land the magic box is sitting on. Without a box, that limiter will not work.

    SL is bought and paid for by people putting money in to buy stuff. When they go to stores, the prices keep the land the store is on paid for. But if you can sell stuff without paying for a store, why keep a store? We already see the shrinking world and disappearing sims. So pretty soon we’ll have a webstore to buy clothes but no virtual places to wear them — all the sims will be gone because nobody is paying for land anymore.

    A simple limit on the number of items in Marketplace based on how much land one has is a fair and simple solution. And it recognizes that both the marketplace and the inworld stores (and land sales) are necessary for the virtual world to survive. Today’s approach makes owning land a sucker’s bet — you can sell your wares and not have to give LL any money back. So who is going to be paying for all these wonderful sims that have no more financial support?


  2. I’m actually looking forward to this, though I have just started migrating some of the stock across and because of naming issues, it’s not as easy as I thought it would be…though that’s me who made it harder for myself, not the other way round.

    As for what Shockwave says, I don’t think there’s ever going to be people who go web only unless they can’t afford to have an inworld store.

    Marketplace is great for browsing stuff and buying the occasional knick knack but it’s not a place I would buy furniture from, because I’d like to go and test out said furniture in the mainstore before choosing (I’m ultra picky like that) nor is it a place I’d buy a house from…again I’d like to see the dimensions first hand before I choose it.

    Marketplace is a good place to get demo’s or quick clothes…but there’s noway that it will ever *fully* replace inworld shopping for a number of reasons, not the least is that people actually LOVE shopping inworld and being part of that whole experience.
