There was a big announcement on the Kitely Blog today about the new Kitely Market which is now open to Merchants which is really good news to hear. This is a major milestone for the Kitely team and it’s the first phase of many still yet to happen. Kitely Merchants can now create a store and add products to the store. It’s not open to Kitely buyers yet but it will become available sometime within the next few months or so. Stay tuned for that!
We achieved a major milestone today with the completion of the first phase of the Kitely Market! Merchants can now create their stores, and we are offering a limited time promotion which can save you money and increase your sales with free advertising.
Currently the Kitely Market is not open to the public and its only limited to Kitely Merchants. This allows time to get ready for the main launch in June/July 2013. Very exciting!

There is a limited time promotion which is worth doing if you are interested in joining the Kitely Market.
Limited Time Promotion
Normally there’s a fee of 100 KC to add a product to the Kitely Market, and 25 KC to add a variation. However, we are offering a limited-time promotion to encourage merchants to add products now, so that they’ll be ready once the Kitely Market opens for buyers.
The promotion includes the following benefits:
- Add 20 products to your store for FREE (no listing fees).
- If your first 20 product listings adhere to our guidelines then you may request to be allowed to add an unlimited number of products to your store for free. The link that allows sending this request appears once you have added 20 products to your store.
- If you create at least 100 product listings that adhere to our guidelines then you’ll be considered for Featured Merchant status. Featured Merchants will be featured for free on the Kitely Market homepage, and they’ll get free in-world shops in the official Kitely Plaza.
The free listings promotion will expire once the market is open to buyers. However, Featured Merchant benefits will last for an entire year after the market opens for business.
See the Kitely Market Fees page for a complete list of fees, and additional details about this promotion.
Please note that there are no fees for uploading content in Kitely: only for listing products. Furthermore, if you don’t have a world of your own where you can create your products then you can use the free Kitely Merchants Sandbox.
Great progress is being made and hopefully there will be alot of people creating stores on the Kitely Market to make it very successful for years to come.
