I’ve been working frantically vendors that can be paid through PayPal™ (either from a PayPal™ balance, or directly with credit cards). These vendors do not require any sort of external support, and receive payment notifications direct from PayPal™ using the new HTTP-in support for LSL. Right now, initial test vendors are up in my shard store in Cape Suzette, selling my swing door script and re-color/re-texture HUDs for $1.99 and $3.99 (USD) respectively.
I’m waiting for server version 1.27 to be rolled out across the grid before vendors go out to my beta test group, which should be Wednesday 15th. Assuming no last minute bugs, I’ll be releasing two vendors on Monday 20th:
- A basic (“value”) model for anyone who is on a budget, or just wants to dabble without committing too much yet. It won’t handle sales in L$, and configuration has to be done by interacting with the script (dialog menus and chat) rather than by notecard. Priced at L$375/$1.49.
- A pro model, intended to suit the majority of users. Works as a combined PayPal™ and L$ vendor, configured by notecard (so a script reset won’t wipe the configuration). Also adds more detailed sanity checking. Priced at L$750/$2.99.
After those two releases, several more vendors are planned. Aiming for a Friday 24th release are:
- A menu driven vendor that can sell multiple different items.
- A touch (single prim, detects touch location on prim surface) driven vendor for multiple items.
Details of further vendors will be released later. Watch this space for more details on the first two vendors, including how to request a free review copy.
