@Cindyy
Really late reply but...

"If what I've learnt is correct, they deduct these credits to help balance the IMVU economy."

You can be right however, more credits taken away from users in general means more people will re-buy credits. Server's aren't just a one time buy thing. They take a lot of money to maintain. IMVU doesn't really have a "Balanced" economy. If they were trying to keep everything balanced and all, they wouldn't have credit sales every 3 days. They would also not allow resellers. I can see where you are coming from as well.

I'm p sure its legal being that its in the catalog it's something that you , the consumer purchases in order to benefit the provider by buying the sticker at whatever large amount.

Support stickers are 90% of the time used to transfer large amounts of credits...

I don't know how it can be considered a good way to transfer credits, unless you have a large income of credits coming in. Right? Otherwise you wait 2 weeks to get credits for support or custom work.

Having created a Support Sticker by request by a customer, I can honestly say they are really personal choice rather than a popular product. Although I do know a few developers who have been successful with the profit from such stickers, they are not best selling products from what I have seen.

I'm just about to make my first support sticker, I can't say that these are a good thing or a bad thing, they pose no harm so I don't see them as being bad, to me they are just another way for someone to pay for a custom they may want, having more payments options can only be a good thing, right?

Exactly...we are going to need all the options we can get and this seems a fair way of getting payments for items.

Support Stickers are very useful for transfer of credits, despite waiting for 14 days.

Well, if you're an artist/creator;

Pro's -
Can accept credit payments for art
Can get large amounts
Can have supporters buy them for you to gain extra income
Supporters can buy them to help support in general

Con's -
Honestly, just the two week waiting period. If you have vip and buy it a month at a time, sometimes you can use the credits to create more items. Literally the only downfall of having them up.

Adding to your con list:
1. You are not guaranteed those credit. If it turns out as a credit fraud you won't receive any credits.
2. There is a percentage cut. (Support stickers are usually to transfer large amounts of credits for low level tiers), If you charge 20,000 credits for a piece of art work, you'll only receive about 18,000 credits (I forgot the percentage cut). Or you can over charge the customer for not being a high enough tier.

Thanks for the addition! I myself had no idea about the percentage cut. I thought that was only for countries not USA related. It had to deal with taxes and such.
