IMVU's announcement regarding how Creators can now earn money for their product sales directly from IMVU.

The original announcement will stay locked so everyone has an easy way to access and consume that information.

IMVU staff will be actively monitoring the discussion here, however, may not respond to each and every post. We will however update the FAQs as and when needed based on this discussion.

Reminders: Please keep your posts on topic. As per our forum rules, baiting, attacking each other, etc is not okay.

Thank you.

LOL. That is important since it looks like nearly everyone is stressed out. I've been in chat rooms, and this latest change is weighing on minds.

Enjoy your 9th thread while I head out to Welcome rooms to herd in more victims, I mean, nice people who are new to IMVU.

Please, please send us notices on any major changes. I can no longer read these.

Aside: Gah, my halo won't stay duct-taped on.

From the FAQ page:
Quote:
There is no change to the way purchases with Promotional Credits are processed - there is no pend and Creators receive Developer Tokens for such sales.


I have seen no other mention of tokens in the forums.

There really hasn't been anything new in that area. I think they are focusing on just getting things up and running for now. There is a phase 2 planned (no details) so we just have to wait and see for now.

Honestly I believe credit sales will go down dramatically as people who don't dev and aren't quite wealthy won't be able to afford credits. On here the prices are double what I used to pay for creds from a reseller. I think this is the biggest worry for those of us that don't dev.

It is a concern for those of us who dev and do not make a lot as well. I depended on re-sellers for credits to dev and shop. Just will have to wait and see how it all plays out.

For now, re-sellers can sell till May 13th so might want to stock up. I already have.
