Can I sell back my KCs ?

Post by Carlos Loff » Wed Apr 09, 2014 5:15 pm

One of the reasons I abandoned SL and got so happy with Kitely is because this prices make it possible to attempt new business with less initial investment - But suddenly one huge question came up to my mind

If I earn KCs selling in the market or renting spots, can I get the profit of my business back in dollars ???

No, you can't sell back your KCs, but you can use them to pay for Kitely services such as for a Premium Account or for fixed-price worlds.

You can sell things in the Kitely Market for real USD.

Thank you for your fast answer, guess renting lands should also work better using Paypal if we want RL currency from our Inworld business, cheers

You know what would be cool? If you could use the marketplace for collecting rent. I don't think we can do that now, but it would be very cool. Create an item in the marketplace for 1week, 1month rentals and choose USD only. Your tenants would buy an new rental subscription every week/month.

I wonder if the Kitely lords would be up to adding a "Services" category.

I see what you mean, we can collect in US dollars, its not a bad idea - Or else inventing an in world object with a script that allows direct payment top Paypal

There is already a category called "Business Tools > Rental Systems" but I don't think this is what you're referring to or that it would be intuitive for people to look there.

The marketplace has to be for delivered goods as that is the only thing we can verify has been given in exchange for the money. That said, the bought item can grant people access/rental rights to land if someone creates a script system that manges that. However, Kitely won't be a party in any way to making sure that the user-created system functions correctly. As far as we're concerned the transaction was completed successfully once the item has been transfered.

That said, adding some future official option to manage the renting of land via the marketplace is an interesting idea.

I wonder if it is possible to create a rental box with a script that counts time wile a given world is online and in spite of going off when no one is in the land, still updates and resumes accurate counting when it comes back online during the next vist taking in account the offline time lapse ???

This issue is of most importance because it can make a big difference in boosting worlds creation and new creators/developers accounts coming in world . Im one of them and Im willing to have a 16 region if I manage to run a good rental service

curious...will there be a time when kc's are exchanged for rl currency? Don't really care just curious if this might be something on the back burner? Or possibly using a third party exchanger like "inbiz" where kitely bucks could be redeemable then exchanged for rl currency?
