Add Items to the Marketplace

Once you’ve created an avatar, wearable or entity, you have the option to sell it in the Marketplace. This guide walks you through the steps to upload it to the Marketplace so that you can start the process of having it reviewed and published.

Note

Prior to adding your item to the Marketplace, we recommend that you use the Marketplace Item Tester to ensure that your item works the way you expected and does not have any script errors.

Limited Edition Items

You can choose to create a “limited edition” item by setting the quantity available. This ensures that only a specific number of your item is available for purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To create a limited edition item, simply check the box “Item is a limited edition” when you fill out the form to submit your item to the Marketplace. Then, enter the number of items you want available for purchase. If you enter a number, say 25, you are saying that only 25 copies of your item will be available for purchase.

Unlimited Rezzing of Your Item

When you submit your item to the Marketplace, you can allow users to rez your item multiple times within a single domain. This allows users to create forests from a single tree (that they purchased) or to rez multiple streetlights from a single item in their inventory.

This setting is exposed in the item’s JSON file. To allow your item to be added multiple times within a domain, add "certificateType": "domainUnlimited" to your item’s root JSON file prior to submitting your item.

Marketplace Categories

All items submitted to the Marketplace must fall under one or more pre-defined categories. It’s important to correctly categorize your items as it helps other users find your content in the Marketplace.

Note

Our Marketplace team reviews each submission to ensure items are correctly labeled. Items may be declined if they are not accurately described or extraneous categories are marked.

Below, you’ll find descriptions of each Marketplace category and examples of items they include.

Additional Notes

Follow these guidelines when uploading content to the Marketplace:

  1. Use only content which you are legally entitled to.
  2. Do not use a code obfuscator, our review team needs to be able to read your scripts.
  3. Audio should sound clean and be 16-bit uncompressed WAV or MP3 files.
  4. Items may not have .js root files. You should either make an app to run scripts, or attach scripts to entities that will be rezzed through a .json file.
  5. All entities must have a name, even if they are invisible or simple primitives.
  6. Please use English in your package description, support text, and code comments.
  7. If needed, you may use Markdown syntax in your description text.
