Introducing the AF Virtual Shop!


Recommended Posts

Just starting fooling around with this. I really enjoy some of the features. Loving the username glow. I also noticed that it is encouraging some more discussion in anime. :sarcastic:

It is also on the left sidebar in your wallet when viewing the Shop:

Spending your Credits

There are currently two shops, the Anime Forums Official Shop and my own shop called "Optic's Shop"

 

Feel free to take a browse by clicking the Shop link on the navbar:

The difference between the two is that items in my shop are services I offer, whilst items in the official shop are for things like adding a glow to your username.

 

Interested in opening your own shop?

You should be able to do so clicking Shop Management and then Add New Shop. Do send me a message if you want to do this as there are quite a few things to check. You will also want to consider what services you want to offer (such as a graphics shop) and also prepare some images to go with each item in your shop, as well as how much they should cost.

 

We are open to feedback and hope you have fun using this system - hopefully this will also encourage more participation in our Anime sections. ;)

 

Any issues do let me know.

i enjoy this new item in the anime forum gotta start saving up that 50,000 i suppose ^-^

For shopkeepers:

Notifications when a member purchases an item from your shop has now been fixed.

 

Just make sure this box is ticked for your item in the shop:

purchase-notification-tick.thumb.jpg.408971b80530b902754c8f0cdcb29957.jpg

 

Then when someone purchases it, you will get a direct message from [CPU] Neptune like this:

This is an UNATTENDED account! DO NOT expect a reply back from @\[CPU\] Neptune !

 

 

FYI: @Kirry and @Davis

I hadn't looked at this yet. I saw the credits by my name and other members name's and kind of wondered what was going on with them. I'm surprised with myself, I'm usually more detailed when exploring a new forum than that. It's a neat feature though.

to me truth be known I'd like to see this site be big enough to have it's own virtual real online shop as well , @Optic I'm may be thinking too big or just dreaming but could be interesting

Not thinking too big at all. I used to be a pretty involved mod on an RP forum which had an online shop that sold T-Shirts, hoodies, bags, even undergarments with their logo/designs. Of course it was one of those "run on a third-party server" sort of shops, but it sold merch and the owners got a cut of the profits, so I guess it worked

 

yes ive always thought big and I constantly have plenty of time to think , maybe I have an over active mind

but unfortunately being but a mere humble member here its not some thing that I would be able to implement and being the activity currently of the site it may not seem enticing to be ran by a third party server

but that was the idea the was in my mind to see this site big enough in its own rite and having a third party server here offering its merch and if the site made a little to help it survive develop and expand well all the better , and a site with more to offer well you know
