Selling items in the Sansar Store

The Sansar Store allows content creators to share their original content, letting other people use their creations to enhance their Sansar experiences. As a content creator, you may sell content on the Sansar Store for Sansar dollars (S$). This article describes how to list and edit an item in the Sansar Store.

Item Listing Guidelines

The Item Listing Guidelines aim to help creators list items effectively so that buyers can quickly and easily find what they're looking for. To help promote an enjoyable experience, creators must adhere to these guidelines when listing items on the Sansar Store.

Please make sure to review the Item Listing Guidelines prior to creating a listing.

    Once the item is listed successfully, you can start editing the listing in your Manage Listings page.
Note: You can only list items that you have uploaded to Sansar. You cannot list default items or items that you have purchased from the Sansar Store. 

Editing a listing

Once you have created a listing for your item, you can give it a store title, set a description, set a price, and upload images that showcases that item. The Edit Listing page also allows you to save changes to your listing's information, delete the listing, and make the listing publicly visible in the store. 

Before you start editing your listing, please make sure that your listing and its information is compliant with the Item Listing Guidelines

To begin editing your listing:

  2. Log into your account.
  3. Once you are logged in, look for the user.png icon in the upper right corner of the website.
  4. Click the icon to open a drop down menu.

  5. Click Manage Listings to see a list of all of your items that are listed and unlisted in the Sansar Store.
  6. Click on the item name, image, or the Edit button under More Options to start editing the listing that you want to edit. 
  7. In the Edit Listing page, fill the fields to provide information about your item. See Item Listing Guidelines for more information on each field. 
  8. Save your changes, if needed.
  9. Once you are happy with the information and you are ready to make your item publicly visible in the Sansar Store, click the checkbox beside This item is listed and publicly visible in the store and then, click the Save Changes button.
Note: Listings are not visible in the store until you check the box for This item is listed and publicly visible in the store and click the Save Changes button.

Updating an existing listing with a new item

Note: As of March 19, 2018, only listings for scripts may be updated with a replacement.

You may occasionally need to update your listings in the Sansar Store with updated, corrected, or improved versions of the same item. You can do this without creating a new listing, which means any existing links to your listing are preserved.

To update an existing listing in the Sansar Store:

  1. In the Atlas, click Create to launch the My Experiences app.
  2. In the my experience app, click Edit scene edit_icon_sm.png on one of your existing scenes or experiences. If you do not have any existing scenes or experiences, you can create one by following the guide for Creating an experience.
  3. In edit mode, upload the new item that you want to use to replace your existing item. It is helpful to give the item a different name or version number to distinguish it from the original item. 
  4. Set the filter on the Inventory panel to Created to view your uploaded items.  
  5. Find the new item you want to sell in the store, then right-click it and choose Replace store item.
