Marketplace Announcements / Marketplace & In-game transactions
« Last post by King Kunta on November 26, 2017, 09:56:51 AM »
Hello everyone,

As of today, we have decided to allow players to sell new purchased items / giftcards from the marketplace to other players in-game for in-game currency. To do this, items can be purchases from the marketplace, but do not have the item delivered to yourself. It must go directly to the person who purchased it with in-game currency. Here's how this would work:

Player A is willing to spend $15 on the marketplace and wants to buy something for Player B. Player A purchases the item from the marketplace. Once the order is completed by Player A in the marketplace, Player B pays Player A with in-game currency. Player A uses the in-game
Code: [Select]
/mporder command and asks the CSR to deliver the order to Player B after informing them of the arrangement.

An example where this would not be allowed is:

Player A buys an item off the marketplace and requests a CSR to deliver the order to themselves. Player A receives the order, and then sells it to Player B for in-game currency.
Doing this may result in a permanent ban.



To make these transactions as secure as possible, we strongly recommend both parties screenshots the conversation!

Finase just posted a really good explanation of the new system and the reasons behind the change to the VIP program at https://forums.opis-rp.com/feature-documentation/announcement-regarding-update-x-r2/. I suggest everyone check it out for more info.

I'd say who ever has platinium needs to pay a cheap amount of money (can be considered as an upgrade) since he already payed the first one with the said price otherwise it's pure bs and nothing but quick-earning opis lads.

What you're implying is unfair and I don't think you fully understand what goes into running a community like Opis. Servers, TeamSpeak, etc all amount a considerable cost per month, and help keep us running. The revenue we bring in through the marketplace goes directly towards these expenses. Our community has improved since management changed hands and will only continue to get better moving forward. I understand better than anyone that change is difficult thing to accept and manage, but I can assure you that with constructive feedback, we'll push forward on the changes that matter the most.

I understand the costs and stuff but man, if you think like our way. If we get a chance to upgrade with cheaper price, there is more buyers than with full price. What i mean by that is, guys who have platinum ain't gonna buy that new thing for full price. Yes some of them will, but if you're looking to catch some money, then i'm positive that you get more money out of that if you just give platinum guys a upgrade. Just my opinion tho, that's how i see it.

How is it Unfair?  Its just like if you have gold vip you pay cheaper for upgrade to platinum than how a person buying plat by itself....  The only difference is that someone that has platinum gets the discount on the "new vip"

There was a previous comment made of "Sad that Platinum VIP players have to buy VIP again to gain the goods." Nothing could be further from the truth. You can continue to use your existing VIP level as it works today and we will not take away anyone's current VIP level. What you have today you'll keep until you decide to upgrade to a VIP subscription. The only difference is that no new enhancements will be added moving forward. No one is being forced to purchase something new -- it's each players' choice to move to the new subscriptions.
I see, so who payed for platinium back in the days has to pay for the new oxyn shit or w/e it's called.

I do not agree with this, I find it very unfair since it has worked like this since the beginning. Why not keep it as it is and make those who have the VIP subs able to buy more than 2 houses?

I understand where you're coming from, but in order to keep the community sustainable we have to balance what players want with the amount of revenue coming in. I believe our development team has done a remarkable job of balancing these things, and over time, the VIP subscription levels will become even more packed with features for players.

Platinum VIP is indeed useless now, but at least we get to keep it and it’s perks.

This is correct. We are lowering the amount of houses you can purchase as a regular player. This being said, if you currently own two or more houses you will keep them until you sell them.

Sad that Platinum VIP players have to buy VIP again to gain the goods. I think Platinum VIP owners should get the new VIP that has the same price as plat had. Otherwise it's like we, platinum vip's have thrown the money down the river...

Indeed

Agreed.

Not to mention those who dont have credit cards/ who used visa or amazon gift cards cant be up to date with thid and wouldnt be able to afford

 I understand  its to assist the community but think about the profits u might lose asqell
