Just about everything under the sun has virtual equivalents that can be bought in Second Life. There's clothing, furniture, houses, vehicles, and gadgets (like animation overrides) which have no real-world counterpart. Most vendors are small businesses that appreciate your support: other Residents like you.

You can teleport to different stores inworld and browse at your leisure, or if you'd prefer to use the web, the Xstreet virtual marketplace is the place to be. Inworld and Xstreet are complementary; many vendors have presences on both because inworld makes it easier to see goods as-is, while Xstreet is quicker to search.

Inworld

  1. Find a store. For example, enter a term like "jewelry" in the upper-right search bar, then press Enter ↵.
    • You can click the Classifieds tab to only show Resident ads that include that keyword.
  2. Click a listing that interests you, then click the Teleport button to go to the store.
  3. When you find something to buy, you can usually right-click the object and Buy or Pay it.

XstreetSL

  1. Go to Xstreet SL and Login if you haven't already.
  2. Type a keyword and click Search.
  3. Click through listings to browse them. When you find something to buy, click Buy now. Follow the confirmations and the item is delivered to your inventory inworld.

For more information, see our Xstreet SL help articles.

Tips

  • You need to get Linden Dollars before you can buy anything.
  • In many cases, purchased items arrive in a box that must be unpacked. Don't wear the box; instead, follow the Opening boxes instructions.
