Selling Files Rules + Tips

The main purpose of FilesSalesForum is to create a safe place where developers can buy and sell files without fear of losing their IMVU accounts due to copyright violations.
As our community grows we feel the need to update and create new rules which will ensure your safety, and the saftey of all of our users.
Our rules are strics and you are obligated to follow them. If you don't understand them or if you have any questions feel free to contact a moderator or other staff member.

[ Staff Note ]


Being a seller in this forum is NOT a "right".
It is a privilege.

To gain this privilege your shop must be organized and without any copyright or rule violations.
Your files may not be created using free items not originally created by you.
If you want to become a seller you will start a new topic and set up your shop, however when you are done you must include " Approval need" in your sthop Title and a moderator will review your shop and inform you if your shop is approved or what must be changed to gain approval.

[ Reselling Files Notice ]

If you are re-selling files you MUST clearly state you are reselling either whole files or parts of files.
It must be stated clearly and visible with credit to the original creator.
There are no exceptions.

• Your imvu account must be at least 1 year old. This will ensure that you have some short of experiance with imvu ToS.

• You must have the FSF banner posted in your homepage at all times. You can create your own banner to match your homepage degisn or you can choose from a variety of banners here. Advertising FSF is vital. You can find the banners Here: {Link}

• You are responsible to keep your file shop in order and provide to your customers all necessary information. You are obligated to post in public the derivation link of every file available.

• All images in your shop must be maximum 500*500 pixels and properly rated. If you are selling AP files you are required to use the AP section of the forum or properly covered previews.

• You are allowed to bump your shop once every 10 hours. Make sure you keep your shop active. Shops inactive for over a month will be deleted. We always keep a record of all shops and recovering your shop is possible.

As of July 5th, 2011, on you are only allowed to sell layered .psd of .xcf files. View the above post about this for more in-depth information.

As Of December 1ST, 2015, Due to IMVU's Latest changed, Paypal is now the only acceptable payment option. To use credits is at your own risk of both the buyer and sellers accounts. The FilesSalesForum and their staff claim NO FAULT for any transactions gone bad with Paypal, and as thus you should handle any transactions problems with Paypal, and alter the FSF staff of the issues so appropriate action on the forum can be taken.

• All files in your shop must be 100% created by yourself. If you have resell rights of a file you want to sell in your shop you are required to mention the name of the original creator. If you fail to do so we will assume that you are trying to re-sell a file and your shop will be locked.

• You are not allowed to sell freebie files or use parts of a freebie in your files. You are not allowed to sell images found for free in any website (stock images). All your work must be 100% yours.

• Recolored textures provided by textured meshes are not allowed to be sold. However recreation of such textures is allowed.

• If we think that your name is related to any kind of fraud we hold the right not to approve your shop even if you comply with the above rules.


[ Saftey Tips ]

Tips on how to sale files in safety.
Writen by Mortis


• ALWAYS make sure that the FSF client user name is the same one at IMVU
• Check if the user haves a catalog and if is necessary you can check reviews left by others.
• Keep a list of everything you sale and to who.
• Make sure to do your rules and to make them clear big letters if is needed.
• If you suspect file theft or anything suspicious CONTACT A MODERATOR do not make things public + drama.
• If you see the user is new to IMVU or is a recently made account you have all the right to ask them questions (Do it in private) or to simply cancel the order if you feel uncomfortable selling to them.
• Always watermark your work and images people can easily cut parts of the image and use them.

• {OPTIONAL} If you don't wish several people owning the file don't make the sale amount big, make fair quantities like 5/5 or 10/10 if you need to price higher do so the less people owning the file the less possibility of theft also will be easier to keep track.

You may not post any real currency transaction information in public, such as paypal email. Real currency transactions are not allowed to be made in public and FSF has no responsibility for a transaction gone bad.



This rule may need some revising, paypal has become an option in a few shops?
I still agree to the above rules and such c:
