Creating your first product in Second Life

right click on folder/New Clothes/New Shirt

Congrats! You just made your first Second Life product, but now is time to send it to your shop, but first you have to edit the permissions.
10-right click on your shirt/ properties
you have 3 options modify, copy and transfer
modify: is when you gave the next owner the permission to change your creation, this is usefull for flexy skirts, unrigged meshes, in this case we will unmark it.
copy: allow the next owner to copy the product, I always let this one marked, cuz is very common lost something in the inventory, so a copy is always useful.
transfer: just for products you wanna share with everyone for free, if you buy a mesh or a texture, I strongly recommend unmark this one to avoid future problems for your store.
In Second Fife you can have 2 stores styles, Inworld and Marketplace. Marketplace is a product catalog in the browser. The Inworld is like a real store, you build in a land with shelves, etc, etc. Lets focuss only in the Marketplace store for now, is easier for beginners.
11- sending the product to Marketplace
right click in your folder/ Copy to Merchant Outbox
12-Select your product and click Send to Marketplace
13-Go to https://marketplace.secondlife.com/
on the website click in Merchant home them Manage listings, is where you will find the product you send.
