The virtual goods component is added to any item you upload; both for items that you are marking for sale, which will appear in the store, and items you are only uploading for your own use, including your own regions.
The virtual good component has been broken down into sub-categories, making it easier for you to fill in the necessary information.
Here you can find the Type and Category, Audience rating and Customization Capabilities.
Content Type is where you will choose the category for the content, for example, you will need to choose the Clothing content type if you have made an item of clothing.
Category is used to place the item in the right item category. For example, if you have chosen the content type as Clothing, and you have made a jacket, you will need to pick the Item Category as Clothes>Tops>Jackets.
Audience Rating is where you can choose the rating of your item. There are five ratings to choose from; Everyone, Teen, Mature, Adult, Explicit. There are also check boxes here to check if your item contains certain content like violence or adult content.
Customization capabilities allows you to choose the level of inworld customization allowed on your item. You can choose from basic, disallowed, full or source access. When you choose one of these, there is a small description of what customization it allows underneath.
Note: The type Pet is currently locked and is no longer used now. If you want to create a following minion as pet, you can choose generic to set the pet as a spawnable item, and set the category in pet if you want to put it in the shop.
This is where you can add the primary description, optional fields and translation descriptions.
