  Electric Sheep Company to Launch New ‘Second Life’ Shopping Site

The Electric Sheep Company plans to launch a new third-party Second Life shopping web site to replace SLBoutique.com, which acquired and relaunched last year. Merchants who have existing shops on SLBoutique will be migrated over to the new service, "Shop OnRez," next Monday, July 23, with the new shopping site set to go live on July 24.

According to the Sheep, "Shop OnRez will be the first service of OnRez, our consumer software brand, and there will more to follow." More of what, I wonder? In the short term, Shop OnRez merchants are promised a better, more dependable, and more usable e-commerce site, with selling capabilities extended deeper into Second Life. I sell a few items through SLBoutique (under avatar MiraWhirl Mainline) and look forward to checking out the new digs. Hopefully the transition will be seamless--some vendors sell dozens (if not tens of dozens) of items, so having to tweak individual goods for the new service could be a major pain.

Oh, right. I wasn't sure if more consumer brands or services were on the way. So we're talking more services under the OnRez banner, I presume.

Right, more services under the OnRez banner, is what I believe he meant.
