Authorised Linden Dollar Reseller Program Ends



Back in 2013 Linden Lab prohibited the sale buying of Linden Dollars by companies who would subsequently resell dollars, often at a rate more favourable than the official Lindex Exchange.

In June 2013 Linden Lab permitted resellers to sell Linden Dollars but not to purchase them from residents, effectively forcing the purchase of L$ to go through the Lindex Exchange.

On 15th June 2015, Linden Lab has announced the end of its Authorised Reseller program, giving 3rd party money sellers until the 1st August to sell off any L$ they have remaining.

From 1st August the Lindex will be the only authorised place to purchase Linden Dollars.

Linden Lab:
We have expanded the payment options for Second Life users, and today, you can easily purchase L$ in more countries than ever before, using a credit card, PayPal, or Skrill, which supports a wide range of payment methods. We’ve found that these options support the vast majority of Second Life users, and we have therefore made the business decision to close the Authorized Linden Dollar Reseller pilot program.
We are contacting program participants directly to detail the next steps for them, and they will have approximately six weeks to sell off their L$ inventory
