Shop filtering and in-world currency
Control what your users see, wear, and spend in Breakroom. Here you'll find more information about filtering the Shop to meet your specific needs, as well as a discussion of Silver and Gold currency.

Filtering the Shop contents

With Breakroom's Shop filters, you can limit your users to purchasing additional avatar components only from our pre-screened collections. You can set up or change these filters at any time through the "World Customization" tab on your World Dashboard.
To change the Shop filters from your World Dashboard, simply follow the steps below.
  1. 1.
    Click on the "World Customization" tab.
  2. 2.
    Scroll down to the section titled "Shop Filtering Selection."
  3. 3.
    Check the box beside each collection you want to make available. Uncheck all of the boxes to make the entire Breakroom Shop available to your users.
  4. 4.
    Uncheck the boxes on any avatars that you wish to exclude.
  5. 5.
    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button.
Without these filters enabled, your users will have access to everything the Shop offers. If you enable a filter, only items within that category will be displayed in the Shop. Multiple filters can be activated at the same time.

Silver and Gold currencies

An example of the Breakroom Shop currency display.
As noted in our introduction to advanced avatar customization, Breakroom offers two types of currency for use in your world: Silver and Gold.
Silver is a strictly in-world currency, and cannot be purchased or exchanged for real life money. Each user will receive 30,000 Silver upon joining Breakroom. Additional Silver can be earned by completing quests and engaging in other activities.
Gold is a premium currency that can be purchased (and in limited cases, exchanged) for real life money. Some of our Shop items can only be purchased with Gold. In order to make these items available to your users, you will need to give your users a Gold "allowance," or make it possible for them to purchase quantities of Gold with their own money.
You can enable or disable Breakroom's currency displays through your World Dashboard. To do so, simply follow the steps below.
  1. 1.
    Click on the "World Customization" tab.
  2. 2.
    Scroll down to the section titled "Currency Selection."
  3. 3.
    If you wish to disable all of the currency displays, uncheck the box labeled "Currency."
  4. 4.
    Alternatively, if you want to disable the Gold display alone, uncheck the box labeled "Gold Purchase."
  5. 5.
    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button.
Disabling the currency display will not affect the current contents of your users' wallets. If your users have a Gold or Silver balance, they will still be able to use this money if you give them access to the Shop.
