From Earn2Life Wiki: Money-Making in Second Life
Pay4Visit offers allow you to visit many new and exciting places in Second Life, while getting paid for it.
Information of the Pay4Visit service
Using Pay4Visit allows you to explore a vast amount of locations from shopping malls filled with clothes, vehicles and other gadgets to cosy, warm areas where you hang out with other residents.
While using Pay4Vists, you will be required to spend a certain amount of time within the location which can vary from as small as 1 second to 7 minutes. The longer the time, the higher the amount of lindens is paid to you. This is not always the case, however, as an offer can provide L$ 3 for waiting 1 minute and another will give L$ 2 for waiting 3 minutes.
You are allowed to spend your time freely like waiting within these locations such as building, interacting with other residents, reading signs and playing games. However, keep in mind that the Earn2Life HUD will periodically check for interaction so be sure to keep moving and explore otherwise the offer may be cancelled. This is to prevent camping and ensure that honest residents are paid their money.
Occasionally, the Earn2Life HUD will also require you to click a red button located on the HUD, another measure to make sure that you are not a bot. Failure to do so will result in the offer being cancelled. Be sure to keep an ear open for an alarm, indicating that the button needs to be pressed.
Pay4Visit offers are virtually endless with more offers appearing each day. You are able to go straight to another offer after completing one. However, You will be required to have a rank of Silver on Earn2Life to do so, otherwise you must wait 15 minutes before you can attempt another offer.
How to complete Pay4Visit offers
The image below describes how to complete the Pay4Visit offers:
- Choose a Pay4Visit offer using the HUD Device.
- The system will send you a landmark.
- Teleport to that place.
- Stay there for the required time and examine parcel.
- There might be a quick questionnaire about the parcel you are visiting; be sure to look around and answer the questions honestly (read more here)
- Get paid!
(Note: Sometimes the hud will give you a message that the offer is unavailable at this time due to the customer of the offer only allows a certain amount of visitors per hour) Sometimes the hud will tell you there are no available offers inworld and to check back later or go to earn2life.com. Also, read the article describing how to complete Pay4Visit offer step-by-step.
Button and movement
You will also be prompted to click on the Earn2Life HUD from time to time during your offer. The green button will beep and turn red, signaling you to click on it. This ensures that you are actually in Second Life instead of having the SL client minimized or doing other things.
Be sure to have your sound turned up or you may miss the warning to press the red button. Many factors may cause the green button to not turn red, but you can hear the beep and press the green button. If you do not press the button when indicated, you will get a notice message and eventually your offer can be canceled, so don't minimize the SL client while the offer is going on. Instead, inspect the place in order to answer any verification questions asked by the parcel owner.
The HUD will also check if you are moving around and prompt you accordingly.
After the required visit time has elapsed, a dialog box may pop up telling you that the owner requires a number of questions be answered for the offer to be completed. This is to verify that you actually moved around the store and saw the items for sale or of interest. This does not always pop up; it is an option for the client as a security measure against bots. Click 'Go' on this pop up to get the questions. There could be one or more questions to complete by selecting the correct answer from choices on the successive dialog pop ups.
The questions are usually straightforward and concern things you should have seen at the location. They may usually be answered just by looking at the place and standing in one spot. You should get 2 tries but if you fail in both tries your offer is canceled and you may not be able to do that offer again for a while.
Another way to keep busy during Pay4Visit offers is the Fox Hunt. You must find 3 bright, glowing squares of a fox in order to complete this type of offer. These may be positioned anywhere on the parcel, and an indicator will appear just below the HUD telling you which direction to go, and how high or low they may be situated in relation to your avatar. (Hint: Some foxes may be located thousands of meters above you in a skybox. If this is the case, look for a teleporter near where you arrive). You do not need to finish in the alotted time but you must keep moving in order to keep the offer valid. After finding all foxes, you will be notified of your earnings. Usually, you may earn extra lindens than the initial offer payment.
When you start a pay4visit, it is necessary that you read the instructions, so that you are able to finish the objective. To do this, open your note cards folder in your inventory, and if you had accepted it, it will be the top one. Read carefully to understand the directions, and what it needs you to do, because if you don't, the timer will tick, and you'll be out of luck!
