Currency Exchange in Second Life, region Villeneuve. Search on "Island Oasis Information Portal"
When coming from any existing grid to begin at a new one, there is never a shortage of the number of residents asking if there is a way to transfer their currency from grid to another. There is no one universal answer for that question.
There is, however now a way to exchange your $Ls for $Ps. At the Island Oasis Information Portal in the region Villeneuve in Second Life there is now an exchange terminal. Exchange rates are for the most part 88% conversion rate. Thus, 100L=88P. If you are exchanging amounts 7500L or 10000L the exchange rate is increased by 4% to a 92% conversion rate.
There are currently two ways to exchange your currency. The first uses a 6 panel vendor where you can purchase an exchange package in the following increments: $500L, $1000L, $2500L, $5000L, $7500L and $10000L. The second is using the "odd Amount" exchange vendor. Any increment may be exchanged over a $10L minimum. This option allows someone who has for example $367L to exchange and they don't have enough to purchase through the 6 panel vendor.
Some of the benefits include being able to exchange any amount, including amounts too small for LL to process to a paypal account. Saving time of cashing out from LL first to get your real life currency. One interesting perk for some users may be the ability to exchange $Ls and transfer the $Ps to multiple avatars all within a single transaction.
Transaction Histories are available to residents via the resepctive websites for the indivudual grids of Second Life and Island Oasis. So that anyone making an exchange will have records for both worlds.
