No Transfer Items & Buy vs. Pay

So ... how many people did the same thing as I did when frantically doing their last minute holiday shopping in SL and purchased a NON-transferable item for your friend or loved one? Don't be shy, raise your hand. Now come on, I know I can't be the ONLY person that did that.

Shop-owners need to post clear signage in their store stating that items are no transfer. Most do, some still do not. WTF am I going to do with men's clothes? ( OK, so I'll probably wear them, but that's not the point I am trying to make here!) I want to buy specific things, and give them as a gift. I didn't want to give a gift card, or I would have purchased one.

And another thing ... Why do we have 2 options for paying for merchandise?

Some shops use buy, others use pay. Why is that? If I am paying my land tier, or tipping a sexy Hooters n' Shooters Dancer, then by all means, the pay option works. The buy option on the other hand allows you to see what you're getting, and often you can see the permissions on those items ... you know, to prevent dumb-dumbs like me from buying no-transfer items.

Let's keep it simple people. Keep Sav happy, and the world will be a better place!
