'''Player shops''' are a type of [[real estate]] that can be rented by players.
 
A common warning on the chalkboard is that taking things, ''even fumbled items'' in a playershop will get you, for instance, '''heavied''' in Ankh-Morpork. Hopefully someone who doesn't mind getting fed to crocodiles, nailed upside down to the Brass Bridge, et cetera, will replace this with exactly where the boundaries are. (Recently, there was something about a barrel furniture?)

===Shop Counter===
 +
A shop counter allows things to be sold in the shop.  They come in different sizes, which have different capacities.
 +
 
 +
You can only have one shop counter in any room, more than one will not be able to be bought.
 +
 
 +
The capacity is in maximum items for sale and there are options for the stockroom size and counter type.
  
 
The shop float is simply a bucket that the shop owner and managers can deposit any amount of local currency coins into and withdraw any sum up to the total local currency it contains from. Withdrawls from the shop float are automatically made up of the largest denominations available, eg a withdrawl of $8565 will be issued as 1 AM Crown, 5 royals, 6 ten-dollars and 5 dollars.

A [[bank]] comprises one master counter and any number (including zero) of franchise counters. Franchise counters are maintained and operated by the owner of the shop in which they are located, and not the owner of the shop in which the master counter is located. If the franchise counter is either too full for you to make deposits, or too empty for you to withdraw funds, this has to be sorted out by the owner of the premises in which that franchise counter is located.
+
===Bank Counter===
 +
A [[bank]] comprises one master counter and any number (including zero) of franchise counters.
  
In all cases the deposit rate on the bank counter as a % of the amount deposited is controlled by the owner of the shop premises that the franchise counter is located in.
+
A franchise bank counter is connected up to a master bank counter by an option when purchased.
 +
*You will pay a setup fee and a monthly fee to the main bank that is settable (changeable at any time) by the owner of the master bank counter.
 +
*The bank balance and the float of the shop are tied together. This means that you cannot withdraw funds from a franchise counter if the shop float does not have enough money to cover the withdrawal. {{devblog|142}}
 +
*While the master counter has unlimited capacity, the franchise counters have a fixed maximum bank balance based on their size.
 +
*If withdrawing or depositing would make the franchise counter be off-balance greater than permitted by the counter size, then that operation will be denied. This has to be sorted out by the franchise bank counter owner with a credit note (see below).
 +
*Franchise counters are operated independently from the master counter. If unable to deposit/withdraw and you find the deposit/withdraw fees too high, contact the franchise bank owner.
 +
*If the master counter is trashed, you cannot deposit or withdraw money from the bank counters until someone replaces the master bank counter in the same shop, but your balance is saved and rent can still be paid by your account at that bank.
  
In addition, you are unable to withdraw funds from a franchise counter if the shop float does not have enough money to cover the withdrawl.<!-- see http://discworld.atuin.net/lpc/blog/blog.c?action=filter&blog=recent%20developments&id=142 -->
+
Look at a bank counter to see which franchise it belongs to, the current deposit rate, and the owner:
 +
{{Prebox|A heavily armoured and hardwood counter with a safe embedded into the surface. A logo marks this as a franchise of [bank].
 +
<br>A small sign indicates that the current deposit rate is [rate] and the owner is [owner].}}
  
The master counter has unlimited capacity.
+
The franchise counter owner has to equalise the balance to prevent too full/empty balance preventing people from depositing/withdrawing. This can be done this way:
 +
(at the franchise bank counter)
 +
create credit note
 +
 +
(at the master bank counter)
 +
process credit note <note>
 +
*When it is processed the person with the note either gains or looses the appropriate amount of money '''from their person''' to cover the note.

Rumour: If the master counter is trashed, your balance is not lost. Deposits and withdrawals aren't possible unless someone replaces the master counter, but rent can still be paid by the account.
+
===Blackboard===
 +
Shops can have blackboards in them. These are placed against a wall and can be written on or cleaned.
  
===Blackboards===
+
===Money Changer===
 +
[[Money changer]]s may offer the facility to change coins of one denomination for coins of another denomination in the same currency (e.g. changing dollars into royals) or that of exchanging coins in one currency for those in another currency. The shop owner sets a % fee for each transaction type, and stocks the changer with coins.  The fees set can be viewed with "list rates on changer".

This will either allow you to buy a current edition of a newspaper, or both the current edition and any back issues you wish to purchase. If a shop has more than one of these, you may need to specify which one you wish to purchase from.

There's two things that only a playershop <del>owner</del> lease holder (or their appointees) can know about:

*{{Furniturehelp|poker|Discworld furniture help: Poker table}}
* Summon the spulluf, which sells playershop counters.
+
*{{Furniturehelp|blackjack|Discworld furniture help: Blackjack}}
 +
 
 +
==Commands==
 +
Some things can be done by everyone:
 +
*Check the royalties owed with 'royalty' or retrieve them with 'collect royalties', note that you must collect them before they expire after two weeks or you lose them.
 +
*'measure property' to know how many square yards are available in that property.
 +
*'waiting' to see what you submitted to sell to the shop and is on the approval list.
 +
*'retrieve id' to get your item back, where id can be seen with 'waiting'.
 +
*'notifications' to see and change the conditions in which you'll receive mails.
 +
 
 +
Some things can only be done by a playershop <del>owner</del> lease holder (or their appointees). See the help file below for a full list.
 +

Notifications
 +
    You may elect to receive notification by mail when an item you have

    sold is approved via "notifications item_approved". The same command

 +
    Shopkeepers may elect to receive notification by mail every week on

    the status of their shop via "notifications weekly_status". Note that
 +

 +
                                                                         
 +
    The command "notifications" will tell you what your current         
 +
    notification subscriptions are in this shop.                         
 +
 
 +
Retrieving Sold Items
 +
    You can "retrieve" an item you sold which continues to be listed in 
 +
    "waiting" by specifying the waiting item id.  In many cases this will
 +
    be preceded by a hyphen-minus character (-), which is a required part
 +
    of the identifier.                                                   
 +
 
 +
Description
 +
    This is a player house that allows a player to add commercial       
 +
    properties and elements to it.  You can make people have entry fees, 
 +
    run commercial enterprises.                                         
 +
                                                                         
 +
    Commercial enterprises will have different commercial objects in them.
 +
    The commercial objects will all have their own help associated with 
 +
    them.                                                               
 +
                                                                         
 +
    The use expression controls the access to all the elements in the   
 +
    commercial property.  It will be called with a specified 'type' which
 +
    can be used to turn on and off various elements of the shop.         
 +
                                                                         
 +
    User defined functions can also be enabled in the room.             
 +
                                                                         
 +
    The "purchase stuff" command makes an npc turn up that you can then 
 +
    buy equipment for your commercial property off.                     
 +
                                                                         
 +
    The commercial property can be 'terminated' at any time using your   
 +
    housing agreement.  This will put the property up for auction again. 
 +

Player shops are a type of real estate that can be rented by players.

Shops

A list of player shops on the Disc. There is also a list of player-run banks.

The table automatically updates from individual shop pages, when such exist, so editing should be done in the Playershop template in those.

Shop Counter

A shop counter allows things to be sold in the shop. They come in different sizes, which have different capacities.

You can only have one shop counter in any room, more than one will not be able to be bought.

The capacity is in maximum items for sale and there are options for the stockroom size and counter type.

The shop float is simply a bucket that the shop owner and managers can deposit any amount of local currency coins into and withdraw any sum up to the total local currency it contains from. Withdrawls from the shop float are automatically made up of the largest denominations available, eg a withdrawl of $8565 will be issued as 1 AM Crown, 5 royals, 6 ten-dollars and 5 dollars.

Bank Counter

A bank comprises one master counter and any number (including zero) of franchise counters.

A franchise bank counter is connected up to a master bank counter by an option when purchased.

  • You will pay a setup fee and a monthly fee to the main bank that is settable (changeable at any time) by the owner of the master bank counter.
  • The bank balance and the float of the shop are tied together. This means that you cannot withdraw funds from a franchise counter if the shop float does not have enough money to cover the withdrawal. [1]
  • While the master counter has unlimited capacity, the franchise counters have a fixed maximum bank balance based on their size.
  • If withdrawing or depositing would make the franchise counter be off-balance greater than permitted by the counter size, then that operation will be denied. This has to be sorted out by the franchise bank counter owner with a credit note (see below).
  • Franchise counters are operated independently from the master counter. If unable to deposit/withdraw and you find the deposit/withdraw fees too high, contact the franchise bank owner.
  • If the master counter is trashed, you cannot deposit or withdraw money from the bank counters until someone replaces the master bank counter in the same shop, but your balance is saved and rent can still be paid by your account at that bank.

Look at a bank counter to see which franchise it belongs to, the current deposit rate, and the owner:

A heavily armoured and hardwood counter with a safe embedded into the surface.  A logo marks this as a franchise of [bank].
A small sign indicates that the current deposit rate is [rate] and the owner is [owner].

The franchise counter owner has to equalise the balance to prevent too full/empty balance preventing people from depositing/withdrawing. This can be done this way:

(at the franchise bank counter)
create credit note

(at the master bank counter)
process credit note <note>
  • When it is processed the person with the note either gains or looses the appropriate amount of money from their person to cover the note.

Blackboard

Shops can have blackboards in them. These are placed against a wall and can be written on or cleaned.

Money Changer

Money changers may offer the facility to change coins of one denomination for coins of another denomination in the same currency (e.g. changing dollars into royals) or that of exchanging coins in one currency for those in another currency. The shop owner sets a % fee for each transaction type, and stocks the changer with coins. The fees set can be viewed with "list rates on changer".

Money changers care about the amount of each individual type of coin in them, and will only function if they contain sufficient of each type needed to carry out a transaction.

The owner pays a 1% use fee for every transaction directly from the shop float.

Newspaper Box

This will either allow you to buy a current edition of a newspaper, or both the current edition and any back issues you wish to purchase. If a shop has more than one of these, you may need to specify which one you wish to purchase from.

These seem to be currently bugged, trying to buy one fails.

Pickler

Picklers allow players to pickle things such as body parts and vegetables that would otherwise rot and decay. Players have to pull the handle on a pickler to pickle stuff.

Postal Counter

This allows the sending and reading of letters through the in-game mud-mail system.

Smithy

Can be used like other smithies to fix items, might charge a little extra.

Caged greeter imp

Says something whenever someone enters the playershop. Imps can be trained to speak messages in different languages and can also be trained to forget messages.

Opinion poll

Poll your customers!

Gambling

The poker and blackjack tables can be used to play games of bluff and chance.

Commands

Some things can be done by everyone:

  • Check the royalties owed with 'royalty' or retrieve them with 'collect royalties', note that you must collect them before they expire after two weeks or you lose them.
  • 'measure property' to know how many square yards are available in that property.
  • 'waiting' to see what you submitted to sell to the shop and is on the approval list.
  • 'retrieve id' to get your item back, where id can be seen with 'waiting'.
  • 'notifications' to see and change the conditions in which you'll receive mails.

Some things can only be done by a playershop owner lease holder (or their appointees). See the help file below for a full list.

  • Summon the spulluf, which sells playershop counters - syntax: purchase stuff
    • Q: What happens to furniture in a playerhouse or a playershop when the lease changes hands? Aberlon 00:20, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
    • A: It stays in the shop and transfers to the new owner. This happened with inventory in shop counters too. Quotid (talk) 03:27, 9 December 2017 (EST)
  • > syntax functions; functions shop help list; functions shop internal; functions room help list; functions room internal
  • These functions are supposed to be part of a system of expressions that would, in theory, automate approving playershop items(!). Last I heard, no-one uses it 'cause it's broken.

The bookshop on Diamond Place, Bes Pelargic sells copies of the Shop Owner's Guide, which mentions almost every command to do with player shops (but, not unreasonably, does not duplicate the functions list).
