As awesome as it’d be, Perks don’t magically appear through telepathy, so you’ll need to put on your creative hat and create some in order to sell them in-game. To implement, activate, and receive Core Credits for sales of monetization features such as Perks, a creator must be a member of Core’s Perks Program. Information regarding the Program can be found here.
Note that Perks are made entirely by the creator and they are responsible for functionality and support for them. However, Manticore does provide some example/template perks in games such as Farmers’ Market and others that creators may use to create their own perks.
Perks can become disabled or banned if they cause significant support tickets or appear to violate the Terms of Service. If a perk is disabled or banned, please feel free to contact Support to fix it.
