The NC Mall (Neocash Mall) is a feature on the site Neopets, which allows the users to buy clothes and accessories for their pets with real money. There have been numerous debates between the users as to this just being another way for TNT to make more money, but whether they like it or not, it's going to stay. Many people have grown accustomed to the NC Mall and are referred to as "NC Addicts". Due to contrary belief, the NC Mall has become a great success. People have been spending over $1000, just for these virtual items.
Neocash is the currency which is used in the NC Mall. Users can purchase Neocash straight from the NC Mall (Payment method includes MasterCard, Visa Card, Paypal, UltimatePay) or purchase them in real life stores. The only benefit of purchasing them from the store is that you get gift boxes (1GB per 500NC) and a virtual item. The conversion of currency is $1US is 100NC. NC Cards can currently be bought at these stores :
Shoppers Drug Mart
If you can't access any of these, you can always buy them on Ebay or here on the forum. NC Cards come in three denotations ; $10, $15, $25.
Neocash also has a expiry date (Which I find to be utterly stupid), so If you don't use it in a certain period of time, you'll be given some random food items). Lastly, remember that Neocash can never be refunded (Regardless of you being frozen). So before you go and spend hundreds of dollars, think twice, Is it really worth it?
There are a wide variety of items to select from, and there all categorized into different categories.
Self explanatory. Where all the latest items come into first.
Most bought items in like a week's time frame (Not 100% sure).
Neopets - Clothing
Where you can purchase various different upper-wear and lower-wear. They stock everything from gowns to leggings.
Neopets - Shoes
Self explanatory. Shoes and socks stock here.
Neopets - Accessories
The items here are rather cheap from the other parts of the shop. The have quite a wide selection of items to buy from.
Neopets - Backgrounds
Most backgrounds usually stock for 200NC. The NC Backgrounds are usually MUCH better than the normal backgrounds that can be bought with neopoints and there animated.
Neopets - Trinklets
Trinklets are the items that appear to the right, left, and above your pet. Not much to choose from, as many have retired.
Neopets - Superpacks
The most expensive items stock here (Not the most expensive items ever, but in comparison to the other items currently in the shop). Superpacks are loaded with usually anywhere between five to ten customizable items which look nice when worn together. As soon as you buy them, you don't get the superpacks itself, but the contents inside open up automatically and enter your inventory. Superpacks sometimes have bonus items, which can be only gotten when buying the superpack.
Neopets - Thought Bubbles
Self explanatory. Thought Bubbles stock here.
Neopets - Music And Sounds
Music and sounds which can be heard upon visiting one's lookup.
Neopets - Food
Stupid section in the NC Mall imo. Who pay real money, to feed their virtual pet. If your that concerned, just put him in the neolodge.
Neohomes - Furnishings/Wall and Floors/Gardens/Additions/Superpacks (For NHs)
Feature that was just released in recent months. Personally, I just think it's stupid (Who actually views neohomes)?. Though, it is getting quite a few sales.
Specialty - Mystery Capsules
Mystery Capsules, is an ingenious idea by TNT. They make enough money off this, everytime they release one. Capsules, unlike superpacks, don't automatically open. Sometimes people buys 10s or 20s of the same capsules, because they want that capsule-exclusive item, which can only be gotten from that capsule.
Specialty - Faerie Shoppe
A shop filled with everything faerie.
Specialty - Game Tickets
Self explanatory. Game tickets stock here.
Specialty - Mysterious Morphing Experiment
A recent addition to the mall, which's popularity has grown quite big. You basically buy these items worth 600-800NC, and they morph over time into various other items (You get to keep all the items that your item has morphed into).
Another stupid idea by TNT. Remember though that there are not gift boxes. These are merely gift wraps, FOR your gift boxes.
Another recent addition, which many have grown accustomed to. Monthly collectible items are released every month in here.
From time-time, TNT will hold new events at the NC Mall, where new sections will be open. For example, right now we have the Spring, Altador Cup, and Quest for Knowledge.
The NC Album is a album where you can showcase all the Neocash Items you've purchased. Everytime you buy a new item, it will automatically appear in your album. Some of the available options that the album has to offer include ; Showcasing only a selected amount of items, organizing/ordering your items, and more. By default, you album is set to private. You can go enable it here (You can do this even if you haven't bought any NC Items).
Themed skins were introduced last year, were your album could have it's own theme. To date, only four themes have been released
Faerie Themed Album Skin
Heart Themed Album Skin
Spring Themed Album Skin
Winter Themed Album Skin
An NC Gift Box is an Neocash Item, that allows you to gift Neocash Items to other users (One gift box, can send one item). After this was introduced, many people started to trade NC Items, and soon a whole new market has arose.
Gift Boxes automatically appear in your Inventory as soon as you redeem a NC Card. The amount of boxes is calculated by : 500NC = 1 Box.
Currently there are ONLY two ways possible to get NC Gift Boxes. One is the obvious way in which you get it be redeeming a Neocash card. The other way is TNT gives out gift boxes on special occasions (Easter, Halloween, Christmas, etc.).
Just like normal items, if the receiver doesn't accept the NC Item, both the item and box will be returned back to the sender.
These will probably be repeated in the following years, when that occasion arrives.
The New Game NC Challenge
The New Game NC Challenge is just the same thing as the New Game challenge, except there are extra awards from Lulu.
The Games Master NC Challenge
The Games Master Challenge NC Challenge offers users two more game challenges per day which then if they complete successfully, they'll be rewarded with NC Items.
The Stocking Stufftacular is an NC Mall event exclusive to the month of December. You simply buy stocking packs from the NC Mall, hang the stockings on the day of you choice, and when the day you hung it on ends, you'll receive whatever was inside.
The Daily Dare NC Challenge
The Daily Dare NC Challengeis simply the same thing as the normal Daily Dare Challenge. Except, the scores are different to beat, and you'll also be awarded with better prizes.
The Neggstravaganza Surprise
The Neggstravaganza Surprise is an quite fun event in which you go negg-hunting. You must buy a special basket from the NC Mall (Sizes vary), and then active it to start. You then go to the Neggstravaganza Surprise page to start the hunt. When the hunt is over, your able to open your neggs and get the prizes inside.
The Altador Cup NC Challenge
The Altador Cup NC Challenge consists of five challenges (A new one released every week). Complete all five, and receive a bonus extra-exclusive Neocash item.
It's an special type of item from the NC Mall, which changes form from time to time (Also referred to as morphing). TNT usually doesn't tell what the changes will look like or when they'll be made. After your item has finished it's morphing, all the items it morphed into, will be in your inventory.
MME's start to morph, as soon as they retire from the NC Mall. The time that it takes to finish morphing, is always kept a mystery.
Just recently, a new concept was released called the "Mini MMe's". These work exactly the same as the Normal MMe's, except they cost cheaper and has less morphs.
Past Morphs Include :
If there is anything more than can be added, let me know by posting below. Thanks.
