Reselling or transferring ownership of your NFT
Before the sale/transfer is initiated, the current owner of the NFT should gather the Private Redemption Key from the NFT metadata.
Once the transfer is complete, both the previous owner and the new owner of the NFT must fill out a Transfer of Ownership form.
Once an IMVU admin has verified all the information in the form, the previous owner will no longer see the item in their inventory, and the new owner will see the item in their inventory.
