Here, a specific processing procedure that can be realized when the present invention is applied will be described with reference to a flowchart shown in FIG. The processing procedure shown below is an example, and there are innumerable processing procedures that can be realized in addition to this.

  It should be noted that the transaction management server device 10 according to the present invention has an exhibition acceptance means for accepting an exhibition when an exhibition is accepted in the virtual B exhibition acceptance unit 31 as a virtual B exhibition acceptance means in one virtual space (virtual space B). User acceptance of the exhibition acceptance unit 11 as a virtual B user confirmation unit 32 as a virtual B user confirmation unit in one virtual space (virtual space B), and virtual A user confirmation in another virtual space (virtual space A) Items in the user confirmation unit 12 as a user confirmation unit that accepts user confirmation of the virtual A user confirmation unit 22 as a unit, and the virtual B item confirmation unit 33 as a virtual B item confirmation unit in one virtual space (virtual space B) An item confirmation unit 13 as an item confirmation unit that accepts confirmation of an item when Item exhibition acceptance as item exhibition acceptance means for accepting items to be displayed in another virtual space (virtual space A) based on the confirmation results of the user confirmation section 12 as confirmation means and the item confirmation section 13 as item confirmation means A bid acceptance unit 15 as a bid acceptance unit for accepting a bid when a bid is accepted in the virtual A bid acceptance unit 25 as a virtual A bid acceptance unit in another virtual space (virtual space A), Based on the bid of the receiving unit 15 means, the currency confirmation unit 16 that confirms the currency in the virtual A currency confirmation unit 26 as the virtual A currency confirmation unit in another virtual space (virtual space A), and other virtual spaces ( When a successful bid is established in the virtual A successful bid processing unit 27 as the virtual A successful bid processing means in the virtual space A), one virtual space (virtual sky B) a successful bid process of the virtual B successful bid processing unit 37 as the virtual B successful bid processing unit in B) and a successful bid process of the virtual A successful bid processing unit 27 as the virtual A successful bid processing unit in the other virtual space (virtual space A). And a successful bid processing unit 17 to be executed.

  Below, the outline | summary of an auction is demonstrated and it demonstrates using an operation | movement flowchart about the transaction management server apparatus 10 which performs the operation | movement mentioned above after that.

  First, an exhibitor who desires to exhibit a product or the like using the information processing system of the present invention performs a predetermined operation from the user terminal 40 or the user terminal 50, whereby information displayed on the seller's screen is displayed. Enter. Auction information such as the start price, bid unit, end price, number of items sold (successful bidders), etc. as well as the name of the product, the content of the product, the end time of the bid, etc. Enter.

  The auction is held and the bidding process and the bidding process are the same as those of the conventional auction system. When a new auction ID is registered, a bidder is recruited by presenting a bid item and a bid deadline on a Web page, and when a bidder notifies the auction system of a bid amount through this Web page, it corresponds. The database is updated as needed while associating the auction ID with the member's ID, bid amount, and the like. In addition, referring to the database as needed, the bid amount is reflected in real time on the Web page that is the auction site. Then, when the deadline expires, the member who presented the highest bid amount is recognized as a successful bidder. Of course, there are various rules for making a successful bid decision without waiting for the expiration of the deadline, such as when the bidder presents the desired successful bid amount presented by the exhibitor as a bid amount.

  In any case, when a successful bid is determined, the corresponding auction ID is stored in the database in association with the member ID of the exhibitor and the successful bidder, the bid price awarded, and the like. If there is a successful bid auction item in the database, a successful bid notification describing the contents of the auction and the amount of the successful bid is transmitted to the corresponding successful bidder and exhibitor's email address by email.

  The auction system also has a function for allowing the party to evaluate the other party's transaction attitude when the auction is successful. The structure of the auction site is designed so that when an auction transaction is completed, the auction site is guided to a web page for notification of the evaluation. In the web page that has been informed, there is a function for evaluating the situation at the time of the transaction in multiple stages such as “very good” “good” “normal” “bad” “very bad” It includes a comment field for reviewing transaction details. When the transaction party returns information about those evaluations input on the Web page to the auction system by its user terminal, the auction system associates the evaluation information with the member ID of the party and stores it in a predetermined database.

  First, in step S1, the exhibition acceptance unit 11 performs an exhibition acceptance process. When the user Y ′ logs in to the virtual space B from the user terminal 50 and the user Y ′ tries to exhibit an item in another virtual space, the virtual space B exhibition receiving unit 31 of the virtual space B transaction management server device 30 User ID of user Y ′ in space B, item ID of the item to be exhibited, exhibition destination virtual space information (in this embodiment, virtual space A) to be exhibited, and user in the exhibition destination virtual space The user ID of Y ′ is transmitted to the exhibition reception unit 11. In step S <b> 1, the exhibition acceptance unit 11 accepts these pieces of information transmitted from the virtual space B exhibition acceptance unit 31.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 2, the user confirmation unit 12 performs user confirmation in the virtual space A and the virtual space B. In this process, the user confirmation unit 12 inquires of the virtual B user confirmation unit 32 whether or not the user ID of the user Y ′ in the virtual space B is registered in the virtual B user management DB 38. In addition, the user confirmation unit 12 stores the user ID of the user Y in the virtual space A (in this embodiment, the user Y ′ in the virtual space B is the same person as the user Y in the virtual space A) in the virtual A user management DB 28. The virtual A user confirmation unit 22 is inquired whether it is registered or not.

  In step S <b> 3, the item confirmation unit 13 confirms items in the virtual space B. In this process, the item confirmation unit 13 confirms that the item ID of the item that the user Y ′ intends to exhibit in the virtual space A is registered in the virtual B user management DB 38 in the virtual space B.

  In step S <b> 4, the item exhibition receiving unit 14 performs a process of listing items in the virtual space A. In this process, when it can be confirmed in step S3 that the item ID of the item that the user Y ′ intends to exhibit in the virtual space A is registered in the virtual B user management DB 38 in the virtual space B, the item exhibition receiving unit 14 requests the virtual A item exhibition acceptance unit 24 of the virtual space A transaction management server device 20 to exhibit the item.

  In step S5, the bid accepting unit 15 accepts a bid in the virtual space A. In this process, when the user in the virtual space A bids for an item that has been submitted via the item exhibition acceptance unit 14, the bid acceptance unit 15 receives a bid notification.

  In step S6, the currency confirmation unit 16 confirms the currency in the virtual space A. In this process, when the user in the virtual space A bids for the item in the virtual space B exhibited in the virtual space A, the user in the virtual space A who is a bidder in the virtual space A It is investigated through the virtual A user management DB 28 whether or not the currency corresponding to the bid amount is owned.

  In step S <b> 7, the successful bid processing unit 17 performs a successful bid process in the virtual space A and the virtual space B. In this process, when a successful bidder in the virtual space A is determined, the successful bid processing unit 17 sends an exhibitor Y ′ in the virtual space B (Y in the virtual space A) via the virtual B successful bid processing unit 37 in the virtual space B. ) To the user X ′ in the virtual space B who is the successful bidder X in the virtual space A, the ownership transfer process of the item exhibited in the virtual space A is executed.

  In addition, when the successful bidder 17 in the virtual space A is determined, the successful bid processor 17 receives the successful bidder X in the virtual space A (X ′ in the virtual space B) via the virtual A successful bid processor 27 in the virtual space A. The successful bid amount is transferred to the item seller Y in the virtual space A (Y ′ in the virtual space B).

  As described above, according to the present invention, when a user logs in any one of a plurality of virtual spaces that the user has registered normally, the item owned by the user and the settlement of the item are separated. It is possible to execute accurately and safely in the virtual space.

[Example of concept of transaction between virtual space A and virtual space B]
Next, an example of the concept of a transaction between the virtual space A and the virtual space B along the processing procedure based on FIG. 6 will be described with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 7A is a diagram schematically showing the virtual space A and the virtual space B.

  The right side of FIG. 7A schematically illustrates the virtual space B. The user Y ′ in the virtual space B operates the user terminal 50 and intends to exhibit the item B1 in the virtual space B in the virtual space A.

  The user Y ′ in the virtual space B has also registered as a user in the virtual space A on the left side of FIG. 7A (user Y in the virtual space A).

  On the other hand, in the virtual space A on the left side in FIG. 7A, the user X in the virtual space A operates the user terminal 40 and makes a bid for the item B1 exhibited from the virtual space B to the virtual space A. , Trying to make a successful bid for item B1. Since the user X in the virtual space A has registered as a user X ′ in the virtual space B, he / she has the right to bid for the item B1 sent from the virtual space B to the virtual space A.

  The user X can participate in the virtual space A auction as the user X and can participate in the virtual space B auction as the user X ′ via the user terminal 40.

  Further, the user Y can participate as the user Y in the auction of the virtual space A and can participate as the user Y ′ in the auction of the virtual space B via the user terminal 50.

  In this way, in the case of users registered in each virtual space, it is possible to trade items in one virtual space and settle the item (transfer the winning bid amount) in the other virtual space become.

  FIG. 7 (2) shows the owner and the amount of currency A in the virtual space A (indicating that A is a currency that can be traded only in the virtual space A) in the virtual space A transaction management server device 20 in the virtual space A. And changes in ownership and amount of item A (item A1 and item A2: A indicates that item A can be traded only in virtual space A) are shown in a table format.

  In the case of FIG. 7, it is assumed that the user X makes a successful bid for one item B1 in the virtual space A. In this case, the user X of the virtual space A uses 70 units of the currency A corresponding to the price of the item B1 exhibited from the virtual space B to the virtual space A, and the user of the virtual space A who is the exhibitor of the item B1. It is necessary to pay Y.

  As a result, the ownership amount of the currency A of the user Y in the virtual space A decreases from 100 units to 30 units, and the ownership amount of the currency A of the user X in the virtual space A increases from 50 units to 120 units.

  In the virtual space A, the owner of the item A (item A1 and item A2) is not changed.

  FIG. 7 (3) shows the owner and amount of currency B in the virtual space B (indicating that B is a currency that can be traded only in the virtual space B) in the virtual space B transaction management server device 30 in the virtual space B. And changes in the owner and amount of the item B (item B1 and item B2: B indicates that the item can be traded only in the virtual space A) are shown in a table format.

  Since the item B1 awarded in the virtual space A can actually be traded only in the virtual space B, the amount of the item B1 owned by the user Y ′ in the virtual space B is 2 to 1 (to the virtual space A). The number of items B1 exhibited is 1), and the ownership amount of the item B1 of the user X ′ in the virtual space B increases from 0 to 1 (the item B1 exhibited in the virtual space A) 1).

  In the virtual space B, the owner of the currency B does not change.

[Modification]
