    Over 100,000 servers have used Buycraft over the last 2 years.
    What is Buycraft, and why does my Minecraft server need it?
    Buycraft enables you to sell in game items/memberships to your community, allowing yourself to fund your server bills to keep your Minecraft server alive. Buycraft is basically an online shopping cart system for your own server!​
    How will my players use Buycraft?
    After you have created a Buycraft account, you are given an online webstore which you can use to promote your items for sale. Your players will visit this website and be able to purchase the items that they want, be it a collection of armour, or a monthly VIP membership.​
    What can I sell to my users, and how?
    Buycraft enables you to sell ANYTHING to your users, from a collection of armour upgrades, to monthly VIP memberships. When a player purchases a product, it is automatically processed on your Minecraft server, and removes all hassle of managing payments by yourself. All these different options will take the worry out of funding your Minecraft server.​
    Some of the awesome features available:
    • Create donation packages which can reward your players with anything you imagine.
    • Setup advanced packages for memberships ranks, with support for automatic Paypal subscriptions.
    • Many Payment gateways supported! (Paypal, Stripe, Google Wallet, Paymentwall, 2Checkout, Onebip, Paygol, Payza, and Coinbase.)
    • Coupon codes to offer discounts to your players.
    • Run promotional sales to gain attention to certain donation packages.
    • Cumulative ranking to enable your players to upgrade their ranks.
    • Custom variables to offer advanced customisation of your packages.
    • Detailed donation statistics to see how well your server is performing.
    • Multiple webstores per account, with the ability to create sub accounts for your other moderators/administrators on your server.
    • Advanced fraud protection to prevent chargebacks.
    • Webstores available in over 8 languages.
    • You can change your webstore theme and even integrate it into your own website.
    • Everything is hosted by us, resulting in a hassle free and inexpensive way to run your own webstore! The Buycraft platform is updated regularly with many new features added each month.

    This is already possible. In your command list, just add 'say {player} just donated!'.
    Also, the post you replied to is over a year old.

    Try downloading it from bukkitdev.

    HUGE SUGGESTION: Coupon Codes can be category specific or server specific. If the coupon is not valid on that server / category it'll tell the user that it is only valid for such and such category / server. This would be very helpful :)

    I am getting many paypal disputes for the reason "No Receipt" is there any way for me to defend against this?
  5. Offline


    Sorry, this is an issue you need to resolve with Paypal. We don't have the power to prevent these disputes.

    Once we get all major features released, i'll work on that. Added that to our list.

    This is normally to do with BukkitDev being offline.

    Oh, I didn't notice the files on your download page are links to bukkitdev files.
    Looking forward to Bitcoin support. How is pricing going to work with it?

    The API we use will convert from normal currency to BTC on the fly :)

    Hey lmc :

    Being a paid subscriber of BuyCraft, I have loved every bit of the plugin so far. It works, and it works well. On the admin side of it however, there's some love that needs to be given as far as adding, sorting, viewing, enabling, and such. These would make the web interface so much more user friendly. :)

    1] Enable/Disable link so that we can disable the web store as a whole
    At the top, there could be a link to disable the entire store with a message.

    2] Enable/Disable - JavaScript and AJAX
    For each item, you could use JavaScript and AJAX to enable/disable items.

    3] Move up/Move down - JavaScript and AJAX
    For each item, you could use JavaScript and AJAX to move the items up/down so the page doesn't have to be reloaded 20 times to move an item down 20 spots. Moving items on page 1 to page 3 is tedious...

    4] Display more than 15 items, something like eBay has (25-50-100-200)
    Again, moving things from page to page is annoying because once it's off of page 1, you've got to go to page 2, click move down, go to page 2, click move down, .... go to page 3, click move down, and so forth.

    5] A way to order the items in our stores without moving them up/down n times
    On the bottom of the page, there could be a drop-down box that lets us select how many items to display at once (such as 25, 50, 100, and 200).

    6] A way to re-order the categories
    Really useful. Enough said. :)

    7] Allow us to pick which category of items to view at once
    At the top of the web store page, have links to each of our categories (All, Items, Commands, Misc, etc) so that we don't have to move items down as much, just like 4-5 clicks instead of having to move an item down all the way from the top and cross-page.

    Having these categories available will also help with the issue I'm having where if I have a category with 10 items (1-10) and another category with 5 items (11-15), if I wanted to add another item to the first category, I currently have to move it down past the category with 10 items just to get it to the one with 5 items. Think of how YouTube organizes videos in your playlists. You don't have to move a video in Funny down through the Music playlist to get it to the bottom where the rest of the Funny videos are.

    Example: 16, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
    Moving item number 16 down 5 spots currently leads to this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 16, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
    The desired result would be this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

    Anyways, I'd like to hear your response about these suggestions. I know this is possible and would take quite a bit of logic work (and even more MySQL work), but it's still possible and would greatly increase the usability of the website, from an administration standpoint.

    Thanks for an awesome plugin so far! :)

    I think you need to support BCA


    Why? In Indonesia, most of us do not have Paypal, I do not host a international servers so I believe no one will be donate to my server via Paypal. I also could not handle the donations one by one forever, can you help me? Please.

    I am 13 years old but I am good at managing a community but I can not code etc bytheway please help me.

    Hi. I started a conversation with you, lmc. Could you please view it? :/
  15. Offline


    lmc has said (and I think it's in the FAQ) that he won't be adding country-specific gateways.
    You get a notification when you get a PM, so he will answer when he sees it/has time for it. No need to post it here.

    I just viewed http://support.buycraft.net/customer/portal/articles/932181-cumulative-packages-explained

    The image shows a perfect example of what it'd look like to a user who has already donated for a package in a category marked as cumulative. I believe my players don't get this screen as it still would let them pay the full amount.

    I have a category called "Donator ranks". It has 3 subcategories: Low ranks, med ranks and high ranks. The head category Donator ranks is marked as cumulative. The three subcategories are set to cumulative as well.

    What would be the issue? Please help!

    Nevermind. I did nothing and apparently it shows up correctly now.

    Glad you got it sorted out. Maybe it needed some time to update the cache or something.

    I would like to see gift codes, so like when somebody on my server wins the voting competition. I can just give them a code which they can use on everything in our shop. Like a code there is worth 10$ then they can use the code, example i want a rank it costs 15$ i have that code so i get 10$ off and only have to pay 5$.

    Coupons are already available to premium users.

    Hi guys, I have a suggestion. Can you make an option so that every other donation I receive goes to a different paypal?
    Example: Player donates -> Money goes to paypal one, other player donates -> It goes to paypal 2, and so fourth. I would GREATLY appreciate an option like this.
    Thank you guys ;)

    This is quite a complicated feature, which probably not a lot of people would use, so I think the chances of it being added are small.
  22. Offline


    Any ideas if this could be done? If a payment goes "failed" you should get a notification from it to your email. I guess it should be "configurable" so that you can enable it if you want? :)

    This is something im going to be improving, i've realised its a pain for larger servers.
  24. Offline


    I understand the reason for disabling new features for lifetime premium accounts.. But to be honest, we were there in the first stages of Buycrafts release; we helped fund your early development of this plugin. We should have the right to use every feature.
  25. Offline


    I'd switch from lifetime to per 3 months because I needed an feature that I couldn't use anymore..
  26. Offline


    Sorry however I can't discuss financial aspects of the service on this forum because it is breaking the rules. I'd be happy to talk over our support channel.
  27. Offline


    That's understandable. Is there an IRC support channel of some sort?

    Hey, me and my friend are paying for a server, and it's not fair for me to only get the money. Can I add 2 paypals on buycraft and have the money split to each one. Thanks a lot! If not, then can you add this? Thanks!
  29. Offline


    This is not possible with Buycraft, sorry. I recommend just paying the bills from one account (yours probably) and let your friend pay half of what's left when you subtract the donations.

    Any updates on Paypal subscriptions or email reminders for expiring packages lmc?
  31. Offline


    Just to take part into this "Lifetime package". I see no problems paying the subscription even tought i paid 15£ for the lifetime 5 months back. The "free" service is a part of our server's now so there is no way i could just "Delete it". They are just doing it cause of the hosting bills of this free service. (I think?) And 15$/3 months isnt that bad... And if you cant deal with that amount of money then stay in the lifetime version? My profile picture really shows my reaction when i readed buycraft's twitter feed.
