[ADMN/WEB] [BukkitDev] Buycraft -The most advanced Donation Plugin.

Discussion in 'Archived: Plugin Releases' started by lmc, Aug 16, 2011.

  1. [​IMG]
    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.

    Hi - You should add a feature for sales where you can make sales with buy one get one free or buy one get one half off.

    Just an idea starter, I know this would be awesome for my server, and hopefully more

    Hi, there!

    I would like to know if it is possible (and if so, how I can do it) to make a podium with the heads of the top 3 donators of my server.

    Using other words, I would like an automated system that switches player heads and signs, something like the attached picture.

    This would be shown publicly to all players and would also incentive them to donate more often. Is this do-able?

    Thank you for your time!

    Hello , I was wondering if you have any plans to add an API for Buycraft?
    It'd be very useful to me and I'm sure very useful to many others.
    Things like the ability to tie into anything Buycraft does , mainly for logging purposes to have it on my website and once they hit a certain amount of donated money my website will reward them. Things like that are what I need an API for,

  10. You can do this by setting up the signs feature. Take a look on our knowledgebase for more information on this.

    Feature Request: Ability to change names of made donations. Some people mistype it. It's also handy for cracked servers.

    I was a victim of chargeback fraud using PayPal as my gateway for over $500 from one user, and now I want to limit the amount of money a user can spend on the store. This would be a wonderful addition to users like me, that want to take a safe route. A very weird request, but I lost a lot of money and this could prevent it.


  13. Both of these are coming tomorrow.

    When someone do a payment have a option to "Buy as a gift" , after the payment send a redeem code to the buyer

  15. Due to fraud issues we probably are not going to implement this feature. If it receives more attention however we may consider it.

    Dear lmc,
    A nice idea would be to implement some shortcuts to Package descriptions too. So for example, a user can set a description:
    Things you will recieve
    - In-Game thank you message [ {name} donated {price} ]

    So as result it may be possible to add 3 shortcuts:
    {name}, {price}, {currency}
    It might be able to help alot in some cases.
    Also, you might be able to implement the following shortcuts.
    {price_packageID}: It gets the price of a specific package. As result people that have in the description something like this, ' You can later upgrade this to Package1, which cost {price_1}', so if someone updates later the price on that package, then he won't require to edit all the other descriptions.
    Also another nice idea would be implementing mathematical actions, so people can do something like
    ' You can later upgrade this Package1, to package3, which cost an additional [Math]{price_2} + {price_3}[/Math]'
    ' Buying this Package bundle will save you [Math]({price_1} + {price_2} + {price_x}) * 20 / 100 [/Math] {currency}'
    Were price 1-x were the package prices, 20 was the discount(20%).
    Please let me know what you think.
    Kind regards,

    If a player wanted to buy the package as a gift for someone, they could always just put in the other users Minecraft username when it asks for the username...

    Command variables
    {name} - The customers Minecraft username.
    {transaction} - The transaction ID of the payment.
    {price} - The amount paid.
    {currency} - The currency of the payment.
    {time} - The time of purchase, e.g. 15:30.
    {date} - The date of purchase, e.g. 01/01/2012.
    {email} - The email address of the customer.
    {ip} - The IP address of the customer.
    {packageId} - The ID of the package.
    {packagePrice} - The price of the package.
    {packageExpiry} - The expiry length of the package (days).
    {packageName} - The name of the package.
    They already have the Variables you wanted, however I do think that the Math variable thing would be very useful, and would be good if they could add something like that!

    Another thing I've seemed to notice is that, on Chrome and Safari, when a Buycraft store is first loaded the character faces in the latest donations module don't seem to load (just white space) and they only appear once you've reloaded the page buy clicking a menu item (i.e. not a browser refresh) I thought this might have just been down to the CSS, however it seems that way on a few pages.

    I think he meant he wanted to use them in the descriptions on his store.

    Oohh, right. That's a pretty cool idea actually. I still think it would be good if there was some way to use arithmetic logic in to the variables/commands though.

    Could you guys look into supporting the Dwolla payment gateway?

    I'm sick of dealing with paypal's crap.

    Was the update already released?
  22. Offline


    No it was delayed for a bit, to add some more features.
    That's a Dutch payment-gateway (local, so not useful for most people) if I'm correct, so it's probably not going to be added if Paymentwall doesn't support it.

    I see. Will it be released today?

    I don't know, but keep an eye on the Buycraft-twitter.

    I'm constantly having a problem with players buying another rank while their current one is still active and not expired. Then a week or so after they got the new one, the old expiry commands trigger causing them to get deranked early. Maybe this could be solved by cancelling the expiry commands on their previous purchase?

  26. You can enable this option in the category edit page. There is an option to do exactly this :)

    Of course.. Thanks!

    Could you guys implement paySafeCard as a payment gateway? This would be for the merchants with a contract with paySafeCard. I know that Paymentwall already offers that for everyone but their fees are very high compared to the fees with a direct contract.

    Before it has been said that because so few people would be able to use it, it would not be worth it.

    I have 4 Buycraft accounts each under their own email address, would it be possible to link them up so how? It gets annoying having to login each one to view their statistics and such and would be much easier doing it all from a single account.

    Why are you using 4 accounts? Buycraft already supports having multiple servers on one account.
