    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.

    The members of my server are complaining that they don't have their preferred payment options available.

    Is it possible to add support for iDEAL and paysafe?

    Lookup seems cool, but referring to my previous suggestion, it would be nice to have a way to lookup emails but better yet a way to have a list of emails with the amount of transactions associated with them. Most people that are fraudulent won't just buy stuff for themselves, but they'll buy just about every person on the server a rank, for large servers it's hard to recognize this sort of behavior and it's just simply hard to tell. Looking up a single username only tells a portion of the story where as an email tells all of it.

    These are already supported through Paymentwall if I'm not mistaken.

    Can you add possibility to add a file upload to add permissions using file? Because enter 30 permissions its very long in buycraft panel....

    And why i need to pay more for remove branding? Why you not add this with premium version?

    Yes but a lot of people, like me can't use paymentwall :( I dont have all documents...So add it separatly it can be awesome :)

    Paysafecard has even stricter registration requirements, such as having to be a registered business. If you can't use Paymentwall then I highly doubt you'll be able to use Paysafecard I'm afraid.

    Hey LMC,

    Thanks for all the hard work.

    I wanted to ask, is there a Buycraft API for creating coupons? Reason for this is because I want to integrate randomly generated Buycraft coupons that expire on redeem as a reward for whatever (voting, lottery etc) from my own plugins.

    I think this would be an awesome feature to have and if you could add this in the long run I would greatly appreciate it ;)

    Thanks!

    Is there a way to link buycraft to a 100% vanilla server (no bukkit)
    because if not, I would like to see that added.

    maybe through mcMyadmin or something similar

    I Just wanted to take a moment to say I highly discourage any members from paying for premium account services for this plugin. I bought a Premium Account on their old Premium Model where you pay once and you get premium for life on January 29th, 2012. The receipts from paypal for which are linked below as proof (I emailed the same exact .xps documents to BuyCraft's support email). I received one payment through their service, the email they sent me detailing such is also linked below. I actively had the plugin linked up with a server i ran for ~4-6 months following such during the early months of 2012, before no longer actively using my account. I logged into said account periodically just to look at buycraft's new features and to see if it fit what I needed for other setups where i considered taking donations in relation to minecraft. Sometime between June 2012 and July 2013, BuyCraft switched to their new (and current) Premium Model where you pay monthly for one of two tiers of additional features. I knew of this shortly after it happened, as I had logged in to the service to my old account and saw little notification boxes all over the page letting me know BuyCraft had a new premium model and tried to tell me I should buy it instead, but these same notifications all over my BuyCraft panel pages ALSO told me my account was grandfathered in. Since I wasn't still actively using BuyCraft, I declined to upgrade to the new system, because I was fine with the features I was grandfathered into. I attempted to log back in once again in July of 2013, to find my login details were incorrect? I accepted that maybe I had used one of my other 3-4 actively used email accounts or passwords, so i tried multiple combinations. I have one password that is relatively short I use for most online service I don't *extremely* care about the security of, that I *THINK* worked on buycraft. When that password doesn't work, up until 2011 I used another password that was greater than 10 characters, contained a random assortment of numbers, lower and upper case letters, and special characters most websites accepted. In 2011 I switched to a newer variation of the same style randomized password I use to this day. I have only ever had two website that didn't either accept the short unsecure password or the longer secured password, and that is verizonwireless. The second is all of my .gov websites I access on a normal basis. They usually require 16+ characters, at least 3 uppercase, 3 lowercase, 3 special characters, and 3 numbers, and need to be changed every ~6 months. And they track your last 10 or so passwords, to not be used again until you've had 10 newer passwords. Government is paranoid right? ;) Anyways, I tried all 4 of my email accounts I use to register at websites with, and all three of the above mentioned passwords. None worked. I figured I was still just being an idiot, and i was at fault. So I emailed support@buycraft.net and i provided the above-mentioned three documents for them. And so begins a 2-month long back-and-forth with BuyCraft's "Support" department. What happened in this back and forth? I got told they couldn't find the login details for the account paypal said I purchased with the email paypal said I purchased it with. They couldn't find the records of the donation I received through their service that I had an email FROM THEM stating existed. They asked for my IP address stating my IP might help them find the account, and said they couldn't help me once I told them I was in the military and had moved multiple times for the military, and multiple times as a civilian before I joined the military since I signed up for their service, so I likely had more than 10 new IP addresses since I purchased. Ok so I ask for a refund, reasonable right? A refund of 3.5 GBP (~$5 and some change). I get ignored and no replies to my emails or a refund since. This was in August 2013.



    So what's the point of my story? Don't give BuyCraft your money. They could accidentally delete your entire profile and not find any record of it having ever existed, and tell you thats too bad and to go away.

    The emails, in case anyone is curious.

    This seems to be a big misunderstanding and I'm very sorry for the support that you received. We wouldn't of deliberately ignored you and It looks to be a one-off situation where an email went missing. We respond to hundreds of emails a day and do our best to provide the best support we can. The reason that we couldn't get your account back was because of the lack of proof provided on your behalf, if you can email us I'd be happy to refund your original transaction and compensate you with some free Premium.

    It would be cool if there was a way to add how much they donated, similar to how the {name} works perhaps {amount} ??? So I could make a command that broadcasted: Thanks {name} For Donating {amount}

    Already possible, click the "Help" button on the package commands and scroll to the bottom to find a list of available variables. :)

    Any ETA on when the "Add to cart" popup website integration will work again?
    I tried to send you an e-mail, but didn't receive any answer. So now i'm trying to contact you here.

    Im not sure as to why it isnt working for you, because we haven't changed anything on our end. I can say though that we're deprecating the feature because of the way it works (It's not exactly great..) and will be releasing something better in the upcoming weeks.

    The problem i'm having, is that i can't get the css and js file. It just says 404 when trying.

    But i guess, if you're deprecating the feature, and planning on something new/better, i'll just be waiting for that :)

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before in the 262 pages, but can BuyCraft please please please have different date formats in its web interface rather than the UK type?

    Should be a simple enough change.
     
  17. @lmc Hello,
    I enjoy Buycraft, and it is a great plugin. I recommend it for everyone. Buying premium is worth EVERY cent.
    I was wondering how I can make my webstore like this? I have googled it and all I have found is that if I add images, it makes the store look this it, but it hasn't for me..

    Do you mean the package images? Just edit a package and there will be an image-option on the bottom left. Make sure to enable package images in your categories though.
     
  19. Yes! Thanks a lot!

    Is there a reason why we can't look up Paypal transaction IDs with BuyCraft?

    Hey lmc,

    Will Buycraft ever come out with an application for xenforo to link rank purchases with xenforo?
     
  25. Just use website integration on a new page in XenForo...

    I don't know, but as it is now you should probably use an iframe.

    You can, just select "Transaction ID" in the payment search dropdown.

    I'm talking about syncing purchases from buycraft with the xenforo permission system..
     
  29. davidxd33 Oh.. Can you even do that with any web server?

    Hello,

    Would it be possible to add payments (and statistics) sorting by Category (including their subcategories) or by Server ?

    I have multiple servers on my buycraft account and I'm sharing income on some of them and the current sorting options makes it a bit hard to count all the payments to a specific server.

    Thanks for considering.

    Regards

    Maybe add breakers? That way instead of having different sub-categories we can just have a breaker separating sub-categories.
