    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.

    Hey. Love working with Buycraft, everything is so easy. One suggestion I was wondering about though, was an option to limit a customer to select a variable for a set amount of times (ie. limit a player to purchasing a node as a variable only once). They would need to be able to still select other variables, but not any that they've already purchased. Thanks!

    We're currently working on moving over to UUIDs, and everything will be the same in terms of how the user enters their username on the webstore. The only difference will be that the actual plugin will use UUIDs when contacting the website instead of usernames.

    Thanks for the compliments, are you basically asking for an option to only allow the user to select a variable once every x hours/days/minutes?

    Is this still occurring? Possible a one off issue.

    Thank you!

    We're working on support that character set soon, it's a fair amount of work as we have to move everything over to UTF8.

    Some feedback that i've received from the player base on my server (mythicgaming) ALOT of our players are not based in the US and have been commenting that they can not donate to our server through buycraft because either it does not allow them to, or because their country makes it hard to use paypal. A quick suggestion that I believe would be greatly appreciated, would be to add multiple methods of payment that can be transferrable into cash for our server. for example, If player "A" wanted to donate $10 in bitcoin, your site/plugin would allow them to do so, you (the makes of buycraft) would get the $10 in bitcoin and give us (the server) $10 to put into our paypal. This way servers can still get donations through any means possible, and the developers of buycraft can make a little money too.. maybe add a small fee for this? like a %0.5 payment of what ever the donation is. this way, everyone can donate, and be happy and you guys can make even more $.. I think it's a win win really. just a thought :)

    I don't see the 500 error in the console, but nothing is shown (Checking the user's recent payments). Is a problem of my side?
  6. Offline


    This is possible, although not in the free plan. If you use the 4.99/mo plan (in GBP, not USD, I just don't have the symbol for it on my PC), you can add more payment options besides just PayPal.

    I realize now how poorly worded that was. Basically, I meant have the option to set a "limit per customer" value for individual variables. The specific concern in this case, a player can donate for a cheap rank that gives them a permission node for a kit (example). If there are multiple kits available, they have the ability to select the same variable for the same node. I'm afraid that players might complain if they accidentally choose to purchase the same kit multiple times.

    I got a idea. So lats say you got server 1 and when people donate it sends the commands out. But later on you make Server 2 and you will like to send the commands out to that server from all your donors who donated. Please tell me what you think of this because I am in a issue where I cant make it give people who already donated before the 2nd server get the perks.

    I am confused about how I am to receive the money. Someone has donated on my server and I received a confirmation email but no setup or instructions to tell the money where to go. I have re gone through the start up instructions but have failed to find any section about where the money goes. If you could get back to me soon that would be nice.
    Thank you

    I feel like you guys should make the buycraft GUI, online be able to use Id's with colons, like for my server, I have a spawn egg shop, and all I can make the in game items are the default 383 egg instead of the custom one like 383:90 (pig), it's very frustrating, having everything be the same items.

    This has been fixed in Buycraft 6.7 which we are just waiting for Bukkit to approve for us. We'll let you know on twitter when you can get hold of it.

    We have this on our list of items to look into don't worry.

    Not sure this will be possible though I will run it past lmc.

    What you will need to do is set up a gateway. On our main website if you go to "Help & Community" there's a section all about Gateways, which ones you can use and how you would set them up.

    No ability to import payments yet? :(

    lmc I have been thinking about getting a buycraft premium account and the only thing I am worried about though is that it doesn't have nice integration back to your website. What I mean is a player clicks the shop link but there is no link to get back. I think you should add the option to have a link on the logo/title. You should also add support for credit cards but I have heard that's hard to do. Please do it if you can :)

    It depends on where you want to import them from?

    The file generated by the export feature.

    On the packages page, I suggest adding a check box for each package, with an option to remove, disable, enable, or any other options you can think of, all selected packages.

    Premium just ran out on my shop and disabled most of my packages. Now after I sent you more money, I have to spend an hour enabling them all? Thanks.

    Ah I mean what website, because all of them export different set's of data so we'd need to have a separate import for each one.

    On the paid plans there is an option at the top of the content page to enable all of the packages.
  20. Offline


    Yeah that's great, but it doesn't help if you actually have a lot of packages that you had disabled and want to keep disabled. Buycraft should revert the packages to how they previously were, or the shop should just get disabled when the free plan kicks in until enough packages are disabled. A repaying customer shouldn't have to do anything to fix their shop except pay.

    i dont CARE how many of you people hate me for saying this. This plugin was the DEATH of minecraft multiplayer people ALWAYS use it as a popularity contest like if you didn't donate you weren't COOL or GOOD ENOUGH and to make matters worse it CORRUPTS server owners and staff all they want is for more people to donate take for example my expirence with a server i wont name at first it seems normal but then one day i said hey guys i own a server never mentioned the ip temp ban after the temp ban i found out that the owner thought i was advirtising so i shrugged it off but it wasnt just that turns out he doesnt want players playing on any other servers period he thinks it takes away buisness to him the servers not a community its a BUISNESS they dont even use the money they get to help the server most of them just use it to buy stuff for themselves we donate that hard earned money to keep the server RUNNING not so you can go A SHOPPINGSPREE but back to the story later i heard stories about the owner of the server asking players to donate and if they dont he BANHAMMERS them im not so sure if its true but i wouldnt put anything past him then he starts banning anybody even mentioning they own a server we all just kept our mouths shut i rember living in fear of him and his staff but that was my favorite server i didnt want to leave but one day i had enough and i havent enjoyed a server since. I say let our pain be gone eventually no one will play minecraft because of this damn this plugin to the farthest reaches of oblivion damn it all

    So you would like to export then import the same file? Could we get a scenario for the use of this?

    I see what you mean, I will chat to lmc about a way of improving this for customers.

    Before too much, sorry for my bad english.
    PagSeguro is the payment method most used and common in Brasil.
    Is it possible to add PagSeguro at the payment methods?

  25. Offline


    We already support this gateway through our Paymentwall option.

    Just curious, but how is the new 1.7.10 enforced EULA going to affect you and your plugin?
    Not that the EULA hasn't been like this before (meaning it's against the law to earn money from Minecraft) but come server version 1.7.10 you will no longer be able to run a Minecraft server without accepting the EULA and your plugin directly violates this new force-acceptance on the EULA. Are you prepared to face possible legal charges from Mojang and possible any of the servers currently running your plugin? What do you plan on doing with the development of this plugin?

    First of all it is not a new EULA, and it has not been enforced. You are confusing a leaked conversation by a lower level mojang employee and anything official.

    I didn't say it was a new EULA, I specifically said "Not that the EULA hasn't been like this before" which was a direct reference that they didn't change it. Also, it has been enforced. If you look at the command prompt for launching the 1.7.10 server snapshots, it says exactly this:
    $ java -jar minecraftserver.1.7.10-pre2.jar
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/INFO]: Starting minecraft server version 1.7.10-pre2
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/WARN]: To start the server with more ram, launch it as "java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/INFO]: Loading properties
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/WARN]: Failed to load eula.txt
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/INFO]: You need to agree to the EULA in order to run the server. Go to eula.txt for more info.
    [13:11:37] [Server thread/INFO]: Stopping server
    $ cat eula.txt
    By changing the setting below to TRUE you are indicating your agreement to our EULA (https://account.mojang.com/documents/minecraft_eula).
    It is a NEW enforcement of the OLD EULA and I'm curious what Buycraft is going to do about it.

    If they added a message like that it is just to cover themselves legally later, a new startup message != to enforcement.

    Is there any way to limit the amount of coupons used at checkout, or set a coupon to not allow other coupons to be added? I want to create a few coupons each week and post the codes for all my players to see, however, since there are no limitations, 1 player could just use all of the coupons.

    The new EULA isn't going to shut us down, or make us illegal. We're in the clear with Mojang and the upcoming EULA is looking to still allow certain things to be sold (such as cosmetic items).
