[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.
    Have a feature suggestion? Post it below!

  2. not sure if anything of the sorts has been mentioned before (too lazy to look through other pages) anychance of like webstore wordpress integration? somehow

    also i've got to say @lmc your one of the best developers around even though your away or something you still manage to reply to so many questions and you always provide great support even for a small plugin (which is so much easier on my staff)

    just an idea, ever thought of a ingame buycraft like for iConomy, i have a system where if you pay 10,000 coins you get a permission for creating a chestshop but thats kind of a drag to do manually

    thanks ever so much

    thanks great heelp :)
  4. Someone has actually requested a word press plugin. I looked into it and then got side-tracked on something else to do with the plugin. The next update of the plugin will all you to create HTML buttons (Just like you would with paypal donate buttons) what you can put on your website and the users can click from there. Thanks for the support too!

    Do you mean like, invoices?

    Ah yea, good idea actually... possibility to add a custom disclaimer before package purchase? :)!

  5. @lmc wow jesus replied to already, see amazing support 24/7

    just came to me as an idea, any chance of a donation meter aswell? because i see loads for wordpress sites but obviously they wouldn't include buycraft donations automatically

    @lmc well on my server we send people who donate a disclaimer with terms and conditions saying that they are still eligible to be banned by rule breaking etc and thanking them for donation

  6. Haha, im lighting fast :)

    Donation meter has also been requested, and it will come eventually when I get around to it. At the moment im spending alot of time optimizing due to the high server rise at the moment.
  7. @lmc to-do list in OP?

    and possible to make the changelogs in OP to spoilers
  8. Ill get round to it. Currenlty down and dirty in coding, so ill type one up for you.
  9. @lmc anyone whos subscribed to this thread is gonna want to kill me but...

    any chance of custom receipt email ability on buycraft donations?

    @lmc sounds good to me, we've literally used one and a half pages on a little convo

    i think my suggestions should earn me premium, i kid :p

  10. -swifty eyes-

    But yea, thanks for the suggestions and if you have any more, suggest em in ere or send me a PM! :)
  11. @lmc i see that it logs who bought what package, any chance of package inheritance and a ability to upgrade to a package with the system knowing what package your already on and working out the difference?

    @lmc ALL OF THEM!!! i know i suggested alot of things only a few hours ago but im wondering when they will be out so i can sort out my website for that time frame, sorry for asking i know it takes time for alot of the things i said and others said

    nice to-do list :p

  12. Ive thought of it... however it makes things very complicated and involves alot of work to intergrate..

    @lmc I think you have missed my post.
    You advise to have a second Paypal account for Minecraft, but I discovered something. I wanted to test this and I needed to have a second Paypal account. I read the terms of agreement and it stated that you are only allowed to have one account, except if you have explicit permission from them. So I think it's illegal to have a second account for Buycraft? Or is there a way around this?
  14. It isnt illegal to have two accounts I dont think, just not on the same credit card bank/account.

    I meen, that statement I made was a very long time ago. You dont really need to accounts now, you will be fine with one.

    Would it be possible to add a free claim package command so users with the permission could check if the packages work?

    i.e : I want to sell a status but the command seems messy and doesn't work sometime. I don't want to get someone to buy the package to see if it work. A command would be great!
  16. This is coming up for defo, just cant deside what permission plugin to use....... I hate this desision
  17. I wont be doing all of them.. thats for sure..

    Tommorrow I will release the foundations of a new entire system in use. And then from then on, In order, I will work on HTML button creation, and then the test package command. Then my friday night will involve frashing out Battlefield 3 on three 27" 1080p monitors for 8+ hours along with drinking too much energy drinks.

    Just to let you know 2.9 is bugged. When you do /buy it gets a 403 error in the console and returns an error

  19. Try that again.. cause its working fine for myself. Also, regenerate your secret key, you just exposed it.

    I am not sure if you also thought about this, adding more than 1 server. I co-own a server that has 2 servers, a main for survival and another for a RPG. Also I can't wait for your updates on BuyCraft.

    About that suggestion, it should be for premium accounts since well it should be a feature.

    I think you should at least support the default Bukkit permissions. You could also just have permissions set up in your plugins config, but that would be annoying if you have a very complicated Staff-system

    Just use the same secret key for both servers, the one player logs in first, he will redeem the package.

    Ye, make it work directly with superperms. Then it will work with bpermissions, permissionsbukkit, and every perm system that uses bukkit thing. Maybe it wont work with PEX, but that was the developer choice.

    It causes difficulties and it shares packages I do not want on the servers.

    If it can't be added, I guess I will re-sign up and pay for premium.
  24. Ok guys on phone so can't reply to questions as it takes too long. Need to decide what permissions Plugin to use so please say what one you want and the most popular one when I wake up in the morning I will use.

    Can I use decimals in the "Expiry time"?
    Like 0.01 for a hour?

    I believe you can, just make a test command for free.

    Really, I have been using only Permissions 2.x, 3.x and PEX and they are way better than bPermissions. Including the chat support.

    PEX support would be great.

    Current features

    1. Bukkit Permissions (SuperPerms) compatible.
    From the PEX thread.
