    I currently manage a bukkit server for me and my friends but we are looking at going public with it and I wanted to implement a donation system where they can donate x amount per month for a certain permissions group. However I've been looking around at how I can do this and was wondering if the bukkit community has any suggestions (seeing as I will be running bukkit). I would also be wanting to integrate into a SMF (Simple Machines Forum) forum where they also get a forum rank.

    First I considered using the SMF paid subscriptions option but as yet I don't know of anyone being able to link that up with a minecraft server. So I would have to ask them to open a ticket in the forum helpdesk to redeem there in game rank and money.

    Then I looked at BuyCraft, but I would have to get the premium package however this won't link into SMF for forum ranks. (I'm not sure if it links with any forum)

    Finally I considered coding my own payment site which would use PayPal's IPN (Instant Payment Notification) which I have seen some custom Permissions PHP scripts which could be used or I could use WebSend. However this would take time and I'm not sure if I could make it so if they cancelled there payment they would be put back in the default permission group.

    I am using PermissionsBukkit as my ermissions plugin.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to better donation systems or to correct any of my understanding to what I have said above?

    I'm on the same boat.... PayPal's IPN is what I've considered along with WebSend. It seems quite difficult this way. I was going to use Buycraft but discovered that does not work with multiple servers.. ARG!
