[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.

    lmc, I would appreciate if you could make it so you can add more Categories to the top bar on the webstore before they all go into "Package Categories". I'd like them all the show up on top. Just a thought - thanks!
  4. This isnt really an easy thing to do because of lower screen resolutions and the layout of the website.
  5. ''Really nice bro''...since my server is spanish and 90% of the spanish minecraft players play in pirate servers, my original server have just a few players, and is really hard find ones that pay for VIP, we were surviving getting at least enought money for pay our dedicated server, and now the only thing that let us survive, ask us to pay them per month?...i cant belive it, i could pay again more for another permanent buycraft premium, but we cant afford for pay every month, with this im gonna be forced to close my server, man, why?...then the bukkit members ask why ppl have pirate servers, while i try to have an original server but seems like i cant cause of this

    If you already had a lifetime subscription, you're not forced to change that.
  7. ''This account has Premium membership, and it will expire on November 29th, 2012.''

    Seems like im forced to pay per month, and im not able to do that, this text is show in my Buycraft after logging, i has a lifetime subscription, also i has it since one year ago...
  8. Did you click on the link in the email we sent not long ago?
  9. No i havent, i just went into ''Settings>Account'' and the message was there

    So how i can be sure that im not gonna lose my lifetime account the 29 of this month?

    When did the pay monthly affect come into play as I'm sure mine was life time then all of a sudden I have to pay every three months? I ordered mine in June.
  11. It hasnt been lifetime for over 6 months. We used to be lifetime however changed long long ago. All this was on the purchase page.

    Hi, i accidentally click the monthly subscription and i did not actually generate much from buycraft and i want my life time back is it possible? E-mail: [email protected]

    Is there a way or a package for members to donate any amount they choose without a reward?

    The reason is my packages are ranks with in-game perks, and donations add up towards the next rank.

    Could you please add so i can blacklist player names from buying a package of my choice.
  15. Ya, but i bought mine one year ago or more, also here a proof that my account was lifetime

    This email is about your lifetime subscription to Buycraft. When I first developed Buycraft, I did not expect the overwhelming popularity it would gain in the Minecraft community. With my little experience with business models, I decided that a lifetime subscription would fund the amount Buycraft needed. As time has passed, I have increased the amount of monthly costs to make sure Buycraft has fantastic uptime and reliability to make sure your donations are not effected. Over the last 1.5 years, I have personally put hours on hours of work into the website, something that has been difficult during education. You may be wondering what this message is about, and it is simply to ask one thing. If Buycraft has generated you a good amount of money for your Minecraft server, I would appreciate it if you could end your lifetime membership and move onto a subscription by clicking this link - your premium will expire 1 week later. If you have not generated that much from Buycraft, feel free to keep the lifetime, I want to help as much as I can. Thank you for sticking with Buycraft, I value your support.
    And like i sayd, i havent clicked any link, i just logged into my Buycraft account, went into Settings and then into Account and the message was there, i cant afford to pay every 3 months, i get from VIP always a little less of the cost for my dedicated server..

    I want this so bad, I have the three day trial going, but just simply don't have the money to buy premium. I have over 10 donation packages (I have two seperate world, kit pvp and factions) but I can't have even half of my ranks set up for everyone. However, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone who has some extra cash to spend!
  17. I'll be releasing multiple servers per packages soon, sorry for the delay...
  18. lmc i sent u the mail of my buycraft account, i need u to confirm that my account still have lifetime, also if not, fix that, i repeat, i havent clicked any link

    First of all, i'm really enjoying your plugin and you're doing a great job. I'll be willing to switch back on a non-lifetime account in maybe 1 months or so since that wasn't on my budget for this month but can you tell me if the cost of the account is each month or more like every 3 or 6 months?

    I have some others questions :

    1. I'd like to know if there's any plan to be able to translate the webshop, i'd translate it to french.
    2. Do you have any ETA on the system where my users would see when their package is expiring? (Only an estimated date)

    Today I just received an email requesting me to switch over to Premium, QUOTE:

    No offense but asking for this is, in my opinion of course, highly un-professional. If you are stating something as a "This account has Premium membership, and is on a lifetime subscription (Non expiring)." Then therefor you should not request the particular account to go subscription based. I understand where you are coming from, but according to your site you have "38,861 servers registered... selling 94,121 packages... which have been sold 223,566 times..." & now your asking for one more. Come on now, is that not a little greed. Not sure about how other accouter feel but I have been a dedicated plugin holder since nearly day one, which in fact have pushed for other server owners to use your amazing creation! I feel that my opinions may be ranting off a bit, so I shall stop here. However, by all means if your going to change my status do what you feel it is necessary but it will be un-willingly & un-professional! Not to mention I personally barely have any transactions going on.

    not sure if this has been suggested..

    i run 4 servers, when your donation total reaches a certain limit you get different donor ranks across all 4 servers.

    would it be possible to make it so donations can be recorded in a central local database, and have buycraft check totals.

    for cumulative donation ranks.
    player donates 6.00 he gets a donor rank package
    player donates 50.00 he gets a donorSponsor rank package promotion
    if the player then donates another 6.00 he gets reset to the lower rank.
    i would like a way to check cumulative donations so that doesn't happen.

    say, have separate classes, in the webstore you could have the packages, these packages wouldn't set ranks
    rank setting could be done by a separate routine that checks cumulative donations, and when the player hits certain levels the rank changes.

    wait, i'm a bit tired, let me clarify

    player buys a package, that packages commands are run.
    the system then checks the players lifetime donation list, when certain preconfigured levels are reached, another set of commands is run.

    i love your service, i would gladly change to a 3 months sub from my current lifetime, but i seem to have overlooked the email where you asked us to do so.

    can you give me the instructions?
    is it simply buying a new sub?

    Hey! I am really new to buycraft, and I just made my bukkit account to ask this question. I got a BeastNode server set up, and I got the promo code, but I can't figure out where I should enter the promo code to get my free premium! I know it's an incredibly noob-ish question, but I can not find the promo code box, so if anyone can help I will be forever grateful!

    Sorry guys! I figure it out! I have an epic friend who helped me! :D

    I'm glad you were able to figure it out. If you need any additional assistance feel free to contact us again!

    Yes, you can just purchase a 3 month subscription of Buycraft, this will reset you to 3 month subscription payments.

  24. Is it possible to send donations with mobilephones?
  25. Yes, use the payment gateway OneBip.
  26. I want to buy a premium account with PayPal but I cant donate without saving the bank-connection... and I wont save that.

    Is it possible to get the list of who donated? (For example, JSON feed would be nice, or a XML feed)

    I think it would be really helpful to many server owners if you could possibly post the plugin to BukkitDev. I know it would be helpful to me. I run a server that uses the RSS feeds on BukkitDev to auto update the plugins that my server runs. This is one of the few that are not on BukkitDev.

    Other than that great plugin and it is extremely useful. The players like it allot because it makes donations simple AND easy for me! Keep up the great work!

    I have received your email, and yes I clicked on the link for more information. For me, it was just to make a donation. But instead it is to renew his account with an excellent price more expensive than starting.
    I am French, I am within my rights to not understand a message, and click a link, but in any case, it is not because I click a link that has a form legally correct, to change the account option. I just wanted to learn more about this system by clicking on the link and not by activating an option.

    I would therefore find my lifetime account is this: [email protected]

    Thank you in advance before November 27th!

    Would be great to add some search functions inside the payments overview page. We have over 15 pages of payments so sorting through them and looking for players to adjust things is really annoying :/

    The plugin is actually on bukkitdev, just do a search for buycraft.
