    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.

    I know this isn't related to buycraft but it's related to paypal, how do I change my selling preferences on paypal to be digital goods and not actual postal goods? I had a user chargeback and the dispute wants be to give postal details, but for minecraft you don't post items!

    This requires a business account

    Does Buycraft not mark them as donations though? Marking them as a purchase on PayPal is just begging for trouble when a malicious user wants to make trouble.

    I have a business account. Paypal thinks I'm selling actual physical items, not digital items. Anyone know how to change my selling preferences to digital items so I can actually deal with disputes.

    You cannot mark them as donations, in most cases, without a valid charity, you cannot legally accept donations in a scale as of most minecraft servers do.

    EDIT: I re-read your post, sorry about that. I advise sending screenshots of the payments overview to deal with disputes.

    I think people are forgetting that if you use Paypal, you need to deal with disputes, you cannot avoid them. Even when using a credit card merchant, chargebacks are still something you have to worry about. You should be lucky you do not have to pay to resolve chargebacks with Paypal, I have dealt with companies that charge you over 20 dollars if a chargeback occurs.

    The thing is I cannot send screenshots as it asks me for a tracking ID for the postage and wont allow me not to enter it.

    Let me have a think about this, it is a difficult situation to handle due to not everyone has a business account.

    Plugin Version 4.4
    • Added the "/buycraft secret" command to set your secret key when in game/console
    • Commands will now show a message if the plugin is not enabled successfully, instead of displaying nothing
    • Admin commands are now shown via /buycraft if the user is OP/console/or has the "buycraft.admin" permission

    I am aware, going to be changing asap. Thanks for pointing this out.

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Hey, Sorry for repost:

    Hey, We offer quite a few ranks on our server.

    People purchase a rank, and its setup to go away after one month.
    However we have the ability for them to pay $5 and keep there rank for another month.

    Can you implement this into Buycraft, so we don't manually have to upgrade them again.
    Also, once they upgrade we have to manually downgrade them after the month is over again, because they are out of the system.

    Please add this, Thanks.

    We allow you to sell expiring packages.

    Yes i know.

    When someone purchases a rank for 1 month, and at the end he wants to get it for another month, and his package costs $100, What does he do? Pay $100 again.

    We need a "Renew" feature.
    So he can pay $5/10 and keep his rank for another month automatically.
    Thats what i said in the previous post too.

    We need a feature so they can extend there time period for another month without paying the full $100 etc again, but a simple "Renew" fee. Do you get what i mean?

    Ok, so I've noticed that at certain times I cannot even get on my server dashboard because it never loads. It says "Waiting for ads.adbrite.com..." at the bottom. I'm assuming this means you use AdBrite and their server is down or real slow, which is causing your pages to not load. I've been waiting a full 2 minutes to load the dashboard, and every other website loads fine. Does anyone else have this issue?

    I assume it could be fixed by not using AdBrite. Actually, if you Google "AdBrite slow" it seems a LOT of people experience their sites slowing down while using AdBrite. Maybe you should use something else...

    EDIT: It is most certainly the AdBrite ads. I am now using AdBlock Plus for Chrome, which prevents the ads from loading and the page loads fine. I really do not like using those tools, because I believe the page author deserves the money from the advertisements. This is certainly still a problem, you should contact AdBrite, because your pages do not load (even after several MINUTES) because of them.

    Can I make a recommendation? Store Credit. That would be awesome for those that would like to purchase it or earn it in game.

    Hey guys, just went through my 3rd dispute with Paypal regarding minecraft packages and finally called paypal. Apparently paypal does not ensure virtual items so for all of you that are having problem with disputes call paypal and have a talk with them and you will win every single dispute!

    They determine if its a virtual item by seeing if any shipping information was exchanged between the buyer and seller and if it wasn't, which none should have been sent because its a virtual item, you will AUTO-WIN the dispute.

    Just thought I'd let everyone know. Good Luck have fun guys :D
