[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.

    Would there be any way you could implement a type of receipt management? I to often get chargebacks from players who have left the server from months ago and am unable to dispute these with PayPal without any proper proof that the payment has been completed. Perhaps a type of electronic signature sent between the server and the website.

    I wanted to know if there was a way to get a certain package, there are a few in-game requirements such as:
    1. They are in survival world (item packages don't get wasted)
    2. They have enough room in-game to hold the all the items (so the whole item-package can be recieved)
  4. That store dosent exist, verify that your typing it correctly and also have selected the correct options in the webstore settings.

    I understand your request, however PayPal will still side with the customer even if proof if given. When they ask for proof they mean tracking numbers for postage, which with digital items isn't possible. It's very difficult to win a PayPal chargeback in any circumstance.

    Thank you!

    Hey lmc,

    A player of mine won a competition so I gave him a coupon for 20$ off. He wanted to buy an item for 20$ but when he tried to check out it said: "price needs to be higher than 0$".

    Can you make a way for people to make a coupon code with the value of 1 package or make it so that the purchase skips the payment process when the basket is 0.00$. That way you can gift prizes to players. Thanks!

  12. Aha, no worries.
  13. This is something I might be doing. Instead I might make the price 0.01 and have it go through the gateway instead.

    I was testing buycraft on my hamachi server before i got a rented server and i now want to change round the server that is on my account without having to buy premium. I cant delete server because it requires atleast one server on your account at all times and I cant add a server becuase the limit is one. Can I please get help :(

    Is there any possible way you can give/make a HTML code of the recent donators and/or all donators? Thanks - i would highly appreciate it.

    Wondering about a Developer API? Looking to hook into it for a simple little recruitment plugin that would offer discounts on Buycraft for recruiting new players.
  18. Offline


    But you can implement their API, and we have to register our business, or not?
  19. Offline


    Really need to know, where to find the API ;)

    Is it possible to use in a command {amount} to see how much they donated (For custom plugin)

  20. Our API isnt documented, however feel free to decompile the plugin source and take a look. I'll write some doc up soon.

    Sorry, that command isnt available. I could look into getting that sorted for you?

    How would I go about, having a "Top 5 Donator" list for my webstore? I have people who have donated several times and I'd like to give those players some spotlight.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Is it possible to set up a donation meter? Which can be installed on our websites? A lot of us would love that.

  23. Website modules are something in the possible works.

    Donations are a no-go, your not accepting donations, your selling products in the eyes of Paypal. Non-tangible goods are possible, but the difference it has dosent make any difference in selling, except the removal of shipping tracking ect.

    Sorry, don't know what forge is.
    Nope, its not required.
    The only issue with Bitcoin is 1, im not too experienced with the system, and 2, if i understand correctly, the bitcoin value changes to the US dollar regularly. This could be a pain keeping prices in line with what server owners want to sell packages for.

    All payments are coming in with a "print shipping label"
    This should come in as either donations or online-non-tangibles.

    Do you know how to fix incoming Buycraft payments to not have the option to print shipping labels?

    REQUEST: Bitcoin Integration

    I’m joshburt the owner and operator of http://www.thebitmines.com
    (verification: http://www.thebitmines.com/joshburt.txt)

    We accept Bitcoin as payment (and as payout too). I commented earlier about the preferred Bitcoin payment processor & API (the major vendor in this space is http://bitpay.com as far as I can tell). They offer a number of integration methods and APIs for use. On a side note I currently use them to process payments made to my company (Shape and Share LLC) made in Bitcoin and I can vouch that it works as advertised.

    My vision isn't just around a single server but as a way for players to move their progress from server to server, or to entirely different games or markets. Buycraft would be the ideal way to introduce this ability to the community as it’s an already established product with market share.

    You play for a while and accumulate some progress and then turn around and buy ranks, items, or memberships on other servers or games when you want to move on. You benefit by keeping progress in the form of Bitcoin and being able to purchase or donate to other servers/companies/causes in the future without needing a credit card. The HUGE benefit for the Minecraft community at large is the ability to make and receive payments without needing a credit card, paypal account, or even a bank account.

    Hope to see this around soon. :)

    Is their any way that this plugin can be used on current release of forge?

    Yes the value changes frequently. Some implementations I've seen to address this will allow you set a USD amount and then the back end will update checkout bitcoin prices dynamically based on current trading value.

    I've written interfaces to Mt. Gox (using their API) to pull current values with Java but I'm sure there are other ways to do it too, especially if your using an already created API. Currently I implement my own bitcoin payout system by using json-rpc to communicate with a local running bitcoin deamon instance. You can also use the APIs of the payment processors which handle a lot of this for you.

    I'll see if I can find some information about these specific questions/concerns for you.
    Thanks for listening!

    If I got buycraft premium, How would I add it to my site? I would like to ADD it to a page on my site. Not make a whole new page use the same theme I have for my site but add the webstore to it
