    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.

    Feature suggestions:

    - Pie Charts on the Statistics page: Have a toggle to view them by dollar amounts instead. For example "popular packages" can be a bit misleading, say Package A is $5 and you have 10 orders, and Package B is $100 and you have 2 orders, Package A would appear to be significantly more popular than Package B when in reality Package B is better. Add same dollar toggle to all graphs.

    - Variables: On the payment receipts sent to the admin's email, the customer's variable selection should also be shown if applicable.

    - Also, I'm not sure what's going on with the timestamps but on my Recent Donations module I often notice there will be a constant "Today," ex. I'll get a donation at 23:00 Today, and then a couple hours later a new donation will be at 1:00 Today, which doesn't make sense.

    I found out that a 1.7.4 build for spigot might not come out, and 1.7.2 might be the latest. So on my now (again) whitelisted server I have Spigot and 0 plugins (until Buycraft updates) then have Buycraft as the ONLY plugin.

    Could you add the payment gateway iDEAL it's very popular in the Netherlands, it looks like paypal but its saver, and link to a bank account. The service is only available in the Netherlands, but the source code is available for every one. Mojang has this payment gateway too!

    or could you add that you can upload your own payment getaway or plugins?

    I'm pretty sure iDeal is supported through Paymentwall.

    I need this very soon!!!!
    - So I can set: Cumulate the package purchases inside of this category.

    To: Cumulate the package purchases inside of this Server

    OR You could fix it so PARENT CATEGORIES have that option and it applies to all sub categories.

    As a work-around, you could use the 'required packages' option, and create a rank ladder that way.

    Feature requests:
    • The ability to disable the option to use coupons on a package (maybe this is already implemented and I'm missing it?).
    • When entering a custom amount to donate it shouldn't allow an amount to be entered that's greater than the spending limit defined in the payment settings.

    I like that except in the 'Required Packages' option I can not select NO PACKAGE. For example somebody who has not bought anything could select that rank.

    jorisk322

    Then you just don't set that option for those packages.

    lol I don't think you understand.
    I have a list of ranks = Donor($10), MVP($20), VIP($30), VIP+($40) and ELITE($50).
    They are all in the same category 'RANKS'

    I want the prices to cumulate the package purchase history inside of this category. But I also want other players to be able to buy a rank.
    For example if John123 Buys VIP He can not Buy VIP+ But He can Buy ELITE for 20$ BECAUSE he already donated. I CAN DO THIS WITH PACKAGES REQUIRED but If a new players tries buys ELITE BECAUSE OF THE REQUIRED PACKAGES They are not allowed to buy it because they have not bought either MVP or VIP.

    In other words I don't want players to be able to buy the 10$ rank above them but a 20$ rank so it does not give them excessive powers.
    In the end to solve this all you have to do is in the REQUIRED PACKAGES put the option of a player who has not bought anything within the category, so maybe a 'No Package' Option. This would make life so much easier.

    THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE MY SERVER HAS 20 SEPARATE RANKS SO DONT SUGGEST ME TO MAKE RANK UPGRADES IN A SEPARATE CATEGORY.

    We already have the 10 recent donators on in game signs. Read the readme.txt file.


    1. Not yet available.
    2. The user wont be able to purchase because we calculate the max amount when they click the checkout button.

    I got some suggestions:
    • When you aren't premium yet and you create a package which is above the limit of 5, then the package will be disabled automatically.
    • Maybe you can make with the "Login with PayPal" API that if you purchase something online you have to only login one time with PayPal, and then just buy packages in-game without having to check out offline.
    You're awesome!

    What about a gift card feature? If I want to award my players with a set amount of credit, then a Coupon Code just won't cut it. If I create a coupon code for $10, but their purchase is only $5... they then lose $5 that they never spent. So I Gift Card codes that retain unused balances, please. It could work exactly like the existing Coupon Codes, but just remember how much they didn't spend.

    One thing for sure is that Buycraft is very costly for what you really get...

    I'm having trouble getting Buycraft to obey my changes to the settings.conf file. I saved and uploaded my changes to the server, executed /buycraft reload. After the command I get a message confirming that Buycraft reloaded, but the plugin behavior didn't change. Any ideas?

    I'm using:
    Craftbukkit: 1.7.2 and Buycraft 6.5

    Could you make it so that free users get at least one of each feature? Like 1 variable instead of none. Then they will be able to use it and realize how important it is and upgrade to premium. But not just for variables; EVERYTHING.

    You also add a way for users to choose when their plan is due. For example:

    Iron rank:

    - Donation perk
    - Donation perk
    - Donation perk

    Choose billing cycle:
    $5.00 - One month
    $12.00 - Three months
    $30.00 - Lifetime


    This would be very helpful!

    PLEASE CONSIDER ADDING:

    • When creating a coupon add the option to select required ranks, that the player bought to use this.
    • I would also like the ability to allow a player to input someone else's name within a variable, so I could do something like a refer
    • Addition of parent categories having cumulative prices that apply to all sub categories
    • The implement in the required packages, of a player who has not purchased anything in that rank. So for example i have rank A, B, C and rank D. A player buys rank B, This player can then rank up to D because the packages required are A and B. But also a new player to the server wants to buy D they can buy D but a player who has bought rank C can not buy rank D because it is not checked in the required packages.

    Would you be able to make it so that you can integrate the webstore modules into external websites, I'd like to show the recent donators on my server's website.

    jorisk322

    This is impossible.

    I don't agree. You can use Buycraft without paying anything. If you're getting so many donations you the premium features, you'll easily earn enough to pay for your Buycraft subscription.

    Hmm. Maybe try editing the file when your server is shut down.

    The free Buycraft package has been improved a little while ago, so I think it's unlikely additional features will be made free in the near future.

    I suggest to add a payment gateway for Middle East customers.
    Which it called "CashU", SnadBox link.

    I highly recommend to add CashU, as it will bring new owners from Middle East to use BuyCraft.

    The free plan is total crap, you are very limited to things you can do, so you if you want a good shop, and you want to use buycraft, you MUST buy that premium plan.

    I don't agree on the first one. Nobody is forcing you to pay for Buycraft. If you want to continue this discussion, send me a PM. We're not going to spam this thread with a flame-war.


    Thanks for the suggestion, but Buycraft usually doesn't add regional payment gateways. Maybe the gateway you want is supported through Paymentwall?

    it is not supported by Paymentwall, as you know most players are under 21 age, which mean Credit Cards non-issuable for them as well as Paypal. Therefore CashU gateway is the most popular gateway and most online games are available by CashU.
    My experience as a minecraft servers hoster, 95% of my customers pay through CashU. And I do know few owners which they receive donations by CashU and handle the rewards manually. I advised them to use BuyCraft, ultimately they abandon it for one reasons, doesnt support CashU.
    Also, I did visit lot of servers, so I'm telling you all servers have signs about donations through CashU.
