[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.

    Holy crap the disrespect in the last few pages is unbeliveable! Really everybody @lmc takes his time and effort to create a good, usefull plugin/service and just because the host, that has nothing to do with him is having issues you start getting pissy... Really think about it....

    In theory if a player was to donate 10$ for a VIP package then wanted to receive the VIP+ and donated another 10$ would it work as a running total and rank the player to Vip+?

    Hmm i seem to be getting the same thing as a few posts below, They donate and the payment goes through, I recieve the payment, but it forgets to give them the package xD , sorry if i did somthing nooby
  17. The uSer has a max 5 minute wait and they must be online in this period. This is making people think it isn't working.

    EDIT: Also, any chance to add "ç ã õ Ç Ã Õ" to the site/webstore?

    but I've an error, I've the newest CB-Version for (1.0.0)

    Can you help me with this error?

    btw. Can you make it possible to write text for all the Packages like:

    "This packages includes: diamondsword, diamondpickaxe, diamondaxe, diamondshovel, diamondhoe ..."
    "You can get the VIP-Status if you buy this package. You can use more commands etc......"
  21. Is this error appearing every 5 minutes? Or just one off?

    @lmc can you add feature for private packaging.

    for example i want make package to be co-owner for 1 month but it should be private. only ppl i send them link to can see it only.
  24. Good idea. I thought of this.

    We just hit 3000 packages sold... at least there is something to brighten the mood! PS, when I get home ill sort out the shaky webserver. Were just going through some difficult times with it at the moment, so all please be patient.

    Some reason it not give them ranked once they donate. been hour now.
  26. I'm on my phone at school and can't check ATM. I will be home in 1 hour 40 minus and will be available all night to sort out the issues today. Thanks for your patience.

    Not at the moment, its coming soon though.

    Also to everyone out there, I have had a long hard think about how we check for claimables. I have come to the conclusion that buycraft will not be changing, so that it checks upon login, rather than the 5 minute wait. Thanks.

    Using your phone during class? Criminal.
  28. That's dedication for you.

    This downtime has only happened twice. The only reason it was not resolved quicker was because I was asleep. You should be lucky Buycraft is around, otherwise them 200$ days would of next exsisted. I dont want to turn this into an argument, cause your an alright guy from other posts, just please bear with us. I already put to much of my spare time into Buycraft, I litterally put my soul into making it run correctly.

    Ok guys site is being under stress a little. I think we can boil this down to possible DDOSing.

    I have a premium Buycraft account but I haven't really started using Buycraft yet. However I would pay $50-$100 or more for the complete open source code to run my own system with, so it doesn't have to connect to your website at all for normal operations. I'm a web developer and system admin so I would feel perfectly comfortable with this as I am sure a lot of other people would as well.

    You could easily set up some sort of license key to validate it is a legit copy which we are allowed to install/update and run. You could even add an option in to allow us to send anonymous usage data to you if you wanted to keep track of things like packages sold, etc. 600 files is not many files at all. The bandwidth would be nothing to worry about either considering we are only hosting our own site on our own server. By comparison Joomla CMS has over 4000 files. So there is a demand here and I think you should find a good way to satisfy that demand at the right price and benefit from it.

    If you don't want to offer free support then charge extra for support or hire someone and charge for that.
  30. There is no "source code" to release, buycraft is a multi-user environment, it is designed to cater for different servers running on the same installation, so it would just involve a complete rewrite what isnt feasable. No one has ever had any issues with this untill we had a few hours downtime, im sorting it out and we never normally have downtime (longest period of downtime in 3 months so far). Also, if im not offering "free support", then what am I doing now? What am I doing to the other 500 servers using Buycraft, im not egnoring there support queries?

    Hi guys (Again, yes, sorry mods/admins for constant double posts, however I feel this is important).

    I have been working on the server and configurating various things for the past few hours now with help from @Itsyuka. I am confident that I have found the issue, which was due to an incorrectly configurated mysql server. I am not promising that it will be resolved, however I will be monitoring the server closely for the next several hours to prevent minmal downtime if the worst occurs. I will be setting my alarm to wake me up on the hourly intervals to make sure the site is ok when im asleep, too - I am confident to resolve this issue and do not want it to effect your trust.

    Thanks for your understanding! P.S if the site goes down, please quote this post to anyone wondering what is going wrong if im not here to answer them.
