[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, Itsyuka ,
    I`ll hope you can add a function for: Remove the Package from the Store after a player buy it (For example: User bought Location "Pirateninsel", the package would be deleted"

  4. Hi guys I've read all your suggestions and some have been accepted. No features will be added however untill we sort out thie current naggy issues with our bukkit plugin
  5. Offline


    Woo, I wonder what suggestions will be in the plugin :p
  6. It will bea performance update. Also guys, I'm tempted to revert the system back to /buy claim. What do you think?
  7. Offline


    Best idea so far, the auto-claim has been very glitchy.
  8. Agreed. We should here every one elses opinion though as well first.

    Hi, i got some error when im starting the server:

    Im running bukkit: 1.0.1-R1
    and Buycraft 3.1

    Could not load 'plugins\Buycraft.jar' in folder 'plugins':
    Caused by: expected '<document start>', but found BlockMappingStart
     in "<string>", line 27, column 1:
        command: buy
    Any ideas whats wrong?

    • /buy claim was fine, but that screwed up occasionally as well.
    • I had already suggested you make it possible to give packages from the back end. This saves the plugin from looking stupid when something goes wrong.
    • Everybody wants a stand alone version. Im not sure I see the utility in a central server for what is essentially an IPN catcher. "My site--> to your site --> to palypals site -->back to your site --> finally back to my server" never made much sense to me. Should be "My site --> paypals site --> My site --> localhost server. Seems much more reliable. Maybe a solid explanation as to why you need to collect this information and or the benefits of using a remote server would help. I understand there are captcha licences and whatnot that you cant distribute.

  11. I have actually explained this serveral times before so im not going to again. I have already stated what the plan is ages ago. No one ever complained about buycraft.net untill we had some hiccups with our hosting, and them bamn, everyone complains. It sounds like your just not interestedin using the plugin anymore, if thats the case, then dont, im not asking you to...


    The reasoning behind the centralized system was to easy the setup for un advanced users, cause we do have alot of them who dont even use a web server, thats why buycraft is popular, because we dont require you to run any additional servers, and the ease of setting it up. Im not releasing source code, as technically it isnt suitable to be run for one server anyway, its simple, and im sticking to my word.

    you really out did yourself with this, this could change minecraft servers FOREVER.

    with such a plug-in anyone with some skills at running a server could quite possibly set up a F2P server.

    this is just... amazing. When I set this up in my new server project, expect to see my GBP in your coffers.

    I am a fan of the centralized system, as long as you maintain the service its less work for server operators, and when my main focus is making the server a fun place people want to spend their money on anything to make it easier is welcome.
  13. Just would like to point out that @Samkio isnt the developer, I am. He only created the installation videos for us.

    The stableness is getting better. We haven't had a crash for 24 hours now and we are back on track.

    You don't take constructive criticism well do you? People have been asking for a stand alone version of this from page one of this post.

    What would make you think I dont want to use the plugin? All I want is a stable reliable system, that I will remind you I paid for. As it is now, Its hardly reliable and has already crashed my server and corrupted a world save, and half of the people who donate have to email me asking why there donation rewards weren't delivered.

    perhaps the author dose not want you running off with his service and doing whatever you want with it. perhaps he wants to maintain a profit or at least steady stream of donations from the plug-in.

    giving you the ability to maintain your own closed system... he might as well never put in the work.

    You seem to be missing the point of an open source software community. That being said, I never asked him to open source the plugin or the web files, Just that I have something to run on my site, so when the IPN handler goes down people arent stuck looking at a blank page on my site. The plugin also freaks out when it looses connection to the standalone server. This causes thousands of errors in the server.log, it resulted in a 288Mb log file yesterday, which managed to fill up my ramdisk and corrupt my world save.

    You put a for pay service out there you better be prepared to deal with critics. I want this plugin to work well and succeed, but Im not going to just ignore the shortcomings.

    This isnt a "oh sorry my plugin didn't teleport you where it was supposed to" this is real live cash money.

    Do you guys know what 2-3 credit card chargebacks will do to a paypal account and how much they cost?

    Do you realize most of these kids parents that are actually forking over the money are already skeptical?

    I wonder what mom thinks when little johnny comes running in saying "MOM IT DIDNT GIVE ME MAH STUFF"
    and its been 4 hours without crediting them?

    perhaps go a week without a crash, then say hello...

    is there anyway to make "free" packages, that don't contact payPal and just execute the commands? this would be a great way to allow players to "join a faction/group" or give "starter kits" while at the same time advertising the items for sale. Its sometimes hard to get people to look at your "store" but if you made it also the place you get free items... they may take a look. Of course such things need to have possible purchase limits and even make other offers expire, like a "choose your gift" sort of thing.

    The whole point in the store is to donate and receive, if you want starter kits just use a kit plugin.
  21. Offline


    of course i could use a /kit, but would that put a "2 USD for a diamond armor set" in your face?? NO it wouldn't. When i turn on my playstation and want a demo of a game, I am forced to see advertisements for other games, because I have to browse the STORE. If a player see's the items they can get, they may be more tempted to donate.

    in the case of donations, out of site out of mind is the key. Free kits and gifts just for visiting the donation shop is a way to increase the chances of donations.

    It should be possible to make a "Test" donation in the server.buycraft.net package overview.

    Maybe like this:
    1. You click a package.
    2. You enter your own name.
    3. You make sure you are online.
    4. You click enter name.
    5. The server speaks to the plugin, skipping "recent donators", packages sold and all the statistics.
    6. Admin makes sure he has gotten what he is supposed to get.

    Maybe this could be implemented?

    It'll be fixed within the hour.

    WorldGuard uses Player sided commands not back-end server commands.
