ServerKart is a web platform that can help private game server owners, for popular games like Minecraft, make money to pay for the costs of running their servers and help manage their player communities - with zero plugins.
We are aware in the change to the EULA which now permits server operators to monetize via selling in-game items, but with some new limitations to the store operators. While many see this as a difficult upset, we see this is a positive in that Mojang recognizes the game community needs to find ways to monetize their servers, and we believe this paves the path for new and creative ideas to be explored.
As so, we have already started work on some new creative ways for server operators to monetize, that don't involve selling in-game items at all. Using our platform, will give you a "one-up", as we begin to release these new features in the near future :-)
Zero plugins means, you don't have to download or install anything on your game server to use our platform.
Our system works for ALL Minecraft servers, Bukkit, Spigot, and Classic. It also works for 170 other games.
We're focused on the Minecraft community because we feel they already "get us", and we see server owners really struggling to afford their costs.
So, we want to make a big impact in the Minecraft community first, then we'll start opening up to additional games on our list.
This will help us dedicate our attention to one game at a time, and provide a high quality service and product to the community.
We use the RCON Protocol which is a TCP/IP-based communication protocol built into popular games, like Minecraft, that allows console commands to be issued to the server via a "remote console", or RCON.
You can enable RCon in your server's properties file. When you login to the dashboard, there are specific instructions on how to do this. It's as simple as turning on the RCon variables and setting the RCon Password.
Primarily, at first, by selling in-game ranks, and items, via a shopping kart website we've created. A server owner signs up on our website, and creates packages to sell to their player communities.
Upon purchase of products, our website sends game commands to the server using RCon. The player instantly receives their product, and the server operator gets their money. This is completely automated for the server owners, and we take zero fees for this process.
All the server owner needs is a game server, like Minecraft, and a payment method, like Paypal, or Stripe - and they can use our platform.
At this time we support Paypal, Paygol, and Stripe. We are adding more as a top priority.
Our platform is highly customizable. If you don't want private member registration, or forums, you can disable them. Modules are configurable as well.
You can even use one of our 15+ themes for your site, or customize the look and feel to be completely unique using our theme and CSS editor.
We should take a moment to clarify, as it wasn't always allowed:
In June 2014, Mojang recognized that private server owners were the crux of their online game world, and server operators were struggling to afford to keep the community alive. So, in response, Mojang, the company behind Minecraft, recently changed their EULA to allow server owners to monetize their servers in multiple ways, like selling in-game items.
In addition to game stores, we also offer a community building platform, where players can engage with forums, private registration, mailing lists, and more.
We intend to grow our community platform, to help game servers maximize their monetization abilities by using our service.
