I am looking for a good "cart type shop" for mybb and was wondering does this plugin work without minimal issues for others?

BankPipe is fairly stable, except for some minor issues and/or features still in development. That's why it's still in beta.

Ok does this plugin allow for auto role, so if someone donates and it is processed they automatically get a role?

You are describing subscriptions, which is one of BankPipe's main features. As you could see by yourself by subscribing here, you've been upgraded automatically to the Advanced usergroup. Note that these are not donations but regular sells, so PayPal applies a fee on each payment.

Got it so if someone essentially subscribes for a pre-defined item, you can customize what role they get?
Shade 11 May
Yes, it just changes to a defined usergroup (or more than 1, in this case the destination usergroups will be added to the user's additional groups and the primary will stay the same). You can regulate your usergroups permissions as you would normally do.

Another option I would like to see if a way to set up rules for upgrades. For example,

To buy tier 1 upgrade you need 10 posts.
to buy tier 2 upgrade you need tier 1 and 50 posts
to buy tier 3 you need both tier 1 and tier 2 and 500 posts or something along those lines

Hard checks work much better now. You can still add the item to the shopping cart but it wont allow the purchase. I think with a little more work seeing it check before adding to the cart would be awesome but in its current state its still worth implimenting.
