BankPipe beta 6

BankPipe is an advanced and automated payments manager powered by Omnipay. You can create subscriptions with a wide range of custom options or monetize attachments singularly by setting their prices.

Requirements


BankPipe requires:
- PHP 7.1 <;
- MyBB 1.8.0 <;
- PluginLibrary.

To install and configure BankPipe, refer to BankPipe documentation


Features


Powered by Omnipay


BankPipe's core functionalities are powered by Omnipay, a multi-gateway payments processing library.

CALENDAR At the current stages, BankPipe only accepts PayPal payments, but a substantial expansion of supported gateways is planned for the near future, including Stripe and BitPay.

Subscriptions


Subscriptions, a popular feature seen in similar plugins, are regularly embedded within BankPipe and come with a wide variety of options, such as:
- destination usergroup: usergroup which users will be assigned to when purchasing a subscription;
- usergroup changing mode: if users' primary or additional usergroups will be changed upon subscribing;
- expiration days: amount of days for the subscription to last. Can be set to infinity;
- expiration usergroup: usergroup to which users will be assigned when the subscription expires;
- discount: a percentage-based discount if an user has already bought a lowered-priced subscription.

Third party monetization


One of BankPipe's flagships is its ability to handle single-item purchases by hijacking into MyBB's core attachments system. Each attachment can be monetized singularly by simply setting a price. For this to work, BankPipe allows certain usergroups to enter their own PayPal email address in their User Control Panel settings and start to earn from their own attachments.

You can control paid attachments download permissions either by usergroup or by forum.

When attachments are updated, they inherit the payments' informations. If the name of the attachment differs, MyBB typically uploads a new attachment; to update a paid item with a differently-named attachment, check the "Update" radio button while uploading a new attachment: the old one will be deleted and the new one will inherit the old one's paid informations.

WARNING SIGN Third party monetization requires:
1) proper permissions set in the ACP for both users and forums;
2) a merchant set in the User control panel, under My items > PayPal email.

Promo codes system


Promo codes are an exclusive feature of BankPipe. You can set up promo codes with various options, including type (percentage or absolute value), expiry date, permissions to use codes by user, usergroup and/or item and whether the code is "stackable" with other promo codes or not. Stackable codes can be added alongside other codes, whereas non-stackable codes are meant to be used singularly.

WARNING SIGN Promo codes entered by the user are temporarily stored in the user's browser as cookies, until the purchase is cleared successfully or codes are removed manually.

Cart mode


Cart mode lets you add multiple attachments into the cart and purchase them at a later date all together. It also allows you to apply promo codes, which are otherwise limited to subscriptions. The cart stores items in the user's browser as cookies.

Expiry notifications


You can set an unlimited amount of notifications sent either through PM or email to users whom subscriptions are about to expire or are already expired. This functionality uses MyBB's internal tasks system to automatically process expiring subscriptions and deliver notifications. You can also specify multiple BCC recipients to deliver expiry notifications.

Refunds


Refunds can be issued by administrators from BankPipe's Payments history panel. Only payments with a valid sale ID can be refunded. You can choose how much you want to refund. A refunded subscription is treated the same way as an expired one.

Webhooks support


From beta 6 onwards, BankPipe is able to listen actively to responses generated by gateways upon performing any action on their behalf. This is particularly useful for those payments marked as "pending" due to incompatible currencies, a situation which might occur with PayPal. Pending payments are handled automatically when the merchant approves (or declines) them from PayPal's control panel.

CALENDAR This feature opens up the possibility to add recurring payments in a future update.

Manual subscribing


A subscribing tool is available for administrators willing to process payments manually, for example to migrate from another payments management plugin. You can set the subscription's starting and expiring date, alongside the target and expiry usergroup. Users can be selected one by one using an autocomplete field or you can choose one or more usergroups from which to get them.

Logging system


BankPipe logs every internal action and displays the logs in a convenient fashion within the Admin Control Panel. Logs are stored separately from the actual payments and can be deleted safely if you desire.

BankPipe also stores a complete log of paid item downloads. This feature lets you filter out those who might benefit from a refund and those who do not, depending on your own internal policy.

Required fields


You can set up required fields to be filled right before a purchase; to do so, add a coma-separated list of field name(s) you want to be filled in the correct BankPipe's setting, then head over your bankpipe_subscriptions*, bankpipe_cart* and/or postbit templates and add the field(s)' HTML wherever you want them to appear; they will be sent along the necessary data to purchase items, and they will be validated as requirements.

Let's say you want your users to check they have read a field named "agreement". After you have added it to your settings, the following piece of HTML code suffices:

<label><input type="checkbox" name="agreement" value="1" /> I have read the refund policy</label>
You can add any HTML form input you can imagine. Selects, radios, textboxes and textareas are fine as long as you reference them with the correct "name" attribute.

WARNING SIGN If you do not use cart mode and you want to add a required field for subscriptions, it will be required also for single attachments, so you will need to alter postbit/showthread templates and add the required field somewhere. I'd suggest to add it in postbit_attachments template and use template conditionals to show it only if paid items are shown.

Got a question/issue?


If you encounter issues configuring providers or setting up BankPipe, feel free to open a support thread here on MyBBoost. Since I study a pretty hard university, I don't have much spare time to dedicate to support questions, but I will always provide the support you need as soon as possible. I usually reply within a day.

Demo


Despite a different UI, BankPipe is running smoothly here on MyBBoost. If you are purchasing BankPipe, you are also experiencing its functionalities.

PUBLIC ADDRESS LOUDSPEAKER BankPipe beta 6 is out


I am proud to announce that the sixth beta of BankPipe is now available. This version mainly features a code rewrite from the ground up. This release is marked as beta 6 despite beta 5 has never been officially released; the leap is meant to cover the few who have tested beta 5 privately.

FIRE Code rewrite and new gateway processor


A huge effort has been put into refactoring the whole codebase to comply with an OOP structure. This allows for greater maintainability and flexibility towards third party plugins willing to use BankPipe's functionalities. PayPal Express Checkout, which powered all previous betas, has been replaced by Omnipay, a multi-gateway payments processor library. Although PayPal remains the only supported gateway, this change allows for new gateways to be added in future updates, such as Stripe (credit cards) and BitPay (cryptocurrencies).

ANTICLOCKWISE DOWNWARDS AND UPWARDS OPEN CIRCLE ARROWS Webhooks support


Webhooks are now supported, which means BankPipe can automatically process payments marked as pending by PayPal for whatever reason. Once the merchant accepts or declines pending payments, the buyer is automatically granted access to the resource of interest.

BLOSSOM New ACP features


Logs and payment details have been refactored with a more intuitive and informations-rich interface. Logs are grouped by order rather than being sparse, while payments now list the status, date of purchase, fee and other useful informations.

Manually subscribed users are now listed in the payments section and marked as such in every single payment details page. This feature was suggested here: show manually subscribed users in payment history.

MyBB hooks support


Hooks have been added in strategic places throughout the whole codebase to give third party plugins easy access to BankPipe's functionalities. Refer to BankPipe documentation to see the available hooks with their exact names, files, lines and arguments available.

Other notable changes and fixes


SQUARED NEW CC in pms sent
SQUARED NEW buyers are now redirected to a "thank you" page, which you can style by editing bankpipe_purchases_payment template. This feature has been suggested in modularity/features
SQUARED NEW admins can now override the default merchant account on a per-subscription basis. This feature has been suggested in allow more than 1 paypal account
BUG notification PM issues

Critical changes


The following list of critical changes have been applied:
WARNING SIGN minimum requirement is now PHP 7.1
WARNING SIGN logs other than successful and genuine payments are deleted upon upgrading due to changes in the logging system
WARNING SIGN PayPal Pay Now button has now been replaced by a standard, customizable button. It is your responsibility to style it according to PayPal's policy, as they might require a clear reference to their brand

Upgrading to beta 6


The upgrade process is straightforward:
KEYCAP 1 delete /inc/plugins/BankPipe and /bankpipe folders
KEYCAP 2 upload the new version maintaining the same folder structure as in the release package
KEYCAP 3 run the upgrade script when asked in the ACP.

This release changes all templates and adds 1 new. A patch file is available below; you can view the differences between beta 4 and beta 6 by using an online tool, or your preferred git manager.

The beta testing phase continues. Please check BankPipe development for updates on planned functionalities and bugfixes and keep on reporting bugs and issues and requesting functionalities.
