Dropzone and BankPipe

Ultimate subscriber
Hello - is there a fee for upgrading to newer versions of these plugins? From what I gather, further updates are imminent and it would suck to pay twice if something is almost ready for release. I have a few questions regarding these two plugins.

For Dropzone:

(1) Has this plugin now been updated to include the ability to insert attachments into posts?
(2) What about approving and unapproving attachments? I won't be using Imgur and would like to see all of MyBB's native attachment-related functions included within this plugin.
(3) How easy would it be to implement a progress bar that pulls an input from the user's browser? This could be done client-side (I believe it's possible to somehow pull the percentage from a browser).
(4) If I use Dropzone and disable it after a while, will there be any issues reverting back to MyBB? Is there a chance that this plugin might interfere with upgrades or forum conversions (switching to Xenforo hypothetically - I have no plans to do so but I want that optionality).

For BankPipe:

(1) As an admin, can I track every single transaction?
(2) Can I view total transactions, in dollar or currency terms (not units sold), for a specific member or a specific item?

I'm asking about this because I'd let members on my site sell stuff, however they'd sell through my PayPal address. Every week, I'd calculate their sales and give them their money after subtracting my cut of the revenue (10% to 20%).

Hi, all payments are lifetime and include future updates for free.

Regarding MyDropzone, it has not been updated to have neither an insert into post nor unapproving options. An update is planned, but I can’t really give an ETA. It could be one day or several months.

The live update feature is not a standard Dropzone.js functionality, so that won’t happen, unless I switch over Uppy (which is under evaluation).

MyDropzone just replaces the frontend, does nothing to the backend routines. Deactivating the plugin will have no effect over migrations nor upgrades.

Regarding BankPipe, every transaction is saved in the db and shown in the acp. Also, every internal action is logged, so you can see a detailed history of user’s actions (eg: created, failed, pending, etc.). As an admin you can see a payments list in the user’s profile; at the moment there is no total neither for money spent nor received. It can be added as a new feature (and I am always happy to implement what my customers want to have).

Thanks Shade! You do great work.

Is there any chance of getting the Dropzone update released soon? Also, I came across a discussion you were having about conversion-style PMs. Is this unlikely to happen soon?

For custom work, can you PM me the hourly rate you typically charge? I'd love to have someone knowledgeable of MyBB help me with a few things and you're clearly quite talented.

Edit: Just made a purchase of the Ultimate subscription!

The Dropzone plugin is amazing. I installed a test version. The ability to insert images inline is pretty important though.

Is there a change I can make to the script that might add this back as a feature? Would this be a time-consuming addition to undertake as custom work (adding inline insertion, approve, unapprove)?

I have still to evaluate how to implement these. I do have some spare time tomorrow and on tuesday.

As for hourly rate, I don’t charge hourly. Custom work may be discussed in the private inquiries forum, bearing in mind my chronic lack of time and other requests currently under development. Conversation PMs are one of these.
