Overview

Hosting a Minecraft server has many benefits, such as the ability to completely control and customize the gameplay experience. However, dedicated hardware costs money to manage and use. This can be occasionally difficult at times, as some server owners may have financial issues or concerns. Fortunately, there’s a method for you to make money with it, while providing extra content for your players. Introducing Tebex, a piece of software that allows you to make a webstore for your server. Whether you want to sell powerful items or ranks, there’s many possibilities. Setting this up can be complicated, which is why our system has this software built-in for your convenience. This automatically configures everything, but there’s still other steps needed to personalize your webstore. This can cause some confusion, especially if you’re new to selling goods with this software. Due to this, we’ll show you how to set up Tebex and the webstore for your soon-to-be monetized Minecraft server in this Apex Hosting guide.

Tebex Benefits

Tebex Benefits

There’s many benefits for using Tebex on your server, with making money being the main one. Other kinds include having a dedicated website and area for your players to use, along with other features to help connect your community together. Our automated system only supports Tebex for Minecraft, but may become available on other games in the future. Once you’ve connected this software to the server, you can begin creating your webstore and packages to sell. Keep in mind that you’re also given the ability to make many pages, add sidebars, integrate Discord, and other features to the website. If you have a custom domain, then you can implement that too so everything is personalized for your community. This also makes your Minecraft server more professional, as you can have in-game information, tutorials, or anything else on the website. In other words, Tebex offers you a chance to monetize and enhance your community with almost endless possibilities.

Initial Setup

Before creating your own webstore for the game server, you’ll need to automatically install Tebex through the panel. This process is straightforward and easy to accomplish, which is shown in the instructions down below. After installing Tebex on your Minecraft server, you’ll be sent an email with directions to finish creating your account with their service. Keep in mind that you’ll need to triple check the information used for this setup, as a typo can result in not being able to receive further details.

  1. Head towards your Apex server panel, then click Monetization at the bottom left corner.

Customizing the Webstore

There’s lots to do with your Tebex webstore, such as making new pages for community guidelines, custom sidebars to help reach server goals, create items to sell, among other features. All of this is accessible through your Tebex Dashboard, which may be confusing at first. With this in mind, we’ve created many step-by-step instructions for you to easily understand how to use this software. Review the information below to get started with Tebex.

Creating Store Items

Before creating packages to sell in your webstore, you’ll want to understand some important details. These include the basics of making an item and tweaking it accordingly, such as making it a subscription or limiting how many times the user can purchase it. Additionally, it’s best to set up categories for these packages, like having “Ranks” or anything else you want. This makes it easier for players to navigate through the webstore and begin buying items. The chart and subsections below will help you through this process.

Other Customizations

There’s plenty of other features to try out with Tebex, such as connecting a domain, setting up website themes, integrating Discord with the software, creating discount sales, or banning specific customers. Most of these are straightforward, as they’re all accessible from the main Dashboard. For example, clicking “Discord” reveals the ability to invite the Tebex Bot to your server so extra activities can happen. These can be configured on your package’s command line, allowing you to assign player roles or send messages in-chat. Although, custom variables may have to be created beforehand. Other features might also have preparations, so we encourage you to reach out to the Tebex Support team if you have any questions.

Common Issues

Unable to Use Tebex on My Server

If you’re unable to locate the Monetization button on your server panel, then this means your game doesn’t currently support this feature. However, a manual installation and setup might work depending on Tebex’s compatibility. With this in mind, navigate to your Dashboard and click Your Account, then Webstores. After this, press Create Webstore and continue following the instructions to monetize your server. Remember, contacting the Tebex Support team is encouraged if you’re having trouble with this process. Although, encountering this situation on Minecraft may be caused by an unforeseen issue with our system. This means you should reach out to our Support team so they can help you.

Packages Don’t Work

After creating your package and it fails to execute its commands, then double check you’ve used correct variables. For example, {username} is used to grab the player’s name for the action. These values can be found in the Variables list while creating or editing a package. Remember, these commands are executed by Tebex on your Minecraft server, so they have to be correctly entered. This is amplified if you’re using plugins or mods that have custom ones, meaning you have to make sure no errors, typos, or anything else is present. However, other causes for packages to not work is failing to connect them on your Minecraft server or having the wrong visibility selected, among other possible issues.

Money Wasn’t Withdrawn

Once you’ve received and withdrawn money in your Tebex Wallet, wait a few days to see if it sends it successfully. This process may take some time, especially if you’re still waiting for the balance to process after a player purchases a package. In some cases, this may take 3-30 days for everything to work out. Most of the time, this won’t be too much of an issue. However, double checking your payout method(s) is heavily suggested since any problem with them can result in a failed withdrawal. Similar to other issues with Tebex services, it’s encouraged to contact their Support team for assistance.
