After a 2 month early access program, we are happy to announce the general availability of Tebex.io as our official server monetization partner, which replaces the existing commerce system. This is a step forward to allow server owners to monetize their servers and communities. You can read Tebex’s official statement in their blog post.
They are our exclusive provider for server monetization with a competitive commission rate (15%) matching modern commerce services. Tebex offers a wide range of payment methods supporting the most popular Cfx.re server regions and more! With their intuitive dashboard you can launch your own web store within minutes. We are excited to see what you’ll be able to do with this new option!
Profit and “ToS” Compliance
Using their platform will count as ‘built-in commerce functionality’ as described in the FiveM Platform Service Agreement, commonly known in our community as “ToS”. So yes, ‘profit’ is allowed. We know that many of you have been waiting a long time for a “legal” and, most importantly, safe way to monetize aspects of your server(s) and we have been listening.
However, we might instill additional terms to disallow purchasing of Rockstar game content (built-in DLC vehicles, etc.) and mandate tracking of earned vs. purchased virtual currency in order to prevent purchased virtual currency from being used to violate any party’s copyright, including Rockstar’s. If you have any questions, please let us know. We will update you by the time Checkout functionality goes live.
How do I set this up?
It’s simple, head over to https://server.tebex.io/register to create your store within minutes. The most convenient way to integrate it into your server is by using CFX “commerce” natives. Or you can choose to integrate it using Tebex’s integrations such as MySQL or RCON. We will publish a more in-depth tutorial for the CFX natives in the coming days. We would love for server owners, that perhaps participated in the early access, to publish their open-source implementations in #development:releases.
What about servers that already profit?
Since the start of our relationship with Tebex we have received numerous emails by concerned players about communities that already monetize their servers for profit without the built-in commerce and therefore violate the platform agreement. We have not dismissed these reports and are exploring ways of enforcement. Once we have formalized the details we will announce them. We strongly believe that these communities will be very pleased with the flexibility and opportunities that Tebex brings and therefore encourage them to use it.
We would like to thank Tebex for their great platform and service they provide. If you have any questions or want to share any improvements, we are happy to work with you.
