Packages are the backbone of your webstore and are what your players purchase from you. They are also where you define which in game goods the player receives.
How To Create A Category
Categories are what Packages are placed in on your webstore. They allow you to organise your packages into sections.
To create a category:
- Go to Webstore > Packages.

- Parent Category - If you'd like this category to be a sub category of another category you can select this here.
- Packages Display Type - Choose if to display images of packages in this category or instead only display the package names.
- Restrict Categories By Package - If you only want this category to appear if players have purchased a certain selection of packages previously.
- GUI Item - Enter a Minecraft Item ID if you are using the in game package/category browser.
Once you have entered all the options, click Create, and your category will now be listed on your webstore. You can now select this category when creating a package.

The cumulative packages feature enables your players to upgrade from one package to the next by only paying the price difference between the first and the second package.
An example of cumulative packages is shown below:
- Package A = $10
- Package B = $30
A customer purchases Package A for $10. The customer will now be able to purchase Package B for $20 in the future. ($30 - $10 = $20).
You can enable packages to be cumulative by selecting the option on the category edit page.
