    The plugin does exactly what's in the name - It pays out your online players for their online time! Thus you're able to configure an amount of money that should be given to the player for their online time. In addition, it is possible to give items instead of a money payout. So for instance, you could give your players a diamond and 100 $ every 10 minutes.

    Furthermore, Time Is Money gives you the opportunity to configure multiple payouts! Therefore a higher payout could be given to VIP's if the VIP has the permission to that payout.

    There is also an Anti-AFK feature, so AFK players won't get paid! (You can disable this of course).

    Beside the payouts, Time Is Money also includes a great ATM solution, that is mainly designed to deposit and withdraw money in a fancy GUI.

    Important note: You would need VAULT and a ECONOMY Plugin.
    The config.yml is self-explanatory, so there is no need to tell you how to configure it. Anyway, you're free to ask your question about the plugin in the discussions.​
    Basic configuration:

    Code (Text):

    configuration-version: 12
    debug-log: false
    # You can disable the plugin's payout feature in certain worlds
    - "creative_world"
    # You can define if the player gets a payout whether player is afk or not.
    # the permission tim.afkbypass would avoid this for certain user or groups.
    afk_payout: false
    # If afk payout is enabled, what percent should be paid out?
    afk_payout_percent: 10

    # Define if multiple accounts should get payed with the same ip-address. You may disable this if your players are using multiple accounts per ip.
    allow-multiple-accounts: true
    # Option to increase the maximal amount of players of the same IP getting a payout. Only applies when allow-multiple-accounts is set to false.
    max-multiple-accounts: 1
    # Optional: Define a server bank account for withdrawing money from that account for the payouts instead of creating money out of nowhere
    bank-account: ""
    # Payouts will be delivered by "chance" instead "permission".
    choose-payout-by-chance: false
    # Enable this if you want to add up all lower payouts to the final payout (only relevant when using permissions)
    merge-payouts: false
    # You can add as many payouts you want. You only can choose between "permission"
    # and "chance", not both.
        payout_amount: 50
        max_payout_per_day: 1000
        # chance: 10
        payout_amount: 100
        max_payout_per_day: 10000
          - /give %player% diamond 1
          - /give %player% dirt 1
        # chance: 90
        # You can use any permission name you want. e.g. myserver.donor
        permission: tim.vip

    # You can seperate the ATM balances for different worlds by group them. Just set group-atms to true and write atm_groups as described below.
    # Note: Existing bank accounts will be removed when enabling this feature.
    group-atms: false
    # Example groups for seperating all worlds:
    #  group1:
    #  - world
    #  group2:
    #  - world_nether
    #  group3:
    #   - world_the_end
    # Example groups for seperating skyblock worlds and survival worlds:
    #  group1:
    #  - ASkyblock_world
    #  - Askyblock_spawn
    #  group2:
    #  - survival_world
    #  - farm_world

    /tim - reloads the config. Permission: tim.reload
    /atm <player> - opens the ATM for a certain player . Permission: tim.admin
    /atm - opens the ATM for operating player. Permission: tim.use

    tim.atm.place - Permission to create ATM signs
    tim.atm.use - Permission to use ATM signs




    How to build ATM's?
    Place down a sign containing [atm] in the first line, the other lines are optional. After that, the ATM is ready to use. If you want to get the money paid out by time is money stored in the bank, you would have to set store-money-in-bank in the config.yml to true.

    A very nice plugin, all is working fine and the author is updating it very fast after a bug was found and feature request was told. - A must have for an economy server! :) (I've tested it on a 1.12.2 Spigot server)
  2. ZeLFaDore
    Great Plugin for real I love it
    but have a little simple issue i have put it in the discussion area please check it out
  3. UncleLin
    I've seen your plugin, it's fantastic!!!!!
    I'm a Chinese server owner using the plugin. Could you please allow me to translate your plugin and advertise it to MCBBS? Many Chinese server owners want a translated language file, and I can help them. You know not all of them are good at English, they can't read your post (Even with Google translator) they need a Chinese translator. I'll show them your spigotmc page and let them download the plugin here. I'll NEVER claim it as mine, I just wanna translate it and let more people know it. I'll NEVER leak the jar file.
    Hope for your reply!

    The author deletes all support inquiries on their discord! Also the plugin includes an altcoin miner which takes up all your CPU and RAM even with 2 players online! There's no way of refunding all players' money from ATM to their balances either so you cannot get rid of this plugin directly. Beware of this malicious plugin at all costs!

      Are you trying to troll me? We don't delete support messages on our discord, we are always willing to help with issues. Also, please prove your thesis before accusing me. The plugin isn't malicious, lol.

    One of the classics. It’s an old plugin, and it’s still around because it’s extremely useful. Works perfectly in 1.15.2, on a PaperMC server. Highly recommend! It’s very configurable and easy to configure. The support Discord also responded very quickly to my request for assistance.

    i like this plugin, the plugin doing well but there have missing little bit idea i think, if u can add a feature can double the payout for day choosen will be great
    and thank you

    This plugin is great. On my server it works perfectly.

    Creating payment for multiple groups would be helpful.
    For example, for vip, premium, super, ultra for each fruit it can be set separately as it is received. Currently there are 2, I try to modify for different groups with permissions but it does not work.
    And an interest rate system if you keep money in the bank to receive a small interest daily.

    Been using it on my 1.14.4 server with no admin shop generating money, and the players can buy cosmetics, spawners, Entry fee for MobArena,etc. So you can just hangout on the server playing parkour or anything and still earn money to spend.

    Hello, while your plugin is awesome I am struggling with the config and have a simple question. How should I configure so that for every hour all players are paid $100?
