    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 a player is afk or not.
    # the permission tim.afkbypass would avoid this for certain user or groups.
    afk_payout: false
    display-messages-in-chat: true
    display-messages-in-actionbar: true
    display-messages-in-actionbar-time: 10
    give_money_every_second: 600
    store-money-in-bank: false

    # Payouts will be delivered by "chance" instead "permission".
    choose-payout-by-chance: false

    # You can add as many payouts you want. You only can choose between "permission"
    # and "change", not both.
        payout_amount: 50
        max_payout_per_day: 1000
        # chance: 10
        payout_amount: 100
        max_payout_per_day: 10000
          - /give %player% diamond 1
        # chance: 90
        # You can use any permission name you want. e.g. myserver.donor
        permission: tim.vip

    # Translations
    message: "&aYou earned &c%money% &afor 10 minutes online time!"
    message_payoutlimit_reached: "&cYou have reached the payout limit today. You earned 0$"
    message_afk: "&cYou haven't earned money because you were afk!"
    message_actionbar: "&aYou earned &c%money% &afor 10 minutes online time!"

    message_afk_actionbar: "&cYou haven't earned money because you were afk!"
    message_atm_noperms: "&cYou don't have the permission to use ATM's!"
    message_atm_nomoneyinbank: "&cYou don't have enough money in bank!"
    message_atm_nomoney: "&cYou don't have enough money!"

    # ATM -> Place down a sign with [atm] on the first line to use it!
    enable_atm: true
    atm_title: "&cATM"
    atm_withdraw: "&cWithdraw"
    atm_deposit: "&cDeposit"
    atm_balance: "&cBank balance:"

    # 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.

    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?

    Great plugin! It would not be bad to make opening a bank account so that other players could transfer money to my bank account if I am not in the game. Forgive my English, I am writing with a translator)
  5. DerOlli
    Nice Review! A Permission where one can bypass the IP restriction would be fundamental though. As example when 2 Brothers are playing from the same IP at home but I still want the IP protection.

    Works just as described, a lite quality plugin :)
    Customization, and uses little system resources.
    Thank you!

    Ok plugin. Does what it says
    Great idea, but it's just lagging my server and spamming errors consistently

    does what it says

    I used this plugin many years ago when it was first released. The author wasn't very well known and didn't have very many downloads. But the plugin is and was amazing. I thought for sure in 1.13 id be screwed but I hit up Google for shits n giggles and to my amazement this plugin is not only still around it's actively updated!! This was an amazing plugin back in the day and it still is. I highly recommend to any economy based server.

    Awesome plugin! Works perfectly and looks super cool, it's really awesome that not only did you add the main payout feature but also the ATM feature!
