Once setup, you can use the following commands in game

Command Permission Node Description

/ds currency donationstore.currency Gives a user a given currency

Thats it. Donation Store will now poll your webstore's API every couple of minutes to execute purchased packages.

Configure the Plugin

The Donation Store plugin can be configured to change the queue delay time. The queue delay time is the time, in seconds, that Donation Store will wait before checking if there are any new purchases on your webstore. By default it is set to 180 seconds (3 minutes). This means that Donation Store will try to look for new purchases from your webstore every 3 minutes.

You can change this value in the relevant configuration file belonging to each Donation Store plugin installation.
