1. Unzip the folder and place this folder in your servers resource folder.
2. Add the resource to your server start config: ensure cd_donatorshop (it must be placed anywhere below your framework resource eg., es_extended, not above). The name of the folder must not be changed or the resource will not function correctly.
3. WARNING do not edit the encrypted files in any way.


Step 0 - For existing customers

  • In the cd_donatorshop database table replace the char1: with license: or steam: depending on what your Config.IdentifierType is set to in the config.lua.

Step 1 - Insert the SQL

You MUST import the SQL file to your database. This SQL file is located inside theREAD_ME_AFTER_PURCHASING folder, the file is named SQL_main.sql. Watch this video if you are unsure how to do this HeidiSQL / PHPMyAdmin.

Step 2 - Fxmanifest

You may need to make some changes to the fxmanifest.lua, depending on your framework and dependencies. We have made this easier for you by commenting on the lines which you may need to change.

Step 3 - Configure the resource

You MUST read all of the configurable options inside the config.lua and configure them to suit your server's needs. Please read the ”commented out help text” at the end of each line so you can understand what each option does so you know if you need to change it or not.
The most important sections are the options under the Framework and Important sections at the top of the config.lua. Everything else is optional.

Step 4 - Install the dependencies

There is 1 resource that this resource requires. This is provided in your purchase and is located inside the dependencies folder. Add it to your resources folder and add it in the server start config.

Step 5 - Create Game Server

Create your game server on your Tebex Webstore to generate your secret key. Watch this Video Guide if you have not done this before.
Below is some important information from the Video guide above.
sv_tebexSecret CHANGE_ME
Paste the ConVar above into your server config along with your Tebex Secret Key.

Step 6 - Create a Product

Create a product on your Tebex Webstore and use the command we have provided below. Watch this Video Guide if you have not done this before.
Below is the command we speak about in the video.
tebex_purchase {"transaction_id":"{transaction}", "package":"{packageName}", "date":"{time} {date}", "buyer_name":"{purchaserName}", "buyer_email":"{email}"}

Step 7 - Config.TebexListings

The name of the product on your tebex webstore MUST be exactly the same as the ProductName inside the Config.TebexListings table in the configs/config.lua. The amount is the number of coins a player will receive when they purchase this product.
The product name on your Tebex Webstore.
The product name in the Config of cd_donatorshop.

Step 8 - Customise the UI

You can add or remove products in the Config.Shop config table in the configs/config.lua. There are commented-out examples at the bottom of the config.lua that will explain everything you need to know in order to create custom products that your server can sell in-game. You can also remove or add more products on the in-game shop UI.
If you are using QBCore and wish to sell "character name changes" or "phone number changes" in your shop UI, you must add this code snippet below into qb-core/server/player.lua.
AddEventHandler('cd_donatorshop:UpdateCharInfo', function(source, action, data)
if action == 'charname' then
QBCore.Players[source].PlayerData.charinfo.firstname = data.firstname
QBCore.Players[source].PlayerData.charinfo.lastname = data.lastname
elseif action == 'phone' then
QBCore.Players[source] =

Step 9 - Redeem a Purchase

When a player has purchased a product from your tebex webstore, tebex will trigger a chat command on your server within 2-10 minutes to log the purchase information to your database. After this is done, the player can do the following chat command in-game - /redeem (tebex_transaction_id_here) , which will then save the player's donator coins to the database and they will be available to spend.


Chat commands

All of these chat commands can be renamed and disabled/enabled in the config/code.
/redeem tbx-8832421a77453-etd002
The command to redeem donator coins after their purchase.
/add_balance 1 10
(Staff Command) The example command will add 10 donator coins to id 1.
/remove_balance 2 20
(Staff Command) The example command will remove 20 donator tokens from id 2.


Common Issues

🔔 Folder Name Make sure the name of the folder is cd_donatorshop.
Can’t Redeem a Purchase Has a player has made a purchase on your tebex store and the purchase is still not able to be redeemed in game after 10 minutes?
✔️ Assuming you have followed the steps above correctly; if tebex is not sending the purchase data to your server the problem might be that your sv_tebexSecret key is active on one of your test/dev/local host servers and therefore tebex is sending the data to the wrong server instead, so remove this sv_tebexSecret key from your other servers. Or the issue may simply be that tebex is having issues on their side.
SQL Unknown Column Do you see an SQL error in the server console similar to this example - ER_BAD_FIELD_ERROR: Unknown colum 'job_personalspawn' in 'where clause'?
✔️ You are missing one of the required database columns. The SQL file can be found in the "READ_ME_AFTER_PURCHASING" folder.
Tebex Secret Key Do you see this authentication error In your server console [cd_donatorshop] - Unauthorised Access (sv_tebexSecret is nil)?
✔️ This means Step 1 has not been completed correctly.

Common Error Codes

0886 - The GetIdentifier function in the configs/server_customise_me.lua is returning a nil value instead of a string containing the player's identifier.
4454 - This means a player is trying to use the "tebex_purchase" command manually, and that command is only supposed to be triggered by tebex when a player makes a purchase.
7742/7784 - This could mean either you are triggering the "tebex_purchase" from the console, which you shouldn't be? Or tebex is not sending the correct data due to step 2 not being completed correctly.


1. Check if the script has authorized correctly. Check the server console to make sure there are no errors saying You lack the required entitlement? and check for 2 client-sided prints saying Loaded Successfully!.
2. Check for obvious error prints in the server console and the client F8 console. If you don't see any obvious errors make sure to restart the script while the server is live and check again.
3. If none of the above worked, have a second read through the installation guide above, you may have missed something - you are only human.
If all else fails, contact the Codesign Team in the Codesign Discord.


Files Changed: Not every update requires you to replace the whole folder. We do this because we understand it's a pain to redo the configs for every update.
  • All Files - This means you should delete your old cd_donatorshop folder, download and add in the latest version, reconfigure the configs folder and restart your server.
  • Specific Files - This means you can simply copy and paste the SPECIFIC new files over the old ones and restart the server.
Update Type: On rare occasions, you are forced to update to the latest version. Mostly due to authentication updates where the old versions will no longer work.
  • Mandatory - This means you MUST update to this new version or the old versions will no longer work.
  • Optional - This means its completely your choice whether you wish to update to the latest version. But we do not offer support for old versions for obvious reasons; they are old.
