The current system of how the store works is that you enter your username, select items to purchase, and pay for your items at the checkout screen. However, there is a serious exploit that anyone can abuse to cause people to be banned. Currently, there is no method of verifying that you are the rightful owner of your account on the store page. Because of this, anyone can enter your username, purchase an item, and chargeback the bill, resulting in a ban from the server. PayPal defines a chargeback as the following on their help center: In order to prevent malicious people from banning innocent players by abusing this exploit, adding a system that verifies the ownership of an account is crucial. Spoiler: Proposed verification system Similar to how XenForo (the service that host numerous forums, including Wynncraft) handles two-factor authentication via email confirmation, when you enter your username in the store, you will be required to verify the ownership of your account by choosing to either receive an automated message on the forums containing the code to enter in the store (this will require you to have your account linked to the forums beforehand) or to receive the code in-game via a message that only you can see (this will require you to be online at the time of entering your username). Of course, it is important that the code expires after a short amount of time to reduce the chance of an unwanted person successfully guessing the code. You may be thinking that genuinely buying items for other players will no longer be possible if a verification system is implemented. Since a verification system only allows the owner of an account to purchase items for it, implementing an actual gifting system within the store and the game will solve this issue. Spoiler: Proposed gifting system On the store page, there will be a new category labeled as "Gifts" underneath what currently exists in the store, along with holding the same items. Below the header, a warning message will tell you that you will not be able to redeem gifts you buy for yourself. Similar to how you can purchase gifts on Discord, purchased gifts will be added to a new menu, called the gift inventory, in-game. You will not be able to hold these items in your actual inventory, though, you can visualize it as a display that shows you all of your gifts that you can send to players. Upon clicking on an item, you will be asked, in chat and not a sign, to type the username of the person you would like to send the gift to. You will also be given the option to leave a message and for the game to either reveal your username or to keep you anonymous. Special thanks to @EHTYCSCYTHE who helped me create the idea of adding a verification system and a gifting system.
