buyCRED is not the only way for you to sell points on your website. If you are using WooCommerce and the Gateway add-on, there is really no need to also use buyCRED add-on just for selling points. Instead, you can use the point payout system for products to sell points.
In order for us to create a product that grants points, we need to select the product to be “Virtual” in the product editor. There is no need to make the product “Downloadable” unless you also want users to gain access to something that can downoad besides getting their points.
Finally in the myCRED metabox we need to select the point type and the amount we want to pay buyers. Remember to publish.
In order for the buyer to receive their points, they must be:
- Logging in when placing their order.
- Not be set to be excluded from using points on your website.
- Pay using a gateway that can be marked as paid.
Furthermore, the buyers can not receive points, if they paid for their order using points.
