Point Management

Empower your WordPress website users by rewarding them points – each user has their own POINT BALANCE that can be used in purchasing online products or online activities.

– Point Balances: Each user on your website will have their own point balance, where they’ll be able to gain/lose viewpoints. – Account History: Each time a user gains or loses points on your website, the transaction is logged into a central log for accountability. – Points Management: You have full control over your users’ point balances; You can adjust your user/s balance by adding or removing points with or without a log entry. – Automatic Points: Automatically award or deduct points from your user’s balance for their interaction on your WordPress/WooCommerce website. – Multiple Point Types: Create multiple point types through the admin area to manage things easily. There is no limit to the number of point types you can have at your disposal. – Buy Points: The buyCred add-on allows your users to purchase points using real money using some of the most popular payment gateways available in the market today. – Store Payments: myCred supports some of the most popular store plugins for WordPress, allowing your users to pay for orders/tickets using their point balance instead of real money. – Upload Point-type image: Give your point type a unique identity by assigning them an image.

cashCred is a built-in myCred add-on that allows users to redeem myCred points for real money anytime, anywhere. Give users the power to earn points through myCred’s intelligent rewards system. Instead of giving them cash, you reward them with points that can be encashed at any time.

Dedicated Log

Each time myCred adds or deducts points from a user, the adjustment is logged in a dedicated log, allowing your users to browse their history. This log keeps a record of your user’s accountability, badges, and ranks, among other useful statistics.

This log data can be converted into charts to help you visualize the usage and circulation of points on your website.

You can achieve the following features by using a dedicated log for your points system:

  • Set a limit to the maximum number of times each hook can give out points to your user.
  • Badges will use the log’s data to determine which user has earned a badge.
  • Add-ons such as Sell Content use the log to track users who have purchased posts from your website.
  • Add-ons use the log to ensure that a user does not gain repetitive points for the same interaction within a given time frame.


  • Issue badges for any combination of achievements.
  • Detailed badge categorization.
  • Industry-related achievements.
  • Achievement list Shortcode allows you to display myCred badge listing in tabs individually or in a category.
