Easy Credit Payments
Easy Credit Payments is a plugin that will enable your Classipress site to have credit payments enabled. This means that users will be able to pay for featured ads with their credited balance, so you will not have to pay fees to other payment gateways. It is also a payment gateway.
This plugin requires Classipress theme to be installed.
Why should I use this plugin?
If you would like to make more revenue from your Classipress site, this is the plugin for you.
Here are some screenshots of plugin:
So how does this plugin work?
This plugin stores user credit so the user can use it when paying for ad features.
Since version 2, this plugin is able to work as a real payment gateway, so it has two payment type modes:
- Gateway – User pays for all features with credit on Gateway selection page
- Add-on Feature – The amount of bought add-ons is subtracted from user’s credit on feature selection page
It works like this:
- Create membership packs that will be used for crediting.
- After that go to plugin’s settings and select which membership packs will be used with this plugin and configure other settings. You can choose to have a real payment gateway or just a feature credit system. In both ways, users will be able to store credit on your site.
- After you have setup everything it’s user’s turn.
- User buys a membership pack in order to get the credit. You can setup how much credit user will get for different membership packs. It does not have to be the same number as a membership pack price. You can set this up with Price modifier field. If you enter a number without +/- it will calculate percentage, otherwise it will add/subtract the price.
- In gateway mode you can only buy membership packs that are not enabled in this plugin.
- After a membership pack is bought, the plugin will add corresponding amount to user’s credit. If you have selected to expire membership pack, it will expire at that moment. This means user will not have any membership pack active, but will have credit on his/her account that can be used for buying ad features.
- User then posts a new ad and after selecting features the selected amount will be reduced from user’s credit and you will not have to pay any fees to other payment gateways.
- If you have selected to force credit, then paying for ads will not be possible without user’s credit. (add-on feature payment mode only)
Plugin supports all Classipress payment options:
- Fixed price per Ad
- Price per Category
- % of Sellers Ad Price
- Only Charge for Featured Ads
On Active User Credits tab you will be able to see all users with active credit on their accounts and also change the amount of their credit if needed.
There is also a Log tab that will show you all information about user credits.
