YITH WooCommerce Points and Rewards

Description

Have you ever started collecting shopping points? What was your reaction? Most of us are really motivated in storing as many points as possible, because we can get more this way, and often we do not care about spending more because, if we do, we can have a better reward. Hasn’t this happened to you too? That’s what you get by putting into your WooCommerce site a point and reward programme: loyalising your customers, encouraging them to buy always from your shop and being rewarded for their loyalty. If you think that reward programmes were only prerogative of big shopping centres or supermarkets, you have to change your mind, because now with YITH WooCommerce Points and Rewards you can allow your customers to collect points each time they purchase an item in your WooCommerce-based shop. Then, you can have a clear overview about points collected by them in your backend and choose to reward them. A powerful tool that extends WooCommerce standard behaviour, where no point collection is available.

Features of YITH WooCommerce Points and Rewards

  • Set the number of points customers can collect for each purchase in your WooCommerce store
  • Admin can view a list with users and points collected
  • Allow admin to edit points earned by users
  • Users can view points earned so far in “My account” page

FAQ

Is it compatible with all WordPress themes?

Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YITH, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.

How can I get support if my WooCommerce plugin is not working?

If you have problems with our plugins or something is not working as it should, first follow this preliminary steps:

  • Test the plugin with a WordPress default theme, to be sure that the error is not caused by the theme you are currently using.
  • Deactivate all plugins you are using and check if the problem is still occurring.
  • Ensure that you plugin version, your theme version and your WordPress and WooCommerce version (if required) are updated and that the problem you are experiencing has not already been solved in a later plugin update.

If none of the previous listed actions helps you solve the problem, then, submit a ticket in the forum and describe your problem accurately, specify WordPress and WooCommerce versions you are using and any other information that might help us solve your problem as quickly as possible. Thanks!

How can I try the full-featured plugin?

If you want to see a demonstration version of the premium version of YITH WooCommerce Points and Rewards, you can see that in this page. Browse it and try all options available so that you can see how your plugin looks like.

What are the main changes in plugin translation?

Recently YITH WooCommerce Points and Rewards A has been selected to be included in the “translate.wordpress.org” translate programme.
In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‘yit’ to ‘yith-woocommerce-points-and-rewards’.
Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org.
During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in:

  • yith-woocommerce-points-and-rewards-[WORDPRESS LOCALE].po
  • yith-woocommerce-points-and-rewards-[WORDPRESS LOCALE].mo

Reviews

There is one very big flaw in this plugin. The points are burned when the buyer used them, but did not complete the payment. Everyone knows that woocommerce automatically deletes orders that have not been paid for by customers after some time. So, if woocommerce deletes an order, the points are not returned back to the buyer's account. They are considered used. You can't work with this plugin. We are tired of restoring points manually every time, and the buyers are very angry. In addition, the glasses control system is very inconvenient. I do not understand why it was not possible to display the points in the client's card on the administration page or in his order, so that the administrator could immediately add additional points without leaving the order page. The plugin is very crude and I will definitely not buy the paid version.

I never leave bad reviews but this one needs it so as to help others: I've been premium for over a year because of a simple problem. You can't choose which products or categories to exclude. So you have to give points to all products which make no sense since as a seller there are product that you can't afford to give points for. One needs to be able to give points to certain products/categories. Plus there's no referral system which is basic! Lastly, points don't show up on cart and check out not even in emails so your customers will just forget about your points. Customer service is weak and they take a full day to reply. That's not premium service. I got all my answers from their live chat (pre-sale)pretending to be interested in buying. Sorry guys but that's the truth!

Just like any other YITH plugin, this one is horrible. They spam you with advertisements. Poorly designed backend that is not using the native WP backend UI. It has no use if you don't buy the full version. Plugins like this shouldn't be allowed on WP org.
