    Is there a way to have a user purchase an items for getting – for example – 1,000 karma points? Once the user purchases something, it will deduct it from their balance. Is this possible?

    Also how does a user get a badge? I read through all documentation, but I don’t see anything about this.

    No 🙂

    You either create event-based achievements, or badges. An example of an event based achievement might be “when the user writes a comment on a post”.

    Badges are awarded only by site admins; after creating some achievements, go into wp-admin and edit a user profile. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and you’ll see some options for Achievements here.

    I wasn’t able to see any badge information on the user profile. I only see two options under their profile – edit their points, and edit their achievements unlocked. I see nothing for badges.

    You’re getting caught up in semantics. As I said, there are 2 types of achievements: events and badges.

    A badge is an achievement.


    One last question – is it possible to award an achievement for a user visiting a specified page? If not, are you willing to do this custom for a price?

    Not without writing that feature yourself, but you might be able to do something with the Achievement Redemption feature. Take a look at for some details.

    I saw that. The thing that worries me is users sharing codes with one another. I wouldn’t want that to get abused.

    Anyways, would you be interested in custom coding this for $?

    That’s a generous example, but I have no spare time. If you’re looking to hire someone for this, I’d suggest getting in contact with Bronson Quick of Sennza:
