Support » Plugin: Woo Credits » Question about sending credits via email

    I got a question from a client to set up the following.

    Send hundreds of people an email with a unique login and a unique voucher (credits?), worth 10 credits, with which they can buy all kinds of products, but never more than the maximum of 10 units/credits. One credit is 3 euros. They can only place an order with credits.

    Is this possible?

    In the Platinum version of the plugin, you have the ability to manually add/edit each user’s/customer’s credit balance. So, assuming you had a customer list in WordPress and they each had an account with your site, you could add credits to their account, then notify them via email that they have credits to spend once they login to their account. Regarding the “maximum of 10 units/credits” and “one credit is 3 euros” I do not understand clearly enough to comment, but my first impression is that it would require customization.

    Hi Brandon,

    Thanks for explaining. What I meant with the maximum credits is that the customer can not buy more credits. We give them 10 credits and they can buy products with that. They also should not be able to add more products to the shopping cart when adding a new product would exceed the max number of 10 credits.

    Could this work? This in fact would be a one time shop, only to give presents to a list of people. After that the shop will be removed.

    Hi Brandon. I hope you are not on the beach somewhere 😉 but I need some answers because my client has to send out her quotation today.

    So:

    – can I add credits to all customers in bulk?
    – will customers not be able to buy more than the credits they have? (no new credits can be bought)
    – will the cart not except extra products if the max number of credits has been reached?

    – You can manually edit each user’s credit balance, however, this is currently done on an individual basis, so depending on how many user’s you have it could get time consuming.

    – There is not an option to turn off credit bundle purchases, however, you could probably accomplish something similar by not displaying the [buy_credits] shortcode and by adding some custom CSS to hide the “Buy Credits” button in the My Account page

    – There is no limitation on what cart will accept, but an error message will be displayed upon checkout if they have insufficient credits in their account.

    Thanks Brandon. Two and Three I think I can manage. About the first issue, adding a certain amount of credits to every customer, I assume this could be done directly in the database, using a query? But I’m not a coder helas, so I don’t know how to do that. Doing this manually is not really an option with hundreds of employers :(.
