reward point value

Post by jpeters » 09 Jan 2021, 11:04

Hello Jan,
were can i find / configur the value of points rewarded.
i would like to have the customer make the option to use rewarded point to use it as payment.
that principle is already in phoca cart i see.. but i can not find anywere to define the value of a point.

i see that when points are part of the payment a discount is placed.. so somewhere is defined the value of it.

i did some further testing to understand it.
it seems that 1 point is 1,00 worth

i would expact that when i order a product with 100 point needed to order..
the customer needs to have at least 100 reward points to be able to order the product.
but i notice that a customer just can order the product, even when he has no / to little reward points..

perhaps i don't understand the concept / working of the rewards inside phoca cart.. the manual does not tell anything specific about this.. (or i can not find it).. ;-(

Hi, see:

No, you can set the value of the product in reward points:

So if you define that product which can be bought for 10EUR can be obtained for 100 points then it means that 1 point is 0,10 EUR

So it is not fixed and depends on the value of price vs value of points needed.

Reward points is a specific type of sale. It means, you can use your points to even partialy buy some product.

If some products costs e.g. 100 points and you have e.g. only 50points, you can use your 50 points and pay the rest with money. Or the opposite, you can use e.g. your 1000 points to buy 3 different products.

perhaps add the calculation beside the field to enter the needed rewards.. (price devided by rewards = price per reward point.
