Woo Credits is a great WooCommerce extension that allows WooCommerce store owners to easily create, sell and accept credits in their WooCommerce driven shop. Woo Credits Platinum works with Simple, Variable and Subscription type products.

Store admins simply create Credit Bundles and then have the option to assign each product a unique “Credit” price. The functionality is very similar to iStockPhoto or other credit based site, where customers, purchase Credits in bulk, then redeem those Credits towards products in the store. Woo Credits also works perfectly with “Virtual” and “Downloadable” products giving WooCommerce store owners even more flexibility to earn revenue and repeat visitors to their respective stores.

The developers offer a free version on WordPress.org which people can use to take the plugin for a test drive, however, most of features will be found in the Platinum version of the plugin, which can only be purchased at woocredits.com.

In addition to these great features, WooCommerce admins can choose to run a “Credits Only” store, by simply selecting the option in the plugin settings. Running a “Credits Only” store will hide all currency prices and will only let customers check out with their credit balance (currency option will reappear when customers replenish their Credits.) WooCommerce admins can market and sell their Credit Bundles by using the “buy_credits” shortcode on any page or post.

WooCredits also offers Visual Composer template add-ons available for purchase which are pre-designed blocks to help market your Credit Bundles. Other shortcodes available include “user_credits” which displays the credit balance of users who are logged in. Admins also have the option to set credits to expire and can show how long the credits are good for by using the optional parameter “show_expiry=yes” in the “buy_credits” shortcode.
