    The best plugin for Virtual currency, I've been testing it and using for different purposes and none can even get closer to its functionality. Congrats guys, well done!!!

    Many sell modules here in the addons section. What matters most is the after sales service.

    I am a big buyer of addons for socialengone and have bought very many addons from many developers here.

    2 names you should trust are Hire-Experts and SocialengineAddons. These 2 guys consider their business not just for making money but religiously support you when you need help. You can count on them for 2 main factors. First, timely reply and the second is they come up with possible solution.

    Unlike Younet, Luxervice & SE Pro, these 2 companies, have not only contributed to major modules, but they are serious in business.

      I happened to see what Andy K. The flaw is not with the credits system. The actions for deduction are not added to the credit system. It requires custom modification.

      Check out, credits module is hugely customized. It has major modules of SocialengineAddons, Younet, SE Pro and many other integrated. Not only that for negative actions, negative credits are awarded resulting to reducing the credits.

      Besides that it also allows you to assign credits with decimal values like 0.9 credits for likes. I would suggest you to signup on and test for yourself rather than blaming Hire-Experts credits module.

      You cant expect all the magic for $69, you need to shell out a huge money if you are really serious about your site.

    The credit system has a huge flaw which is very easily abused by members. When an activity earns credit it is added to the balance. For example uploading a photo +100 credits. Posting a feed update +50 credits. That's 150 credits. All good. However when the action is withdrawn, for example the member deletes the feed update, the 50 credit is not being subtracted. The balance is still 150.

    When a member found that hole they just posted on their wall 1, 2, 3, 4, etc meaningless stuff then deleted them and posted more and deleted those too and so on, repeating all that to just gain the credits. Soon enough they were on the top of the highest credits list among all members with hardly any content.

    It's a very bad problem that must be addressed very soon because it kills the entire purpose and makes the plugin totally worthless.

    It's been a very long time and it has not yet been fixed but I am still hoping, and it is a great concept, it does have potentials once the bugs are fixed, and during this time, almost a year I have it, they have fixed a few other bugs upon my requests therefore despite this major issue, I marked this review as LIKED.

    Thank you!

      Since there has been no positive results regarding that flaw, I changed the mark to Dislike, hoping it gets more attention. It's an important fix that supports everyone that purchased the plugin and I believe it must be done. Once it's fixed or we get a reasonable ETA I'll change my vote. Thank you!

    Most people haven't heard of the term gamification. It means to take offline gaming mechanics and apply it to an online environment. Basically it allows for your users to do what you want them to do while making it engaging and fun. Thats exactly what this plugin does. I have a nice site but I felt it was missing something... FUN!!! Well I purchased this credits plugin which by the way integrates seamlessly with many other their plugins (and then some) making it REALLY FUN and ENGAGING. Remember you can have a good idea or concept but if its not engaging and fun users will have a tougher time adopting your over! (no pun intended). With this plugin and the badges plugin (and store if you really want to be creative) my site when for 100 to 10000. It works well and is a must have in today competitive landscape. Great job Hire Experts and to all who read this...GET IT NOW!!!!! You need it!

    The credits plugin helped increase user activity and engagement between our members. It's a good plugin with some cool perks/widgets. Give this a try!

    This plugin gives your users credits to use on other plugins such as gifts. Since installing this plugin, my site has become very active, lots of activity, which makes my site much better. Traffic is also increasing with newly created site content and I put it all down to this amazing plugin!

    I must say Hire Experts is the best team in developing SE, their many plug-ins impressed me with professional development and stable performance, I first time knew Hire Experts by searching virtual coin plug-in, I found their credit plug-in was my first priority to select after thoughtful comparison, for this plug-in is a very complex marketing tool, basic level's team hardly develop such a project, I can insight their professional ability through the plug-in, it is an outstanding marketing tool to rapidly promote our site and offer marketing service for our clients

    Thanks a lot

    Monetization is necessary function which has to be present on all modern social networks. This plugin excellent personified all necessary functions specifically for this purpose. This is must have plugin too!

    In one sentence? Buy, install and use it because it works :-)
    It´s just not for increasing user engagement, but a nice way to offer most active members bargains to pay with credits they earned. No matter if as a standalone solution or together with badges and shop the best "virtual currency" I can imagine.
