myCred is an intelligent and adaptive points management system that allows you to build and manage a broad range of digital rewards including points, ranks and, badges on your WordPress/WooCommerce powered website.

Build brand loyalty by rewarding your customers through store reward systems, community leaderboards, monetizing your website content, etc. – The possibilities are endless.

Increase customer engagement tenfold – Rewarding your users for community engagement will help your business grow.


myCred allows THREE different ways through which you can award your users:

Latest update – myCred v2.3

myCred v2.3 is a core update that helps the admin award points, badges and ranks to users in bulk. Similarly, the admin can also choose to revoke these award types from multiple users simultaneously.

Point Management

Empower your WordPress website users by rewarding them points – each user has their own POINT BALANCE that can be used in purchasing online products or online activities.

– Point Balances: Each user on your website will have their own point balance, where they’ll be able to gain/lose viewpoints.
– Account History: Each time a user gains or loses points on your website, the transaction is logged into a central log for accountability.
– Points Management: You have full control over your users’ point balances; You can adjust your user/s balance by adding or removing points with or without a log entry.
– Automatic Points: Automatically award or deduct points from your user’s balance for their interaction on your WordPress/WooCommerce website.
– Multiple Point Types: Create multiple point types through the admin area to manage things easily. There is no limit to the number of point types you can have at your disposal.
– Buy Points: The buyCred add-on allows your users to purchase points using real money using some of the most popular payment gateways available in the market today.
– Store Payments: myCred supports some of the most popular store plugins for WordPress, allowing your users to pay for orders/tickets using their point balance instead of real money.


– Open Badge Functionality – new opportunities to recognize and validate achievements digitally.
– Add badge details (name, achievement, website details, etc.).
– Badge recognition and validation through different badge verification websites.

cashCred is a built-in myCred add-on that allows users to redeem myCred points for real money anytime, anywhere. Give users the power to earn points through myCred’s intelligent rewards system. Instead of giving them cash, you reward them with points that can be encashed at any time.

cashCred works perfectly with a reward system that engages users to perform activities that require user interaction (watching a video, filling out a survey, and more).

– Convert Points to Cash – Users can redeem myCred points for money.
– Multiple Point Types – Allow multiple custom point types.
– Exchange Rates – Define exchange rates for each point type.

Template Tags

– Signup Referral Hook (%user_name%) – This hook returns a username whenever a user signup using a referral link.
– Sell Content (%Price%) – This template tag returns the number of points a user needs to purchase content.
– Badges (%badge_title% and %badge_image%) – Display users’ new badge title and image in the outgoing email.
– Ranks (%rank_title% and %rank_image%) – Display users’ new rank title and image in the outgoing email.

Dedicated Log

Each time myCred adds or deducts points from a user, the adjustment is logged in a dedicated log, allowing your users to browse their history. This log keeps a record of your user’s accountability, badges, and ranks, among other useful statistics.

This log data can be converted into charts to help you visualize the usage and circulation of points on your website.

You can achieve the following features by using a dedicated log for your points system:

  • Set a limit to the maximum number of times each hook can give out points to your user.
  • Badges will use the log’s data to determine which user has earned a badge.
  • Add-ons such as Sell Content use the log to track users who have purchased posts from your website.
  • Add-ons use the log to ensure that a user does not gain repetitive points for the same interaction within a given time frame.


  • Issue badges for any combination of achievements.
  • Detailed badge categorization.
  • Industry-related achievements.
  • Achievement list Shortcode allows you to display myCred badge listing in tabs individually or in a category.

Great plugin, great add ons, and fantastic support! Support was very nice, quick and knowledgeable and resolved my issue quickly. I would highly recommend anyone to use MyCred for their WordPress Website!

I've been comparing 8 plugins before ended up with this one. I had 2 final options, tried both, and decided to use this one due to its versatility and bunch of add ons. After spending one hour exploring this plugin, I couldn't figure out how to make it work, and the support team helped me with a video guide. I am glad i chose this one! I hope to explore more add ons soon. I will have more questions in the future perhaps ;D

I've been using myCred for years. Feature rich compared to the other rewards systems I've investigated. I almost recently switched to another system, but I once again became a myCred loyalist after comparing features. Ironically, the pro features are more affordable than most of the other options out there. Thanks for the years of great support and such a powerful system.

Promptly told how to resolve the situation. I configured the plugin incorrectly, and the technical support told me how to do everything right very quickly. Thank you very much.
