PayPal and Other Payment ProvidersMost of the questions that we receive are about integrating UserCredits with PayPal. To make this easier, we have released an add-on to the plugin which allows you to easily integrate UserCredits with PayPal IPN. It’s available exclusively on CodeCanyon.
For integration with other payment providers (and PayPal if you don’t wish to use our easy-to-use add-on), the user credits plugin comes into play only when you have successfully received a payment from your provider, so you need to receive a variable with the payment value from your payment provider. The name of this parameter can be set to meet your requirements on the plugin’s Settings page, making it easier for you to set up your site alongside your payment provider.
Please be aware that we do not support integration with third-party software.
