Skrill Top-up for CubePoints is a payment gateway plugin (for WordPress) that allows your CubePoints driven site’s users to top up their accounts via Skrill.
To understand Skrill Top-up for CubePoints plugin, first we would like to instroduce you: CubePoints, which is a point management system for sites running on WordPress. Users can earn virtual credits (points) on your site by posting comments, creating posts, or even by logging in each day. Install CubePoints and watch your visitor interaction soar by offering them points which could be used to view certain posts, exchange for downloads or even real items!
The Skrill Top-up for Cubepoints plugin offers a new way to ‘earn’ (actually to buy) points in CubePoints: your site’s users will be able to buy points using their Skrill accounts.
