Hi there !
I am a french Wordpress developper, I purchased your 2 plugins User Credit and Paypal IPN Addon. I needed this solution for a client website. I’m not very familiar with Paypal “in deep” and I can tell I have some difficulties for plugin configuration and Paypal gateway. First I’m having problems with these 2 variables in plugin setup :
- Successful Payment Variable (SPV)
- Transaction Identifier Variable (TIV)
The question is where I can find these variables ?
Do I need them ?
I’m trying to make Paypal button work on Sandbox for testing and having every time an error message on Paypal with the transaction.
Thanks for helping me,
If you’re using the IPN add-on, you don’t need the SPV and TIV, the plugin takes care of it for you.
We’ve of quite a few people having problems with PayPal Sandbox recently. The best solution seems to be to set up a new Sandbox account and create your buttons again!
Hi and thank you for this reply, I was away for 3 weeks.
I’ve done some tests switching to LIVE environment and problem is the same, after clicking on my Paypal button for buying credits and going on the Paypal page, always having the same message : PayPal cannot process this transaction because of a problem with the seller’s website. Please contact the seller directly to resolve this problem.
I checked parameters several times and followed meticulously all steps for installation Paypal / Wordpress in UserCredits PayPal IPN Add-On – Help and Usage.
Don’t know what to do now, have you got any ideas ?
Bonjour encore Rodolphe. As per our previous reply, we’ve heard of quite a few people having problems with PayPal Sandbox recently. The best solution seems to be to set up a new Sandbox account and create your buttons again!
Hi there ! Thanks for you reply. Found the solution for this problem. In fact, needed to change the Paypal encoding buttons in UTF-8 in Paypal parameters, for matching with website language encoding.
Now Paypal buttons works fine and transaction are working fine.
BUT, I’ve got another big problem now : after Paypal transaction, user is not credited. And this is very embarrassing…
I followed all steps with Paypal IPN Add-On :
- Enabled IPN in Paypal with notification URL corresponding to http://mywebsite.com/wp-content/plugins/xtn-user-credits-paypal-ipn/ipn.php
- Added advanced variable on Paypal button corresponding to notify_url=http://mywebsite.com/wp-content/plugins/xtn-user-credits-paypal-ipn/ipn.php
- Added [obr_user_id] inside the button form
Have I missed something or any suggestion please ?
If you would like to send me some admin logon details (to firstname.lastname@example.org) for your site I will investigate.

Hi there, i’m having some trouble configuring your plugin and i really need it to work sucessfully.
Can you help me install it properly?
Thanks (greate plugin btw!)
Hi. If you work through each of the stages in the Quickstart guide in the Help & Usage section, you’ll be up and running in no time!
I wanted to integrate Points/Credits System to my wordpress website. I think your plugin fulfill my requirement, but problem is that, Is really works like this:
Users can buy Credits by Paypal
Protect any posts Content like download link by credits, for ex: (View download link in 5 credits)
Redeem users point when click on protected link of the posts
Does not expire protection for users redeem their credits
If the user has not matching credits then show like this (You need purchase credits) & add hyperlink of the purchase page
I will wait your reply
Hi. From what you’ve said, it sounds like our plugin fits the bill. You can find out more at our demo site http://outerbridge.co/usercredits/
Does this work on WP Multisite? If so will the credits be shared across the multisites?
Yes, it works on multisite – our demo site is a multisite http://outerbridge.co/usercredits/
No, the credits are not shared across the multisites.
Hello does this plugin feature the possibility to buy Credits in WooCommerce? And then buy other items with those credits?
Hi. This is a standalone plugin, and not integrated with WooCommerce.
Indian payment gateway nad currency ?
Hi. You can configure UserCredits to work with any payment gateway using the variables in the set-up section or you can purchase the PayPal for IPN Add-On which is already coded for you. We are working on a Stripe Add-On but we do not have a Indian-specific gateway. With regard to currencies, the system is currency neutral.
Can this work on gravity form. when user submit gravity form then that user get credits.
Hi. Haven’t tried it with Gravity Forms. Normally, you just put your shortcode inside ours, but UserCredits is designed to deduct rather than add credits when users perform an action.
Is it possible to have the credits transfer option outside of the WordPress dashboard?
Would like to have it on the main website instead of login into wordpress and going to the My UserCredits page.
Unfortunately this is not possible at present.
pre purchase question, does it support SMS/mobile payment?
No it doesn’t, but depending on your SMS/mobile gateway’s API, you might be able to configure this yourself. UserCredits is very flexible, in that you can use a successful transaction variable and an unique reference code for each transaction to process any type of payment source.
