Give your points a monetary value by allowing your users to pay for store orders or event tickets using points!

The Gateway add-on connects your myCRED installation with some of the most popular shopping cart and event management plugins. The gateway will automatically detect which supported plugin you have installed and integrates the two automatically once the add-on is enabled!
