myCRED is a toolbox for WordPress powered websites that enabled you to build all sorts of points based features. Just like points can have a lot of different meanings, myCRED has a lot of different usages.
Reward site interactions, build store reward programs, offer community games or use points as analytics, it’s all up to you.
Just like WordPress, myCRED is free and open-source. You can download it directly from the WordPress repository without any license fees. There is no premium version of myCRED so you get everything that myCRED offers in one neat package.
Built to be clean and clutter free, myCRED offers extensive documentation and customization options.
Each user receives their own point balance. You can show balances around your website using built-in shortcodes or widgets.
All balance adjustments are logged for accountability and to enforce limits. You can show your users their own history using shortcodes or widgets.
With built-in Import tools, you can import balances or log entries using CSV files. You can also select to enable front-end and/or back-end exporting of balances or log entries.
Referred to as a “Hook”, you can award users points automatically for interacting with your website or when using a third-party plugin.
Technically there is no limit to how many point types you want to use on your website. You can select to format them all the same or give each points it’s own personal look and labels.
Any publicly facing content such as balances, history, badges or ranks are all Bootstrap ready, making CSS styling a breeze.
myCRED does not care which theme you have installed as long as the theme supports shortcodes and widgets.
Award your users badges based on how they gain points on your website with option to create levels for each badge.
Compound and pay your users a daily interest on their balance with option to payout weekly, monthly, quarterly, biannually or annually.
Pay users points on a hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, biannual or annual rate.

myCRED was not built to “do-it-all”. Instead a lot of effort has been put into making it as developer friendly as possible, allowing any WordPress developer to dive right in and build what myCRED lacks.
