Let’s see together details concerning each of the plugin options to better understand how to configure it correctly.
Follow these steps to configure the download credit system related to the selected membership plan:
- In option “Download number for every term”, set the number of credits that users receive once they purchase the membership. Specify “zero” value if no restrictions have to be applied to allowed downloads.
- In options “Define Download term” and “Download term unit” you can set the term until which credits will be at user’s disposal. You can specify this time limit in days, weeks, months or years.
After the first term, the number of credits available will be restored, unless you have enabled option “Can be accumulated”, which allows adding new credits to the remaining ones.
In option “Download number for first term” you can specify the number of credits that you want to put at user’s disposal for the first term, that is until the first expiry date applies.
If you want that the actual value is the same as for following terms, you can add the value “-1”.
By default, each time a product is downloaded, one credit is decreased from credit total, unless you have changed the number of credits associated to that product; in the latter case, credits associated to that product are decreased accordingly.
Each user will be able to see in his/her own “My account” page the number of credits required to download or access that specific item.
Please note! Multiple downloads on the same resource don’t involve multiple deduction of user’s credits, since single credit can be downloaded only for the first one user makes.
