Points system

The points system is a feature which allows users to buy points and use them to pay for posting ads. For the user, there are three ways of getting points:
  • buying points packages
  • getting points given manually by the administrator
  • getting 'start package' while registering

The points system is built-in to DJ-Classifieds. You do not need to download additional extensions to start using Points System. There are however additional plugins that you can use to make the points system more flexible. Check the articles tagged with #points tag to learn more.
