Credits within BookingLive are a form of payment. They can only be used by logged in customers/members (must have an account).
Typically if your system wants to reward members with another form of payment to pay for their Activity / Course that doesn't require using their own money - credits are the best solution.
Credits can be:
- assigned automatically to a member when they signup to your membership.
Using Credits will add a "Credit Value" field box on each of your activities so you can specify if you wish to allow Members to use credits against this activity by setting a non-zero value.
If the member doesn't have enough credits to pay for an activity/course - then credit card payment is requested as instead.
- manually assign credits to a member
- rebook as that member using their credits balance for a booking.
If you wish to use credits - you first need to add the below config to your Company Info Config Settings (in ADMIN > CONFIG > COMPANY INFO).
Note: This will add a "Required Credits" & "Credits Only" box to your Activity (as seen below).
When a member is making a booking - credits will always be taken as the first method of payment unless credits remaining do not meet payment total.
Required Credits - Enter here how many credits must be used per participant to book this activity.
Credits Only - Tick this if you wish this activity to only be payable in credits (no cash/card/cheque payment allowed).
