Is it concievable that an addon could be written to allow the direct transfer of True Points [in addition to Gift Points] between members?

EDIT: perhaps through the Point Store? I know there's a Bankr addon that allows members to temporarily deposit points into a 'bank account', might it be possible to create an addon that allows members to permanently deposit points into other members' accounts?

Might it be possible to create an addon that would allow members to spend True Points to buy Gift Points [without the need for Staff to be a middle-man as is the case with a Custom Product in the Points Store]?

It could be done like this, but it wouldn't really save any time.

If you need something quick and cheap and don't want to learn programming yourself, you could put the job up on an offshoring site like freelancer.com.


Become a fan of Composr on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter. Follow me on Minds (where I am most active). Support me on Patreon

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

That was indeed part of what I had in mind when inquiring into addons, it seemed an addon would probably be easier or safer than altering core code [although having zero understanding of PHP as I do, that was a baseless assumption lol.]

Thank you for your time and advice Chris.
