myCRED BuddyPress Charges

The myCRED BP Charges plugin allows you to charge your BuddyPress/BuddyBoss users for viewing other users profiles, sending private messages and joining groups. Users are charged and credited in myCRED points in their profiles.

You can combine built-in hooks for charging users for making new friends, creating new groups and much more.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.
