Newpoints and Bankpipe

Ultimate subscriber
As many of us who waited crypto support use newpoints system, could you please include add-on to the plugin which lets user purchase newpoints?

Newpoints cannot be integrated as BankPipe focuses on real payments by using Omnipay, a multigateway framework.

I mean the approach should not be using newpoints to purchase items, but instead to use bankpipe to purchase newpoints.

For example: Input field where user can enter for example number of points they want to add to their account and then bankpipe should count 1 point = x $, so if user enters 20 points = x$ as checkout.

ProX,

I get what you are saying, but Bankpipe is not designed to give users credit on their website accounts.

I would like to see someone (coder/programmer) to come up with a plugin that works with Newpoints that will trigger an alert for the Admin to give users the proper credit to their account manually.
The funds that the Admin gives to the user has to come from the website funds, not from Bankpipe. That is a different operation.

Maybe, you can go to MyBB.com and do a plugin request that will accomplish this goal for you.

If you have an Admin that does this manually a few times a day, then that is easy to do, but if you have dozens and dozens to do per day, then a plugin or a script to automate this would be ideal.

Serpius This is really not a big of the deal. Even attachments are way more complex which @OP already included, than newpoints.

It needs 2 additional queries to SQL which will update newpoints and set X value of credits to uid and second query which checks if the transaction was successful which already exists in BankPipe. That's why this shouldn't be hard at all. I would do this myself, but understanding the logic behind BankPipe would take lots of time, that's why author should be able to finish it in a relatively fast timespan.

Yup, this is actually possible. It can be added. Requests are usually limited to subscribers or customers though.

Shade I'll purchase it now. Just tell me if I buy it via attachment, will I receive updates?

Not necessary to buy it immediately, I would probably do it anyway as others might have requested it before IIRC. Just bear in mind that purchasing an item does not mean it will speed up things, which depend on my free time. Anyway, all purchases benefit from free upgrades. I may make this clearer in the docs.

(PS: if I were you, I would go for the Ultimate subscription, which gives you peace of mind and access to the whole paid plugins section, including future top tier plugins. It's -15% off too until 11/8, so just 12€ more than buying BankPipe only. Apply ETHEREAL2 code before checking out).
