OpenCart 1.5.x now includes the ability to use a Reward Point system. For example, people who purchase a product can get a point, then you can use those points to purchase other items. The amount of points a products gives, or costs can be setup from the OpenCart Dashboard.

In this tutorial we will show you how to use the Reward Point system in OpenCart.

Enable the Reward Point System:

  1. Login to the OpenCart Dashboard.
  2. Roll your mouse over Extensions, and click Order Totals.
    selecting menu option
  3. Reward Points are Enabled by default. If for some reason it is not, click the Edit link, change the Status to Enabled, and click the Save button.
    enabled reward points options
    You will then see a message stating "Success: You have modified reward points total!"

Setting the Number of Points a product Gives/Costs:

  1. Login to the OpenCart Dashboard.
  2. Roll your mouse over Catalog, and click Products
  3. Click Edit next to the product you want to work with.
  4. On the Products page, click the Reward Points tab.
    selecting tab
    The Reward Points tab lets you set 2 options, and looks like this:
    accessing options
    Below is a brief description of the options, click the Save button when you are finished entering your settings:

There is not a way to set the maximum rewards points within the interface, however, I was able to locate a post on the OpenCart forums regarding modifying code in OpenCart to set a limit to the maxiumum number of reward points that can be used upon checkout that may help you.

What about for a cart like MijoShop for Joomla. Can you use the User Points earned throughout the site to purchase items in the store? If not, do you believe this is somthing that would be costly to have done? Kind Regards,Jeff

Hello Jeff,

We are unfamiliar with MijoShop for Joomla but I do know that it has Reward Points features. You may want to check their support section to get the specifics on how they are used.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
