Allows customers to purchase points, which can be spent to buy downloadable products.
The best use case for this module is selling low-cost downloadable items (software, e-books, music, etc.) and customers are frequently purchasing different items. The purpose of the Purchase Points module is to avoid a high number of actual monetary transactions (credit card, PayPal, etc.) because in most cases the transaction fees for small payments would take a very significant part of the payment amount and frequently re-entering payment information is not very convenient for customers as well.
Purchase Points module allows customers to load their account with points, which they can later spend on the downloadable items. Example scenario - a customer purchases 100 points for $20 and spends them on 20 music files each costing 5 points with separate purchases over several days or months. The benefits for seller is that actual monetary transaction takes place only once, so the transaction fee is charged only once and the seller receives the money for customer's future purchases in advance. The benefit for customer is the convenience - downloadable products can be purchased with a single click of a mouse and without a need to enter payment information.
Seller can configure multiple payment plans, for example, 50 points costing $10 and 150 points costing $20, etc.
This module can still be used even if you don't exclusively sell low-cost downloadable products. It is possible to define which products can only be purchased with points and which products only with money.
