myCRED is an adaptive points management system that lets you build a broad range of point related applications for your WordPress powered website. Store reward systems, community leaderboards, online banking or monetizing your websites content, are a few examples of the ways myCRED is used.


Each user on your WordPress websites gets their own point balance which you can manually adjust at any time. You can use just one point balance or setup multiple types of balances. How these balances are accessed, used or shows is entirely up to you.


Each time myCRED adds or deducts points from a user, the adjustment is logged in a dedicated log, allowing your users to browse their history. The log is also used to provide you with statistics, accountability, badges, ranks and to enforce limits you might set.

Awarding or Deducting Points Automatically

myCRED supports a vast set of ways you can automatically give / take points from a user. Everything from new comments to store purchases. These automatic adjustments are managed by so called Hooks which you can setup in your admin area.

Third-party plugin Support

myCRED supports some of the most popular plugins for WordPress like BuddyPress, WooCommerce, Jetpack, Contact Form 7 etc. To prevent to much cluttering in the admin area with settings, myCRED will only show features/settings for third-party plugins that are installed and enabled.


There is so much more to myCRED then just adjusting balances. The plugin comes with several built-in add-ons which enabled more complex features such as allowing point transfers, buying points for real money, allow payments in stores etc.


You can find extensive documentation on everything myCRED related in the myCRED Codex. You can also find a list of frequently asked questions on the myCRED website.


myCRED was not built to "do-it-all". Instead a lot of effort has been made to make the plugin as developer friendly as possible. If you need a custom feature built, you can submit a request for a quote via the myCRED website.

Code Snippets

The most commonly asked customizations for myCRED are available as code snippets on the myCRED website, free to use by anyone.


Support is offered on our myCRED website from Monday to Friday 9AM - 5PM (GMT+5). Submit customization request or open a support ticket If you have trouble with myCRED which is not described in documentation also you can consult the online community for your question. We pay myCRED Store Tokens as a reward on reporting bugs and their fixes as well. Support is not entertained here on the support forum or on any social media account.
