Why our credit points extension is good for you?
Because it uses Virtuemart both for buy points than for paying with points. You simply publish a product with 1 credit points at your price. Pressing + or - in the product details page or in the browse page the customer decide how many points to purchase. You can also publish a product with 100 credits with a lower price than the unit-credit product. From the Virtuemart payment methods, you build all payments: from paypal, to credit cards, authorize.net etc, and the credit points payment. When users purchase credits, they can only choose from all payment you created expect for the points. When they purchase regular products, they can only pay with credit points.
You can separate the product "buy credits" from the other category, so users won't purchase them together and - if you can not - when a user try to buy credits during a normal purchasing, he pays with credit points, so regular product are purchased with credits and "credits purchased with regular product" simply remain the same (points spent equal to earned credits)
So: a platform to do everything. Joomla, Virtuemart, Reward Points and Credit Points.
