More importantly, the Currency to Points Ratio defines the value of points.
The formula to determine the is value of the points is Points*Formula.
- A product costs $5 and the user has 1 point. If Currency to Points Ratio is 5, the user has the exact amount of points to buy the product (5 ratio * 1 point = 5)
- A product costs $5 and the user has 10 points. If Currency to Points Ratio is 0.5, the user has the exact amount of points to buy the product (0.5 ratio * 10 points = 5)
There are also 3 other useful options:
- Show wallet code
- Show purchase cost
- Show digital wallet balance
These options were introduced in version 2.1.1. They allow you to show or hide Wallet ID/Nickname, purchase cost and wallet balance:
