[edit] Description

Vouchers are used to fill the balance of a user. You can sell vouchers either printed on paper or over the Internet. When a user logs in and enters a voucher number, his balance will increase by the value issued for this voucher. Vouchers are useful if you want to create an easy way for users to increase their balance without long payment procedure through other Payment Gateways.

[edit] Who can generate and use vouchers?

  • Vouchers can be generated only by admin.
  • Vouchers can be used by admin's users including resellers.
  • Reseller's users are not allowed to use vouchers

He can click it and enter the voucher number. He can try up to X times, where X is set in configuration menu. If he fails to enter the correct voucher number X times (the maximum number he is allowed), he will not be allowed to enter the voucher number again for a set period of time. The values for how many times he can try and for how long to disable attempts to enter are configurable in the Configuration menu.

When the user enters a correct voucher number, his balance will increase, he will get a new payment record, and this voucher will be marked as used.
