Rounded Numbers for Credit Payments

Toki shared this idea 4 years ago
Under Consideration

I would to see a feature where customers can only upload full or rounded numbers as credit payments.

The credit payments are basically for payments where users leave a credit in their accounts. It makes no sense if users can input the amount manually (not in my case) and just upload exactly the same as their invoices which is what some do, if they want to use credits for individual payments, then they should just pay the invoice manually. This is why credits usually come as a minimum purchases, look at the Playstation network for example, you can upload amounts in 10, 25, 50 and son.

Everywhere where credit works they are like that, so there is always a small credit left in the users account which then promotes them to upload more credits.

My suggestion is to add an optional feature for rounding.

Right now, WHMCS only allows to configure minimum and maximum amount. I think it would be even better if besides this options you can set integer amounts only. Maybe this only requires template editing, but that would be no secure, as anyone can by pass it if its just a visual mock. It should be an admin setting. So the option should be for users to enter manual amount like it works today or rounded amounts.

So for example if you set increments of 10. Then the user can only upload 10, 20, 30, and so on. If your minimum credit payment is set to 30, then he can only upload 30, 40, 50.

If the increment is set to 5, he would only be able to upload credits in amounts of 5, 10, 15, 20. I think you get the idea. I don't want users to be upload credits like 11.30$, or 12$ or amounts which are not minimums.

Right now, users can upload ridiculous amount like 10.99 and so on. Which also confuses the billing staff with other products.

I think this would be a nice option and it would be more appropriate to what credits are for which is to leave a positive balance on users accounts instead of just completing partial payments. Anything that is positive for a company to make more money is welcome, and a feature like this will benefit a company as users are going to upload more credits and their chances of leaving positive credits in their accounts also increases.

The template is highly customizable and you could easily change the input text to a select form where the users choose certain amounts based on what you want.
