This plugin has allowed me to easily create a wallet system for my website, where people can buy credit and use it to donate to each other for their content. I had been looking for something like this, and this has been a fantastic solution. It can be used to donate to any post type, I integrate it with other plugins and use it for blog posts, events and courses. Integrates with Woo Commerce and Tera Wallet, and can all be used for free. The support has been great, I have always had quick responses and the team as followed up with me beyond expectation.
