Requirements

This solution is a synchronisation plugin that must be installed alongside WooRewards on all websites. In addition, here are some extra requirements

  • On all WooRewards websites, you should set up a similar points and rewards system. Rewards have to be the same on all websites so that customers don’t see the difference.
  • Methods to earn points however can be different from one website to another if need be.
  • Mails have to be configured on only one website so that customers don’t receive multiple emails when they unlock a reward or a level.

Points Expiration Warning

If points expire, they will need to be configured on each website as they won’t be synchronized.

This synchronization plugin will synchronize all points movements except the ones done by the plugin itself and the points expiration.


Manual Points movement

If the administrator decides to add/subtract points to a user on any website of the network, all other websites will be updated

Local site information

This entry displays all required information to fill the Remote sites on other websites. Each synced website must be set in all other websites’ Remote sites list.
These options are not editable.

  • Sharing key : This is a unique identifier that you will require in the Remote site setting. You can use the dedicated button to copy the key.
  • Your local URL : This is the local URL that will be asked inside the Remote URL on other websites.
  • Your Secret Auth : This is your unique secret Authentication key for the current website.
  • Your Secret Pass : This is your unique secret Password for the current website.

Remote sites

This list will show you all Remote synced websites, also showing you a Status column of the last synced action.
