In wordpress, Gamification is the process by which you turn a website experience into a game with benefits for the customer. For many, this is the perfect way to make your website more exciting and encourage users to stay on your website for longer. The best cases of gamification are those that provide Loyalty rewards through a points program. Users get the points from various activities on your website, then are allowed to use the points to purchase stuff.

POINT AND REWARD SYSTEMS

Ideally, you would reward customers for using your website. This could be things like, forum posts, blog comments, or even something as simple as logging in or registering. Once users get these points, you want to allow them to do something with it, we propose that you allow them to use the points for products, virtual and/or real.

American express is a popular global company which uses a points and rewards system. Your local super market probably has one too. Why should your website be any different? With our WooCube Plugin you can setup this form of gamification for you wordpress cms installation
