Product details

Gift Upgrades allows your members to easily and quickly purchase upgrades for other members. It is tightly integrated with XenForo's core user upgrade features allowing seamless gifting of upgrades you have already created.

  • Integrates in to the default XenForo User Upgrade system allowing upgrades and downgrades to be handled by XF itself.
  • Integrates with XenForo's statistics system giving you a daily, weekly and monthly breakdown of gifts purchased.
  • Integrates with XenForo's criteria system allowing you to award trophies to users based on the amount of gifts they have given or received.
  • Integrates with XenForo's default content systems (profile posts, posts and users) to allow for your members to gift others directly from posted content. This can be easily extended to other add-ons and also allows for you to customize the appearance of gilded posts. Putting the 'Gift' button in easily accessible areas and minimizing the steps needed to purchase a gift is guaranteed to maximize revenue opportunities.
  • Administrators can track upgrades that were gifted through the Active / Expired User Upgrades area.
  • Alert users when they receive a gift.
  • These alerts can indicate who sent the gift or optionally, the gifter can choose to remain anonymous.
  • Support for [bd] Paygates. Accept payments from processors other than PayPal, such as Stripe. Paygates is an optional extra and if it isn't installed, Gift Upgrades will fall back gracefully on stock PayPal. The attached screenshots show what the user will see with and without the Paygates add-on.
