How to Manage Promotions in PHPFox

Review on how to manage promotions in PHPFox

PHPFox allows the automatic promotions of users on your website. This means that if a user reaches a certain milestone (for example days since the registration, activity points), the system will automatically promote them into a new user group.


Let us say that you have a subscription on your website at the price of $5 USD per one month. A new user registers and when they pay the subscription, they receive 50 activity points. If you have a promotion rule that says, if the user has 50 activity points, promote them to a special user, as soon as the user pays the subscription, the system will automatically promote them as a special user. This will save you time as you will not have to search and promote them manually.


To create a new promotion method, you need to access your website as administrator and then click on the AdminCP button at the top-right corner.
