Purchase Restrictions Using the Custom Badge Feature

Starting from Ver 2.12, a custom badge feature has been added to the learningBOX badge feature. By using the custom badge feature, you can limit the purchase of certain products on your EC plan to only users who have earned (or passed) a certain badge. For example, on a certification content sales site, a user can purchase a Level 3 certification test, and only those who pass the test will be able to purchase a Level 2 certification test.

Purchase restrictions using the custom badge feature

The general flow of work is as follows.
1. create content (e.g., tests)
2. setting up the content you created as an e-commerce product
3. create a custom badge
4. set the badge created in 3 to the corresponding content in content management
5. set a purchase limit on the product in the EC product settings.

Please note that a dedicated server subscription is required for the learningBOX EC plan.

To explain this function, it is assumed that you have already created the test contents in learningBOX and that you have used the EC function to set up the test contents as EC products. For this reason, the explanation on this page is based on the above flow (3) and beyond.
