Six months ago, we were requested by in4care to think about how Odoo can manage a proprietary currency. At first this looked like a strange question but after some thinking we came with a solution that combines the use of the standard Coupon Program from Odoo Sales combined with Odoo Portal and Odoo webshop.
An own currency seems unthinkable, but for a member organization that wants to create added value to its members, this has become the driver to motivate and attract members.
Coins are given automatically with the purchase of a membership, and per €100 purchased you will get 1 coin worth €100. In the case of in4care this means that the membership is free because you can purchase services and products for free for the amount of your subscription.
These coins are a great tool that generates a greater involvement and dynamism between their members. With these coins members purchase seats during Pitch Pilot meetings, rent Digital Experience Boxes or subscribe to events.
