    When attempting to check out with a cart that needs more points than a user has, the error message is “Sorry, it seems that there are no available payment methods for your state. Please contact us if you require assistance or wish to make alternate arrangements”

    Where can this be edited to be more accurate/descriptive?

    Would be great if MyCred had an easy-to-configure option to override this default (and confusing) message to, “Sorry, you only have XX,XXX points in your account” perhaps followed with an option to “click here to buy more points” etc.


    Hi Michael.

    Yes, when you only have myCRED gateway enabled and a user does not have points then the gateway will not show up which will cause WooCommerce to think no gateway is enabled.

    You basically have two options:

    1) Add in a code snippet to always show the myCRED gateway. Even if the gateway shows up, it will still not accept payment if a user can not afford it.

    add_action( 'mycred_init', 'always_show_mycred_checkout_in_woo', 50 );
    function always_show_mycred_checkout_in_woo() {
    	remove_filter( 'woocommerce_available_payment_gateways', 'mycred_woo_available_gateways' );

    2) Adjust your WooCommerce Theme files and insert a custom message that shows when no gateways exists. If your theme supports WooCommerce out of the box, then you should have a folder in your theme called “woocommerce”. The message you see is displayed in the form-pay.php file which is located in: yourtheme/woocommerce/checkout/ folder.

    Although I think Option 2 sounds like a better plan in my scenario, exactly where would Option 1 code snippet go?

    Thanks a bunch. MyCred has turned out to be terrific for our project and we’re looking forward to seeing it evolve.


    Option one goes into your theme’s functions.php file or if you are using a child theme, your child theme’s functions.php file (not both).


    This worked perfect Thanks WPExperts
