He can pay using a money or points. The payment will be enforced later. It works in the same way for categories,promotions, extra images etc.


We have already described the payment for extra images in our tutorial. You can find it here: 


We have added a single example added and the "Computers and software" category was chosen. Now when the ad is added it comes to payment. 

As you can see on the picture below - the user can choose between "Use points" and one of several cash payment methods.
