Dear, I already have my website ready, but I have a problem since I do not understand the functionality of the packages and the publication of premium ads.
What is the difference between paying package and a premium ad ????.
Can a user post unlimited number of ads? Or can you restrict the number of ads per user?
What I understand is that if the client or web user can buy a PREMIUM ad or can buy a PREMIUM ad package ?, it could be a package of 3 PREMIUMs ads can be a package of 4, 5 or 6 ads depends on the Number that I put as administrator?
But this package I see that there is a section where I as administrator put the number of ads before and after ??, the truth I am well confused, help me to understand this functionality.....
If possible can I give an example?

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Premium Ads:

This type will be highlighted in the home page of the Classifieds site in the 'Featured Ads' section and also will be listed in the 'Ads list' page.

Ad Package:

This type will be highlighted in the home page of the Classifieds site in the 'Featured Ads' section and also will be listed in the 'Ads list' page. You can post more than one ad with this Ad package.

So, basically, "Premium Ads" is a single ad a user can buy where as "Ad Package" is a collection of ad user can buy.

"Ad Package" is configured as WooCommerce product with configuration how many ads a user can create when they buy "Ad Pakage" and once they buy "Ad Package", a new entry created under CPT "Packages" with order number and the number of ads assigned to package.

The screenshot you shared here:
=> hidden link

Where:
Original number of ads
=> the number of ads allowed to create/add by user when they buy "Ad package"

Package number of ads allowed
=> This will hold the number how many ads remaining on your account. This number will decrease in quantity when an ad is added.

Dear David,

Minesh isn't available, I will take care this thread. We can handles those questions on by one,
Thanks for the video, but it isn't in English, for your questions:
I am publishing ads without restriction or any relation between the package and the ad publication ????
You will need to login as a "customer" user, and go to the "My Account" page of wordpress front-end, there you will be able to see the restriction, relationship between the package and the ad publication,

For example,
1) you can login as a "customer" user, click menu link "Add new Ad", it should be URL of your website:
hidden link
click button "Get an Ad Package", and complete the woocommerce payment.

2) login as a "customer" user, click menu link "My Account", it should be URL of your website:
hidden link
You will be able to see the restrictions:
My Ad Credits
Your current number of Ad Credits available is: 5
My Active Ad Package
Your active Ad package is: Package Order #xxxx
Add a new Ad
You can use the following link to create a new listing.

3) click button "Submit an Ad", there you will be able to create a "Premium Ad" post, then the value "Your current number of Ad Credits available is:" will deduct to 4.
When the "number of Ad Credits available" is 0, you will not be able to create new "Premium Ad" post in front-end.

I have created a new customer user and the ad campaign module does not work properly:
1) I do not understand if the package of ads affects the number of FREE ads or the number of PREMIUMS ads?? I imagine it's FREE ads because PREMIUMS ads is already a payment process.?
2) There is a section that I do not understand what it is for (image 2) And what relationship do you have with the ad publishing ????
2) I've picked up an ad package but not updated: "My ad credits" and "my active packages" (imagen)?. I get the following: Your current number of available ad credits is: "0" and The active ad package is: "none". I bought several ad packages and they follow the same values...

Q1) I do not understand if the package of ads affects the number of FREE ads or the number of PREMIUMS ads?? I imagine it's FREE ads because PREMIUMS ads is already a payment process.?

The package of ads affects PREMIUMS ads.

Q2) There is a section that I do not understand what it is for (image 2) And what relationship do you have with the ad publishing ????
They are just custom fields, was designed to setup the order of products, and has been abandoned, so you can ignore them.

Q3) I've picked up an ad package but not updated: "My ad credits" and "my active packages" (imagen)?
This is abnormal, please make sure you are following the instruction as I described:
https://wp-types.com/forums/topic/i-do-not-understand-the-functionality-of-premium-packages-and-ads/#post-557131
And you will need to confirm the order in admin side:
Login as an admin user, Dashborad-> Woocommerce-> Orders
find and confirm the order created by the customer.

Then login as customer user, refresh the "My account" page, and test again.

Q4) I do not know if you can help me by checking the functionality of the page
Your website isn't in English, it will take more time to debug the problem, I suggest you create a test site in our discover-wp.com:
http://discover-wp.com/site-templates/
find "Classifieds" and create your own demo site, and provide the credentials here. thanks
