    Scenario:

    I sell some sort of credits for a real currency, for example USD. Almost like a my own custom virtual currency (bitcoin-like). I run an e-shop that accepts ONLY this virtual currency for payment. I provide some sort of incentive for people to shop at my e-shop in order to promote the sale of the product. The real markup will be in the currency sale, very minimal markup etc. on the actual product in the e-shop.

    Questions:
    - Some sort of e-commerce script or plugin (not sure what to search) that can help me achieve some sort of system either out of the box or from scratch, pretty much to try and save some $ and time on a custom solution from scratch
    - Legal issue? for example if for some reason I have to close any part of the business... I'll definitely consult a lawyer before diving in but if anyone can think of any issue I may have or (intelligent) questions I could ask a lawyer.


    Thanks BHW :)

    myCRED maybe could suit you?
    Don't remember if that supported you to buy virtual points/currency, or if I'm thinking about another plugin.
    But it supports e-commerce.
