Part 1: Exploring the Legacy/Backwards Compatibility Setting

In this part, we’ll delve into what the backwards compatibility setting is, how it came to be, and why it may or may not be beneficial for your use-case.


  1. Navigate to the Settings Section: Open your WordPress dashboard and find the FastCredit Pro plugin. Access its settings.
  2. Locate the Backwards Compatibility Option: Scroll down to find a setting that is specifically aimed at ensuring compatibility with older versions of the plugin.
  3. Enable the Setting: For demonstration purposes, enable this setting by checking the box next to it and save the changes.
  4. Verify Changes: Navigate to the “Products” tab to observe the changes. You should see an additional product type that can be applied to your products.

Part 2: Understanding the Product Data Type

This part aims to explain the impact of enabling the backwards compatibility setting on the “Product Data Type”.


  1. Go to Product Settings: Within the “Products” tab, locate the “Product Settings” section.
  2. Identify Product Data Types: Here, you’ll find various types of product data, one of which is called “Fast Credit Product.”
  3. Understand its Origin: This type was used in older versions of the plugin to apply credits to users. But it may not be the best choice now due to improved features in the plugin.

Part 3: Making the Decision to Use or Not Use the Setting

In this section, you’ll learn why you might decide to stick with this setting or switch to a more modern approach.


  1. Analyze Your Needs: Consider whether you have specific use-cases that require the older product data type.
  2. Check for Conflicts: Determine if you use other plugins that may conflict with the “FastCredit Product” type.
  3. Make a Decision: Choose to either keep this setting enabled or disable it based on your needs. If in doubt, it’s usually best to stick with the newer “Simple Product” type and enable credit purchases as needed.
