The PTC package manager feature was added to CashCrusader version 3.1. With the package manager admin can create redemption options for PTC advertisements. Member submits the advertisement details on the members area and the feature automatically deducts user's account and adds an entry to admin panel where admin can approve or deny the advertisement and the script will automatically process to order accordingly.
