Is this pretend beer?


Not through paypal it's not (check the MOD description).

Seems like it's a money transfering MOD (you transfer money to me=you bought me a beer) based on figures the Admin sets (cost depending on the size of the drink+tax).

I think it would be a neat option for those die-hard sports forums, but I would question the legality of it if you used it to "buy a beer" to someone who picked a winning team for example.

I like it, but you would have to be extremely careful how you use it. It opens a lot of doors for some losing crybaby to scream "gambling" since you're using/transferring legal tender.

Sorry that I didnot make it clear. Kalipo is right, it is used to transfering money from one user to another user.

Actually I write this mod is because of a request at my site. The purpose of this mod is that:
Users can deposit cash into his account in your forum, and it is converted to virtual cash.
He think that he must thanks somebody with something, for example virtual beer here, he can use his virtual cash to buy some virtual beer to that user.
And any user want to withdraw real cash from his account, his account balance will be converted to real one, and admin will transfer the real cash into his paypal account.

Is there any chance someone could make this compatible with the Cash Mod? This mod would be fantastic if my users could use their virtual cash to buy each other a Beer.
