Pattern for displaying payment of product with point system such as frequent flyer points.

So the customer is buying a product for $300 and on the payment screen has the option to pay for this with points. However, he only has enough points to pay $100 off the price. This is basic display of managing how many points to use...

(POINTS) ===========|--------------------------- (DOLLARS)

478pts = $100 ................................................ $200

As for the actual payment breakdown

PAYMENT SUMMARY

Product X............................. $300

Points (478pts)..................... $100

Payable................................ $200

The display of whats going to be charged to their credit card, don't think its quite clear yet... any suggestions or examples of where this is done. I have never used a point paying system so I am struggling to find examples.

If that is the case, you want the customer to think of the price in terms of points, not in terms of currency. If they think in terms of points, they will be more likely to spend them, and I take it that is your goal.

So ignoring the poor layout here, I would rather have something like:

Price....................980 points
...........................-478 points (from your balance / wallet)
To pay.................502 points ($ 289)
