Message placement and amount
data-pp-layout="text"), placed near your product's price, and configured with the product's price using
Product or cart amount
Adding the product price or total cart amount can render the most effective message to your customers. For example, if you pass in an amount that qualifies for Pay in 4, the rendered message likely includes specific payment information. These detailed, specific messages perform better and provide more value to you and your customers. If you do not provide an amount, PayPal falls back to a more general message that, though still effective, has a weaker value proposition to your customers.
Updating the amount dynamically
If your website updates the price of a product or cart's total amount on the client-side, update the amount that is passed to the SDK so that PayPal can update the message accordingly. If you're using the
data-pp-amount attribute to pass the amount (which is the recommended integration), you can update the value of this attribute; the SDK continuously monitors for any changes to the value of
data-pp-amount and re-renders the message if necessary.
