Learn about the customization options you can use to modify the style and layout for your Pay Later messaging.

Product or cart amount

If you pass an amount value to each message, the SDK can render more specific messages that bring more value to you and your customers. Without an amount, the SDK falls back to a more generalized message that, while still effective, has a weaker value proposition to your customers.

For your product details and product listing pages, set the data-pp-amount attribute to the product's price. For your cart or checkout pages, set the attribute to the total cart value.

Example

    1<div
    2 data-pp-message
    3 data-pp-pageType="product-details"
    4 data-pp-amount="120.00"
    5></div>

    Page type

    Use the data-pp-pageType attribute to help the SDK identify the type of page where a message appears. This data is processed and presented to you on the analytics dashboard in your merchant account. In this way, you can view the performance breakdown of these messages across different page types on your website.

    This attribute accepts `home`, `product-listing`, `product-details`, `search-results`, `cart`, `mini-cart`, and `checkout` as values.

    Example

      1<div
      2 data-pp-message
      3 data-pp-pageType="product-details"
      4></div>

      Layout and style

      You can configure messages for different layouts and styles using optional HTML attributes.

      The message layout determines the available style options. The two layout options are:

      1. Lightweight text-based messages (data-pp-style-layout="text")
      2. Flexible display banners (data-pp-style-layout="flex")

      The HTML attribute data-pp-style-layout determines the message's layout. If you omit this attribute, then the SDK will default to the value text. Setting this value to flex renders your message as a flexible display banner.


      1. Lightweight text-based messages

      This message layout is ideal for placement underneath product and cart prices throughout your site. Passing in the product price or total cart amount results in a message that shows monthly payment messaging to your customers, informing them of the affordability of your goods and services using Pay Later offers for financing.
