What is a payever widget?
Our widgets allow you to display the payment conditions and monthly rates for installment plans even before a customer initiates the checkout process of your shop. In general, widgets are therefore directly placed on a product page and inform the customers about possible installment plans for the specific product that is being displayed at that moment. If desired, it is further possible to offer an immediate and separate checkout on the actual product page (“Finance Express”) - in addition to the regular checkout of your shop.
For what payment options are the widgets available?
Our widgets are currently only available for Santander installments (Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway). There are no widgets for other payment options.
Where can I find the widgets and how to I implement them?
Open the Checkout app in your payever account (either directly via your dashboard or via the button ‘Apps’).
After the Checkout app has opened, click on the tab ‘Channels’. Here you find all four widgets. The four different widgets (i.e., Text Link, Button, Calculator, Bubble) are similar with regard to their functionality, but differ with regard to their optical appearance.
See the following examples to get an idea about the different appearances:
Step 3: Preferences
You can customize a widget using the configurations available at the top of the page (as exemplified for the calculator widget):
Colors: Make sure to select a font color that is easy to read.
Visibility: This option activates/deactivates the widget. Make sure to set the checkmark, if you want the widget to be visible.
Adaptive: If you set the checkmark for ‘Adaptive’, the widget will be responsive to the device used and adjust its appearance accordingly.
Sort rates by price: If you select ‘Ascending’, the lowest monthly rate will be shown as default (and therefore the longest installment plan). If you select ‘Descending’, the highest monthly rate will be shown as default (and therefore the shortest installment plan).
Finance-Express versus Overlay:
Each of the widgets can be used in one of the following configurations:
Not clickable - If both Finance Express and Overlay are deactivated.
Overlay - If only Overlay is activated and the customer clicks on the widget, a new window opens on the right side of the existing window showing payment conditions and monthly rates for the installment plan.
Finance Express - If only Finance Express is activated and the customer clicks on the widget, a new window opens on the right side of the existing window showing payment conditions and monthly for the installment plan and allowing the customer to initiate a checkout directly in the new window separately from the regular checkout of your shop. Attention (for plugin users): Orders that are placed via Finance Express are only visible in your payever account and not in the backend of your shop system (e.g., Magento, Shopify etc.). We are working on making creating orders in the shop system possible in the future (new version expected by March 2020). As of now, if you activate Finance Express, please make sure that you don’t miss any transactions by checking your payever account on a daily basis.
Step 4: HTML code
If you have edited and adjusted everything according to your preferences and you are satisfied with the result, click Generate HTML code in the top left corner. Now copy the code to the appropriate place in your shop.
Q: I get the error message "Can not get calculations from Server", why is this?
A: This can happen if you have activated payment methods in addition to the installment loan in the same checkout
Q: What do I have to do if I want to design my widget optically different than what is possible using your interface?
A: Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address you used to create your payever account - we will provide you with the relevant documentation on where you can find the respective endpoint and how you can use it.
Q: Where exactly in my shop do I have to insert the HTML code?
A: This depends on your shop system, there are no general instructions. If you are willing to give us FTP-access to your shop's backend, one of our developers can help you insert the widget correctly. Please contact email@example.com if you need help setting up the widget in your shop.
