Widget Playground

Following the Widget Guidelines#

  1. Your widget should be configured based on what plan type you have selected to provide to your customers eg: ‘Equal monthly’ or ‘minimum monthly’ or ‘flexible’ options for the widget.

  2. The Price Per Month (PPM) break-down is only shown for the ‘Equal Monthly’ plan option. A PPM break-down will not be shown when only ‘Minimum Monthly or Flexible’ plans are available.

  3. For ‘Equal Monthly’ plan types the product price is divided by the payment plan term to show the PPM

  4. For ‘Minimum Monthly or Flexible’ plan types only the payment term is shown

  5. Please use the widget playground above to be guided on the specific wording and links to include within the widget
