Afterpay

Afterpay has transformed the way people pay by allowing shoppers to receive products immediately and pay in 4 instalments over a short period of time.

Advanced Configuration ↑ Back to top

The ‘Afterpay Gateway for WooCommerce’ plugin is available for extension or customisation, without alternations to the plugin code.
This allows for a greater level of compatibility with future updates.

Advanced Configuration is divided into the following sections:

 

Check Product Eligibility ↑ Back to top

The Afterpay plugin runs a series of checks to determine whether Afterpay should be an available payment option for each individual product. Third-party plugins can exclude Afterpay from products that would otherwise be considered supported. This can be done by attaching to the following filter hook:
afterpay_is_product_supported

Example (PHP):

 

/**
* @param bool $bool_result
* @param WC_Product $product
*/
function afterpay_ips_callback( $bool_result, $product ) {
# My custom products don’t support Afterpay.
if ($product->get_type() == ‘my-custom-product-type’) {
$bool_result = false;
} return $bool_result;
}
add_filter( ‘afterpay_is_product_supported’, ‘afterpay_ips_callback’, 10, 2 );
 

Display on Individual Product Pages ↑ Back to top

Third-party plugins can also filter the HTML content rendered on individual product pages using the following filter hook:
afterpay_html_on_individual_product_pages

*Note: This is intended for altering the HTML based on custom, varying criteria.
For setting the default HTML, use the admin interface under:
“WooCommerce > Settings > Checkout > Afterpay”.
For hiding the HTML for a subset of products, consider using the following filter hook: afterpay_is_product_supported

Example (PHP):

/**
* @param string $str_html
* @param WC_Product $product
* @param float $price
*/
function afterpay_hoipp_callback( $str_html, $product, $price ) {
     # Show a different message for products below a custom threshold.
     # Note that this will only be called if the product price is within
     # the payment limits defined at the account level.
     if ($price < 10.00) {
$str_html = “<p>Shop Now, Pay Later with Afterpay. Supported for orders over $10.00</p>”; }
     return $str_html;
}
add_filter( ‘afterpay_html_on_individual_product_pages’, ‘afterpay_hoipp_callback’, 10, 3 );
 

Display on Category Pages and Search Results ↑ Back to top

To filter the HTML content rendered on category pages and search results, use the following filter hook:
afterpay_html_on_product_thumbnails

*Note: This is intended for altering the HTML based on custom, varying criteria.
For setting the default HTML, use the admin interface under:
“WooCommerce > Settings > Checkout > Afterpay”.
For hiding the HTML for a subset of products, consider using the following filter hook: afterpay_is_product_supported

 
 

Display on the Cart Page ↑ Back to top

To filter the HTML content rendered on the cart page, use the following filter hook: afterpay_html_on_cart_page

 
 

Display at the Checkout ↑ Back to top

To filter the HTML content rendered at the checkout, use the following filter hook: afterpay_html_at_checkout

 
 

Customising Hooks & Priorities ↑ Back to top

As discussed in the section entitled “Theme Support” above, various WooCommerce hooks are assumed to be implemented by the active WordPress theme. Afterpay methods can be detached from their default hooks and reattached to different hooks, or to the same hooks with different priorities.

Since version 2.1.0, hooks and priorities can be customised from within the plugin settings page.

Shortcodes ↑ Back to top

Afterpay Product Logo

This is provided for rendering an advanced img tag for displaying the Afterpay logo on individual product pages. The img tag uses the srcset attribute to include 3 different resolutions of the logo for screens with varying pixel density ratios.

Or make 4 payments [OF_OR_FROM] [AMOUNT] with [afterpay_product_logo]

 
There are 3 different versions of the logo to chose from:
  • colour
  • black
  • white

The default theme is colour. This can be overridden by including a theme attribute inside the shortcode. For example, if you have a dark themed website and wish to use the white mono version of the Afterpay logo:

Or make 4 payments [OF_OR_FROM] [AMOUNT] with [afterpay_product_logo theme=”white”]
 

Afterpay Product Messaging

To use the shortcode on product pages, please make sure the “Payment Info on Individual Product Pages” has been enabled. Edit the text content as appropriate. Optionally, clear the hook name if you would like to disable the default behaviour of rendering the content when the hook is triggered. Instead, the content will then only render wherever the shortcode is added.

Then simply paste [afterpay_paragraph] into the product description, or into a content area using your page builder.

To use the shortcode on custom pages, simply provide a product id in the shortcode.

[afterpay_paragraph id=”99″]
