Compatibility with Composite Products (and other custom product types)
Custom product types are useful and common, and quick pay buttons on the product page drive sales.
The developers of Composite Products say plugins like theirs may be able to hide quick pay buttons added by PayPal Powered by Braintree, but that the Braintree plugin doesn’t otherwise allow them to pass the calculated Composite Product prices to the quick payment buttons. Here are their comments:
It looks like this extension doesn’t fully support custom product types, such as Composite Products. I discussed this with the rest of the team here and they mentioned that this type of integration should be handled on the ‘quick pay’ plugin’s side. On our side, we can only add a basic integration that removes the quick-pay buttons on the single product page (as we did with PayPal Express Checkout). We cannot write code that changes the way Composite form data are passed to the quick pay buttons gateway.
Here was the Composite Products’ authors comments when they were asked about compatibility with their plugin:
To make these smart pay buttons work for custom product types, the developers of this extension should address the following:
Determine when these quick pay buttons will be visible. These buttons should be hidden when the current Composite configuration is invalid.
Use this data in any way they like and pass it to the payment gateway in an appropriate format.
