How to enable dynamic price and product information

In this help article, you’ll learn how to dynamically adjust your checkout price and product info (title and description) from values added to the checkout URL.

In this help article, you’ll learn how to dynamically adjust your checkout price and product info (title and description) from values added to the checkout URL.

This technique is commonly referred to as using “query variables” but we’ll describe it with simple non-developer language. 

WARNING: Enabling dynamic price and product information makes it possible for the customer to change the values in the URL. We recommend using it when that’s not a problem (like in a pop-up checkout or embed) and/or double-checking the transaction amount paid.


Enable dynamic price and product information

The first step is to enable dynamic price and product information on your checkout.

Dynamic price and product information are available on our Grow and Scale plan, applied per checkout and disabled by default. 

  1. From your Checkout Page dashboard, click on your checkout

  2. Navigate to Settings and open the Dynamic info section

  3. Tick each checkbox that you wish to enable and Saveimage-235a03.png

You can dynamically adjust the price and product information for One-time, Pay what you want, and form pages.

You cannot dynamically adjust price for Subscription and Payment plan checkouts, though you can dynamically change the title and description.

It’s not currently possible to adjust currency, “discounted from” price, or setup fee


Add values to your checkout URL

In this step, you can dynamically adjust your checkout price and product information from values added to your checkout URL.

  1. From your Checkout Page dashboard, click on your checkout

  2. Click the Share & embed button on the top right

  3. Open your checkout Payment link in a new browser tabimage-5d1d7d.png ^

  4. Add values to the URL in the address bar and refresh your browser

  5. Your checkout will refresh with new price and product information

Example 1:

At the end of the URL, add:

?price=20000

This will dynamically adjust your checkout price to $200

Example 2:

At the end of the URL, add:

?price=20000&title=New%20Title&description=New%20description\nLine%20break

This will dynamically adjust your checkout to:

Price:  $200

Title:  New Title

Description:   New description

Line break

Format for dynamic price and product information

Use this as a cheat sheet for formatting the dynamic price and product information in your Payment link URL.

The first new value should start with ?.

Subsequent values should be separated with &.

Price 

Format: 

?price=20000

This would dynamically adjust your checkout price to $200.

Things to note:

  • Price is in cents, 20000 = 200

  • Price cannot exceed 22 digits

Product title

Format: 

?title=New%20Title

This would dynamically adjust your checkout title to New Title.

  • %20 adds a word break

Description

Format: 

?description=New%20description

This would dynamically adjust your checkout description to New description.

  • %20 adds a word break

  • \n add a line break

  • \n\n adds a paragraph space


View dynamic price and product information in your payment confirmation

Your payment confirmation email and payment page will display a combination of the original price and product information and the new dynamic price and product information.

Example 3:

One-time checkout with the following:

  • Checkout name: Webinar pass

  • Product title: Webinar pass

  • Price: $50

  • Description: Get 10% off when ordering more than 5 passes

image-3889.png

Add the following to the end of your checkout URL:

?title=New%20Title&price=40000&description=New%20description\nLine%20break

Dynamically adjusts the checkout price and product information to:

  • Title: New Title

  • Price: $400

  • Description: New description Line break

Displayed in your payment email as:

  • Subject line: New payment of $400.00 for Webinar pass

  • Checkout: Webinar pass

  • Product: Webinar pass

  • Total amount: $400

  • Product price: $50

  • Total amount: $400

  • Product price: $50
