You can modify the script so that the banner will only display a price breakdown if the product meets your order minimum and maximum thresholds.

To do so, you will need to edit the following values within the script and set the minimum and maximum values to mirror your Afterpay account settings.
script.dataset.min = "1.00";
script.dataset.max = "800.00";

For example, if you set the script.dataset.max value to 100.00, your shoppers would see the following banner on a 200.00 priced product:

Banner not showing up?

Sometimes the script may not work because the HTML elements may be named differently depending on your theme. Please work with your developer to help update the script depending on your theme.

Blueprint

  1. Access your themes template files by going to Storefront › Templates Files.
    Find the file Panels/ProductDetails.html.
  2. Copy the script below and paste it in Panels/ProductDetails.html:

<afterpay-placement></afterpay-placement>
<script>
    (function(){
        const supported = ["AUD", "NZD", "USD"];
        const currency = '%%GLOBAL_CurrentCurrencyCode%%';
        if (supported.indexOf(currency) > -1) {
            let priceSelector = '.ProductDetailsGrid .VariationProductPrice';
            let cachedAmount = '%%GLOBAL_RawProductPrice%%';
            const locales = {
                AUD: 'en_AU',
                NZD: 'en_NZ',
                USD: 'en_US',
            };
            const placement = document.querySelector('afterpay-placement');
            placement.dataset.locale = locales[currency];
            placement.dataset.currency = currency;
            placement.dataset.amount = cachedAmount;
            const script = document.createElement('script');
            script.src = "https://js.afterpay.com/afterpay-1.x.js";
            script.dataset.min = "1.00";
            script.dataset.max = "2000.00";
            script.onload = function () {
                setInterval(() => {
                    if (cachedAmount != document.querySelector(priceSelector).innerText) {
                       cachedAmount = document.querySelector(priceSelector).innerText;
                       placement.dataset.amount = cachedAmount;
                    }
                }, 400);
            };
            document.head.appendChild(script);
        }
    })();
</script>
