Appearance

Through this tab you can configure the appearance of the form (a popup, a separate page, or a custom page position). Also you can optionally set various text (html allow) before and after form.

  • Request Form Type - this selector allows choosing how the frontend request form will be represented. The available option are:
    • Popup - the form will be displayed in a pop-up window
    • Separate Page - the form will be displayed on a dedicated page
    • Custom (Manual Injection) - the form will not be show automatically; it must be inserted to the product page via CMS (see instructions here)

      Note

      If you set the form type to "Custom" , the "#pricematch" anchor will be added to the "Price Match" link. After clicking the "Price Match" button, the page will be scrolled to where the "Price Match Form" is actually located.

      Also make sure pmatch/form is added and allowed in System -> Permissions -> Blocks 

  • Insert request button automatically on product page - automatically adds "Price Match" button into the product pages. If this option is set to "No", the button must be inserted manually (see instructions here)
  • Request button label - here you can define the text of the Price Match button
  • Text before / after form - these two fields allow to add desired content to the header and footer sections of the Price Match form
  • Show option "I'd like to pay for it" - enables / disables an additional field where a customer can specify the desired price
