Today we’ve added the ability to create installment payment price points for your products in DPD.    This lets you do things like “3 easy payments of $29.99” or similar when selling your products.

Some Conditions to using Installment Payments:

  • Currently, installment payments are supported using PayPal Express Checkout and Stripe.
  • Installment payments are an optional price point on products and can be added to any existing or new product with a fixed price.  All products in DPD must be created with a fixed price first.
  • Installment Payments can only be used with buy now buttons as processors don’t support mixing installment and non-installment items in a multi-item checkout.

Update to Marketing Opt-In Based on Vendor Feedback

We’ve released a change to the marketing opt-in feature based on vendor feedback we’ve received since the feature release this week.

Now when marketing opt-in is disabled DPD will function like it always has in the past and will automatically send your customer data to 3rd party integrations. If marketing opt-in is enabled, it will honor the customer’s input when sending data to 3rd party integrations.

To break it down and make it easy to understand:

  1. Marketing Opt-In disabled: DPD will automatically send customer data to marketing integrations just like we’ve always done.
  2. Marketing Opt-In enabled, customer checks the box: DPD will send customer data to marketing integrations.
  3. Marketing Opt-In enabled, customer unchecks the box: DPD will NOT send customer data to marketing integrations.

It is up to each vendor to decide if their marketing practices are compliant with GDPR- we’re giving you the tools to do it how you like.

In addition to our previous policy changes for GDPR, this morning we’ve released a new “marketing opt-in” feature that displays a checkbox on the cart during checkout. If checkout is completed with this box unchecked, your buyer will not be sent to marketing integrations configured on your store.
