Loan Advertisement settings

The Loan advertisement settings controls which products the loan option will show up for. There are default values chosen in this section, which we recommended to keep as it fits with the minimum of a standard interest loan (for example if you lower the amount, customers might try to take a loan with an amount which is too low according to the APR Ratio/ÁHK (Árleg hlutfallstala kostnaðar) and will then be declined in the loan application form on the customer‘s end.

If you prefer that a specific loan advertisement is not shown on the products on your website (for those that do meet the criteria of the loan advertisement settings), you can disable the advertisement in product list and/or in single product overview. More customization is also availble with the [loan_advert] shortcode and can be used in the products section of WooCommerce if desired. Note: Loan advertisement visibility differs between the different WooCommerce themes, you can customise this feature to fit your current theme to your liking.
