    The Display settings tab allows you to configure the look and feel of your payment page.

    1. Checkout type: Choose whether the Verifone checkout is displayed as a standalone page where your customers are redirected to perform the payment or as an iFrame (embedded onto your website page). 
      • Hosted Payment Page (HPP) - the shopper is redirected to a payment page hosted by Verifone to make the payment. Upon completion of the payment process, the shopper is redirected back to your website page.
      • iFRAME allows you to display a payment form component as part of your own website, without having to redirect the shopper to a new web page. The form is still securely hosted by Verifone, so there is no additional PCI scope required for you with this solution.
    2. Title: This is displayed on the WooCommerce cart page to your shoppers, indicating the name of the Verifone checkout/available payment methods.
    3. Description: This is displayed on the WooCommerce cart page to your shoppers, indicating the description of the Verifone checkout/available payment methods.

    4. Place order button label: This is the label on the button leading your shoppers to the Verifone checkout
    5. Theme ID: You can customise the look and feel of your Checkout. First, you need to create a custom theme for your payment page, by using the Checkout Theme tool Offsite Link on Verifone Central. Once the custom theme is created, you can copy the Theme ID and paste it into the Display Settings. 
    6. Enable loading state after placing the order: We recommend enabling this. When the Checkout button is clicked on your Shopping Cart the customer will see a loading animation before they are redirected to the Checkout page.
