The Dynamic Buy Box allows you to pick and choose exactly which elements you'd like to be shown and used for your Buy Box. It also includes an Image & Video Carousel functionality to show off multiple product images and a video!
Find the Dynamic Buy Box in the "Buy Boxes" section of the page block library:
If you're using a page Template that has the Dynamic Buy Box block already included in it, click the gray pencil icon in the top-right of the block. That will open up the block settings and present 4 tabs that you can edit: Product, Cross-Sell, Mobile Sticky Button and Layout
📝 If you're adding a new Dynamic Buy Box to your page, you will be taken immediately to the Product Selection screen to choose the product you want to feature.
The "Product" Tab
Click into the Product tab and then select "Add Product" to choose the product you want featured for your buy box. Then click the "Next" button:
If your product has Variants, then select which variants you want used by selecting them in the next screen. ZP uses "All Variants" by default, unless you select specific variant(s) from the list by clicking into the "Custom" tab instead. Click the "Next" button to continue:
Next, choose your Product Discount and Product Quantity settings:
There are 6 discount options available in the dropdown menu:
None - No discount will be shown.
Percent (Dynamic) - Show a % based discount which auto-applies at Checkout.
Fixed (Dynamic) - Show a $ based discount which auto-applies at Checkout.
Compare At Price - Show the product's "Compare at price" pulled from Shopify. Make sure the compare at price is higher than the price, otherwise it won't show.
Percent (Static) - Show a % based discount.
Fixed (Static) - Show a $ based discount.
Static discount types will NOT be auto-applied at Checkout. The customer needs to enter a coupon code or you'd need to setup some other method to auto-apply a discount at checkout such as a "shareable discount link" configured with a redirect to your ZP page.
Dynamic discount types do auto-apply at Checkout. The only Buy Box button destination that can work with this type is "Checkout".
Dynamic discount applies to each unit of the product I.e. if you pre-set the Buy Box quantity to 3 units and set a $10 dynamic discount, a $30 discount will be applied at checkout.
When you publish a page that uses a "Dynamic" discount type for a Buy Box, the Shopify Discount code is then auto-generated in the "Discounts" section of your Shopify admin.
You can modify the Discount & Quantity, Choose Variants and/or Change Product at any time by clicking on the More Options menu (3 dots) and selecting the corresponding option:
Click the "Confirm" button to confirm your Product selection and settings.
The "Cross-Sell" Tab
Click into the Cross-Sell tab to add a cross-sell product box within your Dynamic Buy Box. Up to 3 products can be selected. A cross-sell can be used to get a customer to spend more by purchasing a product that’s related to what’s already being featured in the Buy Box. Click the "Add Product" button to add the cross-sell product(s):
The cross-sell section will only show on your published page if either "Cart" or "Checkout" Destinations are chosen for the Buy Box button.
If a "Dynamic discount" is set for the main product in the Product tab, the Cross-Sell product will use the same discount and can't be set independently from the main product.
The next step is to design the layout and style of the cross-sell box. Here you can adjust the Product settings (1) if needed, choose which Elements (2) to use, set the Checkbox color (3) and the Alignment (4). Once done, click the "Enable" button to add the cross-sell box to your Dynamic Buy Box:
Once it has been added, you can then further customize the text, style and image settings of the elements included in the cross-sell box using the options available in the Page Builder:
*Important Note: In order for the discount you've set to display to be shown on the published page, it's required that the "Display Field Titles" box is checked in the Layout tab of the Dynamic Buy Box.
On the live published page, if the checkbox is clicked on a cross-sell box prior to clicking the main CTA (Buy Now!) button, then both the featured product + any cross sell product(s) selected will be added to the Cart or Checkout.
📝 The CTA button also includes a loading animation when clicked on the published page, indicating to the customer that their click has been registered and that they are waiting to be redirected.
The "Mobile Sticky Button" Tab
Click into the Mobile Sticky Button tab to configure the sticky button you'd like shown on Mobile devices, when the page is scrolled 25%. You will need to check the "Mobile Sticky Button" checkbox in the "Layout" tab as well for it to be shown and used on your page.
📝The sticky button can only be enabled for one Dynamic Buy Box added to a page at a time.
The Mobile Sticky Button tab includes the following sections so you can style your button to match your branding:
Layout - The "Initial Price" setting allows to show both the original price and the discount price or only the discounted price
Button - Configure all the styles you'd like used for the button
Product Title - Edit the Product Title and font styles
The "Layout" Tab
Click into the Layout tab so you can pick and choose exactly which elements you want included for the layout of your buy box. Just check/un-check the box next to each element you'd like included or excluded.
The Layout tab includes the following elements you can include or exclude from the Buy Box:
Image Area - 2 options available:
- Image Carousel - Shows the featured image section + a carousel with 9 image slots and 1 video slot
- Product / Variant Image - Show only the featured image section
*Note: For either option, the featured image will update to show the variant image selected on the published page.
Product Name - Display the product name field.
Hero Benefit - Add an additional text field to highlight the product. "BEST SELLER" is the default text.

There is also a live preview window available for both Desktop and Mobile to help you quickly decide on the optimal layout you'd like used. Click the "Save" button once you've finished selecting your Layout elements.
The "Sold Out View" Tab
In the "Sold Out View" tab, you can enable the Sold Out View setting which will automatically replace the Buy Box block with a different block of your choosing, if the product featured in the Dynamic Buy Box becomes sold out.
Just check the box and then select the block you want used to replace the Buy Box and click the "Save" button:
This feature was designed to have the Buy Box replaced with an Opt-in Form, however you can choose to replace it with any block of your choosing. If you'll be using an opt-in form block, it's recommended to connect the form to a particular List in your CRM system that correlates to the product that is sold out I.e. Boom Calm sold out.
When the product becomes back in stock again, you can send out an email everyone on that list to notify them and when they visit the page again, the Buy Box will be automatically shown again as long as the product has inventory added in your Shopify admin.
Only works for a product with no variants, or if you've only selected the sold out variant(s) for use with the Buy Box.
Make sure to include the replacement block directly above or below the Buy Box in the page builder so when the Buy Box is replaced, the replacement block will be located in the same location on the page.
The block selected as the replacement will be hidden on the published page if the Buy Box product is in stock. It will automatically be shown and replace the Buy Box on the published page if/when the product becomes sold out.
To access the Product / Cross-Sell / Mobile Sticky Button / Layout tabs again for the Dynamic Buy Box, a ⚙️ button is available in the top-right corner of the block where those Product Settings can be accessed.
Clicking in either/or location shown below will invoke the same action so you can quickly and efficiently edit the details about the product being featured:
The Button settings for the Dynamic Buy Box can be accessed by clicking on the button element from the page builder. The settings then become accessible from the left-side menu:
Button settings are comprised of the following 4 subsections:
Text - Edit the button's CTA text including font size, style and color
Appearance - Edit the button style, color, shape, border, and hover state effect
General - Adjust the button alignment, size and padding
Destination - Choose the action that is taken and destination directed to when the button is clicked on
The Text, Appearance and General subsections are all the same as for regular buttons gone over here in this help article section.
The Destination section differs from regular buttons and includes options to add a product to the Cart and/or Shopify Checkout. Other destinations are available via the dropdown menu as well:
URL - Link To A Specific URL
Cart has 3 options:
- Add to Cart and load the Cart Page (default)
- Add to Cart and stay on the same page
- Add to Cart and direct customer to a specific URL
The Default Product Quantity field allows you to pre-set the quantity for the Buy Box button. The Quantity Field can be toggled on/off by clicking the switcher.
Product - Link to the Product page of the product selected for the Buy Box
Checkout - Add the product to the Shopify Checkout and redirect to there
This destination also includes the Default Product Quantity field and the Quantity Field toggle.
ZP Page - Link the Button to one of your published ZP Landing Pages
ZP Blog Post - Link the Button to one of your published ZP Blog Posts
Product Image & Video Carousel
One of the best features about the Dynamic Product Block is its "Image & Video Carousel" functionality! You can add up to 15 images and 1 video.
*Note: Variant images will also be shown on the published page when a variant is selected and the variant has an image associated with it in the Products section of Shopify admin.
To add images and a video to the carousel, start by clicking on the image placeholder within the page editor. Then choose either "Add Images" or "Add Video":
Choose the "Add Images" button to add your image(s) from your image library. Multiple images can be selected at a time. You can Crop, Rotate and/or apply Shapes to your images before including them in the carousel as well:
Note: If you haven't added images to your image library yet or need to upload new ones, choose either the "Upload by URL" or "Upload" options:
After your images have been added, the "Images Auto Crop" settings will be available allowing you to crop all images added to the carousel in one click:
And a "Restrict Carousel Height" option which restricts the height of the carousel, regardless of how tall an image added is. This setting is recommended to be un-checked when either 4:3 or 16:9 Images Auto Crop is selected so that white horizontal stripes within the Image Carousel will be isolated:
Each image added can also be edited individually by clicking the "Edit Image" button shown when hovering over a carousel image:
Rearrange Images in the Carousel
Images added to the carousel will be displayed on the page in the order which you've added them. Images can be easily rearranged via drag and drop:
Carousel "Slide Show" Setting
Choose the amount of time you want elapsed before the next image in the carousel is shown. Or set it to "None" if you don't want the images to cycle. For example, if 2 sec is chosen then each image in the carousel will be displayed for 2 seconds before it cycles to the next one.
Carousel Thumnbail Position
Choose the position of the carousel's thumbnail images. Bottom (default) or Left-aligned:
Carousel "Border" Settings
Border Style, Color and Thickness can be applied to the images in the carousel through the Border tab:
Adding a Video
A video can be added to the carousel as well! By default, the video will be added to the end of the carousel.
Click the "Add Video" button to add your video. Then enter in the video's URL or Embed code from a supported video service. Currently there are 6 video services supported: Wistia, Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion and SproutVideo.
You are also able to "Use Video as First Element" in the carousel by checking that option and/or disable the "Zoom Image on Hover" functionality by un-checking that option:
Don't forget to click the "Save" button to save your work!

Product Variant Styles
For Dynamic Buy Box blocks added on or after 10/12/21, the Product Variant Selector element is editable to include "Color & Size Swatches" functionality 🎉
Instead of only having the Dropdown (Default) style available for product variant selection, there is now also Color Swatches and Text Labels styles that can be set for each product variant option your product may have.
To edit the product variant selector styles, click directly on the variant selector element from the page builder to open the element editor popup:
In the Appearance section, you can edit the Variant Selector Label styles (1) the Border Color States (2) and the Text (3) styles for variant selectors that use either the Text Labels or Dropdown variant selector type:
In the section below that, you're able to choose which Variant Selector type you want used for each product variant option your product has:
If the "Color Swatches" option is chosen, click the "Edit Colors" button to manually set the color you want used for each variant option:
📝Colors for the "Color Swatch" option don't show correctly in the Page Builder, only in the in-app Preview Modes (Desktop/Tablet/Mobile) and on the live/published page.
