Modal is able to accommodate for all types of dealerships. A common occurrence is a dealer group will have a website that displays a collection of all dealerships under their umbrella. This could range from two dealers to upwards of fifty. Sometimes these dealer groups will request that the Modal Checkout buttons only display for certain locations. For example, a dealer group might want Checkout buttons to appear for all of their New York dealerships, but not for any located in Connecticut. Modal is able to complete this request.
In order that Modal exclude some locations, we need to know the dealership that each vehicle is from. The best way for us to have this data is through our <span /> tags. Each vehicle on you website's SRP or VDP page will have a corresponding <span /> tag in the code. These tags will contain a data entry (class) called data-ext-dealer-code that should have a unique value dependent on which location this vehicle is from. You can verify this value is set by seeing the article here.
If the data-ext-dealer-code value correctly shows the dealership for each car, please send a support ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting which locations to be excluded from Checkout. We will make a minor configuration and the specific buttons will be removed shortly.
If this value is blank or not propagated correctly, your dealership will need to reach out to your website provider. Please request your web vendor to update the Modal <span /> tags with a unique value/name for each dealership displayed on your website. Similarly, once this is complete please send Modal a support ticket and we will make the changes visible on your site.
