To reproduce the issue:

  1. Visit
  2. In the DropIn UI, select “Card” for “Choose a way to pay”. image

  5. Calling dropin._mainView.toggleAdditionalOptions() works; but this API is undocumented. 😞 image

The button selector variable here needs to be more specific to each instance, which should be doable.
