Plugin can also be switched toCheckout Mode and it will display product option as part of checkout form, deposit will be applied on cart total, we will explain Checkout Mode configuration in a later step.

To set a deposit options for a product , open products manager and select a product or create one if you do not have any

This is where you can set up deposit options for selected product, here's a description of what you'll see the following fields:

  • Enable deposit : Enable this to require a deposit for this item.
  • Force deposit : If you enable this, the customer will not be allowed to make a full payment.
  • Amount type : Specify the amount type of deposit, You may choose either Fixed Value or Percentage of price ( cannot be more than 100%)
  • Deposit amount : If Fixed value is specified above, you should enter the deposit value in your chosen currency (For example: Dollars). If Percentage of price is chosen, you should enter a percentage instead. (cannot be more than 100%)
  • Multiply by Persons: : This is a special field that will only show up for the 'Bookable Product' type. Enabling this will multiply the fixed value by the number of persons in the booking. (Requires the WooCommerce Bookings plugin)
