It is possible to charge a part of total amount to make a reservation. Make sure you have selected Confirmation Mode upon payment at Accommodation > Settings and follow the steps below to enable deposit:
- navigate to Accommodation > Settings > Payment Gateways
- select Deposit for User Pays option
- select Deposit Type (Percent or Fixed)
- and indicate Deposit Amount
Thus you apply the same deposit for all Accommodation Types. By default the balance (the unpaid rest of the deposit) can be charged on arrival or by other means out of Hotel Booking plugin. In order to send a payment link to request to pay the balance you may purchase Payment Request addon. It allows to send emails manually and automatically in X days before check-in date.
Note: At the moment there is not an option to set different deposit per accommodation type. Also there is not an option to enable both charge types: Full amount and Deposit for your guests choice.
