In this article we are going to provide you the steps on how to accept partial payments using the Partial Deposits Addon for WooCommerce Booking & Appointment Plugin. Partial payments are defined as payments that accept a certain part of it for various reasons and have no fixed standard.
First step is to create your product in WooCommerce by clicking the Product > Add Product where you will find a Product Data metabox. You can now set the regular price of your product below it.
Second step is to setup your booking options for the hotel rooms using the Booking metabox on the same page. You can enable the booking date and multiple day booking. You can also set a limit using Lockout Data after X orders field that block the dates once it reaches many bookings.
Third step is set the advance booking period under the Bookable Time Period Tab. By setting it, there will be no last minute reservations for the product and the earliest booking can be done prior to the booking date. The Number of Dates to choose will set the maximum number of days such as for a month or year.
Fourth step is the Partial Deposits Addon is added to the active list of plugins once activated. You will see it by going to Plugins > Installed Plugins. Under the Booking metabox, you will see a new tab called Partial Payments and check the “Enable Partial Payment” checkbox to accept partial payments for this product. There is a Payment type field below and has three types such as Flat Amount, Percentage and Security Deposit. (Check it here for each screenshots provided by Tyche Softwares).
Click on the save and publish button once you are done filling up the required fields.
