    Hello, we want customers to pay at least a deposit if they are booking long in advance. So we’re using the payment option to pay a deposit if more than xx days in advance.

    But some of our customers might want to pay the full amount at once. Is it possible to allow the customer to choose on the booking page whether to pay a deposit or full amount?

    Hello Emanuel,

    So far there is no such option in the Hotel Booking, however, we do have such a feature request and I have added your up-vote to it. The request has not been quite popular so far, however, if there are more similar requests from other users, we will consider adding this feature to one of the plugin future updates.
    Meanwhile, you may use our Payment Request add-on for Hotel Booking and send out the payment link to such Guests to pay the remaining balance due once the deposit is paid (in case they want to have the full amount paid at once).

    Regards,
    Andre

    Upvote.

    This is a key feature that will add genuine value and better customer interaction.

    1. Build a timeline control feature that will allow for automated closure of the deposit option. for example it makes no sense to take a deposit 2 days before booking.

    2. Build a option for the customer to move from the default deposit to paying full amount if he so wishes.

    3. The hotel payment request add on is great but need the above automation to be smarter and less manual in todays world.

    I do not think the feature would be very hard for your developers to add.

    Hello Walter,

    Thank you for the up-vote and your suggestions, it is much appreciated. As for the point 1, there is already an option to apply deposit to bookings made in at least X number of days prior to the check-in date. Otherwise, the full amount is charged. It is available in the Hotel Booking starting from v. 3.8.3.

    Regards,
    Andre
