Leaving a deposit to book an interesting product and paying the balance later taking your time: we all did it at least once, isn’t it true? Dynamics do not change: customers see a product in your e-commerce, they want it, but for various reasons they cannot purchase in that precise moment (generally because they do not have enough money available). And so, what happens?
It happens that those customers leave the shop. Unless you give them the opportunity to book the product and leave a deposit, so that they can be sure that, thanks to that down payment, the wished product becomes their own and it will not be sold to others.

Set a fixed amount for the deposit


Choose until when the deposit is valid

And make it expire if the balance is not paid in time

Allow email notifications for both users and admin

When a deposit is paid and when it is going to expire

Force users to pay the balance on site

Even if they have paid the deposit online


Use custom labels for buttons

So you can choose the perfect text for your site

Add notes to products in the shop

To add useful information

Configure the deposit on variable products

By setting different parameters for each variation available for the product

Set a specific deposit expiration date for each product

If deposit is not completed before this date, the deposit will expire

Decide what will happen with the product after expiration date

Hide from catalog, no longer for sale, disable deposit, or nothing

Set rules to calculate automatically the deposit amount

Per product or per category
