Security Deposit plugin This post is outdated

Hello Shopify Experts,

I run a rental business and towards that I needed a requirement where by I should be able to take a refundable deposit amount for a rental item.

I tried building this myself, but stuck at a point where the security deposit amount doesnt get added to the rental  price. Can someone please take a look and advice?

trialkings.com/ password to enter store is '12345' without quotes

Looking forward to some expert suggestions on this.

 

Regards

Hi Amit,

Thanks for chatting on the forums! 

  • For a non-code option, I would recommend using the product price as a deposit price, and make sure that you have marked that this is such on your product page (and everywhere else you need to)!
  • You could also change the name of the add to cart button to Pay deposit now, for example, and you can then take a payment using a payment gateway! This way, you can refund the amount back to the customer if you need as well- Refunding and cancelling orders
  • When your customer comes to pick up the product, they can then then pay you the balance in person!
  • I also wanted to share the create order feature in your admin, in case it might be useful for you- Creating a new order from the admin

Thanks Amit!
