Partial or Deposit payment

islandmixislandmix Member Posts: 1
My current niche market requires that customer has option to pay a DEPOSIT and subsequent payments until item is paid in full by a certain deadline. Does this system have this option. Or even just allow for an initial payment and then allow user to log back in and complete payment at later date?

I guess this would be similar to a layaway concept which is mentioned on the site but no details of the concept is provided.

    There is no built-in feature that allows for deposits or partial payments. The order always needs to be paid in full.
    There is a workaround where you change the online price to the deposit amount. It would be a matter of changing the product description and template to convey to the shopper that they are paying the deposit and that the remaining amount will be charged at a later date.
    The remaining amount will need to be charged using a new invoice, which can be created from the eCom back office, using Quotes. You can also charge the remaining from the Retail POS if needed.
    Lay-a-ways can only be created within Retail and are not part of eCom.
    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any further questions.
