If you have Collins Pay set-up on your system and take auto-confirm bookings you can take deposits at the point of making a booking.
>Click on a Booking Type
>Scroll down to "Customer Payments"
>Click “Add Another” and enter all the relevant details.
To take a deposit the 'Type' needs to be set as ‘Payment’ (you can also choose to authenticate here instead if you wish) and you can choose whether to charge per guest, per booking or per table/area. If taking payment for tables/areas (often used for table tennis/pool tables etc) make sure the correct table combinations are setup in the joined tables/areas section. If happy for the rules to follow the auto-confirm rules already pre-set in the auto-confirm section, leave the remaining fields blank. If there are specific times days/dates/times and durations where you would like to take payment, fill out the remaining fields fully and click Save.
Please Note: You will need to set-up 'Auto-confirm Rules' and 'Areas for this Booking Type' for the system to be able to take deposits on bookings.
