If your customers request a reservation online, you can impose a minimum deposit for guest counts over a certain number, e.g. $5 per person for reservations of 15 people and more.
This deposit will be taken as soon as a customer places the request for their reservation.
Set up deposits
- Go to Reservations > Reservation Sessions
- Click Settings
- Enter the Minimum Guest To Charge Deposit.
- Enter the required Deposit per Guest. Alternatively, you could fill in a Deposit per Reservation if you want the deposit amount to be the same regardless of the number of guests.
- Click Save.
When placing a reservation online, your customer will be prompted to enter their card details for any reservation that requires a deposit.
