Allow your customers to leave a deposit for your products and services and pay the remaining balance later
Putting down a deposit to hold a product and paying the remainder at a later date: I think that’s something that’s occurred to all of us at least once, right? The procedure is straightforward: a consumer sees a product on your e-commerce platform and wants to reserve it because they do not want to lose out on the deal, or they want to be sure that you will keep it accessible for them, but they are unable to pay the whole amount right once.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the most recent iPhone model that hasn’t been released to the public yet, the ideal present for a friend who will be celebrating her birthday the following month, or a painting by an artist that’s on sale for fifty percent off: if a customer is unable to pay for the entire amount right away, they have no choice but to either delay the purchase or give it up.
As a consequence, you lose sales and potential consumers. Unless you decide to provide users the opportunity to reserve items and services by paying a deposit and paying the whole balance at a later date, this option will not be available.
If you sell moderately priced to high-priced products and want to make them affordable to a wider range of users, the plugin YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments can make the difference in your e-commerce business. The higher the product prices are, the easier it is to lose all of those customers that cannot pay for the total amount at once.
Do you have our YITH Booking & Appointment plugin installed on your website? With the help of the specialised integration, you will be able to provide your clients the option to pay a down payment when they make a reservation (for an apartment, a trip, legal assistance, etc.), and then give them the freedom to decide when they will pay the remaining balance (e.g. three days before the booking start date).
Enable the deposit option on all of your products or only on specific items
By selecting the global settings, you have the choice of enabling the deposit function across the entirety of the shop, or you can choose to allow the deposit to be paid exclusively for certain goods or categories. You also have the option of configuring ad hoc settings for product variants.
Choose whether to set the deposit as required or optional
Give your consumers the option of paying the full price right away or only the deposit, or force them to pay the deposit before they may purchase any of your items.
Set the deposit amount
You have the option of asking for a fixed sum (such as $50) or a percentage value (such as 20% of the product price), so you may set the amount that will be required as a deposit.
Create rules to define different deposit values for specific products or categories
You may override the global amount by developing more complex rules and establishing unique values for certain items or categories. You may, for instance, ask for a deposit of ten dollars on a product that costs ten dollars or less, but one hundred dollars on a product that costs one hundred dollars or more.
Choose how to manage the balance orders
Choose whether you want your customers to be required to pay for the balance on your online shop (which will automatically produce the order) or if you want to prevent WooCommerce orders from being made so that you may manually manage payments outside of the e-commerce platform (for example, by letting your customers pay cash in a physical store).
Choose if and when the balance order has to be paid for
You have the ability to choose the day and time that the payment must be made in the event that you want the order’s balance to be paid for online and through WooCommerce. You have the option of setting a particular date by selecting it from the calendar (for example, the balance order must be paid by the 10th of December), or you may choose to establish a time period that begins when the deposit is paid for (e.g. the balance order has to be paid within the 90 days following the product reservation).
Integration with YITH Stripe: automatically charge the customer’s credit card for the balance order
When you use this plugin in conjunction with our YITH WooCommerce Stripe plugin, you will be able to automatically charge the customer’s remaining balance to the credit card that was used by the customer to pay for the deposit. With the help of this tool, you’ll be able to streamline the purchasing process and reduce the amount of delinquent orders.
Choose the action to apply if the balance order is not paid for
Do you ask clients to pay for the rest of their orders, but they don’t comply with your request? You have the option of sending a reminder, reimbursing the deposit immediately, or cancelling the transaction without receiving a reimbursement for your efforts.
