There are a lot of settings and controls over this online storefront and they can be found in the Admin section. From the Admin Menu, click Configuration and choose Front End Configuration.
If you do accept credit cards are set up to be able to collect credit card payments within Essentials, then you can specify how much money the customer pays to hold their reservation. This can either be as a specific amount of money or a percentage of the whole reservation.
If you have inventory items that have individual deposits (please see our Adding New Inventory help document to see where to include these deposits), you can also specify how much of the deposit is due at the time of the reservation when a customer reserves online.
*NOTE: You will only get the questions about credit cards and payment if you have a credit card processor integrated into your site. Otherwise, they will be grayed out. We have preferred credit card processors. Please Click Here to learn more on what processors we prefer along with how to get you started.
If you have or could possibly have coupon codes for discounts and they're set up, you can choose to allow the customer to add these on the storefront. (*Please see our Coupons document on how to set those up.)
