I'm looking for some advice please. I'm just setting up my shopify store and looking into payment options. I have a rental service based business, where people hire equipment for an evening. I have set up a booking system where people can select the day they wish to hire and now I'd like to take a set fee when people book the date as a sort of 'security deposit' - and then collect the remaining payment 14 days before their booking date.
So, my question: is there a way to advertise a product at a certain price but then only take a percentage of that price upfront when people book? A sort of partial payment? And if so, how is the final payment then taken? Is there an app that allows to schedule payment dates automatically?
