Some items we'd like to sell have deposits for the containers they are delivered in. it's not a rental, there is no fee for the items use. I just need to be able to charge a deposit that can be easily refunded when the container is returned or not if it isn't returned. The apps I'm finding are for splitting payments for a single item. If there's a way to make a single item purchase show and bill as two items where I can refund the one separately I'm not seeing it.
Any help would be appreciated.
we do support the above scenario through 'Deposit flow' in Depo(https://apps.shopify.com/deposits-split-payments).
We also have a tutorial on how to set it up for your flow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N27seyV021E&t=1s
Do let us know if you need help with setup. You can reach us out here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have lots of customers using our app to charge the deposit. It adds as a separate product and then when the customer brings it back they refund that one item off their invoice.
