  1. Layaway Option

    Layaway option for products:

    In addition to the "Add to Cart" button, have a "Add to Layaway" option where the customer can reserve the item for a portion of the total cost, as downpayment. Then mark the item as "Layaway" so no one else can buy it. Allow the customer to make additional payments later on. Once the customer pays the full amount, take the product off layaway, and proceed with the normal order processing on the backend.

    Additional functionality:
    - require the customer be signed in to take advantage of the feature
    - optionally add a financing cost or…

    • Support Payment in full *before* a date

      I'm using the Bookings Extension and my project sometimes requires a 50% payment up front, then the rest of the payment x days or weeks prior to the actual date of the booking. With the current system, there is no way for me to fulfill this use case.

      • Add the ability to choose pay in full as default - woocommerce deposits plugin

        I have just purchased this plugin to offer pay in full and payment plan options on some products in the woocommerce store - the plugin defaults to the payment plan with no way to choose pay in full as the default behaviour. This makes no sense as most store owners would want to take full payment if possible, but have payment plans as an option.

        I managed to hack the plugin so that it changed the default behaviour, but I would not have expected to have to change code in a premium pay for plugin for such simple functionality.

        • Deposits - Wording / Payments Method / Cash on Delivery

          Currently when choosing to pay a deposit on check out it states,

          x amount due
          x amount Future payments,

          It would be great to enable the balance to paid as cash on delivery

          • Allow Deposits for Bookings plugin

            I would like it so that I could allow clients to make partial payments or a deposit for reservations for Bookings. I don't think that this is currently possible. This may complicate things also since you'd need the option for a non-refundable amount and that amount refunded could be based on the time before the reservation. For example if someone cancels a week in advance then they may lose 10% of their deposit, but if it were just a day before then they would lose 100% of their deposit. Also, you'd need to be able to cancel that booking to…

            • DEPOSITS AT THE *CART* LEVEL

              While deposits at the product level are great, it is even more necessary for customers to be able to fill a cart with products to be purchased and then make a deposit and payment arrangements for the CART TOTAL.

              That would be very, very helpful.

              • WooCommerce 'Cart Total' Deposits

                We wanted the plugin to allow the user to pay a percentage or fixed amount of the FULL CART TOTAL not per product.

                We don't want a per product deposit we are looking for a cart total deposit.

                There was a plugin that did this but it seems it conflicts with woo commerce recent updates.
                http://woodeposits.com/plugins/ - if you try and order you will see 'Out Of Stock' that have stopped selling it.

                Can you not adjust the plugin to allow admin to set option to allow the customer to pay a part payment to secure the full order of…

                • Manual Deposit

                  It would be very helpful if you could manually add or amend deposits. This is required if you use offline payment gateways like EFT and the payment value varies to the order value. Another instance is if you manually add/amend orders after they customer has processed the payment - you could amend/add the deposit total.

                  • Save Credit Card Info via Payment Gateway and Force Charge Remaining Balance

                    I want to make sure there is a way to securely charge a customer their remaining balance without having them manually having to do it.
                    I'm looking to avoid the scenario where they pay for the initial 1st half and then either take their sweet time getting to the 2nd half or avoiding all together in which case creates major issues on our end.

                    I asked about this sort of feature a year ago and someone at Woocommerce mentioned saving credit card info was on the road map but with no ETA. I feel like this sort of feature is…

                    • Pay anytime on payment plans

                      We utilize the deposits and payment plans plugin. However, currently customers can't login to pay off their payment plan early. They have to wait for a monthly invoice delivered by email which usually ends up in their spam folder. We we would like customers to have the ability to pay off their payment plan at any time.

                      • Fixed Amount (not percentage) on payment plan for Deposits

                        Add another Payment Plan type that will allow the deposit and optionally subsequent payments to be entered as fixed amounts rather than percentages. Any product options (discounts or fees) would get calculated into the final 'Remainder Due' payment.

                          Currently, deposits aren't available with product bundles which makes it impossible to adjust the default global settings which is to inherit site-wide deposit settings.

                            As of now the plugin only allows coupons to remove from the initial payment.. Say deposit is 10% of 100.. It only will remove $2 from a 20% coupon. Not $20!

                              It would be nice if you could set up payment plan for purchase items. Much like subscriptions but at the purchase level and not the product level. You should be able to flag a product and/or variation to not accept payment plans too.

                              Example: A customer has a couple of items in their cart. They go to checkout and then are able to select to pay all at that moment, or select other time based options.

                              Subscriptions can do this but only at the product level. If you have a product with multiple variations and you want to add 3…

                                • Deposits Plugin - Required Capability

                                  I am disappointed to learn after buying this premium plugin that it fails to calculate discounts and or coupons prior to calculating payment schedule. So what ends up happening is I will have a $995 item discounted with coupon to say $500. So one would think that when the customer puts their deposit down (say $100) the plugin would calculate that only $400 is due. Not the case, rather the plugin calculates the remaining payments first, then applies the coupon to the first payment leaving, in this scanario, $895 due. This make the $179 plugin useless.

                                  Plugin needs to calculate…

                                  • WooCommerce Deposits - Make an option to toggle the default payment option

                                    Make an option to toggle which option is the default method for payments. Right now, deposits is the preselected default method. There should be an option to make "Pay in Full" the default method. Customers are confused and paying a deposit when they mean to pay in full. (customers are sometimes not that bright, unfortunately).

                                    • Allow Filtering of Deposit Plugin Text

                                      I was surprised to find there is no filter available for the text that is displayed on the front end for deposits. In order to override the text I would need to setup a whole translation file just for this, use the 'Say What?' plugin or hack some javascript. A very simple solution would be to add a filter to lines 112 and 114 of /woocommerce-deposits/includes/class-wc-deposits-product-manager.php

                                      You could, for example replace lines 111-114 as such:
                                      $description_raw = ( 'percent' === $type ) ? __( 'Pay a %1$s deposit per %2$s', 'woocommerce-deposits' ) : __( 'Pay a deposit of %1$s per…

                                      • Compatibility between WooCommerce Deposits and Composite Products

                                        WooCommerce Deposits isn't currently compatible with Composite Products. It would be brilliant if this could be further developed so that the deposits plugin can be used on sites which have composite products.

                                        • Include payment link in deposit receipt email and invoice email

                                          When a customer pays a deposit and has a remaining balance due they should receive a link they can use to pay their remaining balance. This should be included in their deposit receipt email as well as the invoice email.
