    Is there a way to add a "Deposit" field to an Order Form?

    Asked by bushwood on November 02, 2012 at 09:49 AM

    I am trying to create an order form where buyers can choose several items then pay just a deposit, and have a balance due. For example, we sell websites and only charge a deposit up front, but we need to list all the optional line items on the order form. I tried putting in a negative number in the price field for "Deposit" and got an error message about that.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks very much!

    Unfortunately, such option is not available as of the moment . However, I think you should create two separate forms. One of the initial deposit payment, and one for the balance.
    If you will make recurring payments another possible solution might be to use the "Setup Fee" feature on the Payment Wizard.
    Let us know if there's anything else that you require assistance with.
