    I do meal prep and require a deposit at the time the order is placed. How do I set it up where 50% is due at the time the order is placed and the remaining portion due the day before orders are picked up? I am using Square as my payment method I see an algorithm on the develop side but I'm unsure as to how I go about plugging it in.

    Thank you for reaching out, Andre.

    I do not believe we have options to allow for a setup like this at this time. However, you can enable Payment authorization, which will allow you to charge the full amount within six days.

    To enable authorization, please see this guide: How to Enable Payment Authorization.

    Additionally, I have opened a feature request to see if incremental payments can be enabled for Square and the Product List. While I cannot make any guarantees for if or when it will be implemented, rest assured you will be notified here if there are any updates.

    We appreciate your patience!

    I have watched the video on the links you have posted; however, it doesn't tell me how I am able to set up a deposit now and a payment later. Are there other videos that address this or instructions that walk you through it? Is it even a possibility or is holding the charge until you manually submit it the only option?
