Enable deposits for purchase of your products and you will not risk losing many customers who cannot purchase outright
Leaving a deposit to book an interesting product and paying the balance later taking your time: we all did it at least once, isn’t it true? Dynamics do not change: customers see a product in your e-commerce, they want it, but for various reasons they cannot purchase in that precise moment (generally because they do not have enough money available). And so, what happens?
It happens that those customers leave the shop. Unless you give them the opportunity to book the product and leave a deposit, so that they can be sure that, thanks to that down payment, the wished product becomes their own and it will not be sold to others.
The plugin YITH WooCommerce Deposit and Down Payments can turn out to be an ace up your sleeve for your shop, especially if you sell middle- or high-cost products: certainly, the higher the price of your products the easier you can lose customers because they cannot pay the total amount immediately.
More than a reliable plugin, a guarantee: let your customers leave a deposit and, besides loyalise them, you’ll see your shop conversion rate increase.

Here you can find some frequently asked questions about this plugin. If you can't find a reply to your doubts, ask a question: we will reply in a very short time
Is it possible to automatically refund the deposit after expiration?
Yes, if you have set the option "refund deposit for product" and the user paid using PayPal, the paid amount will be refunded automatically and the order status will switch to “refunded”. You can check the settings in this page of the documentation.
Can the deposit be paid automatically?
No, even if PayPal or a Credit Card was used in the initial payment, it is not possible to automatically charge the customer for the second payment.
Does it support variable products?
Yes, the plugin supports variable products. This allows asking for a different deposit for each product variation and also enabling/forcing the deposit on specific variations of a product.
Can I set deposits by user roles?
Yes, you can set up a custom deposit for each role and either choose from a fixed amount or a percentage.
With orders including more than one deposit payment, can I create one request for payment or each payment for product needs to be paid separately?
If customers add more than one deposit-enabled product to the cart, they will be able to check out just once. Yet, the plugin has an option that lets you choose from creating separated balances or only one.
Does the plugin support installment payments?
No, installment payments are not provided by the plugin. It allows users to leave a deposit and pay the balance at a later time.
Does the plugin send out an email to the customer which includes a link to pay the remainder of the product cost amount after the deposit has been applied?
Yes, the plugin sends two emails: the first, as soon as the deposit order is completed. It includes all the items paid with the deposit and a link to the page to pay the balance. The second is sent a specific number of days before the expiration date if you have enabled the deposit expiration.
Is it possible to set the expiration date of the second payment?
Yes, you can set an expiration date through the plugin options. Moreover, the expiration can be configured also at the product level. Yet, within that time range, customers can complete the payment at any time.
Can customers use any payment methods for the deposit/balance payment?
Yes, they can use any payment method available in your store and supported by WooCommerce.
Can I show a deposit option on the cart or checkout page?.
No, unfortunately, it is not possible at the moment. It is only possible to choose the deposit option on the product page.
Can I offer a discount to customers who pay up-front and full price to those who pay with a deposit?
Yes, of course, you can. To do that, you can create a variable product with two variations: one variation for up-front payment, offered at the discounted price and one variation with deposit option enabled at full price.
What happens after deposit expiration?
The plugin offers two options, the deposit expires:
After some days from its creation
On a specific date.
Selecting option one, you can choose to apply no action or refund the deposit for the product. In case you have set option 2; an expiration for a specific date, you can choose from:
Make item no longer purchasable
Hide item from catalog visibility
All these options are explained on this page of the documentation here.
