I have some guests who would like to book really far out and for those, I like to do a three-payment. A deposit at the time of booking, then another payment 30 days later and their final payment 30 days before arrival. I can't seem to figure out how to set up an automation to make that happen.
I've searched the forums for a step by step workflow, to no avail.
You can't do that automatically at the moment, but you can do it manually. Set up the deposit amount as you want it and have the guest book. Then after they book, go to the booking > transactions tab > scheduled transcations and fix that to add/remove the extra transactions you want in the future. You can set up as many as you want.
