Since you are responsible for shipping your products a customer can place an order via Cash on Delivery (COD) so you can receive the whole payment from the customer on-site.

So, you the vendor has to reverse pay the additional amount to admin, this is what we call “Reverse Withdrawal“.

Well, for reverse withdrawal “auto-withdrawal” payment mode is essential.

It’s nothing but the payment modes where you are going to receive payment directly from customers.

If a vendor reach this limit and not yet paid reverse payment to admin then they will not be able to withdrawal other payments from system.

Vendors will see their reverse balance at their withdrawal dashboard, also threshold limit visible there for reference.

If vendor’s withdrawal is disabled by any reason they will see warning message!

Vendors will see all stats under their ledger book as well.

Just to mention, there is no automatic payment process from Vendor to Admin, so this will be a manual process. As we are a small business please allow us a reasonable amount of time (5-7 business days) to process these request!!

Here’s how the process works:

Step 1: Vendors upon receiving orders gets the listing in order tabs, and from here they can check which order is still unpaid.

Step 2: The vendors can manually claim withdrawal by clicking on the “Withdrawal” button from Payments section here: Store Manager >> Payments

Upon clicking the withdrawal button, the vendor can submit a request to avail their earnings by selecting their order.

For added flexibility, our bookings supports Bookable Resources that can be booked independently within a bookable product. Check the Has resources checkbox to enable a new tab:

There are two types of bookable resources:

  • Customer selected – A booking form shows a dropdown list of resources that the customer can select.
  • Automatically assigned – A resource is automatically assigned to a customer booking if available.

An example use case for a customer selected resource would be a room type, such as single and twin rooms.

An example use case for an automatically assigned resource would be a hair salon where the resources are staff and someone is assigned a booking.

After enabling resources, choose your type. If you have chosen Customer selected be sure to give your resource a label. This is what is shown on the frontend booking form. Resources can be used globally across multiple products.

Categories: Booking, Shop, Stores

If the booking can be made for multiple persons at once, tick the Has persons checkbox. Once selected, a new tab appears:

Bookings has persons

You can set a min and maximum for persons. Similar to duration, the customer can input a value on the frontend booking form, if enabled.

Persons also impacts the following cost options:

  • If multiple costs by person count is enabled, all costs are multiplied by the number of persons the customer defines.
  • If count persons as bookings is enabled, the person count is used as the quantity against the block. Remember the max bookings per block setting above? That determines the upper limit for allowed persons per block. Once the limit is reached, more persons cannot book.

The Persons tab also allows you to define different prices depending on the person type. You might want to offer a different price for children or for teachers on a museum tour for example. To set up different person types, tick the Enable Persons Type checkbox in your Persons Tab:

Bookings person types

Once you tick this checkbox, you have the option to add multiple types.

Give your Person type a name and define the cost for the type. Adding a description is optional.

You can define a minimum and a maximum number for each person type. For example, you could require at least one adult for each booking while making children optional (minimum 0). If you leave Max blank, there are no other restrictions than those of the bookable product itself.

Bookings person types example

Clicking the Unlink button will remove the person type from the product. The person type will still exist, but be hidden, this is so previously created bookings are not broken.

Categories: Booking, Jobs, Shop, Stores

Costs for specific slots are controlled from the Costs tab.

The two main costs you can add are Base cost and Block cost.

  • Base cost is applied regardless of a customer’s choices on the booking form.
  • Block cost is the cost per block that was assigned in the General tab. If a customer books multiple blocks, this cost is multiplied by the number of blocks booked.

Display cost does not affect the actual cost of the product. In the example above, the product page displays 300 on the frontend. The cost is displayed to the user on the frontend. Leave blank to have it calculated for you. If a booking has varying costs, the lowest available cost is shown and is prefixed with the word “From:”

Beneath the display cost, you have an area where you can define extra costs. This works similar to availability. Click Add Range to begin:

Bookings - Add Cost Range

A row appears where you can input the range type, from/to and cost:

Bookings Cost Range Example

The from/to values differ based on the range type:

  • Date range – from/to will show a datepicker field
  • Range of months – from/to will show a dropdown of months (January to December)
  • Range of weeks – from/to will show a dropdown of weeks (1 to 52)
  • Range of days – from/to will show a dropdown of days of the week (Monday to Sunday)
  • Time range – from/to will show time inputs
  • Date range with time – set based on a custom date range
  • Persons count – from/to will show number inputs
  • Block count – from and to will show number inputs

Base cost and Block cost can be added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by the amount you enter. With version 1.10.9 (pending release), you can also directly set the costs applied for the rule.

Rows can be removed by clicking the X on the far right, or dragged and dropped to sort using the handle on the far left.

If multiple rows match, all additional costs are used.

Categories: Booking, Shop, Stores

Availability (what slots can be booked) can be controlled via the Availability tab. The first options allow you define dates that can be booked.

Max bookings per block

This setting allows multiple bookings at the same time. With a fixed booking of 1 day and maximum bookings per block set to 2, then each day you can accept two bookings.

Minimum/Maximum block bookable into the future

If today is March 1 and you set minimum block bookable to 1 month into the future, then the first date a customer could book would be April 1. The same applies to the maximum date bookable.

Require a buffer period between bookings

Based on the unit of time set for the booking (minutes, hours or days), you can specify a period of time after a bookable slot that is unavailable for anyone else to book. For example, if you sell appointments in 1-hour blocks and wish to have a break of 1 hour between them, you can specify a buffer period.

If you prefer to add a buffer before and after your appointments, tick the Adjacent Buffering checkbox. This option adds the specified block both before and after each booking. Defining a buffer period of one hour between booking with adjacent buffering will result into 2 hours between bookings.

Categories: Booking, Stores

If the booking needs to be reviewed by an Admin before confirmation, check the Requires confirmation? checkbox. Rather than take payment at checkout, the user inputs details and submits them for approval.

Bookings requiring approval will remove other items from the cart. They must be checked out alone, so payment gateways can be safely disabled.

If the Requires Confirmation? checkbox is ticked:

  • the Check Availability option will be the only payment gateway presented when checking out
  • other items will be removed from the Cart when this bookable product is added to the Cart

Once the booking is approved, the customer receives another email to then submit payment.

Cancellation

You may choose whether you want the user to have the option to cancel their booking. After selecting the option Can be cancelled?, two fields appear that allow you to choose how many Minutes/Hours/Days/Months prior to the start date that customers can cancel a booking.

Categories: Booking, Stores

This determines how long a booking lasts. The duration can be admin defined (fixed block) or customer defined (they need to input on the front-end). Duration units can be Hours, Minutes, Days or Months.

Fixed blocks have a set duration that you define. The customer can only choose one block which will last the defined amount of time. For example hair dresser appointment lasts one hour and you can only book one at a time.

Customer-defined blocks have a set duration, but the customer can choose how many blocks they want. For example, the studio space is rented out in hourly intervals, and the customer can define how many 1-hour blocks they would like to rent.

If you set your Booking duration to be customer defined:

  • A minimum and maximum allowed value can be included in the General tab. This allows for a more flexible starting schedule.
  • It is possible to use 30-minute blocks and set the minimum to 2 blocks. Your customers now need to book at least one hour, and can add increments of 30 minutes.
  • A customer-defined duration with blocks in minutes/hours will display a dropdown.

Calendar display mode

Select Calendar always visible or Display calendar on click. By default the calendar is set to always show.

If the Booking duration is set to be Customer defined with a unit of Days, then another option will be shown to enable the calendar range picker. Enabling this allows customers to select a start date and an end date for their booking within the calendar itself.

Categories: Booking, Stores

To accept bookings, you need to create a bookable product.

  1. Go to: Products > Add New. An interface for product creation appears.
  2. Enter a title and description for your product.
  3. Scroll down to Product Data and select Bookable Product in the dropdown menu
  4. Tick the Virtual checkbox, if your product does not require shipping. This omits the Shipping Costs tab from your product.

For added flexibility, our bookings supports Bookable Resources that can be booked independently within a bookable product. Check the Has resources checkbox to enable a new tab:

There are two types of bookable resources:

  • Customer selected – A booking form shows a dropdown list of resources that the customer can select.
  • Automatically assigned – A resource is automatically assigned to a customer booking if available.

An example use case for a customer selected resource would be a room type, such as single and twin rooms.

An example use case for an automatically assigned resource would be a hair salon where the resources are staff and someone is assigned a booking.

After enabling resources, choose your type. If you have chosen Customer selected be sure to give your resource a label. This is what is shown on the frontend booking form. Resources can be used globally across multiple products.

What is Reverse Withdrawal?

Since you are responsible for shipping your products a customer can place an order via Cash on Delivery (COD) so you can receive the whole payment from the customer on-site.

So, you the vendor has to reverse pay the additional amount to admin, this is what we call “Reverse Withdrawal“.

Well, for reverse withdrawal “auto-withdrawal” payment mode is essential.

What is “auto-withdrawal” payment methods?

It’s nothing but the payment modes where you are going to receive payment directly from customers.

If a vendor reach this limit and not yet paid reverse payment to admin then they will not be able to withdrawal other payments from system.

Vendors will see their reverse balance at their withdrawal dashboard, also threshold limit visible there for reference.

If vendor’s withdrawal is disabled by any reason they will see warning message!

Vendors will see all stats under their ledger book as well.

Just to mention, there is no automatic payment process from Vendor to Admin, so this will be a manual process. As we are a small business please allow us a reasonable amount of time (5-7 business days) to process these request!!

Categories: Account, Booking, Events, Jobs, Shop, Stores

Here’s how the process works:

Step 1: Vendors upon receiving orders gets the listing in order tabs, and from here they can check which order is still unpaid.

Step 2: The vendors can manually claim withdrawal by clicking on the “Withdrawal” button from Payments section here: Store Manager >> Payments

Upon clicking the withdrawal button, the vendor can submit a request to avail their earnings by selecting their order.

Once the request is submitted, the admin get the notification of the request and will be able to process the payments.

Step 3: Admin receives the request received by vendors and they can view it here: Store Manager >> Withdrawal.  From here the admin will be able to ‘approve’ or ‘reject’ the withdrawal request sent by the vendor and also add a note along with their action.

It will take less than 5 minutes for any seller to setup their store.

Whenever a vendor logs in for the first to their store it will have a “Store Setup” widget.

This will give them option to setup store essential setting at the very beginning.

If any vendor skipped setup widget or want to change any store setting in future then they can do this easily from their dashboard as well.

Just go to Store Manager -> Settings

For added flexibility, our bookings supports Bookable Resources that can be booked independently within a bookable product. Check the Has resources checkbox to enable a new tab:

There are two types of bookable resources:

  • Customer selected – A booking form shows a dropdown list of resources that the customer can select.
  • Automatically assigned – A resource is automatically assigned to a customer booking if available.

An example use case for a customer selected resource would be a room type, such as single and twin rooms.

An example use case for an automatically assigned resource would be a hair salon where the resources are staff and someone is assigned a booking.

After enabling resources, choose your type. If you have chosen Customer selected be sure to give your resource a label. This is what is shown on the frontend booking form. Resources can be used globally across multiple products.

Categories: Booking, Shop, Stores

If the booking can be made for multiple persons at once, tick the Has persons checkbox. Once selected, a new tab appears:

Bookings has persons

You can set a min and maximum for persons. Similar to duration, the customer can input a value on the frontend booking form, if enabled.

Persons also impacts the following cost options:

  • If multiple costs by person count is enabled, all costs are multiplied by the number of persons the customer defines.
  • If count persons as bookings is enabled, the person count is used as the quantity against the block. Remember the max bookings per block setting above? That determines the upper limit for allowed persons per block. Once the limit is reached, more persons cannot book.

The Persons tab also allows you to define different prices depending on the person type. You might want to offer a different price for children or for teachers on a museum tour for example. To set up different person types, tick the Enable Persons Type checkbox in your Persons Tab:

Bookings person types

Once you tick this checkbox, you have the option to add multiple types.

Give your Person type a name and define the cost for the type. Adding a description is optional.

You can define a minimum and a maximum number for each person type. For example, you could require at least one adult for each booking while making children optional (minimum 0). If you leave Max blank, there are no other restrictions than those of the bookable product itself.

Bookings person types example

Clicking the Unlink button will remove the person type from the product. The person type will still exist, but be hidden, this is so previously created bookings are not broken.

Costs for specific slots are controlled from the Costs tab.

The two main costs you can add are Base cost and Block cost.

  • Base cost is applied regardless of a customer’s choices on the booking form.
  • Block cost is the cost per block that was assigned in the General tab. If a customer books multiple blocks, this cost is multiplied by the number of blocks booked.

Display cost does not affect the actual cost of the product. In the example above, the product page displays 300 on the frontend. The cost is displayed to the user on the frontend. Leave blank to have it calculated for you. If a booking has varying costs, the lowest available cost is shown and is prefixed with the word “From:”

Beneath the display cost, you have an area where you can define extra costs. This works similar to availability. Click Add Range to begin:

Bookings - Add Cost Range

A row appears where you can input the range type, from/to and cost:

Bookings Cost Range Example

The from/to values differ based on the range type:

  • Date range – from/to will show a datepicker field
  • Range of months – from/to will show a dropdown of months (January to December)
  • Range of weeks – from/to will show a dropdown of weeks (1 to 52)
  • Range of days – from/to will show a dropdown of days of the week (Monday to Sunday)
  • Time range – from/to will show time inputs
  • Date range with time – set based on a custom date range
  • Persons count – from/to will show number inputs
  • Block count – from and to will show number inputs

Base cost and Block cost can be added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by the amount you enter. With version 1.10.9 (pending release), you can also directly set the costs applied for the rule.

Rows can be removed by clicking the X on the far right, or dragged and dropped to sort using the handle on the far left.

If multiple rows match, all additional costs are used.

Availability (what slots can be booked) can be controlled via the Availability tab. The first options allow you define dates that can be booked.

Max bookings per block

This setting allows multiple bookings at the same time. With a fixed booking of 1 day and maximum bookings per block set to 2, then each day you can accept two bookings.

Minimum/Maximum block bookable into the future

If today is March 1 and you set minimum block bookable to 1 month into the future, then the first date a customer could book would be April 1. The same applies to the maximum date bookable.

Require a buffer period between bookings

Based on the unit of time set for the booking (minutes, hours or days), you can specify a period of time after a bookable slot that is unavailable for anyone else to book. For example, if you sell appointments in 1-hour blocks and wish to have a break of 1 hour between them, you can specify a buffer period.

If you prefer to add a buffer before and after your appointments, tick the Adjacent Buffering checkbox. This option adds the specified block both before and after each booking. Defining a buffer period of one hour between booking with adjacent buffering will result into 2 hours between bookings.

Categories: Booking, Stores

If the booking needs to be reviewed by an Admin before confirmation, check the Requires confirmation? checkbox. Rather than take payment at checkout, the user inputs details and submits them for approval.

Bookings requiring approval will remove other items from the cart. They must be checked out alone, so payment gateways can be safely disabled.

If the Requires Confirmation? checkbox is ticked:

  • the Check Availability option will be the only payment gateway presented when checking out
  • other items will be removed from the Cart when this bookable product is added to the Cart

Once the booking is approved, the customer receives another email to then submit payment.

Cancellation

You may choose whether you want the user to have the option to cancel their booking. After selecting the option Can be cancelled?, two fields appear that allow you to choose how many Minutes/Hours/Days/Months prior to the start date that customers can cancel a booking.

Categories: Booking, Stores

This determines how long a booking lasts. The duration can be admin defined (fixed block) or customer defined (they need to input on the front-end). Duration units can be Hours, Minutes, Days or Months.

Fixed blocks have a set duration that you define. The customer can only choose one block which will last the defined amount of time. For example hair dresser appointment lasts one hour and you can only book one at a time.

Customer-defined blocks have a set duration, but the customer can choose how many blocks they want. For example, the studio space is rented out in hourly intervals, and the customer can define how many 1-hour blocks they would like to rent.

If you set your Booking duration to be customer defined:

  • A minimum and maximum allowed value can be included in the General tab. This allows for a more flexible starting schedule.
  • It is possible to use 30-minute blocks and set the minimum to 2 blocks. Your customers now need to book at least one hour, and can add increments of 30 minutes.
  • A customer-defined duration with blocks in minutes/hours will display a dropdown.

Calendar display mode

Select Calendar always visible or Display calendar on click. By default the calendar is set to always show.

If the Booking duration is set to be Customer defined with a unit of Days, then another option will be shown to enable the calendar range picker. Enabling this allows customers to select a start date and an end date for their booking within the calendar itself.

Categories: Booking, Stores

To accept bookings, you need to create a bookable product.

  1. Go to: Products > Add New. An interface for product creation appears.
  2. Enter a title and description for your product.
  3. Scroll down to Product Data and select Bookable Product in the dropdown menu
  4. Tick the Virtual checkbox, if your product does not require shipping. This omits the Shipping Costs tab from your product.
