Collecting a Balance

You may have purchases with open balances for a number of reasons.

  • A purchase was made using deposit workflows from either your website or your back office.
  • A purchase was made via the back office using the "Pay Later" payment method.
  • A purchase was made via the back office using a credit card, but with the "Do not charge card now" box ticked.
  • An online booking was manually accepted with the "Do not charge card now" option selected.
  • A purchase has had additional charges added or modifications made (ie, adjusting guest count, adding a charge, or switching experiences) , but payment for those has not yet been collected.

All collection of open balances is manual and can be initiated at your discretion.
