How to add payments to an existing booking
We know not all bookings are the same, sometimes a guest pays on the spot or pays deposit and the remainder later. This article will walk you through changing a bookings' payment status.
Why would I need to add a payment to an existing booking?
You can create a booking without adding the payment right away, for example, using the create booking tool and selecting the pay later option. This may be used for bookings that have been previously agreed on and will be paid in bulk, bookings that have been manually imported using our import sheet or similar.
In order to have a reserved booking that will only be confirmed once paid, we recommend using the payment links feature instead.
