    Shopify doesn't support the concept of a deposit currently but you have a couple of options:

    1. Include the deposit as part of the rental price and do a partial refund when the item is returned.

    2. Do some custom coding to include an extra 'deposit' product item in the cart which can then be refunded later.

    Hi, thank you for quick reply. Is it possible to make the deposit automatically included in every booking as a separate item?

    Yes - that is the same as option 2.

    Is there a code that will show the deposit amount only when they add the item to their cart and want to check out? Can the deposit amount change with the variant? Where can I find this code?

    Hi Ambrosia,

    Here is some sample code to give you an idea. This would go in cart.liquid.

    In this case it is adding a Delivery product to the cart for every booking product. You could substitute that for a Deposit product.

    Thanks, Gavin.

    Has anyone successfully implemented a deposit? If so, what did your process look like?

    I see the sample code given and it says to add to cart.liquid. Where in the line code do I add this. I have tried multiple times and cannot get this to work. I want a simple deposit like Vanda Dance above. Set deposit price that is the same for all items. Every time you add an item, the set deposit is added.

    Hi Nicholas

    Adding a deposit requires theme customization and the location in the theme would differ for each theme. We've provided some sample code to get you started, but we don't provide support for theme customization as part of our no charge support.  If you would like a quote on adding this theme customization please email support@zeyta.com.

    Thanks
