This article will provide details on how to take bonds. A bond will allow you to add an additional product to the cart that has a set fee. Depending on your store's policy, you can refund the bond after the booking ends. The bond feature is only available when using booking widgets and available for Premium and up app subscribers.
Note: a bond adds an additional amount to the product cost, in the form of an additional product, that can be refunded after the booking ends. In contrast, a deposit allows you to charge a partial amount upfront and the remainder at the time of booking. If you need to create a deposit instead of a bond select the following link.
