Elementor

The two plugins are fully compatible, but how to combine them? Let’s see what you can do.

You can use the basic “Add to cart” widget provided with Elementor also for bookable products, and so stylize the product page with Elementor.

To use it the right way, make sure you set the option you will have to set the “Booking Form Position” to “Default” from YITH > Booking > Settings > Booking Forms.

Then, use Elementor Product Add to Cart widget to place the booking selection form wherever you want on the product page.

YITH Deposits / Down Payments allows your customers to split an order payment, leave a deposit and pay the balance at a later time.

Thanks to the integration with YITH Booking, you can enable the deposit option for all your bookable products and offer users the chance to pay for the booking in two installments.

Please note: it’s not possible to add a deposit option to bookable products with “confirmation request” enabled.

After installing and activating both plugins, two additional options will be added to the required balance payment settings.

Require balance for bookable products

When enabling the option Require balance payment to customers, you can decide if the balance has to be paid:

  • On the booking start date: by selecting this option, the balance payment will be required based on the booking start date chosen by the customer when booking your products/services;

Require balance payment on booking start date

  • On a specific time range before the booking start date: by selecting this option, the balance payment will be required a specific number of days before the booking starts.

Require balance payment before the booking start date

Example of a booking with deposit

We offer 3 apartments for summer holidays and want our customers to only pay a 50% deposit when booking their stay and pay the remaining balance 7 days before their arrival. Moreover, we want the balance payment to be charged automatically on customers’ credit cards.

First of all, we create a product category rule for the deposit on our apartments.Create a depsoti rule for bookable products

Since we sell other types of products with a deposit on our site, we go to the bookable product edit pages to override the global deposit settings and select the option Forced: users can only pay the deposit amount.

Force deposit on bookable product

Now we override the global balance settings to require the balance payment 7 days before the booking start date.

Require balance payment before booking start date

Finally, to automatically charge the balance payment on customers’ credit cards, we have installed YITH WooCommerce Stripe and configured the settings in Stripe options as shown below.

This is what the booking form looks like when our customers will book one of our apartments.

YITH Multi Currency Switcher

With YITH Multi Currency Switcher for WooCommerce you can enable a multi-currency system in your shop and let your users see and pay for products in their own local currency.

The integration with YITH Multi Currency Switcher allows your user to see the price of a bookable product in their own currency without any issue: the plugin will automatically convert the amount in the default currency.

Note: You cannot set fixed prices for each currency, for Bookable products, since for bookable products, the “exchage” calculation is made through “exchange rates” on the contrary, you can do it with simple/variable products.
