Customizing Payment Options in Prohire

Customizing Payment Options in Prohire


 

A few weeks ago, Graeme blogged on how to best make use of the System Setup. Following on from this, I'm going to show you a few options to customize the way Prohire deals with payments.

When in Prohire:

 In Tools --> Setup --> System Settings --> Payments   .... you will see the following screen:

 

 

Disable payment for account customers --> this allows you to disable the payment button for account customers. This is particularly useful if you don’t want to administer payment for account customers via Prohire. This option will simply “grey out” the button so that it cannot be clicked.

 

Ensure full payment is taken before check out --> ensures that full payment for the rental is taken before Prohire will allow you to check out a booking. This option is only for non-account customers.

 

Details Not Mandatory --> makes the credit card number/name/expiry date non-mandatory when entering credit card payments.

 

Notes Mandatory --> within the credit card payment dialog there is a ’notes’ field, this option makes that particular field non-mandatory.

 

Start data mandatory on maestro cards --> does what it says on the tin.

 

Allow more than 1 banked deposit --> very useful if you take part of the deposit as a booking fee & then the rest of the deposit when the customer comes to collect the vehicle. Or if the customer would like to pay the deposit across two different cards. In previous Prohire versions you could only take the whole deposit.

 

Allow Deposits to be part refunded --> allows you to refund part of the deposit if there are extra charges at check-in. Prohire will automatically detect that there is an outstanding balance on the booking & take that as a payment & refund the remainder as a deposit.

 

Clicking ‘Method of payment’ will show the below dialog.


 

 

In here you can setup new payment methods by simply clicking ‘New’ and entering the payment method.  Once done that method will be shown within the payments screen of a booking.

Just a further example of how Prohire adapts to your individual business needs. Keep your eyes peeled for further system set-up blogs in the near future!
