Credit Card Surcharge on Reservation Deposits

When the Cashiering>Credit Card Transaction Surcharge application parameter is set to Y, and a surcharge applies to the credit card payment method selected for the deposit payment, the upper grid (Deposit Requested) values will not reflect the surcharge amount. The surcharge will be included in the Deposit Screen lower grid payment Amount.

Transferring the Deposit

Deposits that are paid by a credit card that has a surcharge applied can be transferred to another reservation or reservations.

  1. Select the deposit payment to be transferred in the bottom grid of the Deposit screen and click the Transfer button.
  2. The available list of reservations that the deposit can be transferred to is displayed.
