7. Prepaid Settings

Enable prepaid bookings to ensure clients have a paid booking in order to join a class.

This setting requires Credit / Debit Card (Online) and/or Instant EFT (if applicable) payment methods to have been activated on the Billing > Settings page.

When using prepaid bookings, any client who adds a booking to their basket will be required to pay for their booking within 30 minutes. If payment isn’t confirmed, their bookings will be removed.

How do I activate prepaid bookings? 

1.	Go to My Business > Billing > Prepaid
2.	Set ‘Activate client prepaid bookings?’ to Yes
3.	Customise your settings for trusted clients and weekly reservation bookings as required
4.	Select Save Changes then Confirm

Trusted Clients

It is possible to allow trusted clients to bypass the prepaid booking 30 minute timer. If enabled, Bookamat will automatically identify trusted clients based on them having made a minimum number of payments within a set period of time.

Prepaid For Weekly Reservation

You can also apply a prepaid rule for clients with a weekly reservation. If enabled, clients with weekly reservation bookings will be notified at pre-set times before the end of each month to pay for their upcoming bookings. Any unpaid bookings will be removed by the 1st day of each month.
