Admin sets in theme options the value of the admin fee from total bookings (admin booking fee excludes city fee and cleaning fee ).
The fee is deducted from total invoice and is paid by user submitting the booking, before booking is confirmed and AFTER the property owner approves the booking request.
If you don’t wish to get admin fee, you can set the value to 0. The booking will be confirmed automatically when the property owner confirms the booking request.
The process is described with images below:
Make sure that you add 0 for admin fee in Theme Options-Membership and Payment Settings. Don’t leave the field blank!!
User sends the booking request after he registers/logins:
The user who submits the property will get the notification about the new booking request – https://help.wprentals.org/article/theme-email-notifications/ and then from user dashboard – My Bookings he issues the invoice with 0 fee required and he confirms the booking.
If admin fee is set to 0 by admin, the issue invoice will show Deposit 0 (which means 0 admin fee).
If 2 or more booking requests are sent for the same date/property – >2 or more invoices were issued but the theme will allow only the first booking to be confirmed.
The rest of the payment is handled outside of the theme, between the users.
