The theme supports only a fee payment to the admin account.
The rest of the payment due to the owner will be handled outside the theme, between user and owner.
If you do not wish to charge a booking fee, make sure that you add 0 in Theme Options-Membership and Payment Settings and don’t leave the field to leave blank.

HOW TO ISSUE INVOICE IF OWNER MUST APPROVE THE BOOKING REQUEST
The user who submits the property sees all the booking requests for his property in user dashboard – My Properties.
From there property owner issues the invoices for the booking requests he receives (in My Bookings)
An invoice can be issued, deleted and issued again.
A booking request can be rejected as well.
All the invoices generated by the user who owns the property (who submits the property) will be visible in User Dashboard – Invoices
If 2 or more booking requests are sent for the same date/property – 2+ invoices were issued, the theme will allow only the first payment to be processed.
PAY ADMIN FEE TO CONFIRM BOOKING.
The user who submits the booking request gets the notification that an invoice was issued and he needs to pay the fee before booking is confirmed.
The theme doesn’t do payment from user to owner. Money go only to admin account.
