Configuring deposits for online payments
Use the Deposits tab to enable the Deposits feature, and help you specify how Digital Ordering, Aloha Takeout, and the Aloha POS interact to prepay online orders and confirm the payment is authorized before the system releases the online order.
Caution: You must configure deposits if you accept payment information from Digital Ordering through Aloha Takeout.
To configure deposits for online payments:
With Takeout selected in the product panel, select Maintenance > Takeout Configuration > Takeout Settings > Deposits tab.
Select Enable deposits.
Select the tender you created for use with deposits from the 'Deposit tender' drop-down list.
Select the order mode to apply when the system creates a deposit check from the 'Deposit order mode' drop-down list.
Caution: Do not configure a service charge for the deposit order mode or select an order mode with a service charge, such as delivery. Aloha Takeout cannot fully tender the deposit, if you configure a service charge. We recommend you create a dedicated non-Aloha Takeout order mode with no surcharges configured.
Select the item you specifically created for adding a deposit to a guest check from the 'Deposit revenue item' drop-down list.
Clear Print deposit receipts when collected, refunded, or surrendered to print a guest check any time you complete an activity related to deposits.
