Can I just take a deposit payment, rather than full payment?

I'd like to just take a set deposit payment for every item in my store, but I want to be able to show the full price in each product record. Is there a way of doing this using the discount feature? I want to take a fixed deposit of £15, but the prices of the products all vary, so it wouldn't be a fixed monetary amount that needs discounting. 

 

Thank you!

Squarespace Scheduling has a deposit feature but Squarespace Commerce doesn't. Also Commerce discounts don't work in the way you require.

There may be workarounds such as using variants ('deposit' and 'full payment) but the usability will depend on the context and for that it would be helpful to see the website and to understand how you plan to receive the balance of payment.

thank you for your reply - an example from the website is: https://www.warners-stores.co.uk/store/p/morrisons-medium-whole-turkey-4-549kg 

Basically, when someone orders, ideally I'd like them to pay a deposit, because we won't know the exact price of the product until it is delivered into us. The balance of the payment would be made when the customer collects their order at our physical store.

Thanks for the additional information.

As customers will be paying the balance in person, I recommend that you change the price of your variants to match the deposit. For example, on the product you mentioned, change the actual cost of both variants to £20 so that when customers add it to the cart, they'll be prompted to pay £20. You can append the word "deposit" to the price (see screenshot below) by adding this to Design > Custom CSS:

.ProductItem .ProductItem-details .product-price:after {
  content: "Deposit";
}

This will affect all products, so if you only want this to affect some products, you'll require something more specific.

I hope this helps.
