    Fine and encouraging review.

    I use and recommend Woo Commerce and this could be a useful plugin for some of my retail customers. I am glad a reliable source gives it a good review. It gives me the confidence to present this as an addition to their online stores.

    “Payment recipes?”

    I love marketpress – everything comes bundled. Strange for such a small functionality which should be inbuilt develpers are charging 80+ dollars…

    I’ve tested a handful of partial payment plugins and keep defaulting back to Woo Deposits. I’ve implemented it on a few sites and even had custom work done; Larry & team have been great.

    The only downfall that I’ve run into is attempting to create manual orders with deposits from within the dashboard. At present there is no way for an admin to create an order, assign it (line item) a deposit value, and then have the customer log in and be provided the options to pay either the full or partial amount (as seen on front-end orders).

    Apparently this is something that is going to be reviewed this year at some point but just thought I’d mention it if anyone needs to do manual orders/deposits for customers.

    There also isn’t a changelog (that I’ve seen) for the plugin so it can be sort of a surprise as to what gets fixed/added when updates happen.

    All in all I’d recommend using it if you’re looking for deposit functionality for your WooCommerce store. 🙂

    The plugin looks great. But there doesn’t seem to be a feature in it that allows ‘Automatically charges the remaining part at a set time in the future’. Users need to log in again to pay. Our customers probably will not come back to the site. So we need a system that automatically charges the other parts if the user does not cancel it. It will be more like a subscription plan that charges in the future but also ends in another future time. We know Paypal supports recurring payments. And all our payment gateways are with Paypal for now.

    Would love some advice.

      Hello Ben,

      We’re in the same boat at the moment, however do not use PayPal, our client is using Authorize.net. It would be a HUGE benefit if these offered the ability to capture the payment on the invoice billed in the future, rather than the clients requiring to log in and pay it manually.

      This defeats a lot of convenience for our purpose, but in general, plugin sounds great!

      Thanks WPMayor for the write up on this!

    Thank you for the review of these plugins. I have a question about your statement under Woo Deposits:

    ‘”There’s even an added option to incorporate an email system whereby a customer is sent a reminder email after a set amount of time that payments are due.”

    Where is that option set? I cannot find it after purchasing the plugin and using the plugin for some time.

    Hi Ben,

    Before I purchase, I’d like to know if this plugin can either capture the invoice to be billed later as asked a few months ago or if Stripe can be used to save customer information such as the cc number etc. I currently using stripe on drupal but would like to switch platforms. Thanks!

    This plugin is no longer being sold 🙁

    Anyone found an alternative?

      @panopticdesign – WooThemes now sells their own Deposit Payments plugin (not sure if it’s as advanced): https://www.woothemes.com/products/woocommerce-deposits/

      Looks like YITH team also has one available as well: the https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/yith-woocommerce-deposits-and-down-payments/

      Keep in mind with the WooThemes one it creates a new order for each payment, whereas the Webatix one, from what I remember, stores all payment details in 1 order.

    Yes this plugin has not been sold for nearly a year and there has been no updates since last year. Not long after it was release their website stated they were no longer selling it any more and working on servicing the customers they already had.

    The last release was Version 1.2.0

    New licenses and license upgrades have been suspended for this since November of 2015. The developer Larry Kokoszka is not sure if he will continue support for this at all.

    Is there a way to use these plugins to split payments using a Woo Commerce POS? So in other words – I use a POS plugin in my store which links to my online inventory and I want to give customers the ability to pay in cash and card. Can this be done with the plugins? and are these plugins compatible with the Woo Commerce POS?

    This is the POS plugin I am using: https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-point-of-sale-pos/7869665

    is there a way to allow deposits on orders instead of products?
    I want to allow for deposits only if the order total is over a certain amount of money. Is there any kind of logic to support that?
