I’m working on building a rental marketplace (Hosts & Guest) and trying to figure out the best way to capture a Security Deposit, incase damages occur during a rental and charge the guest after the rental along with their daily rental rate.
I am using Stripe plugin from Zeroqode and considered charging a Security Deposit upfront along with Days rented and then refunding the Security Deposit after the rental but this isn’t advantageous for the Host as Stripe fees would be on initial booking amount…along with my marketplace fee. I also considered just doing an authorization but as I understand it Stripe only allows a hold on a 7 day authorization, so it wouldn’t work for longer rentals or rentals taking place next month.
My question is…is there another payment platform &/or plugin that allows that level of flexibility? Overall Stripe seems to be the best out there but their flexibility is limited for my use case or I maybe missing something…likely am Any ideas would be really appreciated.
