The facility offers a number of user-configurable options to handle most types of advance payments, including credit-card online payment, advance deposit, prepayment, and client credit. Besides setting credit limits and pay-by dates, the facility can be configured to suggest alternate payment options. For example, an agent who has used up his advance deposit might be offered the opportunity to pay by credit card for an additional last-minute booking.
