Default settings for new bookings in Venue Manager

Whichever setting you choose, you can override it per booking. These settings do not affect bookings created in POS or online. Learn more about tentative bookings
|Reserve bookings by default
|Select this option if you want to reserve bookings by default, regardless of whether they've been paid for. Bookings are not placed on hold. They remain reserved unless manually canceled.
|Hold bookings tentatively by default
|Select this option if you want to hold bookings until payment is made or a booking item is redeemed. If partial or full payment is not received before the set time, bookings are canceled, freeing up availability for other sales.
From the drop-down, select the hold period in days, weeks or months.
|Prompt staff to choose whether to hold or reserve bookings every time
|Select this option if you want to prompt staff to choose whether to hold bookings or reserve bookings every time they create a booking. While this option may be more flexible, it does add an extra step.

From here, you can select the time format you want for displaying sessions in the online checkout. Select the Session time format drop-down menu to choose from the available options.
Reporting: cash or accrual method
Select your preferred method of reporting revenue in ROLLER reports. You can select the Accrual or Cash method for reporting.
For more information, see Cash versus accrual accounting.
Add taxes and fees
To access taxes and fees, from Venue Manager, go to Settings > Account > Taxes & fees.
When creating your account, ROLLER inputs a default tax rate based on your region which is automatically applied to all new products.
You can adjust this default tax rate or add various additional tax rates.
You can also add fees, which will be applied to all online and POS transactions in ROLLER. This includes bookings and purchases via online checkouts, POS and bookings created in Venue Manager.
Your online payment gateway will be charging you fees per transaction. It’s your choice whether you would like to absorb these fees to encourage guests to purchase online (keep in mind that guests who purchase online often spend more) or pass them back to your guests at the time of purchase online.
Add policy details
To access the policy setup page, from Venue Manager, go to Settings > Account > Policy.
Here, you must update the following:
- Add your venue’s terms & conditions, which guests must acknowledge before purchasing online.
- Adjust your marketing opt-in settings.
