This article will show you how to enable/disable the Full Payment Requirement feature in Cloudbeds PMS.
You will learn how to adjust these settings to check-in a guest which reservation has a remaining balance.
The Require the full payment amount feature allows to select whether you would like the reservation to be paid for in full prior to check-in.
If you have this feature enabled, and users try to check in a guest who still owes money (has a balance due), they will see the following warning message:
Enable or Disable the Full Payment Requirement
