We're not only using magento ce as an online rental store, we're also using it to create orders for customers in our brick and mortar store.
We have two significant problems:
1. In-store customers often ask us to do the drop-off, set-up and pick-up. PROBLEM: how can we add a lie item for such charges?
2. In-store customers book gear well in advance of the event. To secure the booking the client must pay 10% of the total price. PROBLEM: there seems to be only a single payment that can be recored against an order, so what do we need to accept the remainder later?
Many thanks for any pointers in advance,
1) There is a module from WebShopApps that have surcharges on shipping items
2) I believe there is a partial payment module
