Which statues are utilized depends on your system and payment configuration:
- If payment processing is enabled in your account, bookings made on your website are automatically set to Paid or Deposit, depending on your Ecommerce settings.
- If payment processing is not active or a booking is made through the Checkfront dashboard by a Staff member, then the invoice status is set to whatever default you have chosen in the Configuration area (Manage > Setup > Configuration).
Learn more about these configuration settings here:
You also can create additional custom statuses as required, which we learn about later in this series.
In the next article in this series, we start by looking at the default booking status types.
