If you’d like to handle the Deposit differently for the Item you’re working on, choose another option from the drop-down menu rather than Use system settings.
For more information on Deposits, see the following help article...

The Ecommerce setting determines whether there is a Payment step within the booking process or not.
With the Ecommerce setting set to On, Customers are presented with the Payment page as part of the booking process.
With the Ecommerce setting is set to Off, then the Payment page is skipped and the Customer goes directly to the Guest Details or Receipt page, depending on whether you have the Guest Form integration enable or not.
Disabling the Payment page is an option for those looking to offer free Items such as tickets to a free show.
Click the Next button in the bottom right of the screen to continue to Packages configuration. You can also click on the Save button to record your progress and to return and complete creating or updating the Item later.
