How to process the due amount?

First of all, it needs to understand the workflow.
When your customer books via public booking (i.e using widgets forms), he will be required to pay all amounts at once through activated payment gateways.
however, if someone comes to your workshop, repair shop/lab, etc, and the admin or technician creates a booking there will be a choice of the due amount,
in simple words, the customer will give you some amount in advance, and rest of the amount will be considered as due amount, (a total 100$, 40$ is prepaid as advance and 60& will be due unless got paid)
to make it paid, the admin or authorized technician can go to order details and edit it as shown below,
on edit here
here you can enter the paid total amount, as above example
Total Payable amount is: 59.57$
Paid amount: 40.00$
Due: 19.67$
to make it t paid you need to enter 59.57$ as the paid amount ( or even if you enter 50 it will show 9.57$ as due)(i.e it depends on your case)
and save it
This is blocked by your service provider due to having an extra security layer. so it is required for images that you will upload. please follow the steps below. This is the command code: /*--storage command start---*/ Route::get('/get-storage-link-command', function () { $comamnd = 'ln -s ' . storage_path('app/public') . ' ' . public_path('storage'); dd($comamnd); }); /*--storage command end---*/
  1. 1.
    Go to the application root directory
  2. 2.
    Enter the routes directory.
  3. 3.

  5. 5.
    add below command on line no 4 in the web.php (while editing )
  6. 6.
    Save it.
  7. 7.
    and go to http://yourdomain.com/get-storage-link-command
  8. 8.
    it will generate a command for you and you run it in your server shell or terminal.
  9. 9.

You can use a cron job to automate running it.
