This is new one - for me anyway

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

Just got an email from a customer wanting to know if her deposit would be returned after she paid the remaining balance of her order.

Good grief! I always say it applies toward the purchase price, just in case, but I have never had anyone ask.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

The answer is "no." You could ask her why she thinks she would get her deposit back, since it's part of the cost of her cake.........

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

There's nothing wrong with giving her the deposit back, you would just need to adjust the balance due to include the deposit. Just hand her the deposit in cash and she can hand it right back to you along with the rest of the balance.

^^^^Ditto

Or sure if she wants to complicate things give her a deposit back like Jason suggested adjust your cost.

Maybe she's confused, is she trying to rent a cake?!

Actually - technically a deposit IS something that is returned.

Use the word 'retainer' instead.

I sure wish the seller thought that when I put down a 3% earnest money deposit on my house. Deposits are only returned if they are indicated as refundable deposits in the contract and the relevant conditions are met.
