In this section, we will cover a few different scenarios for collecting fees for your photography services.

- Navigate to the Sessions page.
- Click the Edit button in the Session details section OR the Add Session Details button for new sessions.
- In the new window that pops open, scroll down to the Session Fee section.
Scenario 1: Collecting the entire session fee during booking.
In this first scenario, you will be collecting the entire fee from your clients during booking. This is the default state, so you do not have to change anything. You can, however, choose to collect sales tax.
Scenario 2: Collecting partial fee during booking.
In this second scenario, you will be collecting a partial fee (retainer) from your clients during booking. This is how to set it up.
Scenario 3: Collecting remaining balance outside of Session.
In this third scenario, you will be collecting a partial fee (retainer) from your clients during booking and will be collecting the remaining amount outside of Session. This is how to set it up.
