    Hi,

    We are not able to map postpaid security deposit with any of the open APIs available either separately or as part of Payload of Create Product Offering API.

    To elaborate further, requirement is to create security deposit, as part of product catalogue, that is taken along with Postpaid Subscription Order and either refunded on request/on termination/on maturity or adjusted against invoices.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Pankti
    You could model the requirement for a Deposit as a ProductOfferingPrice, and then the actual instance of a Deposit in the order as OrderPrice and inventory as ProductPrice. Set priceType to Deposit, and you would have business logic in your code e.g. to verify that the deposit was paid, to return the deposit when the customer disconnected the Product, etc.
    Hope it helps
