A security deposit can be added to your listing as long as it is added before the reservation is booked. You would add this while you create the listing or you would edit your listing and add this before the guest books your stay.
Security deposits are to held within 4stay. We do this to ensure the security of both the guest and the host, and to guarantee satisfaction of the booking for both parties.
4stay policy does not allow security deposits to be handled off-site in cash, as this would be a violation of our terms and conditions.
