# How is the time calculation for making the prepayment by the guest?

Prepayment is a guarantee that the guest will arrive at your apartment. Read more about prepayment here.

**How is the time for making a daytime prepayment calculated?**

If the order was made during business hours, from 8 am to 10 pm, then the time for making the prepayment is as follows:

Order for today = 1 hour;

Order for tomorrow = 1 hour;

Order for the day after tomorrow = 2 hours;

Order with arrival after 3 days = 3 hours;

Order with arrival after 12 days = 12 hours;

Order with arrival after more than 12 days = 12 hours.

For example, the order was made at 3:40 pm. The guest will arrive in 5 days. This means that the time for making a prepayment will be 5 hours. The waiting time for payment on this order expires at 8:40 pm on the same day.

**How is the time for making a prepayment calculated if the order was made during business hours, but the prepayment waiting time ends at night?**

If the order was made from 8 am to 10 pm and the time for making a prepayment ends at night than 10 hours are added to the waiting time. For example, the order was made at 4:20 pm. The guest will arrive in a month. This means that the time for making the prepayment will be 12 hours. The waiting time should end at 4:20 am the next day. Since this time is idle, 10 hours is added to it. Thus, the waiting time for payment on this order expires at 2:20 pm of the next day.

**How is the time for making a prepayment calculated, if the order is made at night and the prepayment waiting time ends at night too?**

If the order was made during off-hours from 10 pm to 8 am and the time for making the prepayment also ends at night, then the time from the moment the order is created to the beginning of the working day is added to the waiting time. The number of hours is rounded up in a big way. For example, the order came at 1:50 am at night. Order from today to today, because the time for prepayment must be equal to the 1 hour and will end at 2:50 am. Since this time is non-working, the difference from the moment the order is created to the beginning of the working day will be added to this time, which occurs at 8 am. So 8 am minus 1:50 nights is 6 hours and 10 minutes. This time is rounded up. The result is 7 hours. Thus, the time for making a prepayment will be 1 hour and plus another 7 hours. Total, the waiting time for prepayment will end at 9:50 am on the same day.

**How is the time for making a prepayment calculated, if the order is made at night but the waiting time for prepayment ends in the afternoon?**

In this case, nothing is added. For example, the order came at 4:10 am. The guest will arrive in 3 weeks, which means that the time for making a prepayment is 12 hours. 4:10 am plus 12 hours is 4:10 pm the same day.
