Opening the correct order
Navigate to your Upcoming Orders and open the reservation you want to start by clicking on it. Here is how to find the correct upcoming order.

Review the payment status
Depending on the sales channel and your accepted payment methods your customer might already have paid for their order in advance online. Others may pay on site before the rental is started, while others collect payment upon return.
Regardless of your operations, it is always a good idea to review the payment status before starting the rental.
Additionally, you may want to make sure at this stage that a security deposit has successfully been reserved from your customer.
Click the "Start" button on the bottom right of the individual order view. An order can be started anytime and Rentle will help you potentially adjusting the rental period.
