Deposits On Jobs

Hi All,
My question is on taking a deposit for a job. I understand that the idea of a deposit is so if the person backs out of a job at least by taking a deposit you can recoup your paint costs and possibly a days loss in pay. Correct? Also what do most do if the customer asks for the deposit back?

Taking a deposit shows that the customer is serious. If they won't put some money down, why should I spend time scheduling the job, ordering materials, etc.?

I've only had 1 customer put down a deposit and then back out. He got his deposit back.
