There’s so many ways we help you make more money! Our rebooking feature help you keep clients coming back. Or text message marketing campaign is awesome – one of our stylists earned $1500 in an hour with one text message campaign.
Are there any other fees I am unaware of if I back out? If you don't want to use the service, you can cancel at any time and there is absolutely no cancellation fee. No fees for backing out. It's just that simple.
We totally get that – that’s why we offer so much customization and control over your online booking! If you don’t want clients to be able to book themselves online (and you want to schedule them yourself while still getting all of the benefits of the app), there’s a setting inside Settings > Website Info > Disable Online Booking that allows you to control this. What turning this setting ON does is: clients can still visit your booking site to get more information on your business, see your services and then when they want to book you, they’ll get a cute little pop-up that tells them to contact you at your number to schedule.
Bookings you schedule yourself still get all of the app’s benefits – clients get automatic personalized appointment reminders, confirmations, thank-yous, and birthday messages so you can save a ton of time and stay on top of it. Plus, you can still check clients out and make use of all of the other valuable functionality like reporting, analytics, client notes and management, marketing features and more. If you decide in the future that you want to accept online bookings, all you have to do is tap that setting!
In addition, we have so many other controls you can customize to fit your business needs, like setting business hours so clients don’t book you outside of business hours, requiring cards on file so clients are held accountable for no-shows, advance booking windows required, booking during processing time, booking increments and more! To get a sense of some of these settings, head into Settings > Business Info > Booking Controls!
You're able to post pictures of your services for the service items themselves! So, when clients are viewing your services, they can actually see an image attached to that one service as an example. In the future, we may have a "gallery" where you can post more pics! :)
Absolutely! We use the gold standard for payment processing and have partnered with one of the world's leading secure and 100% PCI compliant online payment processors (the same one that many other well-known companies like Facebook, Lyft, Twitter, SquareSpace, Shopify, Pinterest, Adidas, and so many more use for their payment processing needs). So you're in good hands!
Deposits are ultra-fast and will be transferred same business-day to your bank account for next day deposit. So that means when you check out a client before 7 PM EST, payments will be transferred at midnight. Payments after 7 PM EST will be grouped with the next day’s transfer at midnight. Payments taken on Thursday after 7 PM EST - Sunday will be transferred Sunday at midnight. Once you link your bank account inside Settings > Payments & Card Reader, you're enabled for fast direct deposits.
We accept all types of cards and all major brands, even contactless! (Visa, Amex, Mastercard, Discover, Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc). Get the stunning GlossGenius card reader for a fast & flawless checkout experience. You can also accept cards by scan or key-in.
We offer the easiest-to-use and most stylish card readers in the industry. See for yourself here! Not only does it look awesome but we also offer our professionals the lowest processing fee at 2.6% and the most affordable card readers. If you have another processor you'd like to use, you can still do that (just "Mark Appointments As Paid" which will remove appointments from your queue and help you keep track of appointments you've collected payment for). However, using the built-in GlossGenius payment experience has many perks:
No credit card required.
