How Clients Pay for Their Online Bookings


You can opt to have clients pay for their online bookings one of two ways—Pay At Salon or Pay Upfront.

Pay At Salon

When Pay At Salon is active, your client's will book online and pay for their booking via any payment method when they come into the salon for their appointment.

Pay Upfront

Alternatively, when Pay Upfront is active, all clients will pay in full at the time they make their online booking. When you Accept the client's online booking, the full amount is charged to the client's credit card.

Before you can use Pay Upfront, you will need to create a Stripe account for payments to process. Please click here to learn how to set this up.
