Credit Card Integration and Deposits: Online Booking
being able to take deposits
We’re developing an even better solution than the client having to pay deposits. We’re building a client facing application so they can “manage their bookings” including reschedule, rebook and cancel but it’s attached to their card details. As it’s all live bookings, it’s automatically confirmed.
They’ll be reminded through the application to give them a chance to change the service details so there’s no need to re-confirm.
If they no-show, you’ll have the choice to apply a no show fee or cancellation fee as you have their card details.
This way, the clients are not blocki from booking but you’re still protected.
Countries to have payments enabled first will be:
can i ask when as we are being crippled with no shows? All phone bookings pay A BOOKING FEE BUT NOT ON LINE???
Can I link my square payment reader to this at all ??
This has been in the planning stages for over a year now. Everytime I inquire about this feature I am told "its coming in the next 6-8 weeks" so when is it really coming?
When will this credit card payment processing be available?

Please have deposits inbuilt to the booking sales system We have 100% payment of service for online booking and would like it for all bookings as this has dramatically decreased our no shows. HTML Paypal / stripe would be a fantastic option even if it was just a temporary one.
Could HTML be allowed in the email message section? This way we could put in a link to paypal or other payment processor.
My business takes deposits for appointments regardless of how they book. No deposit, no appointment, even in person scheduling. Deposits need to be built into the sales system on services. If I wanted to hold card details, I would just use Square's appointment system.
I would love to see this happening soon.
Some of us want to charge deposits though so how is just having the card details better?
If I have to go in Everytime someone makes an appt and charge it manually that would defeat the purpose of me using the software.
I'd like to have the option to decide what to charge and when as well as for which services
hi, any updates on the credit card integration and deposits??????
Surely we wouldn't be able to keep clients bank card details especially with the new GDPR that's starting on the 25th May? Will there be extra security for this new feature as in who would have access to the card details in order to take a payment for a no show fee for example?

Is this working on the Fresha app yet?
Any time frame on this happening?? I've just had a no show for a large appointment :(
You promised Online Payments from 2016 and result is the same.
In 2016 you say, this option will be available in the next 3 month, and, every 3 month the same.
I am one of many how switched CRM that we use because you don't have online booking system.
I use the same interface on Salonized, sorry, it's not free but i have that i need.
Clearly I'm not the only one.... We have to consider switching systems, even though we have to pay, because not having integrated credit card processing system is becoming a book keeping nightmare. I can hold off for a little, but we need a timeline. Please. I love everything else about Shedul, and am very sad that I have to look for other options.
When do you project deposits will be able to be taken for all bookings please?
Hi Justyne, Not sure if you are implenting these features but...
It would good if you could be able to have the ability to choose when the credit card feature kicks in. Some salons may want payment for all services upfront, some may want payment upfront for new clients only, some may want payment upfront or a 50% down payment only on bookings over 2 hours or $100 etc.
It would be great if we could select options - like new client, percentage of total cost, total booking time limit or total booking cost limit - where the credit card payment would kick in.
any dates projected
