Getting paid just got easier

By Cody Pierson Date 07/02/2013  

You know how BookedIN helps businesses: Get Noticed. Get Booked. Get Paid. Well, we just got even better at the last part.

BookedIN already allows you to collect up-front payments and deposits from clients when they booked online and send payment reminders after an appointment. Now we’ve given you the ability to sell products, additional services and collect payment for bookings made offline!

Get paid in two click with appointment software

It only takes two clicks to get paid.

The new Request Payment feature completes our trifecta of payment services, which is why we’re taking this opportunity to remind you of all the ways BookedIN helps you get paid. We’ll start with the newest edition to the family:

Request Payment

When you send a payment request, the recipient will immediately receive an email with a “Pay Now” button. They can pay via credit card or PayPal and the money gets immediately forwarded to your PayPal account (minus processing fees). And don’t worry, we’ll take care of the receipt as well.

You can request payments from anyone, not just existing clients. A history of each payment is stored in your client database. You can cancel previous requests and easily refund a payment, if you need to.

Up-front Payment

This was the first payment feature introduced to BookedIN and it’s still the most popular. It allows your business to collect payments or deposits from your clients when they book online through your Business Webpage. It’s a great way to get commitment from your clients and cut down on no-shows.

Pay Via Email

Everybody knows the early bird gets the worm but with BookedIN they can also get a discount. With Pay Via Email, you can automatically send reminders to your clients to pay for their service after booking an appointment. You can even offer a discount to encourage your clients to pay early!

No matter how you decide to collect payments via BookedIN your clients can pay via credit card or PayPal and money is immediately transferred into your PayPal account. Refunds are simple and you’ll always have a complete payment history in your BookedIN client database.
