Now Live: Payment Processing Overhaul

We just launched a new and improved online payments system! The Bookedin appointment scheduling & PayPal overhaul is now complete making things smoother, faster, and easier for your clients when they pay for appointments online.

This was a big one

  • Fixed issues many clients were having when paying for appointments online using mobile phones
  • Eliminated problems with the PayPal screen “freezing” for some clients
  • Got rid of an issue where “pending” appointments were blocking the calendar for too long
  • Got rid of some confusing steps in the business setup

Big shout outs to our beta testing group! We couldn’t have done this without you. Your effort over the past few weeks helped us to get everything perfect and ready for the entire user-base to enjoy. 💯

Ready to take it for a test drive? Log in to Bookedin now to connect or update your PayPal account. Be sure to update to the latest version of our iPhone & Android app too.
