Accept Payments Custom Feature allows you to accept payments from your clients online. You can set the price for your service/membership/package, etc. and when your clients make a booking/purchase, they will be asked to pay to confirm their purchase. You can accept payments via a variety of payment processors. All the online payments are processed by the payment gateway of your choice and if there is a need to issue a refund to a client it can be done if you have PRO integration or manually from the admin account of your payment processor.

To check gateways available by country please follow this link.

Payment Timeout

This setting allows to determine the duration within which a payment transaction must be completed before it expires. If not paid within the defined period, the associated transaction and booking/s will be canceled automatically.
The recommended period is at least 1 hour to give clients enough time to complete the payment and for the payment system to send us the confirmation.

How to change currency

You can adjust the currency in the settings of Accept payments custom feature.

Please note!

  • Some payment processors do not support all currencies. Before setting the currency, check if the selected payment processor supports it.
  • There is no option to select multiple company currencies. The currency you choose will be the same for all your offerings.

In the Currency settings, you can enable Custom formatting company currency to adjust the following:

  • Currency Symbol: Customize the currency symbol if needed.
  • Decimal Separator: Choose between "," or "." to be displayed in your prices.
  • Digits: In this section, select the number of digits displayed after decimal separator in the amount, ranging from 0 to 3. For example, if the service price is set to $10 and the number of digits in Currency settings is set to 0, the price on the booking website will be $10. If set to 2, the format will be $10.00. If the number of digits is set to 0, it will not be possible to add amounts less than $1 (where $ stands for your company currency in this example).
  • Positioning of the Currency Symbol
  • Add space between the amount and symbol if desired.

What is "Pay later" option

When your clients are transferred to the payment page after Details tab, they usually have several options: your payment processor (one or several) and Pay Later. Pay Later in most cases means that client will pay right on the place when he/she arrives to the appointment. In your Dashboard, when you click on the appointment, such booking in the service price field will have a note "Pay Later". Additionally, you can enable the Auto process payment for Pay Later payment processor to automatically set the Paid status for the service bookings where Pay Later was chosen as the payment method. Note that this option does not apply to memberships, gift cards, or packages.
As well you can activate Skip payment confirmation step option. This is particularly useful for those who only wish to display prices without processing payments online. If enabled, this step will be omitted.
If you want to disable Pay later option please navigate to Payments in the left-side menu (i.e. interface) -> Payment processors and deactivate Pay later option there.

The following notifications are available:

  • Payment failed notification (can be sent to client and/or to company);
  • Payment link for Delay payment method (with Pro only);
  • Refund confirmation (with Pro only).

How the whole payments process works

1. A client goes through the booking process and presses Book Now at the end. Or he/she selects some memberships/package/gift card, etc. to buy.

2. He is directed to summary step to choose a payment method. At this stage unconfirmed booking appears in the admin calendar marked red as not paid to reserve this time so that no other person can accidentally book the same slot and there will be no double-bookings. As well an order with the New status appears in Payment transactions report.

3. After that, the client has 2 options:
3.1. to pay and the payment processor will send us confirmation that client has paid and we will automatically approve the transaction on our side (booking will be marked with green color and the order with paid status).

3.2. to not finish paying: the client is directed to the payment system, but then he closes the page, closes the browser, or simply leaves it open without any actions for a long period of time. In this case, the system will wait until timeout you set up in the settings of Accept payments custom feature will end and will cancel the non-paid booking/transaction because it was never finished. You can set the emails to be sent to client and/or you to be notified about the timed out bookings.
Same happens if the client paid, but paid later than timeout. In this case, if you receive a notification from PayPal/Stripe/etc. that client paid for the booking/order but as it was too late you can go to Payments -> Transactions or Reports -> Payment transactions within interface and approve this booking manually.
