Want to make more money? Take payments upfront for appointments and guarantee your clients show up.
As a service provider, you love when a client books an appointment. You are also very sad when they don’t show up. You don’t get to see their lovely face, and you also miss out on some business because you blocked off that time for someone who flaked. So how do you avoid this heartbreak? How do you guarantee that you client shows up?
With Setster, you can take payment right when a client books an appointment through your online scheduling widget. After they choose a time from the calendar, you can bring them directly to a payment page that can take all major credit cards/Paypal. By doing this, you are making it so your client has a vested interest in showing up (besides your exemplary service). So get on it!
For the unacquainted, Setster is online appointment scheduling software that is accessible to clients through a little tab, or widget, that you put right on your business’s website. Once they click on the tab, a calendar overlay comes up right on your site that shows them the entire range of times that you are available. Once they pick a time slot, and fill out their information, the appointment is booked. The overlay disappears and the users stays on your site. As soon as the appointment is booked, notifications are sent to both the client and you, confirming the appointment. If any changes need to be made, such as a rescheduling or cancellation, all they have to do is make an edit available from the confirmation email or on the calendar, and both parties will be informed the same way. This allows you to streamline the time consuming task that is taking appointments, and spend your time doing things that actually make you money.
