With Vagaro Pay Later (VPL), your customers will make larger purchases, knowing they can pay over six weeks in four installments with no finance charges! Vagaro will deposit the full purchase amount (minus their 6% non-refundable fee) into your bank account the next business day.
After VPL checkout, all future payments are handled between the customer and Vagaro, so your business isn’t affected if a customer misses a payment.

Only available for US businesses. All VPL payments will be deposited into the booth renter's or the business's merchant account after one business day. The cut-off time is 6 p.m. PST. Any transactions made with VPL after 6 p.m. will be deposited in two business days.
If your business is concerned about transaction failures after a service is completed, customers can use deposits or prepay for appointments instead.

Service Providers will receive a commission from the full sale total. The 6% fee is not deducted from commissions. Funds are automatically divided into employee bank accounts if a VPL transaction is made with multiple Merchant Accounts in a single checkout.
When refunding customers for VPL purchases, be sure to use the same payment methods as the original transaction. For example, if a payment was split between cash, gift certificate, and VPL, refund the same amounts for each payment method.
Do not refund a transaction paid for with VPL using only cash or gift cards! The customer’s account will not be credited for the refund, or you might refund the same customer twice. Make sure you refund all VPL purchases through the Transaction List. Vagaro will refund the customer for all VPL purchases by reimbursing the full original purchase price or installments paid by the customer. For your business, after a refund, Vagaro will take the entire purchase amount from your account. The 6% fee is non-refundable.
