With Vagaro Pay Later, your customers can make larger purchases knowing they can pay over six weeks in four installments with no finance charges. Vagaro will deposit the purchase amount, minus a 6% non-refundable fee per transaction, into your bank account the next business day.
After checking out, future payments are handled between the customer and Vagaro, so your business won't be affected if a customer misses a payment.
Please Read Before Continuing!
All Vagaro Pay Later payments are deposited into the booth renter's or the business's merchant account after one business day. The cut-off time is 6 PM PT (3 PM ET). Any transactions made after the cut-off time will be deposited in two business days.

Booth renters and employees who have their own merchant services accounts are automatically enrolled for VPL when you set it up for your business. If you've set up a commission structure for products, services, or classes, service providers will receive their full commission from the sale total. If a VPL transaction applies to multiple merchant accounts in a single checkout, the funds are automatically divided into those employees' bank accounts. The 6% transaction fee is not deducted from commissions.
Employees and contractors are not required to use VPL, but they must also view and agree to the participation agreement for Credit Card Processing before they can use it, and then select OK.
When you refund customers' purchases made with VPL, the amount must be returned to the same payment type that was used for the original transaction. For example, if a payment was split between cash, credit card, gift card, and VPL, refund the same amounts for each payment method.
Always refund VPL purchases through the Transaction List Report. Vagaro will reimburse the customer's entire purchase price or any paid installments, and the amount will be taken your account, minus the non-refundable 6% fee for the transaction.
Do not refund a transaction paid for with VPL using cash or gift cards! The customer’s account will not be credited for the refund, or you might refund the same customer twice.
