To charge credit cards, follow these steps when using the Desktop Version of Vagaro:
- Go to the Calendar.
- Select the appointment. Then click Service Complete (Checkout). This takes you the Checkout screen where you can manually enter the credit card info or swipe the card with a reader.
*Remember you must first sign up for Vagaro Merchant Services to allow credit card payments. Click here for more information. Additionally, when a customer's credit card is put on file, we apply a $0.01 verification to ensure that the card is valid. This is then voided automatically and the customer is not charged.
Let's get started!
1. Go to your Calendar. Select the appointment. Then click Service Complete (Checkout). This takes you to the Checkout screen.
Entering a Credit Card Manually
1. Select the Add option next to Credit Card.
2. Enter the credit card details. Toggle the Save card on file option to store the client's credit card to their profile. Click Add when you're finished.
Using the USB Credit Card Swiper
1. If you're swiping a credit card, make sure the card swiper is connected to the USB drive on your computer.
2. Slide the card once the swiper lights up. You'll then hear a "beep." The beep means the reader has read some of the magstripe data.
3. The confirmation pop-up will appear. Notice you can enter a tip. Click Charge Credit Card to confirm the purchase.
