Setting Up Your Online Shopping Cart
Remember customers can either pay for a service without booking or they can be required to pay when making the booking. Any transaction, in which a customer purchases a service without booking, will deposit to the business account. However, transactions, in which customers are required to pay when booking, will deposit to the account of the respective service provider.
Follow the steps below to set up your online shopping cart.
1. Click on the drop-down menu. Then, select the Merchant Account.
Select Sell Services without Booking to allow customers to pay the full amount for the services while booking at a later date.
Select Require Payment at time of Booking Services to require customers to prepay for services when booking the service online. Once you select this option, you'll be able to limit your prepayment requirement to New customer appointments, Old customer appointments, Outcall service appointments, and/or customers with a specific number of No-shows or cancellations.
The No-shows and Cancellations option allows you to set the number of no-shows and cancellations a client can have before they are required to prepay. This option is helpful if you have customers who cancel or don’t show up to appointments frequently.
2. Select Require Payment at time of Booking Classes to prepay for classes when booking online. Select Sell Memberships to require customers to prepay for memberships when purchasing online.
Select Sell Packages to allow customers to prepay for packages when purchasing online. Then toggle the Expiration Date if you want to set an expiration date. You can set the date by entering the number of months in the box.
3. Select Sell Gift Certificates to allow customers to purchase gift certificates online. Notice you also have an option to sell gift certificates that are specifically tied to services or classes. You also can set the expiration date by entering the number of months.
Below this option, you can select the preferred Shipping Method for shipping products to customers. Select Pick-Up Only if you want customers to pick up online purchases at your store location.
4. Enter your Refund Policy. Then enter the Purchase confirmation message.
5. Enter your cancellation policies for both appointments and classes. Click Save when you are finished.
