Requiring credit card capture allows you to save a client's credit card information to their profile. You then can charge a cancellation fee if they do not make it to an appointment or class. To require credit card capture in Vagaro, follow these steps:
- Select Settings.
- Select Online Appointment Rules.
- Toggle the switch to require credit card capture.
- Enter a minimum amount for the capture.
- Select Save.
Here are some things to keep in mind before enabling the credit card capture feature:
- You first you need to sign up for credit card processing. Click this link for more information: How to Sign up for Credit Card Processing
- When a customer puts their credit card on file, we charge $0.01 to ensure that the number and information are correct and the card is real. This is then voided automatically and the customer is not charged the amount.
- The credit card capture feature does not affect bookings you get from Yelp as this site does not require credit card capture at this point.
