Feature of The Month - Online Tanning PaymentsWe know a lot of our customers have been waiting for this feature for a little
while, and we’re happy to announce its almost here! We recently released our online deposits feature for hair, beauty, clinic and spa deposits and have since been working hard to get our release ready for tanning salons. The salon world is ever changing and the post-Covid era is making online payments one of the most popular forms of payment for customers.
How Will Our Online Payments Work?
As with our online deposits, our online payments will work through our seamless integration with Stripe, allowing customers to pay with card, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Klarna.
When a customer goes to book, they will see any remaining minutes they have in a services drop down and any available to purchase for that bed. If a customer wishes to purchase some new minutes, they can select the course or minutes package they want to purchase from the drop down. This will then take them through to Stripe where they will pay with their chosen method, once the payment has gone through, they will see a payment successful screen and then have the option to continue with their booking.
Once they have completed their booking this will show in your Salon Tracker system as an online booking, with the customers purchase being stored on their account. With online payments being activated for tanning, customers won’t be able to create a booking without purchasing minutes, helping to boost your sales!
Why Should You Implement Online Payments?The main benefit of introducing online payments into your salon is that it makes
the customers salon experience much more seamless! Giving them the ability to book and purchase minutes online not only improves their customer journey, but also makes your lives much easier in the salon with reduced waiting times. Customers are now using cash a lot less frequently, and it’s estimated that in
2026 the UK will become a cashless country. Many people prefer the convenience and ease of use of being able to pay for a service online. By integrating with Stripe, we have been able to offer a secure and safe payment method, so you and your customers are able to use our payment platform without the worry of information being at risk.
Revenue generated from online payments goes directly into your bank account through Stripe, and with any customers that opt to pay through Klara the full amount is sent directly to you. So, you don’t have to worry about following up on any payments, as there are all dealt with through Klarna.
How Do I Get my Online Deposits Set Up?
Our online payments feature is expected to be released for tanning salons shortly. If this is a feature you are interested in, we are looking for a handful of customers to test this for us, so feel free to give us a call or email on email@example.com and we will be happy to add you to the waiting list.
The feature is only available for our Enterprise Customers, if you wish to upgrade, please contact us and we will be able to arrange this with you.
If you would like to see this feature in person, we will be exhibiting at the Professional Beauty London Show on the 3rd and 4th of April on stand Q32! Feel free to come down and visit our stand for an in-person demo and to meet the team, we look forward to seeing you there.
