I’ve heard about PhorestPay, but what is it?

PhorestPay allows your salon to take payments for services and retail, both online and in your salon. Phorest will take the payment on your behalf, and we deposit that money straight into your bank account. 

I already have a credit card terminal in my salon, why do I need this?

With your credit card terminal supplied by your bank or payments company, it only allows you to take payments in the salon. With PhorestPay, you can take payments online for gift cards, online retail, and larger deposits for online bookings. PhorestPay will store your client's credit card details so that they can check out in the salon seamlessly. You can also take phone bookings and use the stored card to secure the booking.

How much will it cost?

Our rates will be very competitive, and we’ll be offering you new revenue streams that your current payments provider can’t offer. We will announce fees for online booking deposits closer to launch.

When will I get my money?

Payouts are done on a daily basis and take approximately 2 business days to land in your bank account.

Can I use PhorestPay to take payments instead of using my current card machine?

In Spring 2021 we will allow you to use stored cards from online booking and online retail to pay out your clients in the salon.


Soon after that, we will be able to replace your credit card machine entirely. Payments will be completely integrated with Phorest, so no more mistakes entering amounts twice - once in Phorest, and once on the credit card terminal!

Ok, this all sounds great… When can I get it?

PhorestPay is currently live and you can sign up under Manager > PhorestPay. Once you sign up for your account you can use Online vouchers and the Online Store, with bigger online deposits arriving in Spring 2021. Click here for a guide on how to get started.
