Where Can I use it?

Cardless Checkout is available on Phorest desktop and the Phorest Go app. If a client has a stored card on file, you will see an option to checkout using that stored card. 

Phorest Go (Mobile)

On the Pay screen, if the client has a card on file, you will see an option to charge it. If there are multiple cards stored, you can select from any one of them. On each card, we show the last 4 digits of the card, so your client can be sure of which one they wish to use.

Phorest Desktop

Just like Phorest Go, you can also choose to pay with a stored card on the desktop. You can use the default card on file or choose from another if your client has more than one on file.

If the client has more than one stored card, you'll see a dropdown option to change cards. The most recently used card will be selected by default.
