Feature Currently in Testing
This feature is currently in testing, and only available to clients in our beta testing group. However, it will be available very soon.
Before using Cardless Checkout, you'll need to make sure you have Custom Online Deposits set up. If you haven't already, check out this guide to find out how.
You will also need the latest version of Phorest, which you can download here.
What is Cardless Checkout?
Now you can offer your clients a seamless checkout experience. Any client who has made an online booking previously will have their credit or debit card stored securely. Your clients want an Uber-like experience when checking out, and Cardless Checkout makes this a reality.
Is it Secure?
Phorest Payments are Powered by Stripe, who have the very highest security and Level 1 PCI Compliance. Your staff, nor Phorest, have access to the raw card details at any stage.
How much does it cost?
- 1.19% of the remaining booking amount + VAT if the client booked the appointment online and already paid an online booking deposit
- 1.19% of the total booking value + £/€0.29 + VAT if the client did not book online but has a card stored from a previous online booking.
- 1.75% of the remaining booking amount + GST if the client booked the appointment online and already paid an online booking deposit
- 1.75% of the total booking value + $0.30 + GST if the client did not book online but has a card stored from a previous online booking.
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.
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.
