Credit Card Capture, Deposits & Payments

Full Slate now integrates with various payment processors so businesses can require clients to place a credit card on file, put down a deposit or pay in full in when scheduling appointments online.

Credit Card Capture

Now you can collect a credit card number from clients to hold an appointment time without actually charging the card at the time of booking. Full Slate integrates with several leading payment processors – including Stripe and Authorize.net – that provide the ability to securely store credit card information for later use. Credit card capture can cut down on no-shows and gives you a way to enforce your cancellation policy by charging a fee for missed appointments.

Deposits

Collecting a credit card number or payment in online schedulerAnother option is requiring a deposit – either flat fee or percentage of the cost of service – at the time of booking. Non-refundable deposits provide a guaranty that the client will show up similar to credit card capture, but are less susceptible to dispute and charge-back than fines applied after the fact. And, since the charge is processed immediately, you don’t necessarily need to have a merchant account that provides for secure storage of full credit card numbers.

Payments

Businesses that wish to require payment in full at the time of booking now have the option of using an existing merchant account and their choice of payment gateways. In addition to PayPal Payments Standard, Full Slate supports PayPal Payments Advanced and Pro with Checkout Express, Payflow, Authorize.net, and Stripe. These offer seamless integration, so clients can pay for appointments right in your scheduling widget or webpage without being handed off to another site.

  1. Very beautiful … Thank you

  2. Any chance we will see integration with intuit or square?

    • Patrick says:

      Hi Marty – We’re looking into integrating with Intuit. Unfortunately, Square doesn’t currently offer an API with which we can integrate. If you’re a Square customer, you might contact them to suggest they add an API. 🙂

      • I prefer intuit anyway, that would be great! Thanks Patrick, you are always so on top of things and eager to help. I’m glad you are there for people like me. Sounds like it’s time for a raise for Patrick!!

  3. Hi Marty, am South Africa and have been using PayFast (www.payfast.co.za) in separate email. Waiting patiently for an API – will contact them as well. The cc’s and payment options were the only two unmet needs I had on FullSlate. Almost perfect – just a local payment option and you’ve got a client for life!

    Another shout out for Intuit as an option, keep up the good work!

    I’m an Intuit user as well – very much looking forward to credit card capture. Since I started using Full Slate, my no-show rate has been reduced dramatically (Thank you!!!) but I still do get a few.
