The Simple Salon Tech Team will be performing some important server upgrades this Sunday 27th of July at 10:00PM Melbourne time as part of our ongoing commitment to providing you with the best and most reliable service.
Please note that Simple Salon may be offline for up to 2 hours. We understand that this is a major inconvenience and our team are aiming to have the system back online as soon as possible.
Thanks for your co-operation and understanding.
Simple Salon Team
Our team have been incredibly hard at work and are proud to bring you some exciting new and improved feature updates to Online Bookings.
Simple Salon’s Online Booking feature has always allowed your clients to make appointments around the clock, but NOW they can also pay for those appointments at the same time. This means for the first time your salon is truly open 24 hours 7 days a week. Make money while you sleep or while you spend precious time with your family and friends.
This simple and integrated approach allows the online payments to show up directly in your Simple Salon account along side your normal POS transactions. Check out the video for more information.
But wait there’s more…. before you can take payments via the Online Bookings site you need to connect to a Payment Gateway. Simple Salon is excited to announce that we have partnered with PIN Payments to provide you with a directly integrated Payment Gateway. The following video shows you how simple it is to create an account with PIN Payments and get started taking payments online!
And finally, something that has been a heavily requested feature. Yes, we’ve saved the best news for last… It is here, the ability for your clients to book multiple services in the one online booking! It speaks for itself!
Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming very soon!
The new Dome Global Appointments feature is now live. Please watch the video below for details.
When you have a chain of salons across multiple locations, finding available times can be difficult. The new Dome Global Appointments feature allows you to centralise your appointment bookings via the Dome. There is no longer any need to login to different locations, browse up and down from the Dome or make countless phone calls between locations. Simply select any location and make the booking just as if you were right there standing in the salon. This makes it easy to use a call centre facility or a centralised reception to take bookings across your entire chain of salons. This new feature also allows each individual salon location to make bookings across the network of salons quickly and easily.
For an added level of security and flexibility, individual locations can opt in or out of the Dome Global Appointments process making it perfect for a single owner chain of salons or a chain of salon franchises.
We’re pleased to announce that it’s now possible for new clients to register via the Online Bookings site.
Simply add a link to your existing web site, Facebook page or in an email blast and start accepting new Online Bookings clients right away.
