Uses for your custom Booking Page pop-up.
The blog typically highlights the latest and greatest additions to your app. But, we can’t forget those mainstay features that…
Around the world, more and more consumers are straying from carrying cash and cards. Thanks for bulking up our wallets all this time, but your era is over.
Staying loyal to paper and plastic currency has become somewhat of a rarity in 2022. It’s predicted that 2.6 billion people will be using mobile payment apps by the end of this year, a 400% increase from 2015.
This trend has been fueled by tech-championing Gen Z and the effects of a global pandemic that made businesses and their customers reliant on contactless transactions.
And let’s not downplay the convenience of paying straight from your phone.
With that in mind, we want your booking and payment system to be as flexible as possible. From September, you’ll be able to accept payments from your Booking Page via Cash App Pay ??
Cash App is a P2P mobile payment platform – listed as the number 1 finance app on the App Store – that lets users pay through their Cash App account or a linked debit card.
Read on for the benefits of connecting Setmore and Cash App Pay, why Cash App might actually be your customers’ preferred payment method in 2022, and instructions on how to get started.
Oh, and connecting is free.
It can be tough to keep up with the latest financial trends when you’re running a business. To help out, we’ve compiled a list of statistics that highlight why offering digital and mobile payment options is a surefire way to boost bookings.
The beauty of adding Cash App Pay as a payment option is that it’s included with our existing, tried and tested, Square integration. Simply enable this integration and your customers can pay via Square, Google Pay, Apple Pay and Cash App Pay on your Booking Page.
After selecting a service and appointment time, your customer enters their contact details and reaches the payment screen. From the list of available methods, they select ‘Cash App Pay’ and click ‘Pay now’.
A QR code appears on the screen. Your customer scans the QR code with their smartphone camera and this opens Cash App. Their unique $cashtag is recognized, completing the transaction. Back on your Booking Page, they see their booking and payment confirmation.
If the customer is booking using their smartphone, selecting ‘Cash App Pay’ opens Cash App automatically.
After reviewing the total, they tap ‘OK’ and are taken back to your Booking Page. Here they see their booking and payment confirmation.
At present, Cash App has 80 million annual actives, reinforcing the need for payment systems to become mobile-ready.
The Square integration includes Cash App Pay and comes free with all Setmore plans (currently available in the US only). We charge no additional fees on top of Square’s standard transaction fees.
To accept Cash App Pay on your Booking Page:
Once the integration is enabled, head to Settings > Payments > Booking Page. You can switch on Booking Page payments and choose whether payment is mandatory or optional. Cash App Pay will automatically display as an option for your customers.
For illustrated instructions and FAQs, check out our Cash App support article.
No matter where your customers learn about your services – your Booking Page, website, Facebook or Instagram – they can book online and pay with Cash App Pay in minutes. When your audience is ready to reserve your time, offer them more payment options so they can confirm appointments independently.
