Deployment Notes: April 2019.
Spring cleaning is upon us, and we’ve got an extra long bug fix list to showcase. This month we’ve solved…
Call for beta testers! The Setmore-Square integration has moved from alpha to beta, and we need a crew of intrepid Setmore users to help us test it out. Also – you can now let customers book appointments from Instagram, and automatically push payment data from Setmore to Xero. Continue reading for more info!
Our upcoming Square integration is nearing completion, but we need more beta testers to help us out. The more transactions we can successfully complete in Setmore, the closer we’ll be to an official launch. Oh and have we mentioned? Once the Setmore-Square integration is launched, it’ll be free to use for all Setmore users!*
Post a comment below to request beta access to the Setmore-Square integration.
We’ll add candidates to the beta list and reach out personally with additional instructions. Note that the beta includes taking payments both from the Setmore platform via browser on any laptop or desktop, AND taking payments from the Setmore mobile app on your iPhone or Android device. We need testers on both our browser and mobile platforms.
It’s a beta test, but rest assured your payments will be safe and secure. Square handles the payment side of things, we’re primarily just testing specific interface enhancements that will make it possible to take payments in Setmore.
*Note: Square equipment and transaction fees still apply. Square beta testers must be in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.
You can now add a “Book” button to your Instagram business profile! This will give your customers and followers the ability to book appointments to your Setmore calendar through Instagram, without having to exit Instagram or tab into another app. Please note, this integration only works for Instagram business profiles, and not personal profiles.

Bottom line, this integration will probably lead to more appointments. As people get excited looking at your latest fade, cut, color, tattoo, or whatever it is, you can turn that excitement into action by giving customers the opportunity to book an appointment right then and there.
Adding the Book button to your Instagram profile is super simple, super easy, and it’ll only take a few minutes. Read our support article for step-by-step instructions, and contact our support team if you have any questions!
Xero is beautifully designed accounting software for small businesses, and now you can integrate it with your Setmore calendar to help automate your accounting practices! With this integration, Setmore will automatically push any payment data you’ve logged into your Setmore calendar to your Xero account, saving you the time and hassle of having to manually log these transactions.

This integration works great when paired with one of our payment integrations, such as with Stripe Payments (requires Setmore Pro), or Square (in beta testing – usable with the free version of Setmore).
