Taking payments for your online bookings

We're excited to announce a new great addition to FlexBooker that you can now make use of.

Online bookings are a wonderful way of driving more customers to your business, and helping existing customers re-book your services, classes, facilities, or events.

What's even better? Getting paid online for those bookings.

FlexBooker has partnered with Braintree payments ( to give you the ability to accept credit card payments for your online bookings. You can choose exactly which schedules, or even specific times and days that you charge for, and how much.

You can even set up a "no-show fee", in which case we'll simply authorize the card, and you can optionally charge the no-show fee from your FlexBooker management app.

Everything is built-in seamlessly. Your customers still book via the widget just like now, and we'll automatically collect their payments for the appointments and times you choose, and you can manage refunds and no-show charging directly from FlexBooker.

Does it cost more?

We don't charge anything extra for you to accept credit card payments. No extra monthly fees, and no per transaction fees whatsoever.

Why Braintree?

Braintree are one of the world's leading, and most trusted, providers of credit card payments. They also will not charge you a monthly fee at all. They also don't charge a transaction fee for your first $50,000 in sales via Braintree(!). After that they offer truly competitive processing charges at just 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction.

What's Next?

With this release complete, our developers are right back to work on the next version, which will be heading your way in a couple of weeks. It includes:
  • a huge app design and interface overhaul to make navigation easier
  • introducing graphical calendars to the widgets, making it even easier for your customers to book from your website
  • powerful new metrics in the analytic and reporting section

More on that to come soon.
