What should I use PocketSuite for?
Use PocketSuite to easily schedule all client appointments, to confirm every appointment with credit card, to request payments from your clients, and to keep all your client data in one place. Eliminate payment risk for your business (i.e. job cancellations, no-shows, late payments) while giving your clients a convenient way to schedule and pay you.
What do I need to set up my account?
First download PocketSuite the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store for free. Register using your mobile #, import your clients, sync your calendar (for appointments) and link your checking account to receive payments. That's it!
How do I get my clients on board PocketSuite?
Easy! Your clients do not need to download anything. Simply enter them directly (name and mobile #), import them from your phone book, then you are free to send them appointment confirmations/requests and invoices.
You can also reference our Setup Page on how to easily import your entire client list to PocketSuite from your desktop.
How and when do I get paid through PocketSuite?
Once you link your checking account and get verified, all payments are sent straight to your bank account in 1-2 business days. The credit card processing rate is a flat 2.50% -- no matter what card type, no other fees.
You can get paid by clients in a number of ways:
(1) Send an invoice for clients to pay online
(2) Request a deposit for the client to pay upon confirming an appointment
(3) Requires credit card reservation, allowing you to charge a card upon completing a client appointment
(4) Run a point-of-sale charge by entering in any client's credit card
(5) Integrate online booking and accept booking + payments from your website or social media pages
