LOVE IT -one one kink

I have been a member of glossgenius for a year and a half now and I love the layout and fact that you can post a picture as a service. they also tranferred my clients and apointment easily and the website url is very easy to write on a business card or through a voicemail. Love that clients review without awkwardly asking them to! the virtual assistant is A+++++!! , there's needs to be a split payment option for clients who pay half cash/half card and also a waiting list option. booking controls are great as well as being able to have more control. The “block feature I feel is a bust , because you end up getting a text from your client still trying to book it should say not available instead of “something went wrong”- not sure. my ONLY wish is DOLLAR amount discounts instead of percentage such as $10 off- this way clients can see it in their receipt that “hey i received a discount!” and it’s not an awkward number with change

I love it, but...

Four major things needed: 1) split forms of payment at checkout. I’ve had to make two separate appointments before for clients and check one out in cash and the other with card to do this. A big inconvenience. If split form of payment were allowed at checkout, it could be smoother and less time consuming. 2) there is no way of entering gift cards for purchase, only for payment, which I find very odd. 3) consent forms should be an option to upload to have clients fill out and stored in their client file, this is necessary instead of getting a 3rd party app to do this or wasting printing & paper. 4) deposits, we need an option to take deposits. This can ensure, some of us, security with our more time consuming and costly appointments.

I wouldn’t mind paying more monthly if these things were up to date. And I say up to date because a lot of other competing booking apps have these options. But I choose GlossGenius for its sleek design, seemless website to app connection, and it keeps things simple for the client. But if in a year from now these aren’t added on to improve our businesses, I’ll have to switch.

Great but not ideal !

I’ve been using gloss for about 3 years now , I am a esthetician and love everything about the app except the card feature that you have the option to require during booking . I have a huge clientele and sadly have to send individual invoices to protect myself . Most booking systems do not allow you to upload a invalid card , but their system does . When a client no shows . We ARE NOT protected . Ive reached out to them several times on this matter but no luck . So unfortunately I will be leaving gloss this week to a more ideal booking system .

I also dislike the language email about cancellations , it states if you need to cancel or change to contact (the business number) but that’s confusing because they don’t , I’m busy most the time and don’t need my clients texting me to cancel , when the link is in the email to cancel , the language should be more specific . The customer can cancel on their own until the cancellation window is up .

Hopefully they get it right soon because it’s a great app but many of my fellow estheticians are leaving for these reasons .
