Genbook Partners with Square to Give Entrepreneurs More Payment Processing Options For Their Appointment Bookings

August 7 2020

Genbook, a leading cloud-based software solution for service-based businesses, today announced that it has partnered with the popular payment processing solution, Square. Salons, spas, barbershops, and other businesses in the grooming and wellness industry can now use Square payments to securely store their client’s credit card details and charge for their services before, during or after a booking is made.

The integration with Square demonstrates Genbook’s commitment to free entrepreneurs from distractions so they can create a better business experience. Part of doing that entails giving entrepreneurs the tools they need to manage their business and finances efficiently.

Credit card processing is a critical component to this, as so many service providers rely on payment technologies to take deposits for appointments, charge for their services, and sell products.

“Our unwavering devotion to small business entrepreneurs means we will continue to partner with the industry’s leading payment providers to offer options that suit our Genbookers,” says Philipp Liver, CEO of Genbook.

“Unlike other software providers, we don’t want to pigeon-hole business owners into specific solutions. Our goal is to give entrepreneurs tools that would empower them to run their business the way they want. That’s what this partnership is all about.”

Liver also emphasized the importance of payment processing when it comes to providing great customer experiences.

“Today’s consumers value speed and convenience in every stage of the buying process — from booking appointments to paying for their services.” remarks Liver.

According to him, “thanks to Genbook’s partnership with Square, appointment booking is now a lot easier for providers and their clients alike. This integration paves the way for a smooth customer experience by allowing service providers to quickly and securely process payments across different channels.”

Liver continues, “whether the service provider is taking payment details through their booking portal or finalizing a transaction at the checkout counter, Genbook users can rest easy, knowing that all their payment processing needs are covered.”
