We’ll go over our Basic Plan, but if you’d like to hear more about our Premium Plan option, check out our other article all about it HERE!

How Does Pricing Work?
  • Free business listing - $0 monthly subscription - List your business and get exposure to the millions of clients who search on StyleSeat. Build your brand, showcase your work, and start getting profile views at no cost.
  • 3% standard payment processing fee on all appointments - Charge clients seamlessly through the app with a hands-free checkout experience. Get your money instantly, directly to your bank account. No unreliable swipers, no confusing credit card fees.
  • 30% on New Client Connections - When StyleSeat sends you a new client through our New Client Connection program, we’ll keep 30% of the first appointment with each new client we bring you through these marketing efforts. This 30% will then be invested back into your growing business so we can continue to send new, high-quality clients your way.
  • 5.25% on bookings where StyleSeat helps you make more on your popular time slots - Some days and times are busier than others, and we want you to make the most for your popular times. When a client goes to book one of these times, we’ll see if they are willing to pay 20% more to secure that time. If they do, we take 5.25% of that increased total.
How Do Payments Work?

On our Basic Plan, all payments will be processed through StyleSeat, powered by our payment processor Stripe. We’ll help keep things simple by having everything all in one place.

  • When you sign up, you’ll link your bank account so we can send your payouts straight to you
  • Your money will be deposited directly to your bank the following business day or you can choose to get paid instantly through Instant Payouts.
  • When clients book you online, they’ll add a credit card to secure their appointment. 
  • When the appointment is over, they’ll be charged automatically through the app with our hands-free checkout. We’ll even send them a message later, so they can add a tip.
  • You can track your payments and extra earnings through the deposits tab
  • Analyze your business growth with Revenue Reporting. With our latest reporting tool, you can view your past earnings by day, week, month, and year to see how your business is performing over time. Compare your total revenue, tips, fees, and historical data for complete insight into your revenue patterns.

Our team has done extensive research and testing to understand the most effective way to grow a high-value, dedicated client list while increasing your revenue. In order to benefit from our growth tools and track your progress, you’ll be required to charge clients in a consistent and measurable way, which means charging them through the app. 

Allowing appointments to check out automatically through the app means there’s no need for clients to have to discuss money or pull out their wallet and many clients prefer the touch-free experience. Clients who pay through StyleSeat tend to tip 40% more on average.

Frequently Asked Questions | FAQ

What is the difference between the Basic Plan and the Premium Plan?

The main immediate differences are the subscription cost, with the Premium Plan having a $35 per month subscription, and the additional customization options. There are also some other small differences, like the percentages of some feature fees. Click HERE if you’d like to know more about those details.

What if I want to sign up for this plan but allow clients to pay off-platform?

Our team has done extensive research and testing to understand the most effective way to grow a high-value, dedicated client list while increasing your revenue. In order to operate under the $0 monthly subscriptions plan and benefit from our growth tools and track your progress, you’ll be required to charge clients in a consistent and measurable way, which means charging them through the app. If you would like more payment flexibility for your clients, the Premium Plan may be a better fit. Please note you will still be required to process payments for specific appointments on the Premium Plan if the appointment is related to one of our growth/marketplace features that helps you earn more money.
