Genius offers new payment methods through online appointment scheduling
Merchant Warehouse, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, recently announced a partnership with checkAppointments, a customizable online booking solution for businesses across a variety of industries. The integration of Merchant Warehouse’s Genius Customer Engagement Platform is checkAppointments’ first payment solution integration, allowing its clients to accept a variety of payment options when one of their own customers makes an appointment online.
checkAppointments’ booking software solution lets businesses give their customers control over their appointments, from scheduling at their leisure to paying for those services. With the Genius integration, customers can use their preferred method of payment when they set up an appointment, whether a traditional card payment or leveraging mobile payment technologies. Additionally, Genius capabilities build on checkAppointments’ existing option for their clients to apply promotions, coupons or voucher codes when appointments are made.
“Businesses need customizable solutions that not only appeal to customers, but also flexibly adjust to customers’ evolving needs,” said Addy Kapur, Founder, checkAppointments. “Genius is all about flexibility, making it a perfect payment technology for us. With Genius, we can deliver an even greater number of options to meet customers’ individual needs by letting them decide how they want to pay. We’re looking forward to the additional business opportunities Genius presents for our clients and their customers.”
