Fresha, the #1 booking platform and marketplace for beauty and wellness, has launched Tap to Pay for iPhone in the UK – letting users take payments with just a phone. No other hardware needed.

Fresha has launched Tap to Pay on iPhone in the UK, making them the first beauty and wellness booking platform to let UK users take contactless payments straight from their iPhone. The feature lets beauty professionals complete checkout in seconds and give clients an even smoother payment experience. Users simply open Fresha on their iPhone, ask clients to tap their phone or card, and the transaction is complete.

Tap to Pay on iPhone effectively puts a point-of-sale system in each user’s pocket, letting them take payments from anywhere in the venue – without relying on payment terminals or other hardware. It completely eliminates the need to share terminals or manage queues, since payments can be taken by anyone, anywhere, at any time. Plus, Tap to Pay enables businesses of any size to take secure contactless payments in-store – from boutique cash-only startups and booth renters, to venues that rely heavily on online payments; all without needing to invest in any equipment.

The feature works with debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets. It’s also perfectly secure, using Apple’s technology to encrypt card details and process payments without storing data on users’ iPhones.

Fresha remains the top choice for forward-thinking beauty professionals

Tap to Pay on iPhone is the latest innovation in Fresha’s robust payment system, joining a lineup of features that includes multiple payment methods, upfront payment policies for reducing no-shows, and daily payouts that give businesses fast access to their earnings. All underpinned by one of the lowest payment processing fees in the industry.

Having also launched the new feature in the US, Australia, and the Netherlands, Tap to Pay integrates seamlessly with Fresha’s all-in-one booking and management platform. Like all payments taken on Fresha, Tap to Pay transactions immediately appear in users’ reports, helping them track their earnings, spot trends in their sales, and make profitable decisions.

Fresha remains the best booking platform for beauty and wellness businesses who want to be ahead of the curve. Their users get first access to the most powerful tech, giving them an edge over their competitors in a market where technology sets the winners apart.

Tap to Pay on iPhone is a hit with Fresha users

“I just open Fresha on my phone, let clients tap their card, and we’re done. I can’t believe how easy it is,” said Dino Antony, Co-Founder at Paradigm, a leading London barbershop. “Queues aren’t a problem anymore, and we don’t have to worry about finding a card terminal at the end of each appointment. It’s a hit with our staff and clients.”

Stuart Davis, Head of Product at Fresha, is thrilled with the positive response from Fresha users. “The team at Fresha worked hard to bring Tap to Pay to our users as soon as possible, and we’re proud to be leading the charge in the UK and beyond. Despite the short time it’s been available, many of our users are already calling it their favourite Fresha feature.”

Nick Miller, Fresha Co-Founder and Chief of Product, says the new feature raises the bar for payment systems in the industry. “Tap to Pay helps us deliver the best payment experience in beauty and wellness, and being the first to bring this technology to our UK users aligns with our goal of setting the standard in the industry,” he said. “Plus, Tap to Pay is just the first of many game-changing new payment features we’re launching. Watch this space.”
