Square Appointments is incredibly versatile, with a low barrier of entry for those on a budget. It doesn’t matter if you’re taking bookings online or in person, because Square includes so many different selling tools without additional costs.
The Square Appointments app can be used for selling both physical items and services, but it’s different from Square Point of Sale for its focus on the booking system mixed in with more general features. Consequently, it suits different professionals such as barbers, hairdressers, beauty salons, consultants, cleaners, wellness specialists, teachers and trainers.
But whereas Square leads with its general, interconnected payment flows, it lacks truly advanced customisation options suited for larger firms. Sure, you can integrate with other software platforms, but the booking flow is limited to Square’s (generally efficient, mind you) design.
We wholeheartedly recommend Square Appointments for individual practitioners and small teams of professionals, but it’s worth giving it a test run first if you’re a more complicated business with unique requirements.
