What is Smart Pricing?
Now you can get paid what your time is worth, automatically. With Smart Pricing, our data science analyzes your schedule to identify your most popular booking times and strategically raises your prices to match their true value. Smart Pricing helps you maximize profit without sacrificing bookings.
Adjusting your prices allows clients who need your prime time booking to easily reserve a spot, while clients who are more flexible can book your regular times at your standard price. Best of all, it all happens automatically so you can make more money (while making clients happier) without lifting a finger.
Earn More — Automatically
Smart Pricing continually evaluates your schedule, prices, and appointments. When your premium time slot changes, Smart Pricing automatically increases your service prices to earn you the most revenue. Raising your prices is a catalyst for growing your business. Smart Pricing handles this automatically so you can focus your energy where it matters — on your clients.
How it Works
Smart Pricing identifies your most popular time slots and raises your prices by 20% (up to $50) to match their true value. When your clients book online, they’ll see a slight price increase on your most popular time slots. Your client will confirm the price at booking and enter their card information to reserve the appointment. You’ll receive a notification of your new booking and a breakdown of your extra earnings in the appointment details.
For all Smart Pricing appointments, the payment will be processed through StyleSeat. We’ll charge the card on file automatically after the appointment ends. An automatic 20% tip will be included, or your client can add a custom tip from the text message we send them after the appointment. If there is a problem with the card on file, the appointment will appear red on your calendar.
