What the variable does

Business payment request URL

{{booking_payment_request_url}}

Inputs a link that allows customers to pay for their booking when they click on it.


What is the business payment request URL?

If you have integrated your Appointedd account with one of our payment gateway providers (Stripe, Square and Braintree), you can send your customers a payment link requesting that they pay for their booking. You can learn everything you need to know about sending payment requests here.

You can either send a payment request when you are making a booking for a customer within your Appointedd account, and a link to pay will be included in their confirmation email:

Or once a booking has been created, you can click on the three dots next to the customer's name and send them a payment request email:


How will this display within our communications?

Here is an example of an english email template set up with the payment request URL variable:

or

<p>Hi {{customer_firstname}},</p>

<p>Thank you for booking:<br>
{{service_name}} | {{booking_start_time| date: "dd LLLL y | t"}}</p>

<p>Please pay for your booking prior to arriving. You can do so by clicking <a href = "{{booking_payment_request_url}}"> here</a>.</p>

<p>We look forward to seeing you soon!</p>

When a customer books, they will then automatically receive a booking confirmation email which will be constructed using the template we have saved above. This will then display as so:

In order to ensure communications only include the payment link when you tick the send payment request button when you add a booking, you can use the variable within an if statement:

<p>Hi {{customer_firstname}},</p>

<p>Thank you for booking:<br>
{{service_name}} | {{booking_start_time| date: "dd LLLL y | t"}}</p>

{% if booking_payment_request_url %}
<p>{{ booking_payment_request_url | link:"Please pay for your booking prior to arriving."}}.</p>
{% endif %}

<p>We look forward to seeing you soon!</p>
