Fresha, the world’s No.1 free appointment scheduling software for barbers and men’s grooming professionals is now transforming online retail potential with the launch of Fresha Store. This brand new feature, available now within the Fresha platform, is also giving barbers and their clients a new online shopping experience, so they can buy and use their favourite professional grooming products at home in between appointments.
With over 60,000 barbershops, hair salons, beauty and wellness partners and 200,000 professionals managing their appointments, promoting their services and protecting their incomes with Fresha, now partners create an online store, promote and sell products, and collect payments all from within Fresha to:
– Impress clients with a professionally designed store
– Offer clients delivery or pick-up options
– Collect online payments with Fresha Payment Processing
Create your Fresha online shop easily and quickly!
Fresha has made creating your own online store so simple and intuitive, even barbers with limited technical skills can get up and running in minutes!
“With just a few clicks, you can personalise your store by adding logos, a store name and description, and even add social links, so all your clients will know that you’re now selling professional grooming products online,” says Fresha co-founder Nick Miller.
Adding products to your online store couldn’t be easier either. Formerly known as Shedul, Fresha recommends taking high quality images to showcase your products at their best and provides help with a dedicated blog to help you take really beautiful product images.
It’s time to tell your clients about your new store!
Once your store is set up, it generates a unique store link. Using this link on your website, in social media content and in the marketing emails and text messages available within the Fresha platform makes it easy to tell your clients all about your new store.
With delivery and collection options available, barbers can also offer clients the choice of collecting their purchase from the barbershop, reserving it for when they attend their next appointment, or they can ship items directly to their clients home address or workplace.
Online payments that are easy, contactless and upfront
To ensure smooth and seamless payments for your online store, Fresha Payment Processing is the perfect way to collect online payments. First, barbershops receive money upfront, and of course, it’s contactless too. And if for any reason a refund needs to be processed for a purchase made on your online store, that’s easily done at the click of a button.
When activated, Fresha simply charges a transaction fee of 1.29% + 20p, so partners only pay as they sell products.
William Zeqiri, Fresha CEO and founder: “The potential for online retail in the barbering industry is huge, and many have yet to take advantage of that. Fresha Store is a big step in the right direction, as we’ve made it easy to create a store within Fresha. As part of our feature mix, it means our partners have everything in one place, which simplifies their business lives too. Their clients are comfortable shopping online with other retailers and e-commerce businesses and it’s become a big part of our lives as shopping trends change. Barbering and male grooming businesses need to be part of this transformation, and now they can.”
