About Vagaro

Vagaro is a web-based solution for salon and fitness center owners to promote their services and connect with customers through ‘Vagaro.Com’ website and Vagaro’s mobile app. It is a B2C platform wherein salons, spa and studios can register and create a profile, advertise their brand, promote new events and book appointments/classes with customers.

With Vagaro, business owners can create a customized website with complete information about their venue, staff bios, services they offer and their working hours. Salons can display which booking slots are available for the day, week or month and allow customers to book an appointment at a time that's convenient to them. Vagaro allows users to send text and email notifications to customers, confirming the appointment, then send alerts and reminders for appointments booked.

Users can build a customer database by importing contacts from an excel or .csv file or pulling contacts directly from their mobile. Customers can post feedback on a Salon's Vagaoro page, for them to view. Salon owners can also manage internal activities such as generating sales & service reports, monitoring business progress with real time analytics, clock-in & clock-out, staff attendance, and map with payroll service.

Vagaro solution offers an integrated point of sale (POS) feature to sell gift certificates, products or packages to customers online and via mobile. Currently, Vagaro offers its services across Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and USA.

Best merchant software

Overall I am having a great experience.

Overall I am having a great experience.

Pros

I love the fact there is a 24/7 staff to help with issues. I hated how other competitors made you email them to get a response.

Cons

Pricing. Everything is $10 additional that all.

Easy to setup and use

Reviewed on 2021-01-17

Pros

Very affordable for a small business/sole-proprietor. Easy to use, they have videos that show you how to set things up. You can create your own forms or use stock ones they have. The booking site works so much better than SquareUp and doesn't have random maintenance for no reason. Also, WAY cheaper than Mindbody.

Cons

As a massage therapist, I have many clients that want to book extras with their sessions, like aromatherapy. Vagaro doesn't allow for an extra to be added, so I have to book them as a separate appointment then make it a double booking.

I’m pretty mad that i started. I should have not been so conservative when i opened my gym and went with my gut. I’m in the transition of getting out. ALOT of client credit cards to transfer. Not easy. Not fun. Choose wisely

Pros

It has reviews on its page. And customer service responds pretty quick

Cons

The marketing service wasn’t what I was expecting at all. And not what it was made up to be. I’ll be using the calendar and payment system for a little bit longer. Till I can transition everything smoothly. If I could do it faster i would. You can’t see payments transition like other payment company’s. Every feature has some type of limitation. I don’t believe they specialize in anything. I wanted to use them cuz I thought they would be a “all in one” and save me money. But it was a terrible idea.
- EVERYTHING HAS TO BE PUBLIC
- TAGGING PEOPLE FOR MARKETING IS A JOKE!
- They have no where to store leads. Only customers.
- you don’t have ANY flexibility building the website
- the way your money transfers is a pain in the butt to keep track of.
- The membership system is the most inconvenient thing on the planet. You get a notificaition but there’s no feature that it will automatically recharge and try again.
- The customized app there’s no flexability too... they want ya to pay out the ass to just have a place for people to schedule.
- the Percentages they take is CRAZYYY high.... anything over 4000 dollars they automatically take an extra 4% or something as an add on.
- terrible business choice for

Response from Vagaro

Hello Jake,

Vagaro is not designed to be a sales-driven application in which you store leads etc., we are business management and scheduling software. We do have marketing campaign options available through both email and text message communication, and we provide dashboard level visibility into the efficacy of these efforts.

The customized app is competitively priced, based on our research into other similar companies that offer it.

Financial reporting feature allows you to easily check deposits from within the software.

To have your clients book online you do need a public listing on the Vagaro website, but you also have the option of hiding your listing if you prefer.

The marketing tool allows you to use a number of different filters, but to customize lists would require you to use client tagging.

Our merchant services rates do not increase if you process more payments, and you can always select a merchant services plan that suits your needs.

Regards,
Dan C.

My experience has been positive so far but it does have some problems that need to be worked on so the system can be the best on the market Ever!

Pros

I love the fact that I can easily book a client and rebook a client. The calendar is set up very nicely and organized. I have used a lot of systems in the past and this one is the best I have used. I love that I can also easily move a client's appointment to a different day and time without cancelling and rescheduling it.

Cons

I do not like that the software has some problem when a client is searching (anytime) for a service in vagaro and my page does not show up because (anytime) doesn't mean (anytime) it means at that moment. Which is very frustrating because anytime should mean search anytime. With covid and hours changing that is causing us to lose business because our company is only by appointment. This needs to be fixed. I also do not like that you can't add time in for cleaning. With covid happening I should be able to have a time slot that is for cleaning 30 minutes so a client cannot book during that time. Another flaw.

Best CMS for Single Chair salons

Reviewed on 2021-01-22

Pros

It's easy to use. The basic service is enough to operate a business. To give your business a boost, add on services are offered at a reasonable price. The customer service is outstanding and readily available 14 hours a day M-S.

Cons

Some of the add ons I might have appreciated in the base price like some of the other systems do. You can't open days up in the schedule if they are not your regular days without opening them up to infinity. For instance, if I work only Tuesdays and I want to work 1 Monday a month. I cant just open that one Monday, I have to open all Mondays in the system or manually blockout the Mondays I don't want to work.

Response from Vagaro

Hi Yeefah, we just wanted to say thank you so much for your feedback. We love that you are enjoying our software and are happy to help any time you have questions. Thank you!
