Hold on, is it really free?!

Yes! Our Essential plan is completely free and gives you all of the essential tools you need to book and manage your clients’ appointments hassle-free.

Will my clients get automatic reminders?

Yes! Tuft sends out automated booking reminders, confirmation messages, reschedule notifications, cancellation notifications and even prompts your clients to leave reviews. Tuft is able to send email, app push notifications and if you’re on a Pro plan you’ll also benefit from unlimited SMS.

Can I send out contracts?

Absolutely! Tuft allows you to define your terms and conditions/ clip-off policies and requires your customers to accept them before they are able to make a booking through the app. If you have clients who don’t use the app, Tuft allows you to to email your contract off to them instead.

Do my clients have to use the app?

Tuft was designed to relieve you of your admin burden, which is where the client app comes into play. However, we understand that some clients can be tech-phobic which is why Tuft is able to work with or without the client app.

Can my clients book through my website?

We’re working on a special widget that you’ll be able to embed on your own website for clients to make bookings directly through you. This feature will be available to Pro users soon.

Is there an app for me?

Not yet, but it’s coming! Tuft works on all devices – mobile, tablet and computer via a web browser. Anywhere you can access the internet you can access Tuft.

Can I take deposits and/or full payments?

Absolutely! Tuft allows you to charge either a fixed, percentage-based or combination deposit helping to reduce no-shows. You’re also able to take full payments in two convenient ways – through the app or by sending your client an SMS payment link.

Deposits, SMS and in-app payments subject to a 2.5% + 5p charge

Does Tuft work with a POS card machine?

Tuft does not currently offer a card machine – however these will be coming soon. For now, you’re able to choose between two convenient payment methods – app payments or SMS payment links.
