Square launches appointment booking app into Ireland

Square Appointments has launched in Ireland, offering hair and beauty salons online scheduling, automatic reminders and payment processing to manage their business.

It offers a combined solution that integrates booking software with an all-in-one point of sale built for the sector. Salons can add a Booking button to your existing webpage or if you don't have a website, Square will help you build one for free. 

The system enables salons to sell online, look at real-time sales reports and sync inventories, in addition to manage a salon's team and create client profiles.

Clients will receive automated reminders of their appointments and can easily buy eGift Cards for treatments at the salon.

Commenting on their launch into Ireland, Jason Lalor, Executive Director for Square Europe, says:

“Ireland represents a significant opportunity for Square Appointments. The Irish beauty and personal care industry has close to 10,000 businesses producing high revenue, demonstrating the demand for Square Appointments in the market. From speaking directly to our sellers, we know that they are spending so much time on the phone booking and rebooking clients, meaning they are likely to be missing out on new customers who prefer online booking. In our other markets we've found that 36% of bookings in this industry are made at a time when salons are closed, Square Appointments takes away that barrier with a service that is available around the clock and we are proud to make this available to business owners across Ireland.”
