Vagaro’s Financial Relief - COVID-19 Crisis
As the coronavirus crisis continues, many of our small businesses are reeling from the short-term effects on business, and they are anxious about the potential for long-term impact. Yesterday we made an announcement that offered help in this difficult situation, which was appreciated by many, but perhaps we fell short of expectations for some of you. We have always taken pride in the fact that our company caters to businesses of all sizes and I founded this company to build powerful tools at reasonable pricing. I do not intend to forget our roots during this crisis.
I have had the honor of getting to know many of you personally over the years and I have had the privilege of helping your business thrive by designing software solutions guided by your insights and suggestions. Some of you have been loyal to Vagaro for over ten years and now we are here to support you.
It is unclear how long the COVID-19 Pandemic will last, but our intention is to consistently support you throughout the duration of this crisis.
Starting today and for as long as it takes, we will be providing every Vagaro business with the following help each month:
Monthly Discount: $25 Off Subscription
50,000 Email Marketing Messages: FREE
1,000 Text Marketing Messages: FREE
Online Shopping Cart: FREE
These relief measures will enable booth renters and sole proprietors to use Vagaro and the power of all its marketing features for free.
To enable your clients to pitch in and help your business, we have also placed a prominent banner on Vagaro.com. The banner encourages visitors to support businesses affected by COVID-19 by buying gift certificates, memberships, packages or products. Your loyal customers can simply click on the button Find Businesses to Support to search and buy from you online. We have seen an increase of 15% in online shopping. Please do take advantage of that.
Going forward, the entire Vagaro team will be focused completely on developing new features to help you stay connected to customers, some of which will be released in two weeks.

Collect Rent Automatically
Just set an amount, schedule a charge frequency and rent will flow automatically into your business’s bank account. It’s that simple. No more chasing stylists, trainers and others for checks or cash. No more confusion over due dates. Just timely rental payment.
Streamline Your Onboarding
Text or email your renters for their banking and credit card info. With payment information stored automatically to their employee profiles, you no longer have to keep track of routing and credit card numbers for stylists and other new hires.
Keep Digital Renter's Agreements
Create legally binding agreements for salon booth rental, gym rental and others using Vagaro Forms. Sign, store and view full-time and part-time rental contracts digitally in your renters' employee profiles for greater accessibility, transparency and trust.
Two Secure Payment Options
Charge booth renters by credit card, or from their bank account with a low, 1% ACH charge. Setting primary and backup rental payment methods means fewer missed or failed payments and greater peace of mind for salon owners, stylists and other renters.
Deduct Commission from Rent
Automatically deduct a hair stylist's or makeup artist's product sales commission from their booth rent and fees. Less money changing hands for a salon booth rental means less confusion for independent contractors and no need for a 1099 form, which saves you both time during tax season.
View Rental Payment Info & History
Stylists and other booth renters can easily view their payment histories, update their payment information as needed and reference their booth rental agreements from their employee profiles.
Access Clear, Detailed Rental Reports
Easily manage booth rental payment and view your renters’ full payment histories at a glance. In the unlikely event that a booth renter's primary and secondary payment methods fail, you can also keep detailed records of how rent was collected (cash, check, PayPal, etc.) for future reference.
