Looking to Edit a Service’s Price in the Appointment Page? You Can’t!

This field is not editable on the system.

A common question our support team raises is a simple one: why can’t the price be edited while booking an appointment.

This is because of a few reasons:

  • Price discounts should be done at the invoice, pre-invoice or estimate level. This will allow you to clearly track your discounts in your sales reports and treat those discounts the way they are supposed to be treated: as an expense!
    • Because invoices and estimates are linked to appointments, editing the prices in both places would be redundant slow you (and your system) way down.
  • Another reason is because the business owner is not always the one booking the appointment, and we want our system to ensure the pricing is set by the owner.
    • Pricing menu updates are only editable by managers and owners.

All this being said, you have several easy work-arounds based on what you’re looking to do:

Special Discounts to Certain Clients:

  1. Select the service you want with the standard pricing.
  2. Save the appointment
  3. Go back to appointment and press generate bill
  4. Apply discount to this “pre-invoice”
  5. When appointment is ready for checkout, checkout this discounted invoice linked to the appointment.
  6. All set!

Price Not Known When Making Appointment

  1. Create a service called consultation, diagnostic or evaluation. If you charge for this put the service price in as the.
    1. Alternatively, if you know a certain service will always have a variety of prices, enter the price as 0.00.
  2. When you meet with the client, complete your evaluation.
  3. Create either an estimate OR a pre-invoice (e.g. Invoice in Draft Status) by pressing generate bill or generate estimate on the appointment
  4. This will link the estimate or the draft invoice to the appointment
