With Bookamat you can choose how to run your business. If you want clients to pay before attending classes, Bookamat can help you collect payment before releasing client bookings. Or if you want to allow clients to pay after attending classes, Bookamat lets you to "activate" client bookings, releasing them for scheduling, so you can take payment later. The choice is yours.

Can I manage and make new bookings on behalf of my clients?
Bookamat allows businesses to schedule activities on any day including
public holidays. Where bookings should be prevented on certain days (e.g. December / January holidays), simply go to the My Business > Service Manager > Holidays page and add the 'to' and 'from' dates for when individual staff members will be unavailable or for when the business will be closed.
