As a studio owner, you already know that your paying customers are what drives your business. However, nothing can cause your business to come to a screeching halt faster than issues with delinquent payments or even non-payments.

Expired credit cards and late payments from customers can be a huge headache for you. You have to chase customers down, ask them awkward questions about their finances, and potentially, tell them their membership is canceled. Thankfully, there is a solution. A studio management software like Studio Director makes it easier for your customers to pay. This is how our payment options, powered by PaySimple, can help you.

Setup Bill Pay Online

With the right studio management software, you can allow your students to easily pay for their classes online with a credit card, debit card, or ACH transfer. 

When a student registers for a new class, they enter their information from the online portal, and can instantly pay you for that class. There are some major benefits to accepting credit card payments, but most importantly, you won’t have to remind clients when a new balance is due everything is accessible in the online portal.

One of the most common reasons people don’t pay is simply because it slips their mind and your front desk staff is too busy to remind them during the hustle and bustle between classes. 

Imagine, students being able to handle payments without you needing to be there in person for the transaction. No more chasing payments at the studio with awkward conversations about forgotten checkbooks or credit cards. Outstanding balances can be paid any time, even if it’s after the studio has closed for the day.

Process Payments Automatically

In addition to allowing your students to pay their bills online, you can also set up recurring payments that will charge their accounts automatically. 

It’s as easy as entering the amount owed and running  the monthly or quarterly payment for your business on the due date. Without any additional effort, your students will be current on their monies owed.

Handle Expired Credit Card Issues

In the event that a client tries to pay a bill with an expired credit card, or there is an issue with a recurring payment, they will be notified immediately via email. 

You won’t have to worry about asking them for a new credit card to add to their file, let alone keep track of if it’s going to expire soon. All of that is handled on your behalf with our studio management software.

Manage Payments for Events and Supplies 

You can also set up any and all associated event or recital fees to be managed online instead of having to manually keep track of who has paid and who hasn’t. If your classes require certain supplies for your students, like costumes, those payments can be managed online as well. 

Clients can go online, order what they need, and pay for it – all you have to do is fill the order and have it ready for them to pick up when they are in the studio. Our studio management software will also keep you informed as to how many of those supplies are remaining in your inventory so that you can replenish them when needed. 

It’s like having a full-time employee managing all the heavy lifting for you for one low cost each month!
