Right now, we focus on empowering each and every individual barber to be able to manage their clientele, schedule and payments, however, we recognize that some shops operate differently. If your shop’s owner actively manages the barbershop, talk to them about theCut to see if we’re a good fit.

By default, yes you do. This is to ensure that you are available during the date and time the client has requested.
If you rarely find yourself declining appointment requests, you can enable Auto Confirmation from the Booking Preferences Settings in the app.
You can set how far in advance clients must book from the Booking Preferences Settings in the app under Last Minute Booking.
Yes you can. This is as easy as creating an appointment in you calendar. Your availability will be blocked off for any appointments that are created in your calendar. If you’d like to block off a few hours or an entire day, you can do so by creating an appointment or event in your Calendar. When doing so, you’ll have the option to create an all-day event.
Currently, Barbers receive a notification in the morning of how many upcoming appointments they have for that day. Clients receive reminder notifications 2 hours before their upcoming appointment if they’ve enabled notifications from theCut.
You can send a message to all of your clients at once using the Client Blast feature. This message only appears as a notification and disappears once opened, so keep it short and informative. A notification drawer to store Client Blast messages is coming VERY soon.
Also, you and your clients can message each other under an appointment. Tap on the appointment they had booked and you’ll be able to start a conversation within.
Absolutely! Send us an email with your name and shop location at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to send you a promotional package.

To set up a Cancellation or No-show policy you’ll have to have Mobile Pay enabled to accept payments. In order to properly enforce your cancellation & No-show Policy, you’ll have to require all clients to add their card on file at booking and once you’ve set your policy, your clients will see your Cancellation & No-show rules.
Just because a client booked an appointment with their card doesn’t mean you have to process the payment. With the new checkout process, you still have the option of accepting cash or in shop payments from those clients who prefer it.
Under Booking Preferences in the Settings tab of the app, you can set your Payment Options, enable Auto Confirm, Last Minute Booking and Availability Intervals.
Payment Options - Choose to accept either Mobile Pay, In Shop (cash), or both.
Auto Confirm - Every appointment requested is automatically confirmed. Notification of your confirmation is sent to your client.
Last Minute Booking - Prevent Clients from booking last minute appointments.
Availability Intervals - Set acceptable times for appointments.
Double check the address you provided to make sure it’s accurate. If you include any extra text in your address field it may cause errors when being displayed. For example, ‘Across the street from Denny’s’ or adding a phone number in Line2 of your address.
You will receive a reminder 2 hours before your appointment as long as you have enabled notifications for theCut app on your device.
Yes, you can. Simply book multiple back to back appointments if you need to. Just leave a comment when booking so that the barber knows who the appointment is for. When you have the ability to select multiple services, you’ll be able to book both appointments at one time.
Be sure to cancel the appointment with your barber as soon as you can to avoid any cancellation or no-show fees.
Yes, we currently do not have a web version. This is something we are considering building soon.
The app allows us to provide extra features that would most likely not be available in a web version like the ability to receive notifications regarding appointments, payments, and comments. Also, with the app we can offer clients the ability to message their barber, upload pics of their favorite haircuts, get reminders and client blasts from you and more.
No monthly fee!!!
The app is free to download and use for barbers.
The app is free to download and use for clients. Clients may be charged a service fee for any payments made through the app.
Mobile Pay makes handling credit card transactions simple and easy. Enabling Mobile Pay as a barber allows clients to tip and pay for their appointments while booking.
You can choose to have your funds deposited directly to your bank or to your Venmo account.
If your deposit method is your bank account, it can take 1-3 business days for your funds to reach your account. Transactions completed over the weekend typically get deposited on Monday or Tuesday.
If your deposit method is Venmo, you should see your funds the same day or the next day.
If you haven't received your funds within the timeframe for your deposit method, reach out to us at email@example.com and we'll get to the bottom of it. But first, make sure you’ve completed the appointment booked with Mobile Pay.
You have to go through the Checkout process and tap ‘Complete’ on an appointment in order to begin processing the transaction. Completing the appointment tell us that the client had shown up and received a haircut which then triggers the transaction. We recommend you do so while the client is still in the chair (reasons why? insufficient funds, inactive cards)
Once the transaction status becomes disbursed, the funds have been transferred to your bank to then be deposited into your account. That process is usually very quick, but it can vary depending on the bank.
If you want to update your Mobile Pay information, email us the new information at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make the change for you.
You can track your Mobile Pay appointments in the Settings tab of the app under Mobile Pay. We're working on a suite of features to improve the Mobile Pay experience with analytics, projected earnings and much more.
If the amount disbursed to you through Mobile Pay is more than $20,000 and you have conducted more than 200 transactions, we will to send you a 1099-K form during tax season. However, you can reach out to us at email@example.com and we can prepare and income report detailing all of your transactions processed through the app.
A 2.95% processing fee applies to all payments made through the app. In addition, clients are charged a 95 cent processing fee for appointments booked with Mobile Pay.
For security purposes, in certain situations, we require additional information before we can fully enable Mobile Pay for your account. Usually, a copy/photo of your driver's license will do the trick. You can email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reach out to you if we need any more information.
Nope. Clients are not charged until AFTER the time of their appointment once the barber completes the checkout process. (delayed checkouts)
The number one cause of this is incorrect banking information. If that's the case, the funds will get deposited, once we've updated your account with the correct information. Email the correct information to email@example.com. The sooner we have your details the sooner we’ll get you updated.
