Take payments at the time of booking

Hi Joel, when will this function be available?


Hi All,

I don’t have an ETA for it yet.

As for payment options, we’re still considering two:

  • Plugging your own Stripe account in.
  • Handling the billing ourselves so we just take the charge and settle to your bank account.

I’m not sure which way it will go yet.



The cost of the initial assessment.

Will we be able to offer online payments as an option, but still let clients book without pre-payment if they prefer? Or will all have to prepay if the feature is activated? With some of your competitors it’s either all or none and some offer a choice. Just wondering which way you’re going.


Hi Joel,

Any idea when this feature is likely to go live? I’m trialling cliniko at present and this feature is crucial for my business in the near future!

Kind regards,



Hi Joel (and everyone)

Really keen to know how close we are with this feature. It would be a massive step on…



Hi Joel ,

I seem to be a debt collector some days not a practitioner so this feature is critical to my business atm, can you confirm this will definitely be an option ,

If you are integrating a payment system…can we have it do schedule payments automatically. (like a subscription) We have people that pay a weekly or monthly amount. One of our other offices has this feature and it’s bliss for making sure payments occur rather than checking off bank automatic payments on a spreadsheet and adding them manually.

Could it handle stripe storing payment details so client doesn’t need to pull out their card each time…we just click to bill and it authorises payment…they get an email or text to say it has just occurred. It means staff aren’t getting bogged down with using an eftpos terminal or swiping cards each time. Our clients have loved it before as it stops them having to go to front desk to pay when they have already prebooked a bunch of appointments.

Any update Cliniko with a month?
