How does Atoa work for salons and clinics?

Atoa is a payment solution designed with beauty businesses in mind. Take payments anywhere using QR codes and payment links, which start a payment in your customer’s UK bank app. Funds are released instantly with unbeatably low fees. Pay-as-you-earn with no gotcha contracts or sneaky hidden fees.

Once set up, you can add your employees and set up QR code payments at workstations or in treatment rooms.

All your client needs is a smartphone with their UK bank app on it so you can accept payments from them. They scan the QR code or click a link to complete payment in their browser and bank app: nothing extra to download and nothing to learn.

How much can I save using Atoa?

Our maximum rate of 0.6% works out at about 6p in fees per £1. Instant payments with an unbeatably low rate can help boost your salon’s cash flow, giving you time to focus on your treatment game.

Do I have to use the app?

Atoa has a smartphone app and dashboard function, which can be used on a desktop computer or laptop at reception. Choose which one works best for you.

Can I take deposits and remote bookings with Atoa?

Atoa payment links can bring upfront deposits and remote payments to your business. You can send the link directly to clients by SMS, WhatsApp, or email, which saves them from sharing sensitive card details over the phone. It’s GDPR compliant and makes life easier for both your salon and customers.

Can I use Atoa for walk-in and first-time appointments?

All your client needs is a smartphone with their UK bank app on for you to take payments from them using Atoa. They scan the QR code or click a link to complete payment in their browser and bank app: nothing extra to download and nothing to learn.
