Barber shops are typically known as places for people to get their hair cut, but they are so much more than that. They are places where clients can have their beards trimmed, get a scalp massage, enjoy a facial, or have their hair shampooed. Many people that go to barbershops claim to have a spiritual connection with the place. People from all walks of life are able to go to barber shops and join together to enjoy open dialogue. People come together, talk about style, and discuss their lives in these venues. Barber shops typically offer walk-in service, but most barber shops are happy to book an appointment with your favorite barber online, in person or over the phone. 

Operating a barber shop requires skill both in the art of handling the style needs of clients but also in business management. Staffing requirements need to be considered along with facility design and maintenance, marketing and accounting. Most barber shops today are managed by on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) system that handle front and back-office business operations. Barbers have traditionally favored dealing in cash. Many barbers service an ATM in the shop for clients to withdraw cash and pay with bills instead of with credit or debit cards because of the fees associated with such transactions. Cashless barber shop payment methods are on the rise simplifying client check out and elevating the overall payment experience.  

Cashless barber shop payments are here to stay in this industry. Text to pay, email to pay, tap to pay, dip to pay and swipe to pay options are features many barbershops are utilizing. With electronic payment options like e-wallets like Apple Pay or Google Pay, certain barbers opt to charge clients a surcharge or a cash discount as it offsets the cost to use a credit card and debit card. Payment Integrator integrates payments with software management systems and has stand alone payment processing terminals that are P2PE enabled and PCI Compliant.
