Frequently Asked Questions
FAQs from Coaches
How long after applying for a coaches account will I know whether I am accepted or not?
Confirmation is usually instantaneous, but we say to allow 2 working days, this means we can detect if a account is fake or not. We also check for any duplicated coaches. This said, if you are regersitering your account, it should be instanty accepted. Once you have been accepted you can then select the tier you wish subscribe to.
How much does a coaches account cost per month?
To check out our current prices see our Membership section. These are fixed and the only fee you will be charged for using our platform.
Why when I add a store icon does it not accept the image I upload?
Mostly likely this is because the image you are trying to upload is either too big or too small. The icon should be should be around 400px x 400px (square) as per twitter. If you still have problems, feel free to give us a call and we will sort it for you.
When a client books onto a session with me, how much commission does Equine Bookings take?
0%!! When a client makes a booking with you, you receive 100% of session fee. For example, if you charge £50 for a session, when your client pays for the session you will receive the full £50 into your bank account.
What happens once someone pays for a session with me?
Once a rider pays for their training sessions, the payment is held by Stripe until after the training session has passed. This is to allow for quick refunds if necessary and helps coaches with managing their book keeping. The payments land in your Stripe account within 5 days of the training taking place, where you can then decide where your funds go; may it be straight to your bank account, or held in your Stripe account.
In order for coaches to receive payments they must connect/set up an account with Stripe via their dashboard. Coaches will have to set this up before setting up any lessons or clinics. When setting up your coach account, in the dashboard select Settings > Payment. Here you will be asked connect/set up an account with Stripe. Stripe is quick and easy to set up and gives you control of when the payments from clients goes into your relevant bank account.
If I have to cancel a session, but a client has already paid for it, how do I give them a refund or amend the date/time of the session?
If the event of the booking you wish to refund HAS NOT passed, then as soon as it is cancelled, the refund will be issued automatically by us and there is nothing more you need to do.
If the event of the booking you wish to refund HAS passed, then you will need to issue the refunds manually to your clients. This is due to the funds already being sent to your Stripe Account. Once the date of the event has passed, you will need to do either of the following:
- Contact your clients that require a refund and perform a bank transfer directly to each of them.
- Contact us using the details below and we will be more than happy to assist you in anyway we can.
Amend a booking: If you need to make an adjustment to the time or date of a session, simply go onto the bookings section of your dashboard and select the booking you wish to amend. In here you can then change the time and date of when a session takes place.
