A strategic partnership

Stripe, a renowned financial infrastructure platform for businesses, has recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with Google Workspace. The goal is to provide a more streamlined way to manage paid appointment bookings through Google Calendar. This integration, based on Stripe Connect and Stripe Checkout, allows customers to make payments seamlessly and instantly during the booking process, right from the Google Calendar page.

Seamlessly integrated process

Imagine booking a session with your favorite therapist or arranging a private lesson with your trusted instructor. With this new feature, you can do so seamlessly. Businesses can link their Stripe account and set the price for their offered services. Customers, in turn, can book a desired appointment through the Google Calendar booking page. Once the preferred time is chosen, payment details can be entered directly on the platform. Additionally, businesses can restrict access to the appointment until payment is made, ensuring that each booking is confirmed and guaranteed.

An advantage for businesses and professionals

This innovative collaboration offers numerous advantages for businesses and professionals. “Making appointment booking and payment incredibly easy for customers means reducing administrative work and increasing revenue for businesses,” enthusiastically explained Mike Clayville, Chief Revenue Officer of Stripe. With a seamless booking and payment experience, businesses can focus more on delivering high-quality services to their customers, saving precious time in financial transaction management.

Optimization of payments in Google Calendar

A particularly attractive feature of this integration is the payment optimization offered by Stripe Checkout. Google Workspace provides businesses with a meticulously designed payment module that allows them to accept payments through over 40 different payment methods. A study conducted by Stripe demonstrated that businesses utilizing these payment optimizations could experience up to a 10.5% increase in revenue. This means that the collaboration between Stripe and Google Calendar not only simplifies the payment process but can also have a significant positive impact on business finances.

A future of efficiency and simplicity

This new feature is poised to reshape how you schedule and manage your daily activities. Whether you’re an independent professional offering consultations or a company managing time-based services, this integration between Stripe and Google Calendar provides you with an easier and more intuitive way to handle bookings and payments. With the support of a powerful partnership like this, the future of online bookings seems even brighter.
