    SumUp/iZettle pros and cons

    I use Izettle as they had them on offer so only £19 to buy and 1.75% per transaction, I’m mobile so works in each clients house, links to phone, you can set up all treatment costs beforehand and ‘add them to the basket’ or can just put in any amount, I find it really easy to use, it shows you...

    Clients wearing masks

    Sorry if this has been asked, but if we’re mobile, do clients have to wear masks? As I’m in their own home, I wear a type 2 mask and face shield and wear an apron, but wasn’t sure with new legislation if they have to wear one now too?

    First mobile clients - help

    I will say over a sink with a jug saves your back over the years! or if possible (especially since covid) ask them to wash it before you come, try not to compare it to a salon, they will feel comfortable enough in their own home in my experience.

    Colour doesn’t last
