Product update: Request payments with our PayPal and Stripe integrations

Simplify billing and reduce no-shows with an integrated payments account.

We are excited to offer two payment integrations on our Pro plan. Now your invitees can submit full or even partial payments securely when they schedule an event with you. Just connect your PayPal or Stripe account by visiting the integrations page on your Calendly account menu to start requesting payment with any event type—whether it’s one-on-one, group, collective or round robin.

Collecting payment during scheduling reduces the billing process to one step. With PayPal, the invitee can choose to log in with their PayPal account or enter their credit card details to complete the payment. With Stripe, the invitee is shown purchase details and asked for their credit card number and expiration date as they confirm their event time. Your selected payment processor (PayPal or Stripe) will email a receipt to your invitee, and payment will be automatically routed to your associated account.

Display the confirmation page in the way that makes the most sense for your business and include your own payment and refund terms. Currently, payments are accepted in US Dollars and language is displayed in English.

    I’ve been waiting for this ability for quite a long time and am disappointed that it didn’t begin with PayPal. I’m not a Stripe user and may be incorrect but believe PayPal has a larger user base. Is Paypal integration in the plans and if so when is it scheduled?

  • Dave Coker

    I’m not a Stripe user. I have Square. How do their charges compare?

  • Frank Trotman

    Is there a way to add a coupon code for a discount to what they pay?

    • Calendly

      Hi Frank –

      That is a good question! Could you email support@calendly.com with this question? That way we can exchange more characters and give you the best possible answer!

      • Roman Dovgopol

        As of now, an alternative would be to create a secret event (accessible via a code) and charge a different (lower) amount there.

  • BB

    Is there a capability for Venmo? Many of my customers are on the Dave Ramsey system and prefer to pay cash.

    • Calendly

      Hi BB –

      We don’t currently support Venmo but we will keep it in mind as we consider other payment options! Thank you for your input.

      Please feel free to email support@calendly.com if you have any other questions!

      • Yes please add Venmo!!! All my clients use this. It’s owned by PayPal, so since you’re already working with them it shouldn’t be too hard to integrate!

  • Blake Toves

    Great feature, I handle everything through stripe. Thanks @calendlyblog:disqus

  • Do you plan to integrate with Braintree?

    • Calendly

      Hi Rátkai –

      We are planning to release more payment options in the future. We will keep this platform in mind as we do. Thank you for your input!

  • Heather Holt

    Excited about the new feature! Is it possible to set up recurring payments through Calendly/Stripe for payment plans?

  • Would love you to collect Aussie dollars!

    • Calendly

      Hi Brenton –

      We are currently working on accepting forms of payment other than US dollars. Thanks for this input, we will be sure to pass it along to our product team!

      • Why are you limiting payment integration to just Pro users? Why not charge other paid plans a flat fee such as $1 per transaction. if you could make a buck off of providing us the convenience of stripe integration – why wouldnt you? I dont need a pro plan — prob wont for foreseeable future…so charge other PAID Plan members a buck per transaction.

        • Calendly

          Hi –

          Thank you for this feedback, we appreciate your input! Could you add this to our idea portal? These ideas go straight to our developers and help us improve the product to best meet your needs.

          You can add that idea here if you’d like: https://help.calendly.com/hc/en-us/community/topics

  • Brian Henderson

    I just want to be different from the other commenters and say that Stripe is all I use and I love it. Thank you for this update! 🙂

    • Calendly

      Hi Brian –

      Thanks for your positive feedback! We are so happy to hear you are enjoying this new feature. And we are always here to help if you need anything.

      Happy scheduling!

  • Mike

    Please add £ GBP currency ASAP. I’d love to share this with my UK clients.

    • Calendly

      Hi Mike –

      We are working hard to roll out other currency options and we will be sure to let you know as soon as we release them! Thank you for your input.

    • Jaime Gil

      Yes please, add this ASAP! Very needed!

      • Simon Kelly

        Yes, please add GBP.

        • Calendly

          Simon –

          Thank you for your input as well! We will take this feedback directly to our product team. And we will be sure to let you know if this currency option is added!

          Thanks!

      • Calendly

        Hi Jamie –

        Thank you for letting us know you are interested in GBP as well. We will be sure to let you know if we release this as a currency option!

        You can always reach our team at support@calendly.com if you have any other questions. Thanks!

  • Donna Gibson

    Is this going to have charging in GBP capabilities as this is no to me use otherwise. 🙁

    • Calendly

      Hi Donna,

      At this time, the PayPal and Stripe integrations support USD only, but we’re looking into other currency options and will keep you posted if we release GBP.

      Thank you for your feedback!

      • Charlize

        I upgraded and then realised that GBP isn’t an option. I really liked how Calendly would have fitted into my workflow but it looks like I’ll have to cancel. This question was raised 5 months ago and gets the same copy and paste answer. Such a shame. They don’t want my money.

        • Calendly

          Hi Charlize –

          I apologize for the inconvenience this caused you! I understand it can be frustrating to see responses from our team without a clear timeline. However, I can say they are not copy and paste and we are hard at work to bring these options to our users. It does take some time as we work to ensure every feature we roll out is perfect and functions exactly as it should! We value you as a customer and again I apologize that we could not provide you with these currency options right now.

          We hope to have you back once we do have more currency options!

  • Rasheeda Winfield

    can we give customers the option of paying with both?

    • Calendly

      Hi Rasheeda –

      Currently, you cannot offer the option to pay with both. The event type only accepts the payment type you select in the event type settings. An example can be seen here for PayPal: https://help.calendly.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004975234-PayPal#collect

      However, this is a good idea and I will pass it along directly to our product team. We will let you know if this feature is added!

      Please feel free to email our team at support@calendly.com if you have any other questions. Thank you!

  • When is € added?

    • Calendly

      Hi Dennis-

      We are currently working on accepting forms of payment other than US dollars, so I cannot provide an exact time on when we will support your currency. However, we appreciate your input and will be sure to pass it along to our product team!

  • Chris Pyak

    Hello, I would like to know if you finally offer payment in EUR as a currency? For citizens of the EU that would be neccessary.

    • Calendly

      Hi Chris –

      We do not support EUR as a currency at this time. We understand that this is important to you and will pass this feedback to our product team right away! We will be sure to let you now if it is added. Thanks for your patience!
