Commission fees

  • Slick does not charge a commission for booking fee for your customers. They are your customers, not ours so why should we take a commission by allowing them to book online? Our subscription includes unlimited, free online bookings via your website, Facebook, Instagram, Google and any marketing communications you send. You don't pay a penny of commission on these bookings.

  • Treatwell charges you 42.5% inc VAT* commission on every new client booking made via Treatwell. That means for the first blow-dry you pay 42.5% commission so on a £40 blow-dry, you have just £23 to cover your rent, overheads, product costs and wages.

    Winning new clients

  • At Slick we give you the tools to attract and retain your clients. Our Book Now buttons and partnership with Facebook and Instagram allow you to run targeted adverts to win new clients online. Our easy and automated client retention system will then ensure they become a loyal and valuable client for years to come. We do not send new clients to you. We give you the tools to run your business the way you want to.

  • Where Treatwell differs to Slick is that they offer a marketplace where clients can find new salons or local deals in their area. Treatwell will send you new clients in exchange for the 42.5% inc VAT commission or booking fee

    Software subscription: monthly not annual

  • At Slick we believe that our software is so good you will never want to leave so we offer simple monthly subscriptions that allow you the flexibility that you get from say Amazon Prime or Netflix

  • Treatwell Pro operates an annual plan where your subscription for the year in full. New client commissions are paid on top of the annual plan.
