Simplify Client Bookings with Partial Payment Deposits on EngineEars

We are excited to announce some new updates to the EngineEars platform developed to further enhance the overall experience between you and your clients!

Enable Payment Deposits for Session Time, Mixing and Mastering

Starting today, we’re excited to introduce a new feature on the EngineEars platform that makes it easier than ever for clients to book your services. You can now enable partial payment deposits for any of your services or studio rooms, streamlining the booking process for both you and your clients.

How It Works

With this new feature, you can set a minimum deposit percentage for bookings, allowing clients to secure your services without having to pay the full amount upfront. This flexibility not only makes it more convenient for clients to book sessions but also ensures you receive a commitment without waiting for the entire payment.

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Log into your EngineEars account.
  2. Click ‘View Profile’.
  3. Once you are on your profile page, click ‘Edit Profile’ on the right hand side of the page.
  4. Next, scroll down to your services and click ‘Edit Service’.
  5. Scroll down this menu and toggle ‘Allow Partial Payments’ on.
  6. Once this option is on, you will need to set the minimum deposit required.
  7. Next, choose your mix/master playback setting. You can choose from: Mix/Master playback not allowed without payment, Mix/Master playback allowed before playback, and Reviews and revisions allowed before payment.
  8. Click ‘Update Service’ at the bottom.
  9. Click ‘Save Profile Changes’ to the right.
  10. Repeat for any other service you offer.

For Studios:

  1. Log into your EngineEars account.
  2. Navigate to your Studio Profile
  3. Click into your Studio Room(s)
  4. Edit the Recording Service on the room
  5. Scroll down this menu and toggle ‘Allow Partial Payments’ on.
  6. Once this option is on, you will need to set the minimum deposit required.
  7. Click ‘Update Service’ at the bottom.
  8. Repeat for any other room you offer.

Example Scenario

Imagine you have a studio session scheduled for next week. You can now require the client to pay 50% of the fee upfront. The remaining balance will be automatically collected by the platform at least 12 hours before the session, ensuring everything is finalized and ready to go.

Similarly, for mixing and mastering projects, clients will need to pay the remaining fees to unlock and complete their projects fully. This ensures a smoother workflow and guarantees that you get paid for your work in a timely manner.

Benefits of Partial Payment Deposits

  • Increased Bookings: Clients are more likely to book your services if they don’t have to pay the full amount upfront.
  • Secure Payments: Partial payments secure your bookings and reduce the risk of last-minute cancellations.
  • Streamlined Workflow: The platform handles the payment collection process, allowing you to focus on your creative work.
  • Client Convenience: Flexible payment options make it easier for clients to manage their budgets and commit to bookings.

We believe this new feature will greatly enhance your experience on EngineEars, making it more convenient for you to manage your bookings and ensuring a smoother payment process. Enable partial payment deposits today and see how it can improve your workflow and client satisfaction. Thank you for being a part of the EngineEars community.
