How does Paperbell compare with other tools?
Integrate Payments & Scheduling Into One Beautiful Client Experience

Stop Using a Scheduling Tool and Start Using a Run-My-Whole Business Tool

How Does Paperbell Compare? Common Questions
Can my clients schedule themselves?
Yes! Our online coaching platform allows clients to see when you’re available and pick them best time for them, all in their own local time zone.
Can I sell sessions-per-month repeating packages? (subscriptions)
Yes! Paperbell allows you to decide how many sessions a client will have per month, then bill them on an ongoing basis until they cancel.
Can you coordinate between different time zones?
Yes, you tell us what time zone you’re in, and your client tells us what time zone they’re in. Paperbell automatically does scheduling in everyone’s local time zone
Do you integrate with Zoom?
Yes, just connect your Zoom account, and Paperbell automatically includes the call-in details on the calendar invite for you and your client.
Can I use it for free sessions?
Yes, you’re in control! You create your own packages with any price and any number of sessions.
Can I see an example of someone using Paperbell?
Yes! Here's an example of a Paperbell shop page, package page, and website integration. You can go ahead and book a free session, to see the entire experience from your customer's perspective.
Are you GDPR compliant?
Yes! Your European customers are safe with us. (Whilst our customers live all over the world, Paperbell is based in the United Kingdom.)
Will it work for in-person appointments?
Paperbell was designed for online businesses who primarily meet with their customers online. While you can use Paperbell if you sometimes meet with clients face to face, there are better tools out there if your business is primarily booking appointments at physical locations.
Can I create payment plans?
Yes! With Paperbell, you can create payment plans to allow your clients to pay for online coaching packages in regular monthly installments over time.
Is Paperbell’s scheduling functionality as good as pure scheduling tools?
Yes! We use scheduling best practices to ensure that you and your clients have an excellent scheduling experience. With Paperbell you can create A/B schedules, create buffer times between appointments, and more.
Both you and your client will automatically see everything in your own local time zones. We can do everything that the standalone scheduling tools like Acuity™ or Calendly™ can do, plus a whole lot more.
Do you have contract signing?
Yes! We integrate with industry leader HelloSign to provide your client contracts. There's no need for a HelloSign account; unlimited contracts are included in your online coaching software.
Can my clients schedule appointments and pay at the same time?
Yes, finally! Paperbell ties these two systems together for you and your clients.
Do you integrate with Google Calendar?
Yes, Paperbell checks in with any Google Calendars you’ve synched, to make sure you’re truly available before a client can book a spot. Paperbell also sends a Google Calendar event to both you and your client.
Can I add my logo/custom branding?
Yes! Paperbell allows you to customize the entire client checkout experience with your own logo and branding.
Can you create gaps between appointments?
Yes, just tell us how long you’d like between each appointment, and our scheduler will make it happen, automatically.
Can I create invoices?
Our system simplifies and eliminates the need for invoices. Instead of creating an invoice, you simply send your client the link to purchase a package with you. Clients pay and schedule in one clean workflow.
Can I integrate Paperbell into my website?
Yes! You can link to your booking pages or embed a booking calendar directly on your website. (Here's an example.) You can also link from your social media, email marketing, or anywhere else on the web.
How many coaches can I have on one account?
The Paperbell coaching platform was designed to be used for one service provider. If you have several coaches at your practice, we recommend purchasing a Paperbell account for each coach.
Which currencies do you support?
You can charge your clients in USD, AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY, NZD, SEK or SGD. If you need another one, just email us and let us know. 🙂
Can I send reminder emails?
