Spotii and Vaasara launch cost-free payment plan to bolster over 600 beauty salons and spas across the UAE.

November 18, 2020

First-in-region ‘Glow Now, Pay Later’ payment plan empowers beauty salons and spas to better engage their customers.

Spotii, the innovative UAE-based payment technology platform, and Vaasara, the revolutionary online booking app for salons and spas, have announced a strategic partnership to enable a first-in-region “Glow Now, Pay Later” cost-free payment plan through the Vaasara app. Customers can avail this new payment option at over 600 beauty salons and spas across the UAE.

This initiative continues a joint commitment by Spotii and Vaasara to cultivate and grow a vibrant community of salons and spas in the region, making it easy to find your ideal Salon or Spa and splitting the cost of that service across four equal cost-free instalments.

How does “Glow Now, Pay Later” work? First, customers book the services they love at their favorite salons and spas on Vaasara app. The Vaasara app provides a seamless digital experience allowing customers to find the ideal service and stylist for their personalized needs. Customers can use Vaasara to make contactless bookings, which avoids overcrowding. The Vaasara app helps customers find hundreds of “safe” salons and spas marked with #MySalonIsSafe. Once the consumer has picked her ideal salon or spa, instead of paying the full amount upfront, she only pays 25% upfront with any debit or credit card using the new Spotii payment option conveniently integrated into the app. The remaining amount is split over 3 equal instalments and automatically paid in the future. The best part of all, this service is completely free of charge for customers. There’s absolutely no interest, no cost and no catch to pay with Spotii!

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Vaasara, who share Spotii’s commitment to bringing together communities and providing a superior consumer experience. More than ever consumers are demanding flexible ways to pay and we want to offer this to everyone on Vaasara’s platform.” emphasized Anuscha Iqbal, CEO, Spotii.

“Collaborating with Spotii marks the beginning of an exciting journey for us and our customers! Spotii’s disruptive payment options offer an unmatched level of flexibility that will enhance our customers’ experience at every level thereby cementing the path for a very fruitful partnership.” Deepti Mohanty, CEO, Vaasara

This industry-disrupting partnership helps customers safely book at their favourite Salons and Spas, while spreading the cost of vital beauty/spa services, reducing the difficulty of making full payments in one go. Salons and spa businesses are given a significant boost, using Spotii and Vaasara technology to attract valuable customers and alleviate current struggles to maintain critical cashflow.
