Customizing Punchpass Software

Whether you have an incredible website with all the bells and whistles or a simple setup with Punchpass as your primary online presence, there are lots of ways to customize Punchpass so it's a cohesive and beautiful part of your business.

We want to help you make a good first impression. So let’s start with your “public Punchpass pages” -- this is where your customers will go to see your class timetable and pass information.

Adding Your Logo

To make things feel like home, we display your logo at the top of your public schedule and pass purchase pages. It's also automatically added to any emails that go out to your customers from Punchpass.

Customizing Your Web Link Name

We give you the opportunity to customize the name of the link that points to your business' public Punchpass pages -- so it's easy for you and your clients to remember.

Here's an example: "Yoga Schmoga" is our sample business name 😉... so we've made sure that name is a part of the url link:

Easy to remember and ready to share!

Sharing Your Punchpass Link

Now that you have a link that's ready to share, your clients can easily add one-touch access to your Punchpass public pages. They can add the icon to their home screen on their smartphone or tablet.... so they can use it like an app. It’s quick and easy and is a great way to keep your business on their mind!

Some other places you can use this link to share your public Punchpass pages:

  • Create a "Book Now" button at the top of your Facebook business page
  • Add the link to your Instagram profile
  • Add "Book Now", "View Our Pricing", “See Upcoming Workshops” etc.  buttons to your website
  • Include your links in your email newsletters and social media posts

Adding a Custom Message to Your Public Schedule

You can write whatever you want at the top of your Punchpass schedule - it’s a great way to communicate any updates, special offers, booking terms, new classes etc that you want your customers to be aware of before making a booking.

You can include images and links in this area and edit it as often as you like to keep the information fresh and relevant. It’s like an online bulletin board for your business!

We think that giving your customers as much relevant up-front information as possible is one of the best ways to keep your business running smoothly behind the scenes (which gives you and your staff more time to focus on other things!).

You Can Customize Your Online Pass Sales Page Too

If you're selling passes online, you’ll have a separate (but nicely integrated) Punchpass page for your pass sales.

You can add a different set of information to the top of this page. It’s a great place to spell out any payment policies, specify whether your prices include tax, promote any new passes you may have on offer and communicate anything else you’d like your customers to be aware of before making a purchase.

Filtered Links Let You Showcase Specific Offerings

If we’re going to be sending your students to your Punchpass pages then we want to make sure they look awesome and provide the perfect amount of information – not too much, not too little.

So in addition the main link to your Punchpass pages, you can use other unique Punchpass links to create filtered and targeted versions of your timetable. So you can add as many options as you like to your website so your customers (and potential customers) can easily arrive at the exact information that they’re looking for.

For example, we let you apply custom filters to your schedule & grab links that provide that filtered view. So you can display different versions of your timetable to different audiences. You can include these filtered links on your website, in your email newsletters and social media posts.

Want to break things up by location?  Or Instructor?  Your link can show the proper subset of classes that meet the criteria.

If you're offering a workshop, you can send folks directly to the proper signup spot. Or if you want to feature a particular pass or membership, you can send people right there.

Each Class, Workshop and Pass Has a Custom Description

So you can describe each of your offerings exactly as you like. You can include images, links... even a short video if you like!

More Ways Punchpass Software Can Reflect Your Business

And that’s just the beginning! You can also make further customizations to the appearance of your Punchpass pages including:

  • Designating different class colours which can be used to sort your offerings in a bunch of useful ways
  • Using a custom image when you share information to Facebook
  • Embedding your timetable and pricing right into your website pages so it looks like a custom setup just for you
  • Adding your own text to the automated email confirmations and receipts that Punchpass sends on your behalf
