Vagaro Software Pricing and Reviews 2023

Vagaro Overview

Vagaro is a scheduling and management software built for the salon, spa, and fitness industries. Starting at $35/month + additional fees for features like credit card payments, text marketing, and online stores, Vagaro charges per “bookable calendar” rather than on a plan-based tier system. 

The scheduling software comes with two apps, one for clients and one for providers, that lets them book services and manage bookings respectively. Vagaro scheduling software also offers a custom branded app for $265/month. 

Vagaro Software Features

Vagaro features compared to MarketBox

Vagaro’s biggest feature is its online booking capabilities that let customers book via your website, social media pages, the Vagaro marketplace, and even from Apple Maps. It also has live stream capabilities ($15/month) which are targeted toward fitness businesses that let you offer virtual classes alongside your other business operations.

Other useful Vagaro features that come at additional costs include

Despite the easy-to-use booking software, many Vagaro reviews state it’s more suited for sole operators, and the scheduling capabilities fall down when multiple providers are involved. For wellness businesses with multiple contractors (and schedules), MarketBox’s advanced scheduling system makes it a better choice. 

The MarketBox software is infinitely scalable, supporting an unlimited number of accounts and schedules. The software's travel zone feature lets you control when and where your team operates and reduce travel time simultaneously. For businesses employing independent contractors, the booking request feature gives providers control over the jobs they take on while secondary matching ensures no request is missed. Advanced filtering on the booking flow lets customers self-book their local service provider, and for businesses operating over larger areas, configurable pricing lets you set different prices from a country level, all the way down to individual zip codes.

If you’re looking for software that can support businesses of all sizes, automate scheduling and bookings, reduce admin tasks, and help you grow your business, you won’t find a better solution than MarketBox

Rather than offering plans, Vagaro scheduling software charges per “bookable calendar.” Sole operators or businesses who want to handle scheduling manually could get away with the one calendar plan ($35/month), but anyone looking to automate scheduling and let providers be booked individually will need to pay accordingly.

However, it’s worth noting that things like credit card payments, text marketing, a check-in app, online stores, and customer forms are all additional add-ons, starting at $15/month (and 2.65% for card payments). 

MarketBox’s inclusive pricing plans have all the standard features you need to operate and scale your business, regardless of your plan, including online payments, customizable booking flows, travel zones, review forms, and more.

Vagaro scheduling software has mixed reviews across the major software review sites.
