About Fresha

Fresha, formerly Shedul, is an online booking and scheduling solution for salons, spas, personal trainers, and other beauty and wellness businesses. Fresha is accessible from any device, anywhere, anytime through the internet. With Shedul's online booking tool businesses can allow clients to effortlessly book appointments directly though the business website or Facebook page, and Fresha can automatically send personalized appointment messages.

With tools such as calendar management, automated SMS reminders, online booking through the business website, Facebook, or widgets, customer management, an activity dashboard, POS, sales reporting, and more, Fresha aims to simplify the booking and scheduling of appointments. Employees and management can stay on top of day-to-day tasks using the activity dashboard which provides an at-a-glance view of the days upcoming appointments, new actions, and notifications.

    A great experience so far...

    Reviewed on 2021/03/15


    We switched from Booker, who we had been with for 8 years, and so far the experience has been great. I love that Fresha works great on all devices and that our customers can do pretty much anything from their phones, including make and amend bookings, complete consultation forms, add payment cards, see their history etc. It's easy for our customers to book and check availability with their favourite therapist in a few clicks. The integrated payment system is good value and Fresha provide everything .. so no separate card processing, payment gateways or machine rental charges. The UK support is helpful and friendly and there are lots of articles, videos etc to help you get set up.


    New features are being added all the time (you can see what's planned on their community pages). Features not currently available but in an ideal world I would like are, the migration of appointment history and existing gift vouchers, discount codes that can be promoted to clients and entered online and more options for sending out emails along the lines of MailChimp. Some of these are planned so it's still a great choice.

    BADASS company and customer service!!

    Reviewed on 2021/03/12


    We all have to like customer service! They are so fast at we replying normally within a day if not hours! I have NEVER dealt with anyone rude (I go to them more than I should, I'll just say I'm total computer dumb), and they legit send me step by step instructions with little picture of icons that help me with every step of whatever I need that go around! I LOVE EVERYTHING about this software and I LOVE watching software grow with what the CUSTOMERS are wanting! THAT IS RIGHT THEY LISTEN TO US CUSTOMERS WITH VOTES!!! Just go head and get it, you won't be disappointed, and you can thank me later! SERIOUSLY go ahead.....your seconds away from so much stress taken off of you by software you can actually understand, let alone your clients will LOVE the conformation text, a day before text, and I have mine set to 2 hour before reminder! They LOVE IT TOO!


    Absolutely NO CONS! They are working on the software ALL the time! LEGIT, LOOOOOOVE THIS SOFTWARE AND THE BADASS COUSTOMER SERVISE! You're already missing out if you haven't already clicked to sign up!

    Ease of use....some functions in analytics


    Their new Fresha pricing system is hidden in there description words of the product. Be very careful of what you get yourself in for.
    Their payment system back to you, the user, with Fresha plus is not described till you start using it. They have 4 processing times done over 24 hrs meaning payments took up to 7 days to be paid out. They describe how much you should be getting daily but I found i would only receive 20% of what I should have been getting. You will also be manipulated and pressured and lied to to get you off the free system and onto the payment system.
    Our business was in the number one position in Australia of all users for 5 stars for Fresha.
    I definitely don't recommend them. We have left for a much better online system.

    I made the switch from Mind Body, and within days, my whole team absolutely fell in love with it. Afterwards, my clients have now done the same


    The interface for both clients and operators, it's smooth and never glitchy, it's EASY as can be, the price is unbeatable, and the customer service is excellent.... Like a Tesla, this is software that gets BETTER overtime. Can't wait to see where it goes!


    Still waiting to find one. I suppose the marketing items could be expanded, but they keep us posted about that which is very nice.
