Subject: Feature Request: Integration of Low-Code Booking and Tip Acceptance at Checkout for Retail Service Industries

Dear Stripe Development Team,

We are writing to propose a new feature that would greatly benefit Stripe users in the retail service industries, particularly salons, barbers, and beauty services. Our goal is to simplify their business operations by integrating booking, payments, and management functionalities seamlessly.

Currently, we have not identified a booking application that integrates directly with Stripe. Other payment providers have already implemented similar solutions, offering simple booking architectures per account combined with the ability to accept tips at the point of sale. This integration has proven invaluable for businesses in these sectors.

We are in the process of onboarding several clients within these categories and have received consistent feedback regarding the need for a streamlined, low-code booking solution that also facilitates tip acceptance at checkout. Integrating these features into Stripe would not only enhance the user experience but also provide a competitive edge for Stripe in the retail service market.

Here are the key benefits and technical advantages of this integration:

1.	Simplified Operations: A unified platform for booking, payments, and management reduces the complexity of managing multiple systems, thereby saving time and reducing the risk of errors.
2.	Increased Revenue: The ability to accept tips directly at checkout encourages higher tipping rates, leading to increased revenue for service providers.
3.	User-Friendly Interface: A low-code solution makes it easier for businesses to set up and manage their booking systems without requiring extensive technical knowledge.
4.	Market Competitiveness: Offering an integrated booking and tipping feature would position Stripe as a more attractive option compared to other payment providers that already offer similar functionalities.

We believe that developing and implementing this feature would not only meet the needs of our clients but also align with Stripe’s commitment to providing innovative and user-centric solutions. We are eager to collaborate and provide any additional insights or technical support required to make this integration a reality.

Thank you for considering our request. We look forward to the possibility of working together to enhance Stripe’s offerings for the retail service industry.

Best regards,
Meister
