The Clinic agrees that the Clients rely on the accuracy of a Clinic’s schedule, and if the schedule is frequently found to be out of date and the Clinic cancels Aesthetic Procedures, this shall be considered a material breach of these Clinic Terms.
4. Fees, Commission and Payment
4.1 Clients shall authorise the Fee for each Aesthetic Procedure when the Aesthetic Procedure is booked and we will take payment upon the Aesthetic Procedure being conducted. The practitioner takes responsibility for pressing the 'take payment' button upon completion of the treatment.
Payment is made through our payment service provider, Stripe. Clinics acknowledge that Glowday acts as a Clinic’s agent to receive the Fee for an Aesthetic Procedure booked through the Site.
4.2 Clinic fees will be deposited into the Clinic’s Stripe account once a treatment has taken place and can draw down payment from this account, minus the commission element (and VAT) into their business bank account. We shall notify the Clinic by email of any changes to the calculation of the Commission from time to time.
4.3 If the Client books an Aesthetic Procedure on the Site, the Clinic shall not attempt to circumvent payment of the Fee and Commission to Glowday. In particular, the Clinic shall not:
- cancel the Glowday Booking and remove the Client from the Glowday Diary.
- encourage the Client to cancel the Aesthetic Procedure and re-book directly with the Clinic.
- request direct payment for the Aesthetic Procedure from the Client.
- conduct a consultation, which converts into an Aesthetic Procedure but payment is then taken direct and not through Glowday.
- fail to complete the Glowday treatment card for a Glowday Booking.
4.4 The Clinic shall complete the Glowday Treatment Card within 24 hours of the end of the Glowday Appointment date and time, and where a treatment has occurred, transact through the Glowday platform.
A breach of Conditions 4.3 and 4.4 shall constitute a material breach of these Terms, and Glowday shall be entitled to suspend or terminate a Clinic’s account and invoice the Clinic £100 for any Glowday Booking, to be paid within 30 days of receipt of the invoice, to cover the cost of the Glowday Booking, administration fees and any damages in respect of any loss suffered as a result. Failure to pay within 30 days of receipt of the invoice will result in debt recovery measures which may impact on a Clinic’s credit rating.
4.5 Glowday shall, on reasonable notice to the Clinic, be entitled to audit all payment records relating to a Client and the Clinic to ensure compliance with Condition 4.3 and Condition 4.4 and payment of all Commissions due.
If following the audit, there is found to be a breach of Condition 4.3 and/or Condition 4.4, the Clinic shall promptly pay to Glowday all sums due, together with the costs of the audit and enforcement of this Condition 4.3 and 4.4.
4.6 The Clinic agrees that it is not an employee of Glowday. The Clinic is responsible for making appropriate tax due in respect of the Fee, and the Clinic shall indemnify Glowday (on a full indemnity basis) in respect of any claims or demands which may be made by the relevant authorities against Glowday in respect of the payment of any such taxes, including any interest or penalties and any costs or expenses we incur in relation to the claim.
4.7 The Clinic may convert a Consultation booking to an Aesthetic Procedure during the Consultation.
- Consultation bookings have a 0% commission charge.
- If a Consultation converts into an Aesthetic Procedure, a commission of 30% (+ VAT) for a Glowday Clients first Aesthetic Procedure(s) and 2% (+ VAT) for a repeat Aesthetic Procedure will apply based on the advertised fee.
- No commission is charged any appointment added to the Practitioner's Glowday Diary (walk-in, phone or DM/social).
- No commission is charged on direct bookings made via the Practitioner's unique 0% link, provided to each Practitioner in their Glowday dashboard.
4.8 Clinics and Practitioners must provide price parity or a price discount between a direct clinic booking and a booking made through Glowday.
- Treatment prices listed on a Practitioner’s Glowday Profile must be equal to, or less than, those available when a Client books direct with a Practitioner/Clinic.
- Clinics may discount treatments, but Glowday will still retain the commission value calculated on the price of the treatment at the point of booking. The Glowday platform will not allow the discount to drop beneath the value required to collect the original commission value.
4.9 On occasion a Clients card used for making a payment for an Aesthetic Procedure may fail, despite the card having been authorised for payment at the point of booking.
The reason for the card failure will be returned by the card-issuing bank and presented in the dashboard. When a card failure occurs, you should use a POS device or take a cash payment.
Glowday, do not take any responsibility for failed payments and is not responsible for reimbursing Clinics where a failed payment occurs and they haven't recovered the payment using a POS machine or cash. Failed payments will not result in a Client review as the Aesthetic Procedure could not be verified.

In particular, Clinics shall take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard such personal data from unauthorised access, loss and disclosure.
