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agrees that the Clients rely on the accuracy of a Clinic’s schedule, and if the schedule is frequently found to be out of date and the Clinic cancels Aesthetic Procedures, this shall be considered a material breach of these Clinic Terms.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.
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.
- Conduct a consultation and at a later date, not add the patient to the Glowday platform for their subsequent treatment.
4.4 The Clinic must complete the Glowday Treatment Card immediately after the treatment has been conducted and whilst the patient is on the premises. The Clinic takes responsibility for pressing the 'take payment' button upon completion of the treatment card. Clinics must not delay in completing treatment cards and taking payment. For the avoidance of doubt, where card payments fail and the Clinic hasn't taken the necessary steps to take payment through an alternative means, Glowday takes no responsibility and isn't liable for the cost of the treatment or associated product sales.
A breach of Conditions 4.3 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 payment of all Commissions due.
If following the audit, there is found to be a breach of Condition 4.3 the Clinic shall promptly pay to Glowday all sums due, together with the costs of the audit and enforcement of this condition.
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).
- No commission is charged for any appointment added to the Practitioner's Glowday Diary (walk-in, phone, DM/social or an existing patient).
- 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, take a cash payment or bank transfer.
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, cash or bank transfer. Failed payments will not result in a Client review as the Aesthetic Procedure could not be verified.

You will not represent any outcome in respect of an Aesthetic Procedure that is false or misleading. You shall also provide adequate aftercare and guidance and promptly deal with any after-sales inquiries or complaints received from Clients.
5.2 The Clinic is responsible for the Aesthetic Procedures provided to Clients and the contract for those Aesthetic Procedures is between the Clinic and the Client. We are in no way liable to Clients for the Aesthetic Procedures they receive from you.
5.3 Clinics shall only process Client Personal Data in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation. 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.
