Key benefits of using Paperbell

Paperbell is a scheduling, payment, contract signing, and client management tool, designed just for coaches. Your clients can schedule their appointments, sign contracts, access digital downloads, and pay (including payment plans, ongoing subscriptions, group coaching, and multi-session packages), in one online hub.

Paperbell takes care of the gruntwork, so that you can spend your time doing the important work that you were put here to do.

Paperbell is designed specifically for coaches and consultants who work online. Basically, it’s the perfect fit for you, if your business includes a large component of one-on-one or small-group client work.

Looking for the coaching software platform that has everything? Here are some of our features:

Scheduling Software
Paperbell replaces scheduling tools like Calendly or Acuity. allowing your coaching clients to self-schedule their appointments based on your ideal availability.

Payment / Checkout / Billing Software
Call it what you will, Paperbell gives you an easy way to sell your coaching packages online.

Contract / E-Signature Software
Paperbell automatically ensures that your coaching client engagements aren’t finalised until they’ve signed your contract. (So you can stop all of those “friendly reminders” about contract signing!)

Client Management Dashboard
Keep an organised, complete profile on every client in your system. Your coaching client dashboard shows you the client's complete purchase history, total spend, appointment history, survey answers, and much more.


Digital Downloads
You can use Paperbell to add digital downloads (such as PDFs) to any coaching package, or you can sell them as stand-alone products.


Client Portal
Paperbell is as simple and elegant for clients as it is for coaches! Your clients will automatically have their own custom portal where they can self-schedule appointments, view contracts, purchase more sessions and more.

Pros
This is the best coaching software. A colleague and fellow coach recommended it and I'm so pleased that I followed her suggestion.
I love how easy it is to set up packages and recurring appointments. The Stripe Integration was easy to set up, and I love that there is E-mail Marketing built in.
I love the ability to have everything in one spot, and the ability to send me customers there.
Cons
It's new software so there are occasional glitches and it doesn't always work very smoothly. Some of my clients have had trouble using it.
Any missing features are probably “in the works.
I was expecting to be able to invoice current clients rather than making them go to the website, set up an account, choose their package, and pay for it.

An excellent CRM with much-loved regular updates

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've loved using Paperbell, and it just continues to improve and get better. The team keeps adding features which I find super useful. I love how my client info, billing, appointments and services are all in one place. I've looked at other CRMs and they are way too complicated. Paperbell has simplified the concept and created something that meets all of my needs as a personal development coach.

Pros

I love the ease of use. I love the newest updates, that have added capabilities like tracking email sent, uploading and sharing documents, and easy client login. I love how easy it is to management my clients and my appointments, as well as my service offerings.

Cons

Although easy to use, sometimes it is a bit too simplified, and I am not sure where to go to find what I need. The Customer Service is excellent though and always quickly responds with an answer to my questions.

Vendor response

Thanks for sharing Carolyn, we appreciate it! Love that you find Paperbell easy to use yet too easy (simplified) at the same time. I understand how sometimes there needs to be more complicated steps for some coaches - but we hope the ease of use keeps you here into the future. Samantha, Team Paperbell

Truly a Godsend!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wonderful!

Pros

It captures about 90% of all my needs as the owner of a coaching practice, is super user friendly with great customer support, receptive to feedback and has a minimalist and beautiful layout. The functionality is fabulous!

Cons

There isn't a specific option to have courses. Being able to add media and links is great but I would like to offer courses in the same platform.

Vendor response

We love that you shared with us, Paula! Hoping we can get that last 10% of the way there. Will add your vote to courses! Thanks for the review! Samantha, Team Paperbell

Very concerned about data security

Reviewed a year ago

I enjoyed my free trial but I did not feel comfortable migrating my client data into the system when they did not seem to have security features in place for data encryption or could not answer other questions most SaaS companies are ready to answer.

Pros

I was very much hoping to use Paperbell because so many of their features are helpful for this line of work.

Cons

When I asked support about data security, I was first given phrases like "industry standard" and "continuous protections". When I asked for clarification, like end to end encryption or how I might access my schedule if there was a disruption of service, I was told "We're a super small team serving thousands of customers, which means that we can't answer specific security questions like these.All we can do is point you towards our privacy policy. If that doesn't contain the kind of information you need, we totally understand if you go with another solution."This leads me to believe they have not made plans around service interruptions or for data security because those are not difficult questions to answer if you have.

Vendor response

Hi Meredith, We take security and privacy very seriously and publish our policies at https://paperbell.com/privacy-policy/ and https://paperbell.com/terms-and-conditions/ We do have practices for both data security and service interruptions, it sounds like we had a miscommunication on this one. Thanks for taking the time to check out Paperbell and welcome you back any time! - Laura, Team Paperbell

Love, love, love this platform!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I'm a Life Coach and it's wonderful to have everything in one place. No more calendly plus docusign plus checkout. Everything's here!

Pros

I have used several similar platforms and this one is the best by far. SO EASY to use. Everything's in one place. Client's have to read & sign your Agreement before purchase. It's just an awesome platform.

Cons

The only thing I think that would make Paperbell even better is to offer a teaching platform (e.g. Teachable) that way clients only need one platform to access sessions PLUS courses.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your review Sandy, we appreciate it! Happy you found us and thank you for your feedback on courses. You can also upload course content to your packages. Did you know? Perhaps you can have everything in the same place! Samantha, Team Paperbell

Paperbell Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I feel that Paperbell is an excellent product.

Pros

I like that I can add my coaching agreement contract, manage both group and individual coaching packages, integrate my google calendars, zoom, and stripe all in one place.

Cons

There are just a couple of minor limitations I've discovered so far. One is that the recurring billing date cannot be changed. The other is that package cannot be edited once a client has purchased from that package.

Vendor response

Wonderful review Denise - delighted you chose us! We do have a few limitations for sure but we are always looking for ways to get around this. As we grow there will hopefully be a chance to change some of the limitations you mentioned. Samantha, Team Paperbell
