Clients may now book massage buddies using four unique and simple methods. Each method has the same end result, you confirm a booking with a small deposit pending the total cost of the services you're interested in and the massage buddy is currently offering. The higher the total cost, the lower the deposit percentage required to book. Clients should rest easy knowing the massage buddy does not receive any payment until they meet their client so you are always secured when checking out and confirming a booking. You can view the percentage chart in your messages or our article on how to book
using the message system. This is a universal rule within all our services and will always be practiced by both massage therapist and client if they wish to continue being part of MassageBuddy. We work with an ever expanding list of clients daily and the only way we can deliver on the quality of our service is a powerful and streamlined checkout feature. This lets us and the massage buddies know you are serious about the booking and are ready to schedule. Please note, that all our buddies are verified 18+ years old and our service is only for clients 18 years old and over. Some if not most massage buddies would like to screen you before meeting for the first time and we have no control over each individual's screening practices. We are certain you will find we provide excellent customer support and will answer any questions you might have along the way. Whatever method you prefer/decide to book by, we'll be here to help whenever you need us.
To head directly to the massage buddy's checkout page click the "Book" button right below their profile photo or click "Pay" or "Payment" within your conversations. Consider the checkout page the massage buddy's store, you simply add the services you'd like to book and pay the deposit to confirm the booking. By adding more services, you will see the price and percentage required to book automatically lowers pending the total cost of the services. So the higher the total, the less you pay to make the deposit. Every deposit will send you a confirmation email with a receipt and creates a booking event in your conversation with the massage buddy for reference. Contact information such as your phone number and email address can also be sent directly with your deposit/booking on the checkout page but never before or in a conversation, this would result in a quick ban for violating one of our key terms. Messages can be used to ask about availability, session details, ,modalities, massage supplies, and anything related to your booking. Once you make a deposit, our review system will not reject sharing contact information for 72 hours in case you've made an error during checkout. No small talk is allowed within messages, massage buddies are patiently waiting to meet interesting new or trusted clients and would prefer the small talk be saved for the session.
Proposals are personalized services you create and can offer to the massage buddies directly through your conversations. Proposals are a great way to request a special session from the massage buddy. Things like location, modalities, massage supplies, music, price, and length can be modified to personalize your bookings. To send a proposal, click the "Proposal" tab and enter your preferred date, duration, price offer, service, destination, and all your specific booking details. Once you send the proposal, the massage buddy will decide if they approve it or reject it. If the buddy approves, you will receive a successful proposal event to confirm the booking with a deposit. Click the event and your preferred payment method to be taken to the checkout page to enter your payment information and complete the transaction. With the deposit, you will receive a confirmation email with a receipt and a booking event will appear in the conversation. If the buddy rejects your proposal, you will received a rejected proposal event with the reason why. Do try again and clearly communicate the new proposal within the conversation before sending it once more. Please only use proposals to send decent and professional session offers, the massage buddy will always reject your proposal if you attempt to reduce the price of their current rates or request any illegal services.

Invites allow clients to post their own personalizes ads for sessions and have massage buddies apply for the offers. You can easily find massage therapists that are able to meet your special needs for massage therapy or other holistic practices, massage supplies, modalities, music, aromatherapy, environment, and more. All invites are anonymous to everyone but the massage buddies browsing them. Clients will only see a locked photo and a hidden name, non-users have no access to the invites section at all. For ads to be extra successful, do use a recent photo of yourself as your profile photo or at the very least mention you have no issue with being screened by the buddy to put them at ease about verifying your identity. To post an invite, head to the create
page and enter the offer amount, start date, end date, duration, categories, and session details. Invites will be reviewed and posted within 24 hours or less so keep that in mind when planning a massage session in the future. Once you start receiving applicants, each applicant will create an invite event in your conversations. You can confirm an invite in the same fashion as proposals by making a deposit within the conversation with the applicants you favor. There are no limits to how many applicants you can book for your invites.
