One of the biggest aspects of growing our business is switching to MoonClerk, which allowed us to accept payments and give our clients the ability to easily check out online.

We use MoonClerk to accept payments for pretty much everything – from classes, registration, recital fees, summer intensives, and more.

Before MoonClerk, did you use another payment system?

Previously, we only had the ability for people to pay in person in our studio by credit card, cash or check. We didn’t have a recurring payment system or a way to for people to pay online.

We use Squarespace as our CMS/website builder and MoonClerk was compatible with both Squarespace and the payment processor, Stripe.
