Signing up with Party Center Software is just the beginning of a long-lasting relationship. If you need help for anything in your decision-making process, we urge you to call or email our team. In the meantime, here are some questions we are frequently asked with some helpful answers.
Our software is set up with all your available times, products you sell, and other customized settings. All you do is put a link on to your website. Request a demo and we'll show you what the process of booking and managing parties will look like.
Our top-performing customers do the following:

You can offer multiple party packages for the same window of time. When one of them gets booked, the other party packages become unavailable for that specific window.
Glad you asked. One of the main reasons is to manage an increase in demand since busy moms expect more from websites. We wrote a blog post on the 5 Amazing Benefits of Automating Your Party Bookings.
The fact of the matter is that your audience would occasionally like to be able to book their party during your off-hours. Wouldn't it be nice to make money while nobody is in the office?
No, we do not. All the money that you make from party bookings using our system is yours.
There are no hidden fees with Party Center Software. It's just a simple monthly subscription (can also be paid quarterly or monthly).
Roughly four hours are needed in order to set the software up and learn how to use it. You can spread the hours out however you like. Most people try to do one-hour increments. But you can do whatever works best with your schedule.
It depends on which bells and whistles you want to include with your package. Our base subscription costs about as much as one birthday party...It starts at $185/month.
In many cases, you can import your data into our system. Otherwise, we'll be able to help you set up the software so it works for you with our PCS Launch Program.
For the self-serve option, it depends on your availability to gather and set up the software, which can take up to 4 weeks. If you go with the full-service (PCS Launch) option, you get a dedicated set-up specialist who will do the work for you. This can drastically reduce the set-up time.

Do you offer an integrated payment solution?
Yes! Party Center Pay is our payment solution for all US-based customers. We offer a meet or beat guarantee, world-class hardware, and a single point of contact for payment support. We also offer other international integration options.
We offer digital waivers that your audience can sign from their phones or from the comfort of their own homes.
You can also set up the waiver screen on a computer/tablet at your facility so that people can sign the digital waiver to expedite the check-in process.
All signed waivers will be stored in your customer database.
The online store that we offer makes it possible to sell 'summer passes' or tickets to Halloween or holiday parties.
You can also sell merchandise but you will not be able to manage inventory on the store.
It is not an e-commerce store that will allow customers to make a purchase and then to receive that item in the mail.
Customers will simply be able to choose and pay for what they want. Then, when they come into the facility, you can complete the order.
We integrate with Embed for card systems. You can learn more about that here. We also integrate with Hownd for direct marketing.
Essentially, you'll need to have a computer for running the software, a chip reader for taking credit card payments in-store, a receipt printer for printing receipts, and the standard internet accouterment.
If you're planning to utilize our POS (most customers do) then you'll need a tablet for running the POS.
