    Hello,

    I have someone who booked my 20 minute fire show but would like to change to the 10 minute fire show. How do i go about changing it please?

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi, Nicola,

      Are you able to provide the details of your supplier name on Poptop, so that I can send it to the support team so they are able to help you in this query?

    DEPOSIT PAID BY CLIENT 31/5

    NOTHING PAID TO ME YET

    PLEASE ADVISE

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi, Nick.

      The deposit takes 14 days to process, so it should be with you by today or tomorrow. We’re aware that this is a lengthy process and we are striving to improve this.

      Thanks for your patience.

    Hello,

    my site has 2 base prices, one from £16 which is correct and then, further down, one for £30 pp which I don’t want but I cannot see how to get rid of it.

    Thank you.

    Hi,
    My latest booking shows that £272 will be received before the event, however a deposit of £69 has been paid by the client and the total is £376. I can’t work out the maths on this and how I would be receiving £272 ahead of the event when I believe suppliers sort the payments direct with the client after the deposit has been paid to PopTop? Please explain and clarify how much I should be invoicing the client for in remaining fees. I believe it to be £307? (£376 – £69)

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi, Lucy.

      So sorry for the delayed response.

      The total price of the booking includes our client service fee charge which clients pay at the same time as the deposit. Your quote breaks down as follows:
      Service base price 1 x 1 hour set = £300
      Travel expense = £41
      Client service fee = £34.20
      Total price = £376
      £376 minus the deposit paid (£69) and client service fee charge (£34.20) = £272.80

      Thanks,

      Dom

    I have a booking of sorts, someone has booked but they have not paid the deposit I have messaged the client several times, and poptop emailed me in the week to ask about this booking and said they would find out what is going on. It’s Sunday no one is at the office and I don’t know whether to go to the booking or not. please advise.

      Hi, Elizmi.

      Sorry for the wait. I have sent your details and information to our support team. They should be in contact with you soon to help you, if not I will be able to chase it up for you.

    How do I change my listing description? Not the body content – but the actual heading (which I’m pretty sure I dod not write)

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi, Debbie.

      All you need to do is click on services in your dashboard and click on the listing you want to change.

      Thanks,

      Dom

      1. Debbie Rutherford Avatar

        that only allows me to change the body content, not the title…

      2. Debbie Rutherford Avatar

        So how do I change the title?

        1. Dom Bell Avatar

          Hi, Debbie.

          When you click on the listing you want to change from your services dashboard. It should take you to the overview dashboard where you can change your title. If you are still unable to do this we can do this for you.

          Many thanks,

          Dom

  10. Cat Avatar

    Hi the reason I’m not updating to become visible again is that I often have people book me on the other side of the country – either really far from where I live, or I am already at a booking far away and they are booking close to my home. So although I am available for the time slot I can’t physically get there in time. Is there any way the process can be halted at the booking request stage for me to OK it 1st please, as then I would rejoin. Otherwise I’ll continue no longer using poptop as its too stressful/ too much hassle.
    Yours, Cat.

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi, Cat – I advise to reduce your travel radius on your profile. If you reduce your travel to a local radius of say 10 miles then clients will only be able to book you locally. This will solve the issues of getting booked across the uk. 🙂

      Thanks,

      Dom.

  12. Lucy Barlow Avatar

    Hi there,
    I’d like to know how to put in a ‘delay and approve’ system – I don’t want bookings being made instantly without a chance to talk to a prospective client and confirm that the service is right for what they need (or indeed that it’s a viable client depending on travel distances and other events in my calendar) – if when people book instantly – I invariably end up having to cancel or alter the bookings – which cause grief for me (and penalties for me on the PopTop site, I believe) and for the client.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.
    This should not be hard to do – AirBnb literally have an on/off switch for ‘Instant Booking’

    Hi,
    We’re new on Poptop, and no matter what we try and do, our service isn’t appearing in the search. Can you have a look and tell us why this is? I’ve only added one service so far.

    Also, how do I add extras, of the same service? For example, we do bell tents, and can supply more than 1. The person who phoned me said to add it as an extra in the listing, so someone can take an extra tent. But that doesn’t allow for the price variations on the number of days that they hire for. How can I do this?

    Thanks

    Our listing is hidden and we are constantly being asked to update our calendar. Our calendar is up to date.

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi Theo,

      To ensure your listing isn’t hidden, in your calendar you need to have at least 10 days where you aren’t available for bookings. These could be holidays, birthdays, special occasions or days you just don’t want to be booked for an event.

      Once you have your calendar updated with these 10 dates your listing will become visible again.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  16. Glenn Ward Avatar

    Hi Poptop – could you just clarify how payment works pls, for a recent job of mine.
    The customer paid the deposit, but not the remainder after the job.
    Do they then need to pay this balance via poptop as per the deposit or do I ask for it directly via a bank transfer. ?
    Also. is Poptops commission take automatically or do I need to pay that separately myself?
    Thanks for your help here
    Regards,
    Glenn Ward

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi Glenn,

      The remaining payment is directly between the client and the supplier. Poptop’s fee is deducted from the deposit. If you have any more questions, please get in touch.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  17. isabel ainsworth Avatar

    Hi, I’ve not received the full amount for the booking fee.
    According to the billing the customer should has paid £26.80, however I have only received £21.84.
    Also I have only received the booking fee and not the deposit, do I need to invoice the client for the deposit?
    Can you also confirm what the Client service fee is, is this something I will receive once the event has happened?
    And there seems to be a disparity in the total price of the booking compared to what I will be receiving before the event as with the bookings I’m not receiving the full deposit, only the booking fee, the travel expenses are not being included in the amount received before the event.
    I know I need to invoice the client once the booking fee has been paid so could you please confirm what I need to invoice and can you please pay the full amount of the booking fee for the event stated above.

      Hi Isabel,

  18. Michelle Avatar

    Hi there, I just wanted to confirm your fees. Am I right in thinking your charge a service fee directly to our clients and you also then take a percentage out of our quoted fees? So for a booking I recently took you have charged £14 to the client directly and another £16.80 to me, so a total of just over £30 goes to Poptop for a booking that I will end up getting £123 for? Seems like a very high Poptop fee (about 25%)..?

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi Michelle,
      Thanks for your comment. That’s correct, clients pay a service fee when making a booking with Poptop. This service fee contributes to a number of things, mainly the comprehensive Booking Protection we offer to our clients in providing a safe and secure bookings on our platform, as well as other business costs such as ongoing customer support and paid marketing to acquire more online traffic to our website and ultimately get you more clients.
      You also pay a booking fee every time you get a booking. Our website is free to use in helping you advertise and market your business to a huge amount of clients – you only pay when you actually get booked.
      I hope I’ve addressed your concerns regarding our fees however if you would like to discuss this further please email us on hello@poptop.uk.com

      Thanks,

      Hi Chris,

      When the client has paid their deposit, a chat box on the inbox dashboard should appear with the client details, if not you will also receive an email with their details in as well. Hope this helps.

    Hi there. We’ve driven to Gloucestershire from London and the client has called to cancel as no one has turned up to their event. We are 10 mins from the venue.

    They said the deposit paid should “cover our petrol”, but obviously we would also expect to be compensated for our time and the fact that we have missed out on our bookings tonight (which is a Sat in peak-summer).

    Obviously this is a very stressful situation, but we haven’t been able to get through to anyone at PopTop for any advice/support, despite google offering a ‘24 hour’ number. We would appreciate your help on this please.

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi Rami,

      I understand that was a very stressful situation. I have sent the details you provided so far to our support team, if you can provide any more then please send them. However, we don’t have a 24 hr number and we don’t have anywhere that promotes that on Google, so I am sorry that you thought you’d be able to get in contact with our support team because of that. If you have any more information you can send it to support@poptop.uk.com.

      Hi Isabelle,

      I am sorry to hear about this experience you’ve had with us. I’ve sent your details to our support team to help you sort out this issue. In the case of updating your calendar, we ask suppliers to have at least 10 unavailable dates in their calendar where they can’t be booked so that bookings aren’t regularly cancelled.

  29. Michael Avatar

    Hello,

    I am continuosly getting emails telling me my calendar needs updating and now I’m being told I will be a hidded supplier if I don’t update it however:

    1) My calendar is aligned to my google calendar and is set to auto-update
    2) According to calendar sync, my calendar was last updated today at 9:56am
    3) My calendar is pretty detailed and has way more than 10 bookings in it

    What I have noticed is I check July and there’s loads in there but for August, even though there’s lots of bookings throughout the month, the August bookings are not populating across to PopTop. To add, I have bookings in place until the end of the year in my google calendar and none are showing in the Poptop calendar.

    I am aware there is a limit to the number of bookings that can be added through sync, but this shouldn’t be an issue here because most of July is in the past, so when it’s syncing, it should sync from today onwards, and not sync past events.

    Could someone please check why my bookings for August are not coming through when syncing?

    Many thanks,

    Michael.

    how do I prevent a booking from being AUTOMATICALLY processed and the deposit taken, before I accept? I want to confirm some important details with the client before I accept their booking, but I cannot see a way to do that without ‘rejecting’ the booking, and being penalised?

    1. Dom Bell Avatar

      Hi Bobby,
      Hope your keeping well.

      Poptop works differently that any other platform on the market. We operate using live pricing & availability. This provides clients with ease when planning an event and allows suppliers to save time when submitting quotes. We advise making use of our messaging function which allows suppliers to write a message directly to the client to ask for more details about their event. This will go directly to the client’s emails and they can respond which will open up a conversation. We also advise you to keep your calendar up to date at all times so you only receive bookings when you have availability.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  5. Hello,

    my site has 2 base prices, one from £16 which is correct and then, further down, one for £30 pp which I don’t want but I cannot see how to get rid of it.

    Thank you.

    • Hi, Nick.

      I’ve sent the details you gave me to our support team and they will be able to help you in this situation. They will also contact you soon to explain as well.

      Thanks,

      Dom.

  6. Hi,
    My latest booking shows that £272 will be received before the event, however a deposit of £69 has been paid by the client and the total is £376. I can’t work out the maths on this and how I would be receiving £272 ahead of the event when I believe suppliers sort the payments direct with the client after the deposit has been paid to PopTop? Please explain and clarify how much I should be invoicing the client for in remaining fees. I believe it to be £307? (£376 – £69)

    • Hi, Lucy.

      So sorry for the delayed response.

      The total price of the booking includes our client service fee charge which clients pay at the same time as the deposit. Your quote breaks down as follows:
      Service base price 1 x 1 hour set = £300
      Travel expense = £41
      Client service fee = £34.20
      Total price = £376
      £376 minus the deposit paid (£69) and client service fee charge (£34.20) = £272.80

      Thanks,

      Dom

  7. I have a booking of sorts, someone has booked but they have not paid the deposit I have messaged the client several times, and poptop emailed me in the week to ask about this booking and said they would find out what is going on. It’s Sunday no one is at the office and I don’t know whether to go to the booking or not. please advise.

    • Hi, Elizmi.

      Sorry for the wait. I have sent your details and information to our support team. They should be in contact with you soon to help you, if not I will be able to chase it up for you.

      Thanks,

      Dom

    • Hi, Elizmi.

      I can confirm that the booking was confirmed. Any more questions please get in touch.

      Thanks,

  8. Please delete my listing for Flux Ensemble.

  9. How do I change my listing description? Not the body content – but the actual heading (which I’m pretty sure I dod not write)

  10. Hi the reason I’m not updating to become visible again is that I often have people book me on the other side of the country – either really far from where I live, or I am already at a booking far away and they are booking close to my home. So although I am available for the time slot I can’t physically get there in time. Is there any way the process can be halted at the booking request stage for me to OK it 1st please, as then I would rejoin. Otherwise I’ll continue no longer using poptop as its too stressful/ too much hassle.
    Yours, Cat.

    • Hi, Cat – I advise to reduce your travel radius on your profile. If you reduce your travel to a local radius of say 10 miles then clients will only be able to book you locally. This will solve the issues of getting booked across the uk. 🙂

      Thanks,

      Dom.

  11. Anthony okoroafor

    can you explain why my travel fees are so low?

  12. Hi there,
    I’d like to know how to put in a ‘delay and approve’ system – I don’t want bookings being made instantly without a chance to talk to a prospective client and confirm that the service is right for what they need (or indeed that it’s a viable client depending on travel distances and other events in my calendar) – if when people book instantly – I invariably end up having to cancel or alter the bookings – which cause grief for me (and penalties for me on the PopTop site, I believe) and for the client.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.
    This should not be hard to do – AirBnb literally have an on/off switch for ‘Instant Booking’

    • Hi, Lucy.

      I’ve brought up your issue with our team and I’ll hopefully be able to get back to you soon with a possible solution.

      Thanks,

  13. I have had zero success with Poptop since I signed up again. Please take a look at my page/listings asap thank you

    • Hi Kyle,

      A member from our support team will look over your listings for you and hopefully be in contact soon.

      Thanks,

  14. Hi,
    We’re new on Poptop, and no matter what we try and do, our service isn’t appearing in the search. Can you have a look and tell us why this is? I’ve only added one service so far.

    Also, how do I add extras, of the same service? For example, we do bell tents, and can supply more than 1. The person who phoned me said to add it as an extra in the listing, so someone can take an extra tent. But that doesn’t allow for the price variations on the number of days that they hire for. How can I do this?

    Thanks

    • Hi Drew,

      I’ve sent your information to a member from our support team and they should be in contact soon.

      Thanks,

  15. Our listing is hidden and we are constantly being asked to update our calendar. Our calendar is up to date.

    • Hi Theo,

      To ensure your listing isn’t hidden, in your calendar you need to have at least 10 days where you aren’t available for bookings. These could be holidays, birthdays, special occasions or days you just don’t want to be booked for an event.

      Once you have your calendar updated with these 10 dates your listing will become visible again.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  16. Hi Poptop – could you just clarify how payment works pls, for a recent job of mine.
    The customer paid the deposit, but not the remainder after the job.
    Do they then need to pay this balance via poptop as per the deposit or do I ask for it directly via a bank transfer. ?
    Also. is Poptops commission take automatically or do I need to pay that separately myself?
    Thanks for your help here
    Regards,
    Glenn Ward

    • Hi Glenn,

      The remaining payment is directly between the client and the supplier. Poptop’s fee is deducted from the deposit. If you have any more questions, please get in touch.

      Thanks,

      Dom

    Hi, I’ve not received the full amount for the booking fee.
    According to the billing the customer should has paid £26.80, however I have only received £21.84.
    Also I have only received the booking fee and not the deposit, do I need to invoice the client for the deposit?
    Can you also confirm what the Client service fee is, is this something I will receive once the event has happened?
    And there seems to be a disparity in the total price of the booking compared to what I will be receiving before the event as with the bookings I’m not receiving the full deposit, only the booking fee, the travel expenses are not being included in the amount received before the event.
    I know I need to invoice the client once the booking fee has been paid so could you please confirm what I need to invoice and can you please pay the full amount of the booking fee for the event stated above.

  18. Hi there, I just wanted to confirm your fees. Am I right in thinking your charge a service fee directly to our clients and you also then take a percentage out of our quoted fees? So for a booking I recently took you have charged £14 to the client directly and another £16.80 to me, so a total of just over £30 goes to Poptop for a booking that I will end up getting £123 for? Seems like a very high Poptop fee (about 25%)..?

    • Hi Michelle,
      Thanks for your comment. That’s correct, clients pay a service fee when making a booking with Poptop. This service fee contributes to a number of things, mainly the comprehensive Booking Protection we offer to our clients in providing a safe and secure bookings on our platform, as well as other business costs such as ongoing customer support and paid marketing to acquire more online traffic to our website and ultimately get you more clients.
      You also pay a booking fee every time you get a booking. Our website is free to use in helping you advertise and market your business to a huge amount of clients – you only pay when you actually get booked.
      I hope I’ve addressed your concerns regarding our fees however if you would like to discuss this further please email us on hello@poptop.uk.com

      Thanks,

      Dom

  20. Hi I need to cancel a confirmed booking due to family reasons. I have tried to cancel via the website but it is still showing in the diary. Can this booking be cancelled so the client can find another supplier. The clients name is Pauline Mcintyre and the booking is for 30/7/22

    I look forward to hearing from you

    • Hi Roy,

      One of our support team members will be in contact with you this morning to help sort out this issue.

  21. Hello
    Client paid deposit via website.
    Rest client should pay directly to me or avia poptop to ?
    Best regards

  22. Why is it that we cant have the customers phone number even when they have confirmed and Paid , my last job could not find the address needed to get in touch with customer for directions . When i sent the customer an email message through your system asking for phone number it came back saying Phone Numbers not allowed ?

    • Hi Chris,

      When the client has paid their deposit, a chat box on the inbox dashboard should appear with the client details, if not you will also receive an email with their details in as well. Hope this helps.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  23. Hello, I did not receive the payment from you. Could you check my account please.

    • Hi Victor,

      I’ve sent your details to our client support team, they’ll be in contact if there is any issues regarding your payment.

      Thanks Dom

  24. I wish to cancel / delete my membership. I am ceasing the business. Thanks

  25. Hi there. We’ve driven to Gloucestershire from London and the client has called to cancel as no one has turned up to their event. We are 10 mins from the venue.

    They said the deposit paid should “cover our petrol”, but obviously we would also expect to be compensated for our time and the fact that we have missed out on our bookings tonight (which is a Sat in peak-summer).

    Obviously this is a very stressful situation, but we haven’t been able to get through to anyone at PopTop for any advice/support, despite google offering a ‘24 hour’ number. We would appreciate your help on this please.

    • Hi Rami,

      I understand that was a very stressful situation. I have sent the details you provided so far to our support team, if you can provide any more then please send them. However, we don’t have a 24 hr number and we don’t have anywhere that promotes that on Google, so I am sorry that you thought you’d be able to get in contact with our support team because of that. If you have any more information you can send it to support@poptop.uk.com.

      Many thanks,

      Dom

  26. I would like to delete my account. I never had even 1 inquiry and now I keep being asked to update my calendar, which I have done, many times over. Yes there are more than 10 days that I’m not available etc. I’m fed up with these constant emails about the calendar and also, I paid £56 or something pounds for what ? For absolutely nothing. Please advise me on how to delete my account ASAP.

    • Hi Isabelle,

      I am sorry to hear about this experience you’ve had with us. I’ve sent your details to our support team to help you sort out this issue. In the case of updating your calendar, we ask suppliers to have at least 10 unavailable dates in their calendar where they can’t be booked so that bookings aren’t regularly cancelled.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  27. Hi I recently spoke to Alison about creating a profile and sent all the pictures videos etc that was needed .I haven’t had a reply and I’m wondering if she is still working here. Could someone please get in touch to clarify the situation so we can get going regards Garry Johnson-Crabtree

  28. Hello, I wish to cancel my supplier membership for anthony@aga-marketing.co.uk but can’t see how to do this to prevent further enquiries and bookings, or can you do this for me please?
    I have enough business for my needs from recommendations and my website.

  29. Hello,

    I am continuosly getting emails telling me my calendar needs updating and now I’m being told I will be a hidded supplier if I don’t update it however:

    1) My calendar is aligned to my google calendar and is set to auto-update
    2) According to calendar sync, my calendar was last updated today at 9:56am
    3) My calendar is pretty detailed and has way more than 10 bookings in it

    What I have noticed is I check July and there’s loads in there but for August, even though there’s lots of bookings throughout the month, the August bookings are not populating across to PopTop. To add, I have bookings in place until the end of the year in my google calendar and none are showing in the Poptop calendar.

    I am aware there is a limit to the number of bookings that can be added through sync, but this shouldn’t be an issue here because most of July is in the past, so when it’s syncing, it should sync from today onwards, and not sync past events.

    Could someone please check why my bookings for August are not coming through when syncing?

    Many thanks,

    Michael.

    • Hi Michael,

      I’ve sent your details along to our support team. They will check if there is an issue with your calendar and they should be able to rectify the issue if there is one.

  30. Why do I keep getting emails threatening to make me a hidden supplier if I don’t update my calender. It’s ridiculous my calender is already up to date. I been told I need to blank out 10 more dates or get hidden, what would you like me to do make up bookings for you. I’m coming to the point of just deleting my account.

    • Hi Jason,

      I’ve sent your information to our support team to see if there is an issue regarding your calendar. Hopefully, we will be able to rectify the situation if there is one.

      Thanks,

  33. Hi

    I am new to Poptop and have created my profile etc but am stuck waiting for a text message to verify my telephone number. I have double checked I have given the correct number but do not seem to be receiving the text messages to do this. I cannot begin to post a listing until I get over this hurdle.

  36. Hi there,

    I am awaiting payment for a completed job from last week.

    I am also finding it unclear on how to track down details of any payment, the deposit, or remainder that was (according to the website) paid before event started. However, it has not reached my account.

    Any assistance you can provide in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  37. Hiya!

    I wanted to ask how payment works. Do I invoice the client directly for the remainder of the fee?

    Kind regards

  38. I received a message the other day reminding me to update the details of my public liability insurance on Poptop. I cannot find the page to upload that.

    Please can you point me in the right direction?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Phil,

      You can do this by going into edit the details of your listing and ticking the boxes that say you have public liability.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  39. Is there a page on my profile where I can add to/update my repertoire list? Sure I’ve done it before, but today it’s escaping me!

  40. how do I prevent a booking from being AUTOMATICALLY processed and the deposit taken, before I accept? I want to confirm some important details with the client before I accept their booking, but I cannot see a way to do that without ‘rejecting’ the booking, and being penalised?

    • Hi Bobby,
      Hope your keeping well.

      Poptop works differently that any other platform on the market. We operate using live pricing & availability. This provides clients with ease when planning an event and allows suppliers to save time when submitting quotes. We advise making use of our messaging function which allows suppliers to write a message directly to the client to ask for more details about their event. This will go directly to the client’s emails and they can respond which will open up a conversation. We also advise you to keep your calendar up to date at all times so you only receive bookings when you have availability.

      Thanks,

      Dom

  41. Hello,

    your ‘phone SMS send doesn’t work. There is a 0 already there which negates my o and so the number is correctr but when I see the notice on your page saying that the SMS has been sent, the 1st zero of my number is missing. Thus, I cannot register.

    Thank you.

  42. Hello,

    I had someone who booked but didn’t pay a deposit or respond to my text or email. How do I cancel the booking post event date as it didn’t happen

  43. I have still not received payment. I thought only energy companies kept hold of your money like this. Shame your payment department aren’t like your constant reminders to ‘update my calendar’ like I’m one of your employees!
