What Happens When Clients Login to Pet Sitter Plus for the First Time?

Modified on Fri, 26 Jan at 3:57 PM

This process is how clients who have already had a client account set up will access the client portal for the first time.

Tip: You may find that you prefer to learn Pet Sitter Plus for a period of time before you give your existing clients access to the client portal if you don't want to offer online booking right away.

Or you may prefer to create a new client record yourself rather than ask new contacts to "register" so you are sure that all the fields have been completed. See How Does a New Client Register Online? for more information.

Note:   Once a client account has been created in Pet Sitter Plus, existing clients can Login using the link (URL) for the client portal for your business.
  • their Username will be the email address of the main contact on their account, OR
  • their Client Account Number - the 10 digit number which is unique to a client
