Accept payments via all popular methods, including credit/debit cards, PayPal, Apple and Google Pay, direct bank transfer.
flash_on Easy instant bookings
You can capture bookings and orders via public (instant) dates. We'll also help you to sell gift cards (which customers can redeem automatically later).
To help you get more bookings, your listings will automatically use our smart waitlisting feature, which will notify them once you've added new dates.
Rescheduling and cancellation is super easy. We'll automatically notify any affected customers.
If you capture bookings from multiple sources, you can also add them (one by one or via CSV upload), so that you have all your class info in one place
event_available Attract group bookings
Easily attract and capture more bookings for custom times - e.g. group bookings like corporate events, birthdays, and other celebrations, or even private 1 on 1 sessions.
Let customers pick from your generally available hours. You'll get notified by SMS and email, and can accept, counter or decline each request with the click of a button, saving you time that you'd normally have to spend calling or emailing them to get more info and secure the booking.
Once you respond, they'll automatically get a unique link to book it in.
tune Win custom orders
Does a customer want a special event? No problem.
Easily invite customers to pay for any of your experiences or products, at any price, date, and place.
Customise as much as you need to capture the booking - e.g. take a deposit and automatically charge the remainder later, make your offer to book only valid for a certain time, and more.
You can easily get and send invoices too if you need them.
screen_share Manage your website's orders
Have your own website? You can use our widget there to capture bookings via our system, and benefit from all our automations.
You can sell experiences, products, and/or gift cards through our widgets.
You can also easily manage vouchers, push email subscribers to our email marketing platform, integrate with Google Analytics and Facebook to track your marketing campaigns, and much more.
It takes just a few minutes to set up (all you need to do is to copy and paste a few short lines of code over - almost all our teachers have easily done this themselves). Learn more
sync Sync your listings, automagically
If you're already listing your experiences and selling lots on another platform, we can often pull this data over to ClassBento, automatically.
We can use this to set up your listings (including all their dates) and keep them synced regularly (e.g. every few hours) so that you don't oversell any of your sessions.
This means you can enjoy extra orders from our marketing, without extra admin work on your end.
We already do this successfully for lots of teachers, and we can do it for free. Just contact us to see if you're eligible.
subscriptions Build loyalty with Subscriptions
Win recurring revenues from your customers easily, with our integrated Subscription programs feature.
You can create your own Subscription programs - you set the price, what classes or listings they apply to, etc.
Customers enter their payment details just once initially, then we take care of the recurring charges from there.
They can can redeem their Subscriptions automatically on the dates you make available on your applicable listings (or they can Request dates).
It's easy to get started
Create a profile, then list a class, experience or kit (or more). It will only take a few minutes, and you can even use our Bento AI to help you.
We'll review your submissions, and if they meet our quality standards, then we'll publish them on our website within 3 to 5 business days.
Once your listings are live, we'll also automatically advertise them on our website, and externally.
Customers will discover your listings and book them. We'll automatically collect reviews for you from these customers. These reviews will build trust and increase the number of bookings you'll get from us.
You can use our widget on your website and/or social media account to capture bookings too.
You'll be paid automatically, once your customer has experienced your service. Specifically: the next business day after each class or experience; 7 days after the order for pre-recorded videos; 14 days after the order, for kits or products which don't have an accompanying class with a date; and 7 days after each charge, for Subscriptions
We only earn when you earn. 15% (inclusive of VAT) of your listing price is all we take (you keep the other 85%). We'll take a lower commission rate of 3.9% for orders that come your website (through our widget). No other fees apply.

My experience with ClassBento has been great! I don't often contact my account manager however whenever I have the response has been very helpful and pretty swift.
The platform is easy to navigate and in general has made listing my classes so much quicker.
I do have a mailing list in my website however its great that folks can add themselves onto the waitlist for individual classes - I honestly feel this has really helped my business grow and I'm listing new classes and within days they are fully booked - honestly so happy with your service! Thankyou!
I'm just really happy with how sleek & easy to use the platform is. It's really helped to streamline my income & I find it so much easier to book workshops through ClassBento. I'm thrilled to be a part of it. I've been recommending the website to other makers who are thinking of hosting workshops. 10/10, absolutely fantastic.
I am super grateful for class Bento. It's definitely 100 X better and easier to navigate than other platforms (Eventbrite, design my night and air BnB)
It's also really great having the widget which makes my website run so much smoother.
And that it's so easy to communicate with the class Bento team
Many sites focus merely on the customer user experience, but ClassBento have meticulously designed a frictionless back end system for creators. This end to end system allows us to focus on the day to day running of our events and making sure that our clients and customers are happy.
It was super to work with you so far and looking forward to working with you next year, we have some new virtual cocktail making experiences to share with you. We certainly didn’t expect to see the volume of bookings last month, it exceeded all expectations
About a year ago we started using ClassBento for the full ticketing and communication of our website and I was hugely impressed by how accommodating, pleasant and professional they were. I can wholeheartedly recommend them and their services.
Love the platform and the ease to be able to be flexible with people who book onto the workshops so we can easily move them if they want to reschedule. the communication on your end is brilliant and also to the customer as well.
To tell you, from my experience, ClassBento is the best platform operating in the UK. I have been recommending students to use your services in general as you do a much better job taking care of students and tutors.
The ClassBento team is wonderful, they are helping and supporting any way they can. Making us, the hosts, feel like we all one company. Also, payment is very quick, which is extremely important for our cash flow
Shenice from the ClassBento team has been great. Any issue I’ve had, she has helped me resolve quickly and effectively. I’ve told so many friends about this website. It really is great.
Thanks Niall and the team for the great experience. We are very happy with the booking system on Class Bento and find the request system works really well for us.
We have been really delighted how working with you has taken a big strain off our ability to book people from a wider area than ever before
I’m happy with all the business I’m getting from the platform and amazing support from Gemma and Shenice
