Our booking engine was built specifically for artisan classes, and offers best-in-class functionality you won't find elsewhere.
We power the bookings for Hobbycraft (Europe's biggest art retailer with 100+ brick and mortar stores), all the way to artists and small businesses who are just starting out.
Teach in person, online and/or sell physical craft kits. If you’re selling kits, you can take advantage of our courier integrations to automatically generate shipping labels and manage tracking
Booking a class is an emotionally-driven decision. Make your class shine and excite your customers, with a beautiful photo and video gallery.
Our widget is easily embedded in your website page(s), and displays and captures bookings for your experiences. Our widget can be easily customised, so that it reflects your branding.
Attract and secure large group booking requests easily, with our market-leading Requests and Invites features, which capture the right info upfront and automates the booking process. Say goodbye to cumbersome contact forms and tiring back-and-forth conversations.
If your dates don’t suit a customer, they can easily add themselves to your class waitlist. They will be automatically emailed as soon as you add new dates with a link to book, ensuring you don’t miss out on these sales. And we'll collect data on their preferences, so you create new sessions at the right times.
Easily reschedule, cancel, refund, and more. You can even let your customers cancel and reschedule themselves (within your policy), saving you even more time
Our automated emails help you to capture 40%+ more reviews compared to other platforms. This will help you build trust and increase your conversion rates.
By default, we'll list your classes on classbento.com, our fast-growing marketplace, to deliver you more customers.
Our US support team is available via phone or email, 5 days a week from 9am-5pm to offer you customer and technical support.
No lock in contracts, no monthly fee, no setup fee, no transactional fees.

Our platform makes it easy to also list your classes, experiences and products on classbento.com, to get additional orders from our large and growing audience.
Orders that come via classbento.com attract a 20% fee (to reflect our marketing investments there).

I like the ease of communicating with the prospective client via the dashboard and once booked, the fact that we can communicate directly with the client; it really creates a personal connection before the event and everyone is always so excited in anticipation. It makes the actual event so much more enjoyable because I feel like talking to friends.
I also like the ease of adding extra participants and charging for other extras, e.g., cold packs or extra chocolate boxes, etc.
As a full-time virtual art instructor, I could not recommend ClassBento more. My business has grown exponentially since I listed my first event on the platform back in 2019. Compared to other platforms, ClassBento offers the most freedom and control over how my business operates. I love that I can set my own pricing and can directly communicate with customers requesting private events. I look forward to many more years of working and growing together!
I like that the site shares all customer information with me and does not try to hide anything. And the commission structure is very fair. Other sites I work with take much more. I would prefer to do all my business through ClassBento.
Also, the booking engine (widget) for my site works great.
Overall the experience is very positive and I also like that ClassBento donates a portion of proceeds to mental health organizations.
Customer service is very responsive and detailed in their responses. I also appreciate the ease with which you can speak with customers, answer inquiries, create invites, etc. I feel like the ClassBento website is intuitive. I've also used the widgets and QR codes for my business website and flyers.
The quality of assistance throughout the process from beginning to end from the day I signed up to the first time booking of classes and the help I received without even asking. ClassBento is A+ in my art journal :) and as a partner for my business to grow along with theirs.
I appreciate how advanced the platform is with technology features and the opportunity for us business owners to grow with the platform
I like the fact that ClassBento acts as your partner - trying to support and encourage your business growth!
The backend stuff is great for scheduling and it’s intuitive.
Friendly and easy platform to book experiences in NYC
