Build Your Own Marketplace Website for Classes and Events
Book That In provides a platform for budding entrepreneurs to create their own niche service marketplace website with bookings at its core.
Your clients can self-serve - adding their business, classes and events to your marketplace without you lifting a finger. Check listings from your admin login and approve or remove to ensure all are relevant.
Customers simply pop in their postcode to discover what's on offer near them! Using advanced search algorithms, your customers can filter listings on your marketplace by various criteria such as Free Text search, Category, Date, Day of Week and Cost.
Using the Book That In booking engine, customers can book and pay for events, classes, subscriptions and appointments with your clients directly from your marketplace website. Charge your own platform fee to earn commission on bookings made on your site.
Monetise the traffic to your site by offering businesses the chance to advertise. Clients can target their adverts by UK counties, and can set a budget so ads stop showing once they have reached their maximum.
