Happity Bookings is designed with the needs of baby and toddler class providers in mind. Whether you are a small business just starting out, or a large established franchise, Happity Bookings can help your business grow.

There are no fixed-term contracts, and because you'll connect via Stripe, payments go direct from customers straight to your bank account as soon as they're available.

There are two payment options, depending on how you wish to use bookings for your business.

  • Sales of ad-hoc spaces (7% commission)
  • Monthly flat-fee subscription (0% commission)

Whichever you choose, you can set up Happity Bookings and no charges will be incurred until you've made your first sale.

Please Note: Stripe charges a small card payment processing fee separately (see below).

Ad-hoc Bookings

This is best suited to those just getting started or if you want to make the most of Happity as a marketing platform.

We charge 7% commission (incl. VAT) for each online booking made.

Bookings for free trials cost £3.50 each (incl. VAT) (but really we'd suggest you charge customers a small nominal fee for trial classes instead!).

Monthly Subscription (commission free)

Happity Bookings can also be used as a standalone booking system for your own website.

Our affordable fees are based on the number of spaces you've sold. This is competitive with other independent booking systems (like Bookeo and Booking Bug), and because it's designed for a specific type of class provider, it's typically much easier to use and saves on admin.

You'll also get personalised branding for your booking pages, a Google map of your venues, and the added bonus of class information flowing through to Happity Search for seamless marketing.

This option works out cheaper if you are taking more than £214 worth of bookings per month. 

  • Small - £15 inc. VAT (£12.50 ex. VAT) up to 250 booked spaces per month
  • Medium - £30 inc. VAT (£25 ex. VAT) up to 800 booked spaces per month
  • Large - £54 inc. VAT (£45 ex. VAT) up to 1600 booked spaces per month

You'll have access to all features on all tiers. Billing happens at the end of the month based on your actual usage - so no second guessing which tier you'll need, and payments stay in line with what your business can afford.

Note: A 13-week term booking counts as 13 spaces booked. This means you may pay more at the beginning of term when pre-selling a lot of spaces, but less in quieter months.

How To Get Started

If you already have a free listings account with us, you can switch Happity Bookings on directly from the dashboard. Simply go to Profile > Bookings.

If you don't yet have an account, drop us a line on the blue button below and we can help you get set up.

Happity is run entirely by UK-based parents who work remotely. We're friendly, we speak in plain English(!) avoiding technical jargon, and may well be available to support you in evenings and weekends.

What is Stripe?

Stripe is an online payment processor that is similar to Paypal except with lower fees (1.4% + 20p per transaction). They have a great user interface, state of the art security and first-class customer support.

The chances are you've already used Stripe without knowing it as they are the payment processor of choice for big brands like Deliveroo, Asos and Squarespace.

We connect payments directly to your Stripe account because not only does it mean you can access your payments as soon as they're available, it gives you additional tools to view all of your payment history, create invoices and to connect your sales information up to accounting packages like Xero - saving your precious admin time.

We know that every little bit makes a difference when you're running a small independent business. By doing the best we can for your business, it's the best we can do for ours too. 🙂
