Site Features

Classbento's website is built by experienced teachers, programmers, designers, and eCommerce experts to cater specifically for recreational teachers and students.

Class creation and management features:

  • Masked locations: Lets you hide your exact location to the public (only indicating a general area), and only revealing the exact address to students to book your class
  • Flexible locations: Travel within a set distance, or use your own venue
  • Flexible notice: Lets you choose how close to the session you'll accept bookings. E.g. choose 10 minutes to allow last-minute spur-of-the-moment bookings, or choose 1 week to allow time to book venues and equipment
  • Course types: Teach one-off classes, or get students to sign up for courses (series of classes)
  • Private classes: Allows students to book a class for just their group (excluding the general public). You can set different prices as desired
  • Requests: Allows students to request specific times for your class, which means you don't necessarily need to keep your availabilities up to date on our site. If you accept a time, the student can then book it immediately
  • Follow: Allows students to subscribe to your class - they'll get updates whenever you add new available sessions
  • Spot management: Lets you manage students from multiple sources, including outside of Classbento, without oversubscribing any classes
  • Customisable sessions: Lets you change the location and/or class content for specific sessions, without needing to create multiple classes (e.g. you might hold your weekday classes at location X, and weekend classes at location Y) 
  • Tiered pricing: Maximise your hourly rates by giving students discounts for larger classes. E.g. $100 per person for a class of 1, $80 per person for a class of 2 students
  • Free classes: You can offer your class free of charge if you like, at no cost to you

Profile features:

  • Gallery: Upload up to 5 pictures to showcase your work. These could be photos of your artworks, classes, exhibitions, etc. You can label each picture to
  • Instagram integration: Include your Instagram feed in your profile. This means that your posts on Instagram will automatically appear on Classbento (with a slight delay of a few hours). This will help you attract students and followers

General usability:

  • Modern website: Our website is optimised in speed and usability for both mobiles and desktops, for all browsers. This means that you can easily manage classes on the go
  • Easy payments: You can easily accept all credit / debit cards and PayPal, without needing to set up merchant accounts

We designed policies to ensure the best possible experience for teachers:

  • Incentivised reviews: We automatically request reviews from students, and give them store credit to encourage them to complete reviews, which then strengthen your profile
  • No cancellations: We don't allow students to cancel bookings, meaning fewer nasty surprises for you
  • Customer service: We are the first point of contact for students, and send out automated communications to students, so that you won't need to spend time on basic admin questions - we'll take care of them for you
  • No-risk commissions: We only earn when you earn; we think that's the fair way to partner with our teachers. We keep a small 15% of the fees students pay, and cover payment gateway costs as part of this, so that you receive the full other 85% of student fees. No fixed fees, no listing fees, no account fees, no other fees.
  • Friends welcome: We'll pay you a 5% commission (out of our 15%) from the earnings of any teacher you refer to us, for their first 6 months

 

This is just the beginning; we'll constantly be looking for new opportunities to improve the experience for teachers and students. If you have any suggestions please contact us.
