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 1 to 3 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. 20% of your listing price is all we take (you keep the other 80%). We'll take a lower commission rate of 3.9% for orders that come your website (through our widget). No other fees apply.

When I started my business most of my workshops were filled by family & friends and it was really challenging to connect with real customers. A key turning point for my business was when I partnered with Class Bento, most of my workshop bookings now come from them and now I have classes filled with the most wonderful strangers willing to learn and participate and keep arts and crafts alive. I love working with ClassBento, they feel like an extension of my business and they are so easy to work with and always willing to help. I chose to partner with ClassBento because they believe, like I do that engaging in creative activities helps keep you in the moment and promotes good mental health.
I feel so so so grateful, that I can't even put into words what I'm feeling right now, after realising that I have almost ran 50 workshops this year, in person, online, for Google, for carers in Victoria etc. I am honestly flooded in gratitude right now. I had the opportunity to have a chat today with one of the Victorian carers before our class started. She shared with me that this year has been really hard for them, but that taking these moments for herself gives her life and helps her to cope with the difficult times. I just wanted to cry, understanding that this that I do, and what YOU all do, matters.
Classbento has been wonderful to work with! I started teaching on Classbento this year and I had been very fortunate to share my passion for flowers with so many other people coming to my workshops. It is very easy to use and it takes away all of admin burden so I can focus on designing and teaching workshops. It also helps promote my business and build online presence through going on a live program in Today TV show and social media. Classbento's founders and staff are true believers in helping artisan's businesses and making social impact, I am personally touched by their attitudes and their passion.
ClassBento is a wonderful platform for both students and teachers. A great support for people to locate and book many creative avenues to open your creativity. I am a teacher whose class is on the ClassBento site and I enjoy working with the creators Iain and John who have brought this opportunity to others. They are a very supportive team. I love working with the students that come to my classes. It is rewarding in unexpected ways. The joy of being together. It is beautiful to engage with others and allow creativity to open. I highly recommend ClassBento and the classes they provide.
I am one of the teachers working with ClassBento and I can say that I absolutely love the platform! It is SO easy to use, set up your classes, and sell the tickets. If you are ever stuck with anything, Iain and John are there to help you out! Couldn't recommend them more.
Earlier last month, I had the opportunity to showcase on Today Tonight Show what brush lettering is all about and how it helps you unwind and relax after a long, busy and stressful day of work or life hustles.
This opportunity wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for @classbento.
As soon as I saw you were doing the online and craft box format I took a deep breath and jumped in. I haven’t looked back! I am loving meeting new students from all over the country (and even the world). I am busier than ever but not stressed because of the fantastic platform that you have built and the wonderful staff that make it all work. I have encouraged several friends to sign up as Teachers with you and many more people to take a class. Thank you again for everything.
Just wanted to let you know that we've had some lovely feedback that we wanted to pass on to you from our students over this weekend about ClassBento as a platform. I asked a few of my classes how they find the process of booking and the communication before class - every student said that they found it intuitive, clear and easy to navigate. As far as I'm concerned, this is a real testament to you as a team. Well done making something great!
I love the convenience of the platform, the fact I don’t have to chase invoices is great. Also been great to get me more exposure that I might not normally get on my own. As an art teacher in my other life I’ve also recommended to my students to also sign up to share their skills with the world
ClassBento has been a game changer for our business. Their website is super easy for teachers to use, their customer support is second to none, and the enquiries and bookings that come through the site has boosted our business significantly. We love ClassBento!
I LOVE that everything is automated, it makes my life so much easier. Also I find rescheduling when a teacher is sick to be quite easy. When I did have an issue with a troublesome customer I found the advice and support from Kate to be excellent.
I like that ClassBento is Australian owner and run, supporting dementia Australia, easy to use website that keeps getting better, small percentage when booked through my own link, quick responses and very helpful.
Quick and easy to list new dates. Easy to use widgets. Easy to transfer attendees to other dates if they need to move their booking due to illness, etc. Prompt payment at completion of classes.
Been with these guys as a teacher for some time now. They’re super responsive and very helpful. I love the idea of the website itself. Would be keen to try some classes myself. Keep on shining
I like the ease of the scheduling part and receiving updates on workshops, the platform is very user friendly & I receive almost all of my bookings through ClassBento!
Love ClassBento. so much easier to use than Eventbrite where it is difficult to book dates for the workshop and then manage tickets on those dates sold elsewhere.
ClassBento has been wonderful to work with. Highly professional, efficient, always on top of the ball! Highly recommend to everyone! Yegana
The dashboard is great, having all my bookings clearly in one place. I appreciate the ease of moving bookings around etc.
The platform is user friendly for customers, and I appreciate the volume of customer bookings brought by ClassBento.
I absolutely LOVE the ClassBento booking system. Your technology and team have helped grow my business. So grateful!
On the whole I find Ebony fantastic and the Class Bento experience is definitely superior to other similar platforms
