Booqable Is Easy To Use and Makes Doing Business Easy!

5.0 4 days ago New

Comments: Nothing but good to say about Booqable. The value I get from the platform is worth more than I am paying. Glad to have them helping me keep my business moving.

Pros:

Booqable has made it possible for me to turn my idea into a real business. It was easy to set up and get going and there is a lot of customization available.

Cons:

I honestly have no complaints. I find the interface intuitive and easy to use.

Alternatives Considered: Event Rental Systems and Goodshuffle Pro

Reasons for Switching to Booqable: Booqable presented itself as easy to use and set up which was a priority for me. Cost was also a consideration and Booqable seemed the best.

Excellent software for order management, web orders and simple online site.

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall we love it. It's made us so much more revenue than what we anticipated. A combination of webshop orders and paid ad traffic through google is a must in our industry. Booqable makes this easy.

Pros:

What I loved about it is that you don't need to be a web developer to be able to create a good functional website. Yes it lacks several bells and whistles of one but as a starter website and a business with less than 2 years I believe is excellent and it does the job. I love that we are able to create quotes on web browsers or it's application. Easy to create them. I love that it is so easy to create new items, their quantities, prices etc. As a growing party rental business this is important for us as we are expanding. What we love the most, is the automatic web shop orders. Being able to receive online orders has become the number 1 reason why we are able to get 3x more orders, without doing a thing (just the initial web setup.)

Cons:

Not being able to easily send quotes through the mobile app. Not being able to receive tips through the payment portal. Web design can improved. They need to allow the users to embed videos or images. Embedding Booqable's calendar to your mobile device calendar is not that great. It does not allow items to be edited so that's a bummer.

Alternatives Considered: Event Rental Systems

Reasons for Choosing Booqable: I needed a fully functioning web site and automatic webshop ordering.

Switched From: Square Payments

Reasons for Switching to Booqable: For the most part we choose Booqable because of its price vs features. It gave us what we needed at a time where our revenue wasn't as much.

It's not for everyone.

3.0 4 months ago

Comments: Frustrating. I've now put three companies online with Booqable within a year. The price is always the matching factor for start-ups. Booqable doesn't offer alot in terms of features. THIS IS NOT FOR A BUSINESS WHO PERFORMS SALES AND RENTALS. This product should only be considered for rental businesses only. My first company was rental and small sales for accessories and it was a nightmare. Booqable sells it's features that include sales and the product is very much not sales set-up.

Pros:

Collecting payment from customers. Having a website the communicates with inventory.

Cons:

Where to begin. The Booqable features included emphasis that sales were offered with their product and no limitations. When we got into it, with my previous company, it turned out that they couldn't perform simple sales transactions. We were very upset about this. The website templates are pretty restricted, and don't offer alot of flexibility with design layout. If you're super picky on design, I would say this may not be a good fit for you. There's so many basic features that just make sense that they don't have and when you ask for the item to be added asap, they simply say "We'll add it to our list, thanks." This product is for very basic users. If you want functionality that may be above and beyond, this is not for you. We set up using one of the templates. At no point did anyone state that you couldn't add photos or videos to the particular template. Built our whole website and then found out we couldn't add video. Now migrating to another site.

A solid rental platform for a short-term rental business.

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Booquable's low monthly price and support made them a great temporary solution for our company while we learned the ropes of online rental platforms. We knew we would invest in creating a custom rental website in the future, but needed a solution fast. and got a custom site together. Overall I found the Booquable team helpful and enthusiastic and willing to find creative solutions as long as the basic framework of their system supported a workaround. Where it didn't, I looked at how I could adjust our process to make it fit.

Pros:

Booquable is relatively easy to set up and doesn't require building a website from scratch to have a unique shop presence.

Cons:

Booquable is clearly modeled on a short-term rental business model. As long as you are taking full payment upfront for a simple fee, this site is a breeze. That said, it has some quirks when attempting long-term monthly contracts. The pricing display requires a workaround you'll need the Booquable team for. Most unusual is the need to express your first (or first and last) months rental payment as a percentage of the total contract. Making this match up to the round number you advertised the monthly rental rate at is nearly impossible. To top it off, there is no ability to set up automatic recurring payments. This means your staff gets to manually process every rental payment on the agreed-upon monthly date, and just put that in their calendars somewhere, I guess. As I say, if you do short-term rentals, none of these issues come up.

Alternatives Considered: WooCommerce

Reasons for Switching to Booqable: We didn't have the knowledge or skill to choose a viable WooCommerce rental extension that would meet our needs without buying up front. Too many we tried did not work out of the box for us.

Booqable sets us apart.

5.0 last month New

Comments: So far, Booqable has been pretty easy to use and understand for myself and customers. If I am not able to figure something out, I can usually just look up my question under the help section and find my answer quickly.

Pros:

I like that Booqable allows our company to have an overall different website image than all the other party event rental businesses out there. Our website and booking process is very unique and allows us to not fall into the "cheesy" event party rental systems category, but yet still be easy to navigate.

Cons:

The calendar. I would like to be able to see a whole month calendar layout without having to scroll.
