Online businesses expect more than a mere booking system, and that’s why at BookingLive we support more than 30 integrations that help your business reach its potential. From built-in customer reviews from Tripadvisor to the useful iCal integration. This allows customers to download the iCal file on the confirmation screen, for the booking to appear on their calendar.
Of course, there’s a remarkable range of integrations supported by BookingLive, but there are a few that stand above the rest.
Bundled in with our software as standard, SendGrid is a cloud-based email infrastructure programme, which relieves businesses from spending a lot of their time on maintaining a custom email system.
With SendGrid on your side, you can automate a wide range of emails, as well as track real-time analytics, offering an unprecedented look at the scale and success of your email campaigns. Information like opens, click-through and bounce rates are right at your fingertips. SendGrid has a huge scalability, making it a fantastic option for businesses with growth in mind.
Automated emails are first set up in BookingLive, along with the desired scheduling. From there, SendGrid ensures that the emails are sent out efficiently, avoiding spam and other filters which may stop your important email from reaching your customers' inbox.
Postcoder comes to us from Allies Computing and integrates effortlessly with BookingLive’s secure platform to provide an effective and easy way to look up addresses, providing you with accurate results.
That alone is a must have feature, but with Postcoder simplifying the booking, it’s an almost essential tool for any BookingLive customer. Capture correct addresses, improve mailshot conversions and encourage repeat bookings, all with the Postcoder integration and BookingLive – it’s a match made in booking heaven.
You might be familiar with the MailChimp name for their extensive sponsoring of popular podcasts, but what you might not know is that with BookingLive’s built in support for MailChimp integration, you can create all kinds of custom mailing lists.
If a customer ticks the ‘Marketing Permission’ box as they place their order, their email will automatically be pushed into a selected mailing list in your MailChimp account. This will then allow you to build your marketing mailing list and create targeted advertising campaigns.
MailChimp’s fantastic pre-designed templates mean that creating those campaigns is easy, and they can be shared anywhere too.

Whilst two of our three most popular integrations focus around emails, that’s just a thin slice of what BookingLive customers can expect from their integrations.

Once they’ve arrived on your website to book, our payment integrations mean that you can provide your customers with a wide range of secure and trusted payment gateways from the likes of Sagepay, PayPal, WorldPay and many more.
