How it works
Get more appointments
Bookio gives you the tools you need to make it easy for clients to book and pay. Your account comes with an online calendar, client management and a public booking page, the important things you need and none of the stuff you don’t.
Keep your schedule full
The easier & faster you make it for clients to book, the more they book. When you display your services and your availability online, clients choose their preference. It's that easy. You get more control and a fuller schedule - without a single phone call, DM or receptionist.
Bookio’s up front deposits via PayPal helps clients to commit to the appointments they've made. People commit with time or money. Make sure you get paid for your time. You can also add notes for no-shows more control.
No extra apps, systems, or hardware. One simple system to collect payments with PayPal.

Online appointments made easy.
Bookio was designed by Scott Purdie in Edinburgh, Scotland. Bookio is beautifully designed and is easy to use.
When creating Bookio, I wanted to change 3 things:
Per-user pricing with add-ons.Too many options.Upfront payments or deposits.
When you pay $57/pm, thats it. Its all inclusive. Add more users if you want, its easy.
I built less so its easier to use than the other booking systems I've used.
You can collect deposits or payments upfront, before a booking is confirmed.

4. Cookies, Pixel Tags and Other Web Beacons
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or device if you agree. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to us or our service providers. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.
We use the following types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Websites. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Websites.
Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Websites. This helps us to improve the way they work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We use these to remember who you are and keep track of your preferences, e.g. the cities for which you want to be shown Partner offerings. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you landed on one of our own, and the website you visit after you leave our own, if this information is supplied to us by your browser.
Targeting and Remarketing Cookies from Third-party Advertising Networks. Bookio has relationships with third party advertising companies to place advertisements on our behalf onto other websites, and to perform tracking and reporting functions for our platform and our advertisements. These third parties may place cookies on your device which automatically collect information about your visit to one of our Websites, your IP address, your ISP and the browser you use. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation patterns of our platform and Websites. You can learn more about this type of remarketing below.
You may notice that sometimes, after visiting a website, you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. That’s because the website you visited has placed a cookie on your web browser. Using that cookie and web analytics tools, the website owner will be able to show you adverts on third-party websites that they think you might be interested in. This cookie does not give access to your computer or mobile device, but may be able to identify you from other details.
Our Websites use Google Analytics to show relevant adverts to users who have previously visited us as they browse the web. This enables us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you. You may see Bookio or one of our Partners in search results pages (using Google Adwords), on YouTube, in banner adverts on Gmail and on other services run by Google.
Opting Out of Cookies
You can refuse to accept some or all cookies by modifying settings within your browser. For guidance on how to do this, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org. However, if you block strictly necessary cookies, you may be unable to access certain parts of our Websites. If you wish to opt out of remarketing cookies, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative Opt-out Page.

where we need to perform a contract with you (e.g. to create an appointment or to process a payment);
where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests (see the "Legitimate Interests" section below); and
where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
We may use personal information held about you in order to:
provide you with offers for products and services from participating Partners, including offers based on variables such as stated and anticipated customer interests, personal characteristics, or location;
recommend certain Partners offerings to you (e.g., to suggest Partners to add to your favourites page or remind you when it's time to rebook a service);
facilitate and fulfil requests for appointments for Partner offerings, including their purchase and redemption;
evaluate eligibility of customers for certain offers, products or services, and evaluate the types of offers, products or services that may be of interest to End users;

customising the Services to provide you with a better user experience;
marketing to inform End Users and Partners about other Services we offer that might benefit or interest them;

We ask you not to share a password with anyone. We cannot absolutely guarantee the security of the internet, external networks, or your own device, accordingly any online communications (e.g. information provided by e-mail, through our Website or our Apps) are at your own risk.
8. Storage and Retention
Where we store your personal information
We are a company in the United Kingdom. Where possible, our data is hosted and stored within the European Economic Area or with partners protected by Privacy Shield agreements.

Whenever data is transferred outside of the UK or EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that any transferred personal information is treated securely and in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Bookio will store personal data as long as Partner accounts continue to use our software, and for a period of not more than 24 months thereafter. Users may elect to have their data removed from Bookio either by contacting the Partner directly or by contacting users on bookio.co. In the case that a Partner explicitly indicates their intention to cease to use our software and have their data deleted, personally identifiable information stored with their account shall be encrypted and/or removed. Other information related to activity on the Apps will be retained for reporting and analytical purposes, or other purposes at set forth in Section 9.

to Partners where you have purchased services from a Partner through Bookio, or participated in an offer, contest or other activity sponsored or offered through Bookio on behalf of the Partner. We may also provide Partners with other personal information about you on your Bookio account to send customised offers, to validate the purchases, to aid and troubleshoot redemption, to combat fraud, as part of legal proceedings affecting Bookio and the Partner, to facilitate a direct relationship between Partners and customers, and to enable Partners to communicate electronically with customers who make purchases from the Partner;

to the public when any user of the Bookio app access your favourites page. You may, however, hide this information from the public by marking your favourites page as private;
to third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them.

Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to the rights above and, though we will always try to respond to your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so (for example, because the information no longer exists or there is an exception which applies to your request).
