How much will I pay?

Booksy’s standard monthly pricing rate is £45.00/month or €49.00/month in Ireland, but as you’re a loyal GoPanache user who’s migrating over to Booksy, we’re happy to offer you a £1/€1 subscription for the next 3 months. To claim this special offer, just click on either of these dedicated payment links, for businesses in the UK, or businesses in Ireland. 

Please note that the migration discount is offered only for the base subscription and does not include Boost, an add-on feature within the Booksy Biz app that facilitates new client acquisition. Business owners who activate Boost get ranked higher in the Booksy search results within  the consumer app. Boost merchants also get more attention from increased profile views, and they receive access to an exclusive set of promo tools to support their business. If you decide to activate this feature, you only pay a percentage of each new client’s first appointment and that only applies, when Boost brings you a new client. Every appointment following that is 100% yours. To switch on Boost please go to More -> Boost Tab -> Enable Boost.
