Libersy and Ecwid Enable Merchants to Cross-Sell Products with Bookings

Merchants that Work by Appointment Now Can Recommend and Sell Products Alongside Appointment Bookings.

ALMERE, NL (1 July 2014) - Libersy (www.libersy.com), the Appointment Maximizers for businesses/service providers that work by appointment, announced today an integration with Ecwid Inc., the fastest-growing, global e-commerce platform for small businesses, to allow Libersy’s retailers that work by appointment to easily cross-sell products with each of their appointments.

Ecwid ( www.ecwid.com) is used by over 500,000 retailers in 175 countries and is available directly and through a network of partners. Ecwid’s e-commerce application enables retailers to add a full-featured online store to any existing website in minutes. The multi-platform Ecwid is also Facebook’s most popular store builder app.


Libersy’s online booking solution called Libersy Calendar enables service providers like hairdressers, beauty and nail salons, garages and dentists to offer appointment scheduling to any existing website in minutes. Consumers can book their appointment themselves via the website of the service provider and they will receive automated confirmations and reminders of each appointment. This saves time, reduces disruptions via the phone and prevents no-shows. Libersy offers an extensive appointment management tool that includes CRM and also integrates with many sector specific software solutions, and now also offers full-featured e-shops through its integration with Ecwid. Libersy is available directly and through a network of partners.


“A lot of small- and medium-sized businesses that work by appointment also Jim O'Hara, President of Ecwid sell products and Libersy’s booking solution provides a smart, innovative option to cross-sell products with services thus boosting product sales,” says Jim O’Hara, president of Ecwid, Inc. "Further, by combining Libersy and Ecwid the transactions of both products and services are brought online which turns merchants’ websites into a powerful online tools to get the most out of each appointment.”

“We’re very excited to partner with Ecwid and provide unique Adriaan van der Hek, CEO Libersy value for Libersy merchants using Ecwid e-shops,” said Adriaan van der Hek, CEO of Libersy. “Libersy allows merchants to actively promote and sell relevant products to their customers with each appointment, and customers can take away their order with their appointment. Furthermore, by adding product sales to appointment-booking websites there is more reason to visit the site, and more visitors often means more sales.”

Just like Ecwid can work with any website, Libersy can as well. To demonstrate the power, Libersy recently launched an all-in-one solution called “Libersy Websalons.” This is a responsive website where customers book appointments and order products. After signing up for a free Libersy Websalon account a website with 5 pages is created. An Ecwid webshop is automatically added to the site as well as appointment scheduling via Libersy Calendar. While setting up bookable services like “mens haircut”, “change winter tires” or “30 min massage” in Libersy Calendar, users simply can select a product from their Ecwid store as a recommended product. Recommended products will be shown to the consumer directly after booking an appointment as well as in the confirmation, reminder and thank you emails.
