Yelp Platform is Growing: Did Someone Say Spa Day?

Before consumers decide to spend money at a local business, they turn to Yelp -- whether it’s to help them discover the best pizza joint, a trustworthy locksmith or a quaint B&B for a weekend getaway. This is exactly why we introduced Yelp Platform last year, to give people a seamless way to transact directly with the businesses they’re already discovering on Yelp. We launched with delivery.com and Eat24 for food ordering and delivery, and today we’re excited to expand Yelp Platform with Booker for spas and salons!

Been dying to treat your better half to a pamper sesh? Now you can head to Yelp to find just the place, then schedule your appointment directly from a Booker supported salon or spa (like The H Salon in Beverly Hills). Not only can you book directly from your computer or Yelp’s mobile apps, you can choose to save your payment details so you won’t have to enter them again for the billionth time.

A select number of spas and salons are available for booking on Yelp Platform today and we’ll continue to roll out more in the coming weeks.

We’re continuing to add new categories and partners in order to bring consumers more ways to transact directly on Yelp. For more information on partnering with Yelp, please check out yelp.com/developers or contact bizdev@yelp.com.
