Set up bookings through a provider

When you manage your bookings through another booking provider, you get web and app services that seamlessly use your customer’s Google Account. Your customers also benefit from built-in integration with widely used Google products, like Calendar, and automatic reminders so they don’t miss their booking. 

You can use the booking tab in Google My Business to view the booking history of your business listing for bookings that came in through Reserve with Google.

Turn on bookings

If you don’t work with a provider to manage your bookings, you can choose one of our supported scheduling providers. Learn about how to offer your services online.

To choose a Google My Business provider:

  1. On your computer, sign in to Google My Business. If you have multiple locations, open the one you’d like to manage.
  2. From the menu, click Bookings. If you don't see this tab, then bookings aren’t an available option for your business category or region.
  3. Sign up with your provider of choice. 
  4. Your scheduling provider account is automatically linked to your Google My Business account within one week. After you link your accounts, you can schedule bookings through Google.

If you already use a scheduling provider, you're automatically eligible to receive bookings. In your Google My Business Bookings tab, you can see your booking history made with your provider in Reserve with Google.

Important: Fees may be applied by your scheduling provider when you book through Google. Check with your provider for more details.

Turn off bookings

Contact your scheduling provider to remove online bookings through Google. Keep in mind that if you turn off booking, you impact any services you offer online, like classes or virtual estimates.

Mark a location as temporarily closed

To make your profile appear as temporarily closed on Google Maps and Search:

  1. On your computer, sign in to Google My Business.
  2. In the menu on the left, click Info.
  3. To the right, point to the section “Close this business on Google.”
    • To expand this section you might need to click the arrow.
  4. Click Mark as temporarily closed.

Share your bookings link

Booking links make it so your customers can easily book anywhere they can find your business. You can share your booking link on Instagram profiles, Yelp, Facebook pages, or your website.

To share your booking link with customers:

  1. On your phone, open the Google My Business app and tap the Bookings tab.
  2. In the top right, tap the menu, then tap Share booking link. To send your booking link directly to a customer, copy and paste the link.

Manage your customers & bookings

Work with your scheduling provider to update your customer information or modify a booking.

View your bookings insights

You can see insights for bookings scheduled through Reserve with Google only. For bookings scheduled through your provider, you can find insights on the scheduling provider’s website.

Important: Businesses in the dining category can't see Insights for bookings.

Manage your services

If you want to have group classes or manage service availability in bulk, you can do so through a scheduling provider. To manage your services, go to your scheduling provider’s website.
