Set up bookings through a provider

Managing your bookings through another booking provider gives you web and app services that seamlessly use your customer’s Google Account, simplifying the booking experience. 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 of your Google My Business app 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 have a provider to help manage your bookings, you have the option of choosing one of our supported scheduling providers.

To choose a provider:

  1. Open the Google My Business app and go to the Bookings tab.
    • Note: If you don't see this tab, then bookings isn’t available for your business category or region.
  2. Tap the menu on the top-right, then tap Choose a booking provider.
  3. Sign up with the provider of your choice.
  4. Within one week, your scheduling account is automatically linked to your Google My Business account. After linking, you can receive bookings through Google.

If you already use a scheduling provider, you're automatically eligible to receive bookings. You'll see your booking history with that provider for bookings made in Reserve with Google in your Google My Business account on the bookings tab. 

Note: Your scheduling provider may apply fees for booking through Google. Check with your provider for more details.

Turn off bookings

Contact your scheduling provider to remove online bookings through Google.

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 on your website.

To share your booking link with customers:

  1. Open the Google My Business app and tap the Bookings tab.
  2. In the top-right, tap the menu and tap Share booking link.

Copy and paste the link to send it directly to a customer.

Manage your customers and 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.

Note: Businesses in the dining vertical will not be able to see Insights for bookings.

Manage your services

If you’re looking 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.

Mark your business as unavailable

Each scheduling provider has a different setup for availability. Work with your provider to optimize your booking experience.
