ChiDesk integrates with Reserve with Google so that millions of Google users can better discover your business on Google Search and Maps, and then easily book directly with you. There is no cost involved for this integration.
Setup is easy and done through ChiDesk. This integration will enable us to match your ChiDesk account with a Google Business Profile, automatically adding a "Book" button to your Google Business Profile, in addition to other places where your business may appear on Google Search & Maps. If you don’t have a Google Business Profile yet, you can set one up here. If you already have a Google Business Profile, please ensure that your business name and address match what’s in your ChiDesk site setup.
- Make sure the name and address of your Site in ChiDesk exactly matches that of your Google Business Profile or the matching will fail.
- If your business is situated inside a hotel, you must setup your own Google Business Profile for your business, you cannot use the hotel Google Business Profile as it won't exactly match your business name.
