Google is one of the biggest platforms and everyone wants to list their business on it. And we are aware of the fact that Google is listing hotels.
Before adding the Google Hotel channel to the QloApp Channel Manager you need the hotel to get listed in Google Business Account.
While a profile of the hotel aids in the searching for your hotel. Similarly, booking links helps potential customers easily book rooms in your hotel.
To list it you have to use Google My Business profile. Your hotel’s Business Profile will display on Google Maps and search without rates after its completion.
The bookings of your hotel increase more if you share your hotel’s direct rates and availability. Whereas Google does not help in doing it.
Therefore, here comes the QloApps Google Hotel in the picture.
It will help you share rates, availability, and prices with your hotels listed on Google.
Note: After sharing rates, free booking links will automatically start displaying in your listings.
Note: Google uses accurate information about your hotel and verifies it before listing your hotel in it. All the details are confirmed through Google Business Profile.
So add all the information of your hotel correctly as saved in Google Business Profile for the hotel.
From the QloApps Channel manager, you can know how to add a hotel/property.
Afterward, make sure all the properties whose prices you want to send through Google Hotels must be listed on Google My Business.
As you can see in the image, your hotels will be visible on Google search results.
