Is there a way I can reflect this on my business listing. Currently I am having to put standard hours down and this is causing massive confusion for my customers. Ty

Hi @Vik C


Google business pages does not support by appointment, as the main eligibility requirement of a business page, is that customers can make in person contact with the business during stated hours.


So you have a couple of choices:


  • Remove business hours
  • Keep business hours, but make it clear in the description & on your website BY Appointment Only
  • Switch your business to service area which will hide your address ( address section in admin )
