What is reserve with google?
Google Reserve is a new way to be found and booked for services and classes in your local area. Similar to Yocale’s marketplace but now on a Google level!
Here is how it works:
1. When a potential new client searches for a service or a business using Google Search, Google Maps, or the Reserve with Google website, they will see the upcoming matched services & classes you’re offering. Google users will then have the option to select an appointment or class time, and optionally purchase and complete their transaction right from the Google screen.
2. If a Google user searches for your business name, your Google Business listing on Google Search and Google Maps will now have a "BOOK" button which will then show your realtime availability for instant online booking.
This makes the booking experience faster and more efficient. In addition, if the user has their credit card information stored through Google Wallet, they can use that to pay during the booking process.

How Are Payments Processed Through Google? How Are My Client’s Credit Card Information Stored?
If you have enabled your classes or services to accept pre-payments then Google will prompt the user (your client) to pay with the credit card they have already stored in their Google Wallet. If there’s no card stored, they will be asked to add one.
Once the user enters the payment, Google passes the card information through the Yocale payments processing system via a secured connection.
Yocale then submits the card information and transaction amount to be processed through your existing merchant account.
The payment is processed and settled exactly as if the user had directly provided their card information through your business, and the funds are automatically deposited into your merchant account.
Your client’s credit card information will not be stored in your Yocale site, however it is stored in their Google Wallet.
