There is always a reason to make a dining reservation: an anniversary, birthday or promotion. But, if a customer can’t easily make a reservation on your website, they might go to your competitor for sake of ease. So, what can you do? Update your website with GoDaddy GoCentral’s OpenTable online reservations integration. You’ll be able to get more customers and optimize your table availability.
OpenTable is trusted by more than 26 million diners a month. By listing your restaurant with OpenTable, you can promote your business to customers who are actively planning a dinner reservation and may be located near your business.
Online reservations help you manage restaurant turnover so that you can optimize seating capacity during busy meal times.
You’ll be better able to manage your inventory and ensure sufficient staffing by having predictability for when guests will arrive. Plus, your guests will have a better dining experience by knowing that their table will be ready when they arrive.
No one wants to wait to wait in line on date night!
Who’s it for?
OpenTable integration is supported in the United States and multiple other markets, including Great Britain, Mexico, Australia and Japan.
What problem does GoCentral + OpenTable solve?
Never miss customer inquiries for a reservation.
You will also get promoted on OpenTable and their partner sites so that your business has more online exposure.
How do I add OpenTable in GoCentral?
GoCentral makes it easy to start taking online reservations in three easy steps.
1. Decide where the reservations should be shown on your website
We recommend adding it directly to your home page or creating a separate Reservations page. This will make it easy for your diners to book online reservations in as few clicks as possible.
2. Add the Open Table Reservations ‘section’ to your website
Click the blue plus sign to “Add Section” on the page you want your reservations to appear.
In the right panel, scroll until you find “Reservations” and add the OpenTable option. You can also find it using the Search bar.
Now simply add your OpenTable Restaurant ID to your site, and the reservation widget will appear for your diners to enter their booking. If you do not have an OpenTable account yet, click on the link to create one.
It’s free on GoCentral to add OpenTable reservations, and OpenTable has affordable pricing for use of their system.
3. Get notified when diners make reservations with you
You can turn on emails and push notifications so that you find out immediately when you have reservations, VIPs or cancellations. You can also access your guest list from your smartphone (Android or iOS).
OpenTable also enables you to automatically send email confirmations to your guests when they finish booking.
Get started with GoCentral + OpenTable
It’s quick and easy to start taking reservations from your GoCentral website. OpenTable offers an affordable plan that does not require a long-term commitment. If you decide to cancel, it’s a snap to remove OpenTable from your site.
