[2021] Google My Business “More hours”

Google is giving you now more flexibility to create different operating hours for the different services you provide. Therefore, you should use “More hours” to select the hours for specific services your business offers such as online operating hours, delivery, pickup, etc.

Important notes before you start:

  •  “More hours” don’t display until you first set regular hours.-
  • “More hours” options available to you are decided by your business categories.

Examples:

In general, you should set “More hours” as a subset of your primary hours. For example, a convenience store that’s open from 6 AM–9 PM may have hours that look like this:

  • Business hours: 6 AM–9 PM
  • Pick-up: 6 AM–8 PM
  • Hours for the elderly: 10 AM–12 PM
