Google Order Delivery

Joy Hawkins posted in the Local Search Forums that there is a new Google My Business form to opt out of online orders on Google. The form is over here and business owners of restaurants can use it to remove the call-to-action button for online ordering.

The call to action button looks like this:

Google Online Ordering

I cannot tell you how many times Google shows me an option to order online for restaurants and I go through the process and it then says, sorry, this restaurant is not taking online orders.

I wonder how many businesses/restaurants will use this feature, I assume many of those who are not accepting online orders won't be savvy enough to fill out this form?

Joy said "Google started showing "order" calls-to-action on restaurant listings earlier this year. They have now added a new contact form for businesses who want these removed from their listing. Since it uses 3rd parties there are lots of businesses that don't necessarily want to pay a 3rd party to take orders for them."
