Yelp will now display a GoFundMe donation button on restaurant pages, allowing users to easily support local businesses feeling the biggest impact from the coronavirus.
The new feature, which is being rolled out in the hardest-hit areas this week, will appear on pages for businesses like restaurants, bars, beauty parlors, and gyms.
On top of this, Yelp and GoFundMe have committed to matching the first $1 million in donations made through the new button.
When businesses reach the $500 donation threshold, the companies’ combined relief fund will contribute another $500.
This announcement comes on the heels of Yelp’s $25 million pledge to independent local businesses in the form of waived advertising fees.
