Menu Setup Overview
Steps to Online Food Ordering
After your sign up, here are the complete steps to getting online ordering started commission free.
After you sign up you will immediately be directed in step by step process to enter in your:
- Delivery Location
- And much more..
Next step, you will be guided through enterting in your menu information:
You are not doing this for free, next you must set up a merchant account, we suggest Stripe.com
Stripe has a 2.9% .30 transaction fee and no extra monthly fee. Our menu system integrates nicely with little features like “pro-authorizing” a charge for 6 hrs so that in the event there is a cancellation or refund, no charge back fees occur.
If you have your own delivery guys or only are going to offer pickup, then you dont need to worry about finding a delivery service. Otherwise, we can set up a 2ndary email so that email notifications can be directly sent to a delivery service of your choice.
Next, do a soft launch with friends and family, test things thouroughly. Understand your system and then go live on your website!
Additional ways we can help take it to the next level.
You’re busy, we get it. You don’t have time to enter in your whole menu…but here’s the thing….its important. So either you do it, or hire us to do it and get it done.
Already included are a ton of pre-made ways to handle promos. But in the base version you can only have one active. With the Advanced promo package you get access to more pros and you can have unlimited promos active.
Having your social profiles set up properly is CRITICAL. If this is not your area of expertise you could spend the time learning to be an expert, or hire us. To maximize your ordering potential, your Yelp, Google Business Page, Apple Maps profile, and facebook page need to be set up perfectly. In addition, the link from these profiles to ordering should be set up perfectly. If you are reading this, and you forgot to set this up, hire us. Lets get you making money.
All websites are NOT created equally. Wix and other cheap website platforms would love for you to believe they are the best and the cheapest…but they straight up lie.
A website needs to load fast, be mobile friendly, have the right messaging, have the right call to action, look professionally designed, have up to date professional pictures, and be built the right away to gain a high google page speed score.
The result of doing all this means you rank higher in search, on google maps, and convert more orders…how much is this worth…alot. So make sure you build your site right and not loose out on sales.
Just like our competitors, we can build and sell you a purpose driven app for making orders to your site.
While we can do it, we don’t push it like our competitors. They have no problem selling you something you don’t need, we do. Occastionally it does work for some customers, and we are available to do it. Use the contact form to inquire for more infrormation on this integration.

We integrate with Stripe, one of the most popular tools for online transactions. Stripe charges 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. When an order comes through, the order is pre-authorized to make sure the card is valid for 6 hours. That way if the order changes or gets cancelled by you, there are no charge back fees. After the 6 hour period the transaction completes to your account.
