Food Menu


Why is your solution free?

Our business model is relying on the idea of a freemium model as we provide a simplified do-it-yourself ordering platform for free, easy to use by anyone. There are no hidden fees, commissions or contracts.

However, we do have a set of premium features (which are more complex) that the customers can choose to pay for if they find them useful for their business (like online payments or branded mobile apps).

Can I take orders without the restaurant app?

We do not support, nor encourage, an email, fax or desktop solution for taking orders, and there are many good reasons why we chose to provide an app instead. Shortly put, your online sales will be low if you take orders without the app we provide.

One way to increase your business is to provide existing customers a truly great service so that they will order again and again. The online ordering experience is part of that service. If you can accept and confirm orders within seconds plus giving an individual delivery / pickup time, your customers will be delighted.

How can I print the orders?

Please see the complete guide here.

Can I customize the look & feel of the widgets?

You can fully customize the styles of the See MENU & Order and Table Reservation buttons.

The colors and fonts in the ordering widget cannot be changed, as we are trying to focus the attention of your customer on the food, the ordering and the checkout process. This is why we carefully designed the widget using neutral colours on purpose. Moreover, as the menu is your dynamic ever-changing sales content, we have crafted everything with web-friendly fonts that renders consistently over any browser or device thus avoiding misalignments or nasty overlapping of fresh edits.

The most important feature "accepting money from the customers" is charged: By subscription costing $29 a month!!! And that makes it clearly a demo! And you don't see that from the beginning but much later in the process of testing it and having given up personal information, opening account on their site, etc etc etc ... One can get other similar plugins fully operational with almost the monthly payment they ask, and own them forever, and without the hassle ... of opening account, giving up personal information, etc ... To explain, in order for the plugin to work at all it requires to open an account on their site and go over a lengthy and very tedious process submitting many sensitive personal information, name, location, website, etc, and ... a mobile phone number! ... otherwise it does NOT work at all, even for basic testing! ... At least, say from the start, it is a demo! Don't say, no commissions, no costs, no fees, etc, require and store many sensitive personal information and somewhere down this tedious lengthy process one finds out that the plugin is missing most basic operations such as, accepting payments!!! ... which, you charge way too much! ...

Very simple to use without any coding. Just add a shortcode and the rest is done from the interface!

You have to be able to fit your business model into their application. It isn't flexible and if your business plan is different, you will not be able to use the tool.

You'll have to figure everything out for yourself because a bot can only help so much. If you take the time though, it is a decent alternative to Shopify, WooCommerce, Chow Now etc. as the fees are lower for restaurants.
