** Premium feature
Absolutely not. We can create a brand new website for you. If you would like to keep your existing one, that’s also fine. We will just integrate the order online button into your existing website.
No. Web hosting is included at no extra charge. The Online Ordering System is a hosted service. We take care of the technicalities so you can focus on running your restaurant and making your customers happy!

They either pay directly to you if you don’t have the online card payment feature enabled, or if you have the feature, they pay directly online. All card payments are sent to your bank account directly by the payment processor. We help you to set it all up.
Yes there is. You can test our Starter plan for 30 days. I am sure you will be delighted with our App but for some reason, if you’re not satisfied, you can cancel the service. No questions asked.
No contracts, no commitment. You can cancel at any time.
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.
In order to achieve an almost real-time reaction by the restaurant, we first need to assure your client that the restaurant is ready to take the order and to make some noise once a new order arrives. Traditionally, the telephone is assuring the client that the restaurant is ready to take the order. If you do not pick-up the phone in a timely manner people just call somewhere else, right? Simple.
Using a mobile app is ideal for this purpose of replicating what was appreciated by the clients on phone orders and add the benefits of online handling on top. You just need an affordable device for order-taking, one that is easy to set up and use, without too much hassle.
Our system checks every few minutes if it still has a connection with your phone / tablet. In case it is not possible to establish a connection, you can not receive orders so we show this message to your customer. We thought this would be a better solution than having customers place orders without being served.
Please check to see if you are logged in the order-taking app on your mobile device, and if you have an active data plan or wifi connection. Also make sure you don’t have any app blocker or battery-saving applications installed.
If you look in the Admin panel you can find a section called Publishing, containing Facebook and Website.
To place the “See MENU & Order” button on your website, you need to copy the HTML code (which you find in the Admin panel > Publishing > Website) and paste it in the HTML source code of a page on your website. If you are not the creator of your website, then please ask your website administrator to help you out with this. It should only take a few minutes.
Make sure your button will be visible from your main homepage. For example, we have seen the button placed only at the bottom of the contact page which significantly diminishes the chances of getting any online orders.
For example, your restaurant serves both Chinese and Indian dishes in the same menu. You have the same categories (e.g.: starters, desserts, salads etc), but you have to use them 2 times, once for Chinese dishes, once for Indian dishes.
Our suggestion is that you create and name your categories as: Indian starters, Chinese starters, Indian desserts, Chinese desserts and so on.
The idea of our product design is to make menus simpler as clients get confused by complicated menus and that’s never good for online sales.
If you have other logistical/marketing reasons for which you should have a clear separation of menus, then it is better to sign-up with two restaurant accounts and take orders on two different mobile devices (e.g. there are two different chicken-based meals cooked by two different chefs in two different locations and people should not be able to cross-order one item from the Chinese menu and one item from the Indian menu).
If your plan is to provide a one-click ordering cart with thousands of food items, then putting the PW3 Design solution on steroids is not the right thing for your online sales. Please consider investing in a food portal with top choices, quick search, promo items, most popular, ratings, reviews and similar features.
The issue is that when you open the Facebook mobile app, you will not be able to see the apps/buttons/tabs you have installed on your Facebook page. The reason is that Facebook mobile does not allow any third party apps to be shown on mobiles. This does not apply only to our system, but also to any other applications made for Facebook.
However, we provide a smart link for posting on Facebook. You may use this link over the “Shop Now” call to action on your Facebook page, or to create pinned posts about ordering. This smart link detects the device type and serves the menu in the appropriate format, including mobile.
You can find your smart link along with step by step visual instructions in your admin area, under Publishing → Facebook. You will unlock Facebook Sharing and Shop Now as soon as you publish the app on Facebook.
Yes. the system is already available in most used languages and more are added every month by our community of contributors.
If you didn’t find your language available in the admin area settings, it is possible to speed its release by translating some parts in our translation module.
If you wish to contribute simply drop us an email at [email protected]. Make sure you specify the login email address of your restaurant account signed-up with us, and the language you are interested in.
You can create almost any logical association for combo offers, add-on up-selling and/or supersize deal. You may edit at anytime each dish name, description and food category. Also, you can fully manipulate your theme, categories and dish pictures. Further-on, you may tweak the See MENU & Order button by changing the color, the font, and even the text for your website and/or Facebook page.
The colors and fonts in the online ordering menu 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 crafted everything with web-friendly fonts that renders consistently over any browser or device thus avoiding misalignments or nasty overlapping of fresh edits.
PayPal offers several merchant programs, but not all comply with the requirements above.
What we discovered is that only “PayPal Payments Pro” and “PayPal Payflow Pro” can work as above but these two are not available in all countries.
Also, PayPal Payments Pro requires an ongoing flat fee and the commission are not particularly lower than with others: $30 per month, plus 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. Payflow Pro ($99 setup, $25 per month, plus $.10 per transaction) is for use with your merchant account from another bank or processor. Transaction fees charged by your merchant account provider would still apply.
As you can see PayPal standard doesn’t work and the other solution from PayPal is too expensive and cumbersome.
Stripe is simpler, has better commissions and you get approved within hours… so why complicate with PayPal these days?
