GETTING STARTED

PREPARATION

As long as you are an active Square merchant, you can be ready to accept online orders in minutes – whether or not you have a website.  We’ll create a website just for your store that you can share with your customers.

 

 

STEP 1: This will eventually lead merchants to the Square app market. For now, merchant needs to contact us directly for the Square Partner App option. 

  • Download/install Steps from Square will go here. 

 

STEP 2: Store Settings

Adjust your store settings so that your online store is customized to the way your business operates.  

The key settings and what they impact are described below:

  • Store URL: What would you like your website name to be? We’ve provided a suggestion though you can change it as long as another store is not using it.  We’d recommend something easy to remember and share with your customers.

  • Publish Status: When set to "Publish, the store will be displayed in the store directory.  Otherwise, the store is available for access through the Store URL, but will not be displayed in a Store Search.

  • Accept Orders: If set to "Yes" then, the store will accept orders.  If set to "No", then users can still access the menu, but the Checkout button is disabled.  Do not use this setting to limit orders during off-hours.  Instead, use the Pick-Up Hours to automate when orders are accepted.

  • Verify Customer: When this is enabled, your customers will receive a code via SMS or Email. They enter this code in the Orderspoon site. This confirms your customer’s contact info is correct. 

  • Order Alerts: You can enter 1 mobile phone # that will receive a text message whenever an Online Order has been processed

  • Allow Guest Order: Your customers can checkout as a Guest when this is enabled. Customers name/email are still entered for every order, but no Orderspoon profile has to be created by your customers. 

  • Order Later: Enabling this feature, allows your customers to place an order for a future date/time. You can set how far in advance your customers can place their order for. 

  • Show Unavailable Categories: This setting determines if your Unavailable Categories are displayed on your Orderspoon menu or not.  You can set the availability of Categories for specific times during the day. Very useful tool for Lunch/Breakfast that are available during specific hours. 

  • Google Tag ID: You can track your Orderspoon analytics with the use of a Google Tag ID

  • Pick-Up Order Options:  What is the order preparation time you'd like to provide your customers?  You can set a convenience fees for pickup orders as well as a minimum/maximum order amount.  

 

STEP 3: Setting up printing options.
