Overview

PayLink puts you in control when it comes to the operation of your online storefront. Use the Online Store Settings page to configure your online store to best fit the needs of your business. 

 

Disable your online store 

To adjust the settings of your online store, navigate to Account 〉 Online Order Settings.

 

Deselecting all of the check boxes for Online Ordering Options will completely disable the ability for customers to place online orders. However, the link to your online store will still be accessible to allow guests to view your menu. This will display the message “Unfortunately we don't take orders online, but you can check out our menu if you like.” with a View Menu button.

                                             

Manage Order Types 

PayLink Online Ordering supports Takeout, Dine In,  Order at the Table, Curbside PickupRetail Pickup, and Room Service. Products can be tied to specific order types, see the adding products page for more details. 

  • Note: Only order types that you've enabled will be shown on your store's menu. 

When an order is placed the Order Type will be viewable on the Pending Orders screen.

Dine In and Takeout order types operate similarly for online ordering, the only difference is the label on the receipts notifying employees and customers of the order type.
