PayLink Learning Center

Pending Orders


PayLink’s Pending Orders screen operates similar to a Kitchen Display System (KDS) and chronologically displays all active and completed orders that were placed within the past 6 hours. 

The Pending Orders screen helps you keep track of all new orders that come in from PayLink. An audible chime will be played for new orders and order updates.

Orders are split up into 4 tabs: Upcoming, Current, Ready and Completed.

  • Upcoming: Shows upcoming orders, more than 15 minutes out
  • Current: Shows orders that are due for preparation within the current window (15 to 90 minutes)
    1. Set this to a higher number if you’d like the chime to be received more frequently for new orders
  • Ready: Shows orders that are ready and have been prepared but not yet with the customer
  • Completed: Shows all orders within the last 6 hours that have been marked as completed. Use the Sales Report to view orders that were completed over 6 hours ago.
