The following settings are found in the 'Online Ordering' section of talech.com under 'Settings'.
|Enable Online Ordering||Enables or disables the online ordering feature of your microsite.|
|Auto-approve orders||When enabled, online orders will not require store approval. NOTE: The store will still need to send the order to the kitchen (if equipped with kitchen printers).|
|Minimum/Maximum Prep Time||These times are used to provide your customer an estimated time for the order to be ready for pickup.|
|Use dynamic order throttling||Enables feature to adjust order ready time based on number of open orders.|
|Average Order Time||With Dynamic Order Throttling enabled, average order time is used to estimate the earliest the customer's order will be ready.|
|Maximum Open Orders||With Dynamic Order Throttling enabled, this is the maximum number of orders the system will allow to be open before preventing new orders to be placed. NOTE: The open order count includes orders placed in-the-restaurant in addition to online orders.|
At least one order type must be enabled. Use the drop-down menu to select an order type that should be allowed to order online, then enable one or both of 'Pre-pay Online' or 'Pay In Store'. To enable a second order-type for online ordering, simply select another order type and choose a payment option. Selecting either payment options enables the order-type for the online ordering cart.
|Pre-pay Online||Allows customers to pay online for their order. This typically requires a separate processing account specifically for your Online Store depending on your card processors policies.|
|Pay In Store||Orders placed online can be paid online through the register app, same as all other orders.|
|Minimum Order Amount||Order total may not be below this value.|
|Maximum Order Amount||Order total may not be above this value. This prevents customers 'spamming' the store with the largest possible order.|
