Previously, to account for the commissions of delivery services in Poster, you had to either set up a separate location or duplicate your menu items. This caused confusion for waiters and hindered clear reporting
The new Order Source feature makes this process much easier.
Now, you can create sources for your orders, such as Uber Eats, Glovo, or Bolt Food, and easily set up unique dish prices for each source.
For example, consider a pizzeria that offers the following:
Pizza, desserts, alcohol, and non-alcohol drinks for dine-in customers.
Pizza and non-alcohol drinks for delivery by Uber Eats or takeout.
Delivery prices in Uber Eats are slightly more expensive than dine-in.
Now, let's proceed to set up such delivery prices in Poster.
🛵 Delivery set up
First, set up your own couriers and delivery services.
Enable delivery in Settings → Delivery.
Select Use orders statuses that are going to be available.
Go to Settings → Orders to create new sources like Uber Eats, or Bolt Food.
Enable Display on the POS for the sources you're going to use.
🍕 Menu set up
Set different prices for dine-in and delivery orders:
Go to Menu → Dishes to add new or edit existing items.
Click Display and price settings for locations.
Disable Locations or Order sources where such product is unavailable.
Set the dish prices for each location or order source.
🎒 Prices for in-house delivery by your employees
If the pizza delivered by your couriers costs less than on Uber Eats, set that price in Poster QR. This way, customers can order delivery directly from your cafe without using Uber Eats.
Go to Catalogue → Products of your Poster QR management console. Edit Margarita and set up the correct price.
Done! Select an order type on your POS app. For Dine-in and Takeout orders, the prices will remain standard, while Bolt Food and Uber Eats orders will have increased prices.
🥳 Promotions Takeout
Sometimes cafes offer a discount for takeout dishes. Create a promotion to discount takeout meals only:
Go to Marketing → Promotions to add a new promo.
Enter a promotion name and set start/end dates.
Select Locations where the promotion is available.
Select Menu items and categories which are available for the takeout promotion.
Enter the Quantity of the items required for promotion: Exactly 1.
In Stacking logic select Multiple times per order.
Select promotion days and hours:
In Preferred customers select All customers.
In Promotion rewards, set a flat discount, or a discount rate for promotional items.
This promotion is applied manually at the point of sale (POS) register.
