Menu Entry Introduction

A summary of how our menu entry is set up from top to bottom

To add your store menu you need to first add a Menu.

A menu can consist of a Single Menu (where you would only have the list of one menu called “Menu”) or a Multiple Menu where the menus would be displayed as a drop down box on the online ordering widget. Examples of menus that could be added are “Main Menu”, “Lunch Menu” and or “Dinner Menu”.

Within a menu we have categories, an example of a Category would be Burgers, Sides, Hot Dog, Desserts and Drinks.

Within each Category you will have Products, products can be divided into:

Simple Product

An example of a simple product would be Chicken Fried Rice:

Product Name - Chicken Fried Rice

Product Description - Wok fried rice with chicken, egg, spring onion, carrot, green peas, thinly cut lettuce and a drop of sesame oil.

Product With One Option

An example of a product with one option would be Fried Rice with selection of meat as an option:

Product Name - Fried Rice

Product Description - Wok fried rice with egg, spring onion, carrot, green peas, thinly cut lettuce and a drop of sesame oil. Please choose your meat from the option box.

Option Group - meat option (in this option group you would list all the meat options such as chicken, shrimp, beef or king prawn).

Product with Multiple Options

An example of a product with more than one option would be Fried Rice with selection of meat as an option and hot or mild dish:

Product Name - Fried Rice

Product Description - Wok fried rice with egg, spring onion, carrot, green peas, thinly cut lettuce and a drop of sesame oil. Please choose your meat and how hot your like your dish.

1st Option Group - meat option (in this option group you would list all the meat options such as chicken, shrimp, beef or king prawn).

2nd Option Group - how hot you like your dish (in this option group you would list the options such as Mild or Hot)

And finally within an option group there is a Nested Group. A nested group is an option of a product within an option, that is when a customer selects a dish and get an option, once choosing an option another option comes up. To clarify nested groups, we will look at adding a pizza.

Product with One Option and One Embedded Option

As an example of a product would be a pizza with three size options of 12”, 14” and 16” that have different prices and embedded in the size option customers will get a list of extra toppings to choose from and again the extra toppings have different prices based on the size of pizza selected.
