Hi. How can we help?

Creating a pickup order profile

Pickup profiles in Order Anywhere allow customers to place takeaway or pickup orders from anywhere outside the restaurant. Customers can choose to pick up their order as soon as possible or schedule it for a later date or time.

After creating a new Pickup profile, generate QR codes or locate the profile’s URL to share with customers. By scanning a QR code with their phone or tablet's camera or visiting the URL, customers can open the profile’s ordering page to place an order.
