An Introduction to Popmenu's Online Ordering System

Popmenu Online Ordering gives your guests an online ordering experience that lives within your restaurant's website. Say goodbye to unnecessary third-party ordering apps, complicated guest experiences for your customers, and lost revenue to third-party ordering fees.

Do I need an iPad or mobile device to manage my orders?

No! For each order submitted by a customer, you'll receive an email and/or SMS notification with the order details, prompting you to head to your Popmenu account and "Accept" the order. If you have an iPad or tablet in your restaurant, you can log into your Popmenu account using a web browser or download the Popmenu app for iOS 12+ or Android 6.0+ devices!

Delivery: In House vs. DoorDash

In House Delivery

Delivery orders can now be received directly from guests online in Popmenu. In order to utilize this service, restaurants are required to provide their own drivers to deliver orders.

DoorDash Delivery

All delivery orders are paid online. Restaurants must have a connected Stripe account to receive delivery orders.

DoorDash orders cost the client $6.99 plus any tips that are included with the order. In addition, Popmenu charges a $1.00 processing fee. Restaurants have the option of subsidizing this cost for guests. The delivery fee charged to guests at checkout will be $6.99 minus the subsidized amount.

Setting Up Payment Processing

Popmenu Online Ordering system collects payment through Stripe and Square.

Online ordering payment processing is available through our partnerships with Stripe and Square. Each vendor charges a 2.9% credit card processing fee and .30 cents per transaction. Popmenu also adds a $1 for orders paid for online for pick up or delivery.

Does Billing work for multiple locations?
Billing is available per location for clients with multiple locations. Learn how to create and manage multiple stripe accounts or multiple locations with square accounts.
