Everything Your Restaurant Needs in an Online Ordering System

Online Ordering FAQs

Can I activate Flavor Plate’s online ordering under my current subscription?

Yes. Our built-in online ordering feature is available with every Flavor Plate subscription.

Are there any additional monthly fees or commissions?

No. Just like our built-in Gift Card feature, our online ordering feature is included with every subscription. There are no additional monthly fees or commissions. There is a standard credit card processing fee, and a one dollar service fee applied to each order. By default, the service fee is applied to the customers’ order. If you'd prefer, you can designate the fee to be paid by the restaurant.

How will order notifications be received at my restaurant?

  1. An email notification will be sent to your chosen email address(s).

  3. An optional push notification will appear on the device you're logged into.
  4. All orders will be displayed in the Online Ordering Dashboard in your Flavor Plate admin.

Will Flavor Plate’s online ordering system integrate with my POS?

During our phase one launch, the online ordering system will not integrate directly with POS systems. When an order is received (via three methods of communication listed above), it will be entered into the POS by a member of your staff.

How are payment processed for online orders?

Our online ordering system is integrated with Stripe.com to seamlessly and securely process all transactions and deposit funds directly into your bank account.

Am I able to use another merchant account provider to process transactions?

At this time, we are integrating with Stripe.com for all online payment transactions.

What if my restaurant has multiple locations?

You are able to use online ordering for multiple locations if you have individual sites set up for each restaurant location. If you currently have multiple restaurant locations included under one primary site, you will need to create separate sites for each location. Please contact us for details.

Will my customers be able to pay for their online order using a gift card?

At this time, the only accepted methods of payment are credit cards and debit cards.

Can I use Flavor Plate’s online ordering for pick up orders combined with a third party service for delivery orders?

Yes, you can set both of these options under the online ordering settings in your Flavor Plate admin.

How do I handle refunds for incorrect orders?

Refunds can easily be processed through your Stripe.com account.
