How to manage product addons

The possibility to add addon to particular dishes in the online food ordering system can be very useful. Addon can include pizza ingredients, dips, vegetables on a burger or in sushi. Everything depends on the type of restaurant you manage and what you want to offer your customers.

Creating addon

  1. Go to the “Menu” section and click “Manage menu” next to the menu where you want to add addon.
  2. Add a new product group that will only include products displayed as addon. See how to add a product group to the menu.
  3. When creating a group, check “Group is not visible directly in the menu”.
  4. Add products that will be displayed as addon along with prices in the created group. See how to add products to a product group.

This way, you have now created a product group in the online food ordering system that will include addon for selected dishes. If you want to create various types of addon because you serve pizza and burgers and each of them will offer different addon, simply create two groups.

How to add an addon to the product

When you have already created a group of addon and included particular products in it, you should add the possibility of choosing them with particular dishes on the menu. Otherwise, your customers will not be able to order them.

  1. Go to the “Menu” section and click “Manage menu” next to the menu where you want to add addon.
  2. Choose “Add addon” next to the product you want to configure.
  3. Fill out the subsequent fields.
  4. Save your changes.

Additional information

  • You can choose addon that will be checked by default in the menu (e.g. for pizza). In the “Default addon” choose addon that are to be checked by default.
  • You can reduce the price after the default extra is removed, thanks to the “Subtract from price” option. In such a case, the online food ordering system will subtract the price from the dish cost but it cannot be lower than the price you set for a given item in the menu (including all addon). The system can also reduce the price even below the cost of a given product in the menu. Check the “Subtract even if lower from the meal price”.
  • In the “Minimum quantity” and “Maximum quantity” fields, you can set minimum and maximum quantities of addon your customer can choose.
  • “Minimum product value” and “Maximum product value” enable you to limit the value of addon your customer can add to an item.
  • “Disable the possibility of making changes in products” makes it impossible for the customer to configure the number of default addon for a given product.
  • Thanks to “Disable the possibility of removing default products”, you can make it impossible for the customer to remove the default addon. In such a case, it is only possible to add new addon.
