WEBINAR:  Using The to Accept Online Food Orders – Wed., July 22nd 3 pm to  pm

In this online session, you will learn how to setup and use The Ordering App. This easy and extremely affordable tool will allow your customers to order and pay online. Works with any POS system, and has deep integrations with Square or Clover. Completely free to use until January 1, 2021 (and then their fee is just 1.5% per order).
In this session, we will discuss:
1. How The works
2. Signup and Setup
3. Managing your menu, hours, and other attributes
4. Integrating into your website and marketing campaigns
We will look at how a local ice cream shop in Hillsdale is using this system. Overall, it is fairly straight forward, so we’ll have plenty of time for questions.
