Integrated online payments are currently unavailable. Payments and tips can be facilitated in person by cash, credit, and debit card upon pickup or delivery. If paying by card, the payment terminal will prompt the customer for the tip.
Your customers can choose to pay over the phone, or with cash, debit, or card upon pickup or delivery.
If the customer has provided a phone number in their order, you can call them to process their payment through a card-not-present credit transaction. For help on how to process card-not-present transactions, please visit this guide.
