FAQs

  • OK! I like what I hear, how can I become a part of Foodie? (Creating a User Profile)

    We’re glad you’d like to join us. Please begin by creating a profile of yourself, you can only create a restaurant by first creating a profile of yourself. With this profile, you’ll be able to save preferred delivery locations; curate a list of preferred restaurants and have your own personalized order list; track your orders via text and emails; fund your personal wallet and save a debit card for faster checkout should you choose to order from any other restaurant on the platform.

  • I have created my user profile, so what’s next? (Creating a Restaurant Page)

    The next thing to do is to create a “restaurant page.” This can be found in the top right corner on your dashboard. Creating a page will help you set up your online restaurant in full. In this process, you’d be asked to provide the name of your restaurant, preferred username, password, and upload a banner image. We will be discussing the various aspects of creating and optimizing your restaurant in subsequent FAQs.

  • I have created my restaurant page, so what’s next (Creating an Outlet)

    The next thing you’d be prompted to do is to create an "outlet" or “location.” Foodie has been designed to accommodate large chain restaurants with multiple locations so that it’s easy to manage your individual sister restaurants from a single dashboard. At this stage of creating a location/outlet, you would be required to identify the closest landmark to your restaurant on the map; this may be a popular building, hotel, or bank (we recommend you select your restaurant’s location on the map If it has been previously added to Google maps). Put in other relevant details such as your restaurant’s address, street name, city, state, and country. Finally, you’d be required to input your service radius, which is how far you’d like to deliver. Please input a distance you know you’d be able to cover or deliver to at any time so as not to disappoint your clients — we recommend you limit this to a few kilometers (i.e., 2 - 5).

  • The Restaurant Dashboard, what about it?

    The restaurant dashboard is where and how you manage your restaurant. Here you will find the total number of page views, the total number of orders you’ve received so far on the platform, and your total wallet balance and history. It is from the restaurant dashboard you’ll be able to access your individual restaurant locations and set up them up as you please by utilizing the various easy-to-use tools we’ve created for you.

  • How can I access and set-up each Outlet (Restaurant Location)?

    Outlets (your individual restaurant locations) are the base or “powerhouse” of your operations. Outlets can be accessed via the Restaurant Dashboard under “Page Locations” on the left-hand panel. Here, you can create as many locations as you require, and you can also click on each Restaurant Location (Outlet) to access and edit it. For each outlet, you can view the total number of page views, the total number of pending orders, and the total amount of revenue generated by that particular location. Asides from those tools, you can as well access outlet specific tasks such as setting up meals, meal categories, managing orders, wallets, and other location-specific tasks and tools.

  • How do I set-up MEALS for each Outlet?

    Take full advantage of the platform by immediately setting up your meal offerings. You can access your MEALs from the left-hand tab in each Outlet. To start, please click on the "ADD MEAL" icon and fill in the requested information such as the name, image, price, and category of the meal. In the meal tab, you will also be able to make a meal available or not; that is, set it to display your restaurant URL page. You can also edit and delete the meal as you prefer.

  • How do I set up meal CATEGORIES for each OUTLET?

    Properly organize your restaurant by setting up meal categories. You can access your MEAL "CATEGORIES" from the left-hand tab in each Outlet. To start, please click on the "ADD CATEGORY" icon and input the name of a general category you'd like to use in grouping your meals. Making use of the category tool is very essential in helping your customers easily identify the sort of meals they would like.

  • So I've made HUGE sales, how do I CASH-OUT? (Wallet)

    Foodie automatically pays out all generated sales revenue 9 A.M. the following day (we operate a 24-hours pay cycle). You can access your "WALLET" from the left-hand tab in each Outlet. Here you will see the total amount of money you've generated in the last 24 hours. Your wallet consists of both your "LEDGER BALANCE" and your "AVAILABLE BALANCE". The ledger balance is the total worth of orders you've received for the day, while the available balance is the total worth of orders you've successfully delivered for the day. You may choose to cash out your available at any time by clicking the "PAYOUT" icon in the top right corner.
