Hi, i’ve seen the pre order functionality you now have. If I set the opening times from 5pm till 7pm for example would the pre order slots only show between those times?
Also can card payment be made even with pre order?
Also is it possible to set the Minimum days in advance per day for example Thursday Friday Saturday would need to be ordered 1 day in advance however I’d like sundays to be ordered from Wednesday through to Sunday
My takeaway runs a collection service only of Takeaway food
Thursday, Friday, Saturdays 5pm till 7pm
and Traditional Sunday Roasts 12 noon till 3pm

I completely understand and applaud you for asking the question first.
I’ll get back to you soon with a few “known issues” (i’ll need to write now actually so people understand the possible limitations) and have a think if your scenario would actually be “doable”
just give me a bit of time

>would the pre order slots only show between those times?
depends on the settings. you can choose to only allow preorders when you are actually open
or show the timeslots available during your opening hours a customer can choose from when you are closed
>Also can card payment be made even with pre order?
yes (note: if using paypal, it should not be enabled in “checkout” mode, but as the default “normal” re-direct. Although it will work, if you want to set a maximum number of orders per timeslot , it will not be as reliable in checking whether a timeslot is still available due to the way paypal implements the “checkout” procedure displaying their own paymnt buttons in an iframe)
>Also is it possible to set the Minimum days in advance per day
No, sorry. Minimum orders in advance is only a global setting, so you can set those number of days generally , but it cannot be different for each day
If you have any other questions, let me know

So in regards to the times if say the opening times are 5pm – 7pm customers would still be able to choose a time slot at 7.15 pm for example?4 May, 2020 at 6:07 pm #48531
if you are open between 5 and 7 the only timeslots available are between 5 and 7
if you are closed at any given time the timeslots available will still only be the ones between 5 and 7
in essence, the customer can order outside of your opening hours (unless specifically disabled) for a timeslot *during* your opening hours13 May, 2020 at 8:53 pm #48866This reply has been marked as private.13 May, 2020 at 9:02 pm #48869
for the time being , the only way to do that would be to do a “dummy” order by yourself for that timeslot so it’ll be taken away from the available ones
(I don’t understand why that question is marked as private ?)
