FLAT RATE : where you can set minimum order value, free amount, delivery charge. Nice and simple. One rate.

DELIVERY ZONE : Where you can be very creative in how you set up your areas and pricing. Ideal for varying rates depending on delivery address.

  • Delivery Zone : A list of your previously created zones. It wouldn’t make sense to add the same delivery zone to a store twice, so only those zones that have not yet been allocated will be offered.

  • Maximum Cooking Time : Specifies an average maximum for preparing an ORDER. Can / Will be used in reporting and calculating lead times.
  • Maximum Delivery Time : Specifies an average maximum for delivering an ORDER to this DELIVERY ZONE. Can / Will be used in reporting and calculating lead times.
  • Cost of Delivery : Use this  to define how you create a cost for each DELIVERY ZONE. Note this is YOUR cost that will be used in reporting etc – NOT the cost you are charging the customer –
    • Fixed Price : If you pay the driver a set amount for this zone eg $10.00.
    • Percentage of Order : If applicable set the % of the total  ORDER that will be used as the cost of the delivery.
    • Percentage of Delivery Cost : Where you pay the driver a % of the fee you charge the customer.
