Note that other pages are also added to your site (e.g. the order tracking page). These pages are visible to customers when they order from your business.

Step 2 | Set up scheduling

It's important to choose scheduling and availability settings that make sense for your business so you can prepare orders on time. For example, restaurant owners can schedule orders to be delivered immediately or later the same day. Other businesses, such as caterers, can set up scheduling so they accept orders days in advance.

  2. Click Order Scheduling.
  3. Choose how you want to schedule ordering:

Step 3 | Choose pickup & delivery preferences

Choose how you want customers to receive their orders. You can set up delivery from one or more locations and/or pickup from one location.
When selecting your pickup and delivery hours, take into consideration your prep time. For example, if you take an hour to prepare an order for pickup, and you select 9 AM as the earliest time, customers can start placing pickup orders at 8:00.

To set up pickup and delivery:

  1. Enter your business location(s) in the Business Info settings.
    Note: Currently, you can set up multiple delivery locations but not multiple pickup locations.
  2. Go to Restaurant Orders Settings in your site's dashboard.
  3. Click Pickup and Delivery.
  4. Select what you want to set up:

Step 4 | Set up tax

Set up tax collection to make sure you're in compliance with local tax regulations. Customers see the tax details during checkout.  
If you also use Wix Stores or Wix Bookings on your site, you can set up tax collection for all your business solutions in the same place.

To set up tax:

  1. Go to Restaurant Orders Settings in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click Tax.
  3. Set up tax collection.
    Note: You can set up tax using the manual method or the automatic tax collection.

Different tax rules apply in different locations. Consult with an accountant or your local tax authority for specific information relevant for your business.

Step 5 | Select additional checkout settings

Tailor the Checkout Page elements to your business requirements by customizing and arranging them. You can choose to automatically generate invoices for online-paid orders, manage policies such as terms and conditions, privacy, returns, digital items, and contact information. Add fields like company details, subscription and policy agreement options. Enable gift card payments and expedite returning customers' checkout with saved details for a seamless and efficient experience.
