5 min read
  • This article is about Wix Restaurants Orders (New), Wix's new online ordering app. 
  • For info on the previous online ordering app, click here
Manage active orders and get them out quickly, using Wix Restaurant Orders. 
The Online Orders tab is where you track the status of your orders. If you offer delivery, you can track the progress of an order through 4 statuses (in 4 columns): Pending, Accepted, Ready, and Out for Delivery. If you only offer pickup, you'll see only the first 3 statuses.
In addition to the information you'll find in the Online Orders tab, details of your customer's order, including contact details, customer notes, addresses, payment status, and more can be found in the Orders tab. 
This information is always available in the Orders tab, even after the order has been fulfilled or canceled.
