Set Up Online Ordering

Online Ordering allows guests to order directly from your restaurant website to drive sales, even when in-person dining isn’t an option. With Toast Now: Full Suite and Toast Now: Digital Ordering, you get access to our comprehensive online ordering solution that connects guests with your restaurant from anywhere.

Contactless delivery connects guests with your driver to communicate delivery preferences like leaving food at the door rather than handing it directly to them. Contactless delivery is available on both online ordering and the Toast TakeOut app. 

In this section, you’ll walk through how to set contactless delivery distances and customize delivery fees.
