Fortunately, there are small things you can do right now to make the most of your online food ordering service. With the release of WPCafe v2.2.0, we are helping you build just that.
Importance of Online Food Delivery
Online ordering and delivery systems are crucial for any restaurant’s growth. It results in higher sales volumes and greater customer satisfaction. About 60% of customers order food online at least once a week with another 31% ordering online at least twice. Of these customers, about 34% spend at least $50 when ordering food online.
This is a clear indication of how much a restaurant can earn by selling food online. Apart from that, here is a brief list of benefits for having an online food delivery system.
- Reduce your Operating Costs – Food delivery platforms charge extra costs that can be reduced with your own food delivery system.
- Get larger order Volumes -. Restaurant space is limited so selling online means you can serve more customers regardless of less floor space.
- Stay ahead of your Competition – You can connect with your customers directly online and prevent them from traveling to their nearest restaurant.
- Manage your Menu and Delivery Zones – Easily update your menu with food that is in stock and set delivery charges for specific zones.

Add Restaurants on Google Map
Easiest way for people to find your business is through Google Maps. Now you can add a Google Map location for your store to let customers search for your store. This simple step can help boost your sales by letting customers quickly find your restaurant. WPCafe lets you do that with only a few simple steps.

For some restaurants, it might be profitable to set a minimum order amount. WPCafe makes it easy to do this. You can do this straight from WPCafe settings and it will be updated to show on minicart, cart page and checkout page. Restaurants can take advantage of this feature to ensure more sales for online orders.
Reducing Checkout Time with Google Autocomplete Address
One of the reasons for cart abandonment is a lengthy checkout process. No one likes to wait for food, especially hungry customers. To improve cart checkout time, WPCafe brings you Google Autocomplete address feature. When a customer starts typing, Google will automatically give suggestions and make it faster for customers to fill in their address.
Create Delivery Zones with ShipDay Plugin
