Learn how to add items to your menu.



Menu Items are the food items customers order. i.e. Steak Sliders with French Fries or Potato Chips. 

To add Items to your Menu, go to Menu Admin from either the Merchant Portal or the POS itself (Main Menu> Settings>Menu Admin).

Menu Admin will launch on the items tab, Click New Item to create one from scratch.

In the window, type the name of your Item. 

You can then enter the Price or Price + Tax. If you have bar drinks that you want to sell at a flat rate of $7, you can enter in $7 in the Price + Tax field and the item price will populate correctly to the left.

Then, assign it to a Category (i.e. Appetizers, Breakfast, Sandwiches, etc).


Set your Tax and To Go Tax rates, if applicable.  


Our POS allows Items to print to up to 2 printers. Select your Printers as needed under Tax. Prep tickets will print on these selections.
