Restaurant Order Flow

Urgent orders

An order automatically becomes an urgent order once there are 15 minutes or less left before its delivery target time.

Late orders

When an order is still preparing and the delivery target time has passed, the order is highlighted in red as a late order.

For those times when your orders are running late, and a customer is asking for an update, you can now let them know through Orderpad. So there’s no need for you to call Just Eat. A few taps on the Orderpad screen will send the update to your customer.

When a late order is reported by customer, Orderpad will notify you.

If an order is late the customer might request for updates on it. Orders for which the customers want an update will have the following icon: Update icon

You can choose to snooze the first notification for 2 minutes, but when it pops up again snooze will not be presented again.

To give an update just select the order on your Orderpad and select at which stage the order is currently at. You can also update the time it will take for the order to be delivered.

If you select order status as Preparing or On its way you’ll be asked to provide the time it will take to get the order to the customer.

Once this is done, your customer will receive the update of their order status and the expected time of delivery.
Use this new feature to help keep your customers better informed, and happier with the Just Eat experience you’re providing.
