Turning On Table Ordering
Table Ordering is a great way to streamline service within your venue, allowing customers to view, browse and pay for their order without picking up a physical menu, needing to queue, or flag down a staff member.
It is free to turn on as part of your Bopple subscription, to enable:
- Log into Venue Manager
- Go to Order Settings
- Toggle on 'Table Service Orders'
The next step is to generate a table service URL that pre-populates the order type as table delivery, this URL will open the Bopple web app on customers' mobile phones.
Building your table service URL
Grab your standard venue menu URL from the sidebar by logging into Venue Manager
It should look like this: https://bopple.app/menu/4954
Add the following parameter to the URL:
It should look like this: https://bopple.app/menu/4954?order_type=deliver_table
The most efficient deployment of your table service URL is to convert it into a QR Code so customers can use their phone camera to open the link.
Setting Up a QR Code for Table Ordering
Communicate to your customers how they can order from their seat by setting up a QR Code to print onto signage and adhere to tables. This practice is also referred to as Contactless Ordering.
Copy the URL you generated above for Table Ordering.
Open QR Code Monkey or another QR Code Generator.
Paste your unique venue table ordering URL into the code generator.
Customise your code with your logo or adding your brand colours.
Download your QR code and test it with your phone.
Use your code! Print on venue signage, loyalty cards, and decals to adhere to tables and windows.
To promote your codes on signage, add simple instructions such as:
Open your camera app and hover your phone over our QR code to view our menu & order
Place a contactless order! Scan this code with your camera app to view our menu & pay
Setting Up Table Number URLs
Additionally, you can set up an individual URL for each table location in the venue by pre-filling the table number for the customer. The extension for this is
&table_number= followed by a number (up to three digits). It should look like this: https://bopple.app/menu/4954?order_type=deliver_table&table_number=12
You can then use each URL to generate a QR Code (same steps as above) for each table around the venue however, this is only recommended when table locations are permanent.
