Website: If you have a separate website for your restaurant, you can include the URL here to connect your online presences.

Operating Hours: Specify the days and times your restaurant is open for business. This helps customers know when they can place orders or visit for dine-in service.

Netron Apps: Explore a range of apps specifically developed to complement your restaurant's needs. These might include:

NetronEats ECOM: A branded online ordering system with a mobile app and website, allowing customers to browse your menu and place orders conveniently.

Netron POS (Point-of-Sale): A mobile or tablet application to process customer orders, accept payments, and manage customer interactions at your restaurant.

These partners might offer expertise in areas like online marketing strategies within the NetronEats ecosystem or optimizing your restaurant's NetronEats profile for maximum customer visibility.

2.2. Upgrading Apps and Expanding Services:

The Netron Marketplace might allow you to upgrade your free NetronEats apps to PRO versions, potentially unlocking additional features and functionalities. Explore the available options to see if there are PRO features that align with your restaurant's goals.

Applying for card payment services through the Netron Marketplace might enable you to accept credit card payments both online through your NetronEats ECOM app and in-store using a card processing machine integrated with the NetronEats platform. NetronEats likely partners with specific payment processors, so carefully review the terms and fees associated with these services before applying.

Remember: The availability of specific apps, services, and payment processing options might depend on your region and your NetronEats plan. Carefully explore the Netron Marketplace offerings and consult NetronEats documentation or support for clarification on pricing and availability.

STEP 3. Configure Menu

Step 3 of the NetronEats Get Started Guide delves into configuring your restaurant's menu on the NetronEats platform. This is a crucial step in attracting customers and showcasing your culinary offerings. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect in this stage:

NetronEats Menu Configuration

Building Your Menu:

The NetronEats platform likely provides a user-friendly interface to build your menu step-by-step. Here's a possible sequence:

Add Menu Categories: Start by defining broad categories to organize your menu items. This could include categories like Appetizers, Main Courses, Desserts, Drinks, and so on. Categorization makes it easier for customers to browse your menu and find items they're interested in.

Add Product Sizes: If your menu items come in different sizes (e.g., small, medium, large for drinks), you can define these size options here. This allows customers to customize their orders according to their preferences and appetite.

Add Products: Now you'll be able to add individual menu items to your restaurant's NetronEats menu. For each product, you might be prompted to enter details such as:

Product Name: A clear and descriptive name that accurately reflects the menu item.

Description: A brief description to entice customers and provide additional information about the ingredients or preparation method.

Price: The price of each menu item for each size defined earlier (if applicable).

Image (Optional): Uploading high-quality images of your menu items can significantly enhance customer appeal and encourage orders.

Add Modifiers: Many dishes can be customized with additional ingredients for an extra fee. Here, you can define modifiers such as extra cheese, bacon topping, or different sauces for customers to add to their orders at an additional cost.

Add Modifiers Group: To organize your modifiers efficiently, you can group related options together. For example, you might create a "Pizza Toppings" group to include all possible toppings customers can add to their pizzas.

Add Menu Groups (Optional): This feature might allow you to create specific menus for different occasions or customer segments. For instance, you could create a "Lunch Specials" menu group featuring discounted lunch combos or a "Kids Menu" group with smaller portions and options tailored to children's preferences.

Remember: Adding clear descriptions, high-quality images, and accurate pricing information is essential for creating an appealing and informative menu that entices customers to order from your restaurant on NetronEats.

By carefully configuring your menu within the NetronEats platform, you set the stage to showcase your culinary creations and attract customers to your restaurant online.
