Chowly - Quantic Integration

Chowly integrates the third-party online ordering platforms such as Grubhub, UberEats, Doordash, and more with your restaurant’s point of sale (POS). This lowers staffing costs, increases revenue, and reduces errors making your customers happier so you can spend more time on your business and less time manually entering orders. Chowly allows you to display your restaurant menus on leading online platforms- Grubhub, UberEats, and Doordash, giving you an opportunity to grab the untapped market.

Enabling items for Chowly

Please make sure you have enabled the items for Chowly. You can enable Chowly for items from the backend portal. The below steps will walk you through the process of enabling the items for Chowly.

  1. Go to the Catalog section of the backend portal.
  2. Tap the Items tab, and select the item name that you want to display on the Chowly.
  1. Click the Online Ordering tab and tap underneath Enable Chowly, when it turns red it means this item is enabled for Chowly. Once done, click Save. Similarly, you can enable other items for Chowly.

Pushing menus to Chowly

Once you have completed the initial setup and enabled the items for Chowly, you can push your menus to the Chowly account. 

Warning: Please do not update your third-party menu directly on the provider side if you are using menu updates from Quantic.

  1. Now go back to the Chowly setup module and click the Push Menu tab.
  2. Click button to push your menu items to Chowly. It will allow you to display your restaurant menu on a selected provider’s online platform. Please be informed, that the process of changing the menu may take a few minutes. So, do not panic, the process is happening at the backend.
  3.  

Note: In case you have modified an item and you are thinking of moving it alone to the Chowly, you won’t be able to do it, instead you will have to move the entire menu to the Chowly. For example, if you have changed the price of Hot Wings from $6.50 to $7.00, and you want the same price to reflect on your Chowly account, so instead of moving this single item, you will have to push the entire menu by clicking the Push All The Changes button as described in the above section. In a nutshell, moving a single item is not possible in Chowly.

Webhook Setup

  1. In the end, go to the Webhook tab, copy the URL and forward it to Chowly to get the setup completed.
  2. Now you can exit the Chowly module and wait until the menu updates on Chowly.
