The WordPress developer WPExperts recently released its new plugin “WooCommerce for Restaurants.” This much awaited plugin offers an affordable, convenient way for restaurants to house their menu and ordering process on their own websites. The license fee for the plugin is $149.00 annually. Compare this to the 20-30% commission that DoorDash, Grubhub and other ordering apps charge restaurants on every order.
Even the Google ordering service integrated in Google Maps adds a surcharge of about 10% to menu items, which can make the difference between ordering or not for someone on a budget. Restaurant owners make higher profits with direct ordering, and the WooCommerce for Restaurants plugin boasts a buffet of features to customize the menu and ordering process.
WooCommerce for Restaurants Features
Some of the features included in this WordPress plugin are the following:
- Simple and modern menu design
- Display menu items by product name or by category (appetizers, deserts, etc.)
- Mini-cart feature to shows the order summary as customers shop
- Display your restaurant’s opening and closing times and provide timeframes for ordering
- Ability to increase and decrease items in cart
- Customize delivery options and prices
- Allow customer to include custom instructions
- Shortcode allows you to copy your menu to any page of your website
- compatible with the Extra Product Options (Product Addons) for WooCommerce
Setting up WooCommerce for Restaurants in Your WordPress Website
WooCommerce for Restaurants is designed for restaurant owners to create their own menus in their WordPress websites. However, if reading WordPress plugin documentation and working in the backend of your website is something you prefer to avoid, you can opt to hire a WordPress developer to set up your menu. WordPress developers can also provide further customization to your menu.
