There are a few things we need to do before you’ll be able to go live with Restaurant Alert + Deliver and start taking orders. If you’re in the process of setting up the app, here’s a checklist for your reference to make sure you’re not missing a step!
- Choose a Pricing Plan
- Add your location/s
- Set Up your In-Store Merchant App/s
- (Optional) Integrate your chosen On-Demand Courier
⚠️ This requires the Android tablet device (per branch location) to be ready. Our app is compatible with touchscreen Android devices OS Version 5 and above.
On the designated Android device for your branch location, download the In-Store Merchant App on Google Play Store. You can download the app through this link.
Log into your Shopify Store and go to Apps > Restaurant Alert + Deliver > Locations.
Select the location you would like to link a device to.
You will be brought to the page with the location’s details. On the right hand side of the screen, you will see the Merchant App details.
Click Generate new URL if there is no URL already provided.
⚠️ This step requires that a location has already been added to the Restaurant Alert + Deliver app within your Shopify Store. If you haven’t done so yet, you can read the instructions here.
Under Merchant App, you will find the Install URL. You may click Show to see the URL or simply click the clipboard icon on the right to copy the URL to your clipboard. Send this URL to the Android device (via email or chat that can be opened on the Android device).
ℹ️ This Install URL needs to be opened on the Android device itself, as this will link the device to the designated location.
💡 Alternatively, if you have the device on your person, you may also click Show QR to link your device using a QR code instead. Clicking this will generate a QR code you can scan with your device using the In-Store Merchant App.
Open the Install URL on the Android device. This should instantly lead you to the In-Store Merchant App and prompt to link to branch. Tap Link Device to confirm.
💡 If you're linking through QR Code, open your In-Store Merchant App, tap Scan QR, scan the QR code, and tap Link Device in the confirmation window.
🏁 You’re done! 🏁
You’ll be able to check if your branch device was successfully linked to its designated branch location on the Shopify Settings. You may do so by logging into your Shopify Store and going to Apps > Restaurant Alert + Deliver > Locations, and select the location you would like to check. The App settings should be displayed instead of the Install URL, as seen below:
