You can set a specific "zone" by selecting an area on Google Maps where you allow deliveries. You can assign a delivery schedule specific to that zone. Further more, you can create multiple zones, and apply different delivery schedules to each zone.

Step 1 - Create a Delivery Zone

  1. Go to the Menus Dashboard, then select "Delivery Schedules"

  2. Click the "Create a Delivery Zone" button

  3. Enter a delivery schedule name

  4. Enter how many days you will be accepting orders

Step 2 - Select a Delivery Coverage

  1. Click "Add Zone"

  2. Enter a zone name

  3. Select the "circle" or "shape" option to capture the area on Google Maps

Step 3 - Select Available Delivery Days

There are 2 options you can choose from:

  • Use location operating hours

  • Weekly delivery hours

Option 1: Use location operating hours

You can use the operating hours you've set from the account settings, click here for the tutorial.

Option 2: Weekly delivery hours

You can set a weekly recurring delivery schedule. Only days you select will be displayed as options when customers place an order from the website.

Step 4 - Select a Cut-Off Time to Place an Order

You can set the cut-off time to be the same day or up to 3 days lead time:

  • Same day (current day)

  • Day before

  • 2 days before

  • 3 days before

For example, if "Same day by 1 pm" is set as a cut-off time, if your available delivery schedule is set to say, "weekly, every Thursday," then the customer can place the order anytime from today until Thursday before 1 pm.

Let's do another example: "a Day before by 1 pm." If your available delivery schedule is set to "weekly, every Thursday," then the customer needs to place the order on or before Wednesday before 1 pm.

Step 5 - Select How You Will Manage Deliveries

You can choose from 2 options for delivery:

Option 1: Use In-house drivers

If you choose this option, follow the next steps:

  • Add minimum amount.

  • Add delivery fee.

  • Check the box if you want to offer free delivery above the minimum amount.

  • Add delivery lead time-- Select how much time you need to prepare an order.
