Offer Online Food Orders, Limited Availability Meals and Curbside Pickup with PeopleVine

You have all the tools in front of you to provide a quick and efficient way to take orders, limit availability and offer curbside pickup.


Here's what you'll need in order to get staretd with online food ordering and curbside pickup:

  • Identify an abbreviated (or full) menu to accomodate your customers
    • If you go under Sell > Commerce > Sales Report, you can identify your most popular products
  • Plan some items with limited quantity available in order to ensure people order early (e.g. a popular dish, limited meal kits, a free bottle of wine, etc.)
    • People need motivation during these unique times, so keep it fresh, keep it exclusive and keep them interested
  • Determine if you're ordering delivery or curb side pickup or both.

Feel free to watch the video and see how each piece was setup.  And yep, there's a learning curve, even I ran into a few things, but sure enough we're looking into a more efficient process to enable these capabilities. In less than 30 minutes you can start offering food service with curb-side pickup.

Selling Food on PeopleVine

There are two ways you can go about selling food and taking orders:

  1. Setup an ecommerce store/category allowing you to list products for sale, capture variations (e.g. sides, mods, etc.) and provide a shopping cart experience.  In addition the ecommerce route allows you to offer delivery (as well as both offer pick-up)
  2. Leverage our events and ticketing engine to setup a limited quantity experience for each time you serve meals.


Setup an eCommerce Store

Your site has ecommerce built-in, simply go to Sell > Commerce > Setup New Product to add a new product for sale, then follow these steps:

  1. Set it as a physical product and then add at least the product title, attach a graphic and enter a price.  These are the minimal options to allow ordering, however we recommend adding inventory to control availability.
  2. If the product has variations, you can either 1) setup a parent/child product relation (if different pricing) or 2) simply add a drop down or text box attribute.
  3. In additon, you can set member only pricing by adding an additional pricing level and assigning it to specific membership tiers.

Setup a Curbside Pickup Form

You can quickly setup a form where people can notify you when they have arrived for their pickup.  This form can constitue things like:

  • What type of vehicle are you in?  
  • What color is the vehicle?
  • What area did you park?

As soon as someone completes the form, your staff will get an e-mail that someone arrived.
