How to create categories in my catalog?
It's time to show off: Let's load your Digital Menu in Waitry! 😄 We'll tell you how to do this setup and create the products you'll have for sale:
The Digital Menu in Waitry is organized in 3 levels that will allow your customers to quickly find what they want:
Subcategories, within each category
Products, within each sub-category
For example, if your venue sells pizzas 🍕 a possible organization could be as follows:
Subcategories: VEGAN PIZZAS.
Products: VEGAN PIZZA WITH BASIL
Within each of the levels, you could indicate:
Title: main name of the category, subcategory, product, etc.
Description: information about the content of the category, subcategory or product.
Language: you will be able to add translations for foreign customers
Position: the display order within the category, subcategory or product
IMPORTANT: If you have Waitry integrated with your management system, the titles and products you modify will not be overwritten. This way you will be able to keep the names you use there and in Waitry use others that facilitate the sale and choice of your customers.
Let's see in detail how to do the manual upload of your Menu. Note, that you also have the possibility to do this through a file. If you want more information on how to do it, you can click here
