Automatic order printing

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to find out if there is an option to allow automatic printing of orders as they come in. I'm working with a cafe and due to current covid restrictions in the UK they're only able to offer takeaway or delivery.  They would like to have the capacity to have orders printed as they are purchased through the online store so they can instantly start prepping them for delivery or collection without having to check the website constantly. Has anyone dealt with anything like this before? It's a first for me so still trying to figure out if it's even possible. Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks

This is available on other platforms, but isn't possible that Squarespace can do on its own. It requires a third party solution that pulls the orders from the API and prints them. It's very specific and because Squarespace wasn't built for this market, it will most likely need to be purpose built. I recommend that you use another platform for the cafe orders, and then link to this from Squarespace.
