POSaBit Ordering FAQs

Do I need to enable my POS menu sync from POSaBit before enabling the Order integration?
  • Yes. At this time, you must have the Menu integration enabled and actively syncing before enabling the Order integration.
  • You can find instructions to enable the Menu integration sync in this Help Desk guide: POSaBit Menu Integration Guide
Do I need to be a Pickup partner + Leafly customer in order to activate the POSaBit Order settings?
  • Yes. At this time, you must have both Leafly Pickup or Delivery and a current subscription to our advertising services activated in order to use the POSaBit Order Integration settings.
  • To learn how to enable online ordering, please take a look at this article: Adding Leafly online ordering to your location
Do customers still receive notifications when order status changes?
  • Yes. Customers will receive notifications via email and SMS. Additionally, if they have enabled in-app messaging, they will receive push notifications with order status updates.
Once Order Integration is enabled, will the Leafly Order Dashboard be disabled?
  • Yes. Once the Order Integration is enabled the Leafly Order Dashboard will be read-only. The dashboard will update appropriately but will not be actionable.
  • All order actions must be performed within your POSaBit fulfillment dashboard. 

Does POSaBit support a “hold queue”?

  • No. Menu items are removed from inventory when the order transaction is completed.

What are the potential pitfalls to managing orders solely in POSaBit POS?

  • Currently, Retailers will not be able to substitute menu items for customers or be able to distinguish first time customers until the customer is in-store.

How can I cancel an order?

  • At this time you need to perform all cancellations within the POS.
  • In addition, you cannot provide a reason for cancellation and these do not carry through from POSaBit to Leafly. 

Will my Leafly Deal pricing sync to my POS via the order integration?

  • No. At this time, you will need to replicate the deal in your POS and apply it to any applicable items in Leafly-sourced orders once you begin filling them in your POS system.
