Sweed Ordering FAQs

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 Sweed Active Orders E-Commerce fulfillment dashboard.
How does customer profile matching work in Sweed for Leafly orders?
Leafly will provide the following customer information: First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, Email Address, and (for delivery orders) Address.
Sweed uses customer email addresses to match to existing customer profiles. If a customer's email is not in the system, a new customer profile will be created. If the email address matches an existing customer profile, the order will be associated with that profile.
Will customer government ID images transfer to Sweed for delivery orders?
No. At this time, government ID images associated with delivery orders will not flow to Sweed.
Retailers can access and download government ID images via their Leafly Order Dashboard.
Does Sweed support a “hold queue”?
Yes. Items will be placed on hold as a "Reserved Item" while the order is active. They will be fully deducted from inventory once the order is complete.
If an order is canceled, reserved items will be released.
How can I cancel an order?
- At this time you need to perform all cancellations within Sweed.
