Here at Leafly, we’re constantly improving our tools to bring you and your customers the best e-commerce experiences. To make sure we continue to provide our retail partners with top-notch support, we’ll be migrating all Leafly Biz profiles to our new menu solutions on June 30th. After this date, you will no longer have access to the old Menu Manager or Embedded Menu code.
For clients who haven’t yet opted into the new menu tools, we want to make your transition as smooth and seamless as possible. In this guide, you’ll find instructions and links to walk you through the process and familiarize yourself with the new experience. We recommend switching to the new Menu Manager and Embedded Menu before the end of the month to avoid potential disruptions.
If you need extra training at any point, we’re here to help!
Simply get in touch with your CSM or submit a support request here.
1. How to Upgrade to the New Embedded Menu - please follow the instructions in this help doc
2. How to Upgrade to the New Menu Manager
- Log in to Leafly Biz
- Go to your Menu Manager
- Click ‘Upgrade this store to new menu manager'
Please note: if you are enabled for online ordering on your Leafly menus, after your menu migration any “in-store only” items will be set to ‘“inactive” and removed from view on your customer-facing menu. See "active/inactive" status updates below for more details.
What’s new for POS connected Leafly retailers?
You can now have separate medical and recreational menus under a single listing. This cuts down on work managing multiple listings and helps streamline the ordering flow for customers.
Tax at Checkout
Gone are the days when customers would see one price in their Leafly checkout and a different price when paying at your store. By showing an accurate total at checkout, you can improve pricing transparency and trust in your business.
You now have the ability to overlay eCommerce data on top of your inventory after it has been pulled in from your POS. This is especially helpful if your POS system doesn’t support eCommerce-centric product data like product description, strain information, or product photography. Additionally, Leafly currently attempts to automatically link your products to known Brands and Strains in our database - you will now have the ability to override automatic strain and brand linking in that case that we got it wrong.
New ‘Active’ / ‘Inactive’ Status
We have simplified menu item status by consolidating “Published/Unpublished” and “Available for Pick-up/Not Available for Pick-up” statuses into a single set of statuses - “Active” and “Inactive”. In addition, you now have the ability to override active/inactive status on inventory flowing in from the Point of Sale system - that means you can set menu items from your POS to “inactive” if you don’t want them visible in online menus.
Set Inventory Threshold Rules
We’ve extended Inventory availability threshold rules extended to all Point of Sale systems - you will now be able to set inventory count thresholds to automatically hide items on your menu if the Point of Sale systems sends Leafly inventory counts. Additionally, we have added the capability to specify inventory availability threshold rules at the category level (e.g. exclude Flower products from the menu if they fall below X inventory count threshold)
What’s new for Leafly retailers that manually manage their menu?
Printed menus are making a comeback with more neutral styling, the ability to exclude categories, and the addition of potency data. Printed menus can be used as a safe and clean handout to customers or as a tool to quickly audit online availability vs. what’s physically in-stock at the store level.
Package Sizes Added
We’ve added all commonly sold package sizes across the markets that Leafly has a presence in to ensure shoppers know exactly how much product they will be purchasing before they arrive at the store. (This includes commonly sold package sizes in the Ohio market.)
Link Menu items to Leafly Strain Pages
You can now link products to Leafly’s Strain database using the aliases of the strain name that is popular in your particular market or region (think Gorilla Glue now being able to be linked to the ever-popular GG4) Linking your products to our strain database ensures your inventory is discoverable in Leafly’s most popular top of funnel shopper destination - the Leafly Strain page.
Improved Menu Item Sorting and Filtering
You can now sort by product name, brand name, strain name, category, and menu item status. You can also more easily filter and find items on your menu that are missing data such as product description, potency information, and strain data.
