Once your feed groups are all configured:

  • Assign the Leafly Category applicable to each group of products.
  • If no category is specified, you can still configure this in your Leafly Integration Settings. Note: be aware that modifying any existing menu feeds beyond the leafly category can result in undesired behavior of your Enlighten TV Menus.

Under Integration Settings, add a new integration: Leafly Menu Push.

Once you have entered the API Key you have generated from the Leafly Setup Steps:

  • Choose the menu feed you wish to power your Leafly Menus
  • Select Verify
  • Once the verification succeeds, you can save.




Integration Configuration and Settings

Once you have successfully synced your Enlighten POS menu with Leafly, you can configure the integration and override menu data in Leafly Biz.

These changes will persist in your Leafly menu unless you disconnect and reconnect your POS and resync your POS menu data.

With Enlighten POS, you have the following options: 


Default Item Status

Automatically set new and restocked items to either active or inactive by default. Items automatically set to an inactive status must be manually set to active before being visible on online menus.

  • Items set to “Active”: these items will show up on all online menus and be set to “Available for Pick-Up/Delivery” if your store participates in any of Leafly’s order ahead programs.
  • Items set to “Inactive”: these items will be hidden from all online menus. They will no longer be “Available for Pick-Up/Delivery” if your store participates in any of Leafly’s order ahead programs.



Category Mapping

We currently support the following categories → Accessory, Seeds, Clone, Flower, Edible, PreRoll, Concentrate, Cartridge, Topical, and Other.

If your POS assigned category does not align with a predefined Leafly category, it will be assigned a category of Other by default. You can remap your POS Category to the Leafly category. 




Inventory Availability Rules

On the POS Settings page, you can set inventory thresholds at both the Global and Category levels. If a threshold is defined, items with inventory counts under the thresholds set will be automatically hidden from your online menus. By default, the threshold is set to 1.

How often does Enlighten POS sync with Leafly?

  • You can also manually sync changes to Leafly.

Can I manually update fields on Leafly Biz that are missing? 

Do products on the menu have sales tax associated? 

  • If you have assigned the desired tax rates to the menu feed in your Enlighten POS, your menu in Leafly will be inclusive of desired taxes.

  • This setting is available in your POS in “Menu Feeds > Tax Settings > Inclusive Tax Calculation” where you can assign the desired tax rates to the feed group. 

  • Clients can also use our tax feature in the Menu Manager Settings Biz to set sales and excise taxes to apply in checkout. To learn more about setting these options, please check out this Help Desk article: Setting up Tax Estimates for your Leafly Menu

Are Dual Menus supported with Enlighten POS? 

  • No, dual menus are not supported with this integration.

Why is Leafly showing something different for Brand or Strain information than what I have in my POS?

  • After Leafly receives a menu payload, we will try to match strain and brand information to existing entries in Leafly's database to cross-link and provide greater visibility for menu items across the platform.

  • Sometimes particular Strains or Brands do not exist yet in Leafly's database. In that case, we are trying to smart-match to the closest available entry. This can result in incorrect links.

  • You have the ability to change or remove incorrect links by editing those fields within your Menu Manager.

Can I make changes to item data on Leafly while my POS integration is active?

  • Yes, with some limitations.
  • You are able to override every menu item field except for the price point. This allows you to update Strain or Brand links or supplement other information like cannabinoid data, photos, or description. Leafly defers to your POS system as the source of truth for item pricing.
  • These manual overrides will persist on items you edit until they go out of stock and fall off your menu entirely.
