Leafly Configuration (post POS sync)
Once you have successfully synced your BLAZE 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 then reconnect your POS and resync your POS menu data. This section will walk you through the configuration available in Leafly Biz today.
Default Item Status
On the POS Settings page, automatically set new and restocked items to either active or inactive by default. Items automatically set to an inactive status will need to manually be set to active before being visible on online menus.
Items set to “Active” 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” will be hidden from all online menus and will no longer be “Available for Pick-Up/Delivery” if your store participates in any of Leafly’s order ahead programs.
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 (one).
Inventory Exclusion Rules
On the POS Settings page, you can permanently exclude inventory from appearing on your online menus. You can set exclusions by keywords and categories.
Room Exclusion Rules
On the POS Settings page, you can exclude inventory that resides within a POS “ROOM” that you do not wish to be shown on your online menu.

FAQs (please review prior to menu sync)
If I have an existing menu in Leafly, do I need to save it prior to syncing my POS menu?
No. Leafly will automatically save a copy of the menu that you maintained before connecting your POS system. If you encounter any issues with the data that is pulled in from your POS, you can quickly revert back by selecting “Disconnect and restore pre-POS connected menu data” when disconnecting the POS and reverting the menu back to its original state. To learn how to disconnect your point of sale, we advise following the instructions in this article: How do I disconnect my point of sale?
What is the SLA on receiving the BLAZE API credentials once requested?
You can generate and access your BLAZE credentials in the backend of BLAZE RETAIL. To learn how to generate and access your BLAZE API credentials in BLAZE RETAIL, we advise following the instructions found in this article under “BLAZE Developer Key” or by following the directions laid out in BLAZE’s helpful article here.
Once I make a change in my POS, how soon will I see the changes on Leafly's menu?
Changes made in BLAZE will automatically sync to Leafly’s menu. Please allow up to 10 minutes for the change to appear on the customer-facing menu.
Why are some products that should appear in a specific category falling into the "Other" category?
Leafly currently supports Accessory, Seeds, Clone, Flower, Edible, PreRoll, Concentrate, Cartridge, Topical, 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 categories in Leafly Biz. You can find the instructions to remap under Leafly Configuration > Category Mapping in this article.
Can I manually update fields on Leafly Biz that are missing?
You will be able to manually update any field except for pricing and your product sizes (variants). To learn how to manually edit POS data, please check out this Help Desk article: What data can I manually edit on Leafly if I am syncing with a point of sale?
How do I get cannabinoid percentages to display for menu items?
Within BLAZE product info, there are two places where you can record cannabinoid data: Potency (mg) and Concentration (%). In order to display cannabinoid Concentration values as % on your Leafly menu, you must adjust the Show Potency on Web setting to No. This will cause the default cannabinoid values to pull from the Concentration section of product info rather than the Potency section.
If Show Potency on Web is set to Yes, then cannabinoids will be pulled from the Potency section and display in mg for those items.
Do products on the menu have sales tax associated?
Currently sales tax is not displayed in the Leafly menu. The taxes you have configured in your Leafly menu tax settings will be presented in the shopping cart and checkout on Leafly.com.
Displaying sales tax estimates directly from BLAZE is on the roadmap.
Is the "ice cream truck" delivery model supported?
Not fully. While you are able to designate which rooms/inventories/kits display on your menus or use terminal IDs to select a specific inventory for a specific menu, you will still have multiple Leafly profiles to manage.
Can I deactivate the menu sync?
Yes, you can disconnect your POS in Leafly Biz. To learn how to disconnect your point of sale, we advise following the instructions in this article: How do I disconnect my point of sale?
