Create a Meal Deal
Updated over a week ago

Meal deals are a combination of products with a fixed price.

For example, you could create a meal deal that contains a burger, drink, and dessert:

🍔 Choose your burger (meal deal section)

  • Cheeseburger (product)

  • Fishburger (product)

  • Chickenburger (product)

🥤 Choose your drink (meal deal section)

  • Cola (product)

  • Orange juice (product)

  • Water (product)

🍨 Choose your dessert (meal deal section)

  • Ice cream (product)

  • Cheesecake (product)

  • Tiramisu (product)

This article is only relevant if you do not have a POS integration. If you do have a POS, you can create them on that platform and then sync them to Deliverect.
