Hello!

Surely, Ecwid can be used for setting up an online restaurant. Ecwid sends out email notifications to store admin immediately when an order is placed (if the notifications are enabled in Ecwid control panel -> Settings -> Mail). You can enter multiple email addresses for order notifications, so the store admin can receive order notifications to more than one email addresses. Here you can find the detailed instruction how to do this: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...iple-addresses

Currently, most of the popular mailbox services like Google provide a solution of installing an app for iOS or Android, so that when a new mail arrives, you get the instant push notification about it. In this case all you need is to install the GMail app to your smartphone or tablet:
For Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.gm&hl=en
For iOS - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gmai...422689480?mt=8

Also, you can use any 3-d party service, which will send you a text message, when a new order confirmation email is received. I suggest considering IFTTT service for this: https://ifttt.com/recipes/109563-sen...-urgent-emails

By the way, if you are an iOS device owner, you can install our official application that allows to manage your orders from the smartphone. Just download it from AppStore (it can be found by name "Ecwid"), connect it to your Ecwid account and have the sales at your fingertips.

I hope this helps! But if there are any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Hi this will all be a bit confusing to me but I will give it a go... I purchased a plug in or a software called Take Out Geni that I would like to connect to my Web Builder Site..... So On my Take out menus and various postings located in the restaurant the customer will text the to the website takeout page to menu selections(food) pay then place order to restaruant. is that something that connect or ties to a portal and then Ecwid handles the money transaction?

Hello!

Sorry for such a long delay with the reply.

At first, let me explain a little about how Ecwid works in general and how you can use Ecwid for your restaurant business. Ecwid allows you to get a fully featured online store with products, categories, catalog, checkout pages, various payment options, etc. For your restaurant business you can add your menu to your Ecwid store. Split your menu into different categories and add your dishes to these categories. Here you can find the detailed info how to manage your products in Ecwid store: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...71309-products

Then, you can set up payment options and shipping methods in your store. Here is a list of all online payment methods working in Ecwid: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...canIuseinEcwid

Also, Ecwid allows setting up different shipping methods as well as various types of charges like per item/ per order / flat fee, etc. or the shipping rates services from major carrier companies, more details here: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...61340-shipping

Then your customers will be able to choose dishes in your online store, pay for them and choose the desired delivery method. When they make an order in your store, you will receive email notifications about it. You can enter multiple email addresses for order notifications, so the store admin could receive order notifications to more than one email addresses. Also, you can set up a 3-d party service, which will send you a text messages about new order emails, as I explained you in my previous message.

Please, see examples of online Food & Beverage Ecwid stores: http://www.ecwid.com/showcase/food

If you face any difficulties with setting up your Ecwid store, you can ask for advice here, we are glad to help you! Please, feel free to ask!
