Test Restaurant Page

This is not a real restaur­ant.

This is a test page for a cata­log add-on we're adding to pages, to see how it responds to differ­ent types of items. Here we're using food.

The cata­log lets you sell a few simple items, which you can add, change and categor­ise as you like. Each item can have an image, descrip­tion, price, even a varia­tion like size or colour.

The cata­log allows you to collect orders for items you have for sale, but requires you organ­ise paym­ent and deliv­ery yourself. It's not a full ecommerce system.

The cata­log appears near the bottom of the page, under the photo gall­ery and above the noticeboard if you have one.

We've tried to keep a balance between simplic­ity and func­tion so you can manage it yourself. Things like organ­ising categor­ies and resi­zing im­ages are done auto­mat­ic­ally for you.

How It Works

The cata­log can hold up to 50 items in total. These are list­ed alpha­betic­ally as a scroll­ing list of pro­duct cards.

You can group items together into categor­ies, simply by giving them categ­ory names. All items with the same categ­ory name appear together. Categor­ies are auto­mat­ic­ally creat­ed or remov­ed as requir­ed.

Prod­ucts are always visible, with prices and options shown, but Visitors must be signed-in to place an order.

The visitor selects an item that inter­ests them, adjusts the quant­ity and selects a varia­tion if there are any. Then they press Add to Cart.

They can freely choose more items, of differ­ent variat­ions of the same item.

They com­plete the order by tapp­ing 'Send Order'.

A shop­ping cart shows their order, with a simple calcula­tion of pric­ing. Their order is sent to the page owner for pro­ces­sing, with a mess­age of success, or if there was a pro­blem.

A few seconds later you rece­ive an email with the customer's con­tact details and their choices. You will need to con­tact the custo­mer to arrange paym­ent and deliv­ery.

Pros:

  • It's free.
  • It stores up to 50 items.
  • Items can be added and chang­ed at will.
  • Im­ages are auto­mat­ic­ally resiz­ed for you.
  • Each item has a name, descrip­tion, price, and pop up banner.
  • You can make copies of items to add stock quickly.
  • You can have one varia­tion per item, such as colour.
  • Items are sort­ed alpha­betic­ally for you.
  • Items can be group­ed into categor­ies.
  • Categor­ies are creat­ed auto­mat­ic­ally for you.
  • Cart will show qty x price and totals.
  • You can spec­ify roughly where you deliver to: Local Only, Region­al, Australia Wide or Inter­na­tion­al.
  • Freight can be ignor­ed, set to 'ask', a fixed rate, or Free if over a certain amount.
  • An appropri­ate freight mess­age and charge will be shown in the cart.
  • It's fast. No forms to fill out.

Cons:

  • There is only 1 type of varia­tion per item. Eg Size or Colour, but not both.
  • Categ­ory names must be typed for each item that uses them.
  • Only one price per item. Cart cannot do com­plex math, dis­counts etc.
  • There is no stock con­trol, but you can hide out of stock items.
  • No paym­ent facil­ity is pro­vid­ed. You will need to handle this.
  • You'll get an email with the order details and have to con­tact the custo­mer to arrange paym­ent and deliv­ery.
  • Visitor must be signed-in to order.

Despite limitat­ions, this is still useful if you have few items to sell, the items are un­ique, or you don't need stock con­trol, or where you deliber­ately want to talk to the custo­mer further.
