Managing Modifiers



Modifiers are assigned to a modifier group.  For example, the modifiers 'regular', half-n-half' and 'no-fat' would be assigned to the 'milk options' modifier group for a coffee product.  A modifier can be assigned to more than one modifier group.

Tip - You can import modifiers directly through the Menu Importer.

Creating New Modifiers



Display Name - This is the name for the modifier that displays in your Storefront to customers.

Internal Name - This is useful if you have multiple modifiers and want to assign more descriptive names to them for internal tracking in the menu editor.  The internal name is not seen by customers.

Price - The price of the modifier.


Creating New Modifiers - Modifier Type

Selecting modifier type will determine how the modifier acts in your Storefront.



Regular Option / Topping - This is the default setting for modifiers.

Size Option - This option is set if your modifier is a sizing option.  To learn more about setting up sizes click here.

Multiple Selection Option - This option allows a customer to select multiple quantities of the same modifier by showing a quantity selector for the modifier.

Half and Half Topping - (deprecated)



Creating New Modifiers - Advanced

The following advanced settings are available when creating a new modifier:



PLU - When integrating your Store with a point of sale system you will need to assign a PLU to each modifier.  The PLU needs to be the same as the PLU assigned to the corresponding modifier in your point of sale.  If you are not integrating with a point of sale then a PLU is not required.

Additional PLU Settings (Remove) - When integrating your Store with a point of sale system and utilising 'remove modifiers' you can assign the PLU here for the corresponding 'remove modifier'.  If a customer 'removes' the modifier from their order the remove PLU will be sent down instead of the modifier PLU.  The PLU needs to be the same as the PLU assigned to the corresponding 'remove modifier' in your point of sale.  If you are not integrating with a point of sale then a remove PLU is not required.

Additional PLU Settings (Left) - When integrating your Store with a point of sale system and utilising 'left modifiers' you can assign the PLU here for the corresponding 'left modifier'.  If a customer chooses the 'left' option only the left PLU will be sent down instead of the modifier PLU.  The PLU needs to be the same as the PLU assigned to the corresponding 'left modifier' in your point of sale.  If you are not integrating with a point of sale then a remove PLU is not required.

Additional PLU Settings (Right) - When integrating your Store with a point of sale system and utilising 'right modifiers' you can assign the PLU here for the corresponding 'right modifier'.  If a customer chooses the 'right' option only the left PLU will be sent down instead of the modifier PLU.  The PLU needs to be the same as the PLU assigned to the corresponding 'right modifier' in your point of sale.  If you are not integrating with a point of sale then a remove PLU is not required.

Override Product PLU - If set to '1' the modifier PLU will override the PLU assigned to the product when sending to your point of sale.  If you are not integrating with a point of sale then this option does not apply. 


Size Based Pricing - If your modifier pricing is dependant on the size selected you can define the price levels here.
