Store Hours (or Opening Hours) can be set & aligned in Mobi2Go to the requirements of your business & can be updated at any time.
One scenario is if you have a public holiday coming up or if your delivery window has changed, you can jump straight into Mobi2Go & adjust your store's hours.
Store Hours are set at an individual store level, not Head Office level. For single-store businesses, you will have visibility of both Head Office & Store level operations.
Store Hours can be divided into 3 groups by the order type/method:
- Pick Up - the default method for online ordering
- Delivery - delivery needs to be enabled if you're using a 3rd party delivery service
- Eat (Dine) In - outlines the eat in opening hours, however table ordering is not yet supported
You could have (if you wanted) 3 different methods of dining & potentially have different opening hours for all 3. If that's how your business rolls, then we can accommodate those requirements.
If the boxes are not flagged, you will not be able to set times. By default, Delivery & Eat In are disabled.
Mobi2Go also has the ability to have split Opening Hours if you are open for lunch, close & then re-open for dinner service.
Store Hours Overview
- To access Store Hours, click Settings from the navigation pane
- In the Settings page, next to Opening Hours click Edit
- Welcome to the Store Hours page
- From the Store Hours page you will see the active days of trade & methods of ordering available. (Active days will be shown via the ticked check boxes next to the day of the week.)
Update Store Hours
To change the Store Hours for your business, identify the day of week or time that you would like to change.
- Update the value eg. change 9 to 10, AM to PM etc.
- Once the changes have been made, click Save to submit your changes
- If you do not click Save, your changes will be lost if you refresh or move off the page i.e. Go back
- After saving you will be presented with a success banner and a Summary of Hours pop-up, outlining your new Store Hours
These hours will also be visible on your website, so make sure they are correct!
🎪 Fun Fact: The icons (what looks like 2 pieces of paper) with Delivery, Pick Up, Pick Up & Delivery text when clicked, will allow you to copy the changes to hours from the corresponding column, to the column where you are clicking.
For Example: If you change the times for Pick Up & need to update Delivery times, click Pick Up (with the icons) & it will copy the changes from Pick Up to Delivery.
Accept Orders Up to Close
At the top of Store Hours you will notice an Accept orders up to closing option. This flag allows you to set some guidelines around how soon before closing time that you want to take orders.
- If you unflag (disabled) this option, the last expected time for an order will be when the store closes.
For example: If a store closes at 5pm, the last order can be expected at 5pm. If the Wait Time is set to 15min & the store, the order will need to be placed by 4:45pm at the latest.
- If this option is flagged (enabled) then the last expected time for an order will be when the store closes plus the wait time set.
For example: If a store closes at 5pm & there is a Wait Time of 15min, customers can order at 5pm and expect their order to be ready at 5:15pm.
To disable your store for an upcoming public holiday, un-tick the checkbox next to the day that you would like the store to be disabled for.
This should be done during the week before the date you would like to disable, to prevent possible scheduled orders that may be placed. Once the day has passed, ensure to re-enable the day.
Alternatively, you can now set holiday hours in advance. Check out our updated article on Holiday Hours here.
If you require split opening hours or have a store open past midnight, you will need to contact our Support team.
