Getting Started


  1. Buy an iPad, they’re awesome. You know you want one!
    If you buy from the Apple Store, remember they offer a 14 day return policy - full refund, no questions asked. This is a great way to try out the service with minimal risk.

  2. Download the Tap2Order iPad app from the App Store. You'll be prompted to create a new account and enter your company details as part of the first-run setup.

  3. You’re now online! Send through an order from a smartphone and follow the onscreen instructions to see how the system works. If you don’t have a smartphone handy, Tap2Order includes a useful phone simulator within the app for you to test out functionality.

  4. Tap2Order sets you up with a default theme and menu, you'll want to customise that to your logo, colours & menu. Sign in to the admin section of the app and change your branding. You can also update your store opening hours, add a mobile number for the store and Twitter/Facebook links where appropriate for customers.

  5. Set up in store - you'll need to run the cable to a power outlet or USB port and set the iPad to never go to sleep. If you need a stand or mounting bracket, we recommend the Wallee or the Padloc.

  6. Get the word out so that customers know about your new app! Point of sale collateral and recommendations from staff work best, but you should also add a link on your website and mention it in customer communications (newsletter, twitter, facebook etc).
