How to Set Up and Apply the Modifiers

The modifier is a set of options that can be applied to the items. They help to sell the same item with different options, such as fillings or toppings. With proper application, modifiers will simplify and accelerate the sales process, as well as provide information about which options are most often selected by clients.

Creation and set-up of modifier

In the Back Office at ‘Items’ menu, click on ‘Modifiers’.
