Displaying pricing on your Online Menu can be a simple matter, or a little more complex if you're using Required Mod sets for your pricing.

Let's take a look at the options for displaying pricing and the scenarios they would be used in.

Pricing is a setting on each menu section. In Setup > Online Menu Setup, select a section in the preview screen, and press the Change Pricing Display button.

Let's look at the pricing options.

Simple Pricing

This option is for straightforward items with one sales price. An example of this would be a Flat White for $4.50. You might have extras like Small and Large costing +/- 50c but you can cover this in one of the header or footer fields.

Mods Pricing

This pricing option allows you to add up to three prices for one item, using the first three prices in your first required mod group. Let's look at coffee again but use the Mods pricing showing the small/medium/large prices based on our mod set. Below we have set up our coffees for $4.50. There are three size options in the first required mod group - Size. Medium is the default mod and is set to $0.00 so it uses the Item price of $4.50. The Small mod removes 50c and Large adds 50c.

MODS pricing takes the first three mods in that first required mod group on your item, and applies them to the price of the base item to display separately on the menu.

You can also add a note about the price in the Section Description, Footer, or Item Short Description.

Default Mods Pricing

Selecting default mods pricing means that the price you want displayed is the sales price of the item plus the sum of the default required mods in the first three required mod groups. Up to three prices can be added to get the price.

This option is here to catch those items with more of a complex setup. Let's look at a couple of scenarios where this might be used.

Simple scenario

Let's say you have an item like Eggs on Toast. You offer a selection of breads with different costs and have them set up as default mods.

In this scenario, the cost of the eggs is $10, the default mod (sourdough) is $1, so the price on the SOGUI menu would show as $11. You could then add a note to the item or section that there are different bread choices available.

A more complex scenario

Another way you could use the Default mods pricing would be in a combo item. Let's say you had a chicken burger combo.

The price of the item is $15, which covers the burger, but the customers select from a small range of sides. In the case below, the Online Menu would show the item price as $20 as it takes the base price for the burger, then adds the price of the default mods - $4 for fries and $1 for the can of fizz.

Note: It will only add up to three default mod prices.

Again, you can add a note on the Item or section header/footer to help describe further options.
