Square App - Update your Square App to the latest Version.

Square Menu - Ready your Square Menu to be set up like you would want the customer order from it ToGo. Specifically, modifiers that you want customers to be able to select need to be attached to items in Square. Hiding unwanted modifiers on ToGo can be done but adding any modifiers must be done on Square.

Images - If you want Images added to your ToGo menus first add them to the items in Square.

What is Integration?

Integration means that we pull your Square Menu into OrderCloud. When your customer orders from ToGo we push the customer order into your Square POS. Each item/modifier is sent from OrderCloud to the Square POS.

Can I manually add items to OrderCloud?

No – square uses a long alphanumeric PLU number that cannot be seen in your Square system/Dashboard. All items/modifiers have to be imported/synced into Order Cloud so the alphanumeric PLU can be input into OrderCloud


What if I do add an item or modifier to OrderCloud manually?

Any orders with those items will fail and a cancellation message will be sent to the Customer

How do I update my OrderCloud menu if I make adds/edits/remove on Square?

After the initial import if any changes are made on Square you will perform a Menu Synchronization on OrderCloud to pull new items, changes, etc from Square into OrderCloud.
