The Correct Sorting of Products and Categories in a Pushed Menu

Why are the sorting order of products and categories relevant?

When a customer creates a menu in Deliverect, they can configure the exact sorting order they want their categories and products to show in. For example:

  • Best-selling or New products to be shown at the top of the menu.
  • Category called Starter to display at the top of the menu and Desserts at the bottom.

How does this order show in a published menu?

The order shown in the menu push JSON is simply the sorted order. (For more information, see a guide on how to configure a Menu Update Webhook URL)

In a published menu, the sort order will display like in the example below:

  1. Show Side Salad at the top of the menu, followed by Chicken Satay.
"products": {
"5f8**********d9a": {
"name": "Side Salad",
"description": "Lettuce, tomatoes....
"subProductSortOrder": []
},
"5f8967ac78b009aea9194d3f": 
{
"name": "Chicken Satay",
"description": "Satay dish.....
  1. Show Chicken Satay at top of the menu, followed by Side Salad.
"products": {
"5f8**********d9a": {
"name": "Chicken Satay",
"description": "Satay dish.....
"subProductSortOrder": []
},
"5f8967ac78b009aea9194d9a": 
{
"name": "Side Salad",
"description": "Lettuce, tomatoes....
