After sign-up, two links will be provided to the business. One is the merchant portal link which will be used to receive notifications and to respond to customers. The other is the customer link which should be included with the order confirmation. Via the link, the customer will alert the business of arrival for pickup.
The portal could be used on any device that has browser capabilities. Whether the business has a tablet or uses a computer device for its POS System, the link can be accessed on either of those devices.
In that case, the merchant will have to purchase a tablet to operate the portal.
