Setting a delivery minimum

A delivery minimum can be set on the Online ordering page in the Toast administration back-end. Choose Takeout & delivery > Availability > Online ordering to open the Online ordering page. Rules can be used to configure which orders require manual approval and which orders will be rejected based on certain criteria, such as a delivery minimum.
