How it works

YumIsland helps you build a website in minutes that so you can start accepting orders online on the very same day. Once you’ve set up all the necessary info, customers would be able to place orders on your website with the link we give you. You will be notified of new orders from a simple point-of-sales system that can be accessed from the business dashboard. To see what a finished website looks like, check out the Demo Brand.

Create a brand

If you have not registered an account, please do so now. Once you’re done, head over to the Business Dashboard which can be accessed from the dropdown menu at the top right corner of the page. You’ll be asked to important information such as the URL Name.

URL Name

The URL Name is very important because it will set your URL permanently e.g. yum.sg/restaurant_name. It cannot be changed once set. Please choose a name that best represent your brand. We reserve the right to remove the URL if it violates the rules.

Payment

YumIsland support 3 modes of payment that a customer is allowed to select when buying: cash, PayNow and credit card.

Cash payment will handled manually by you just as you would in person.

To enable PayNow you’ll need to enter your PayNow ID which could be your mobile number or business UEN. If you use the your UEN number, please ensure that it is registered with your bank. The customer will be prompted to make payment to your PayNow once the order is made. It will be your responsibility to ensure payment was made.

To enable credit card payment, you need to connect your Stripe account. Stripe is a leading online payment gateway similar to PayPal and is trusted by many companies such as Shopify and Grab. After clicking on the button, you will be guided to create your own Stripe account. All credit card payments by the customer will go directly to your Stripe account so you have full control over the funds. You can visit your Stripe Dashboard to view reports and manage your funds.

Payment Fees

Stripe charges a fee for every successful payment, and there will be an additional $0.01 fee charged by YumIsland to cover costs.

See how GST and price is calculated.

Delivery

Showing your delivery options is as simple as selecting the checkboxes for those that you provide. There are 2 important options to take note.

Self-Collect and In-House Delivery

Self-collect and in-house delivery are handled by YumIsland during the purchase flow. Whereas other delivery options are simply for customer information only.

Adding a price above 0 for a delivery option will incur the delivery cost to the customer when they choose that option. The customer will be required to enter the delivery address if they choose the in-house delivery option.

Create outlets

Head over to your outlet management from your dashboard to start adding outlets. Having outlets let the customer know where they can buy your products. Each online order will be sent to the outlet that the customer selected. If your outlet is not listed on Google Maps, you can either list your business on Google or choose a nearby landmark instead.

Create your menu

Managing your menu can be accessed from your dashboard. When creating a product, only the name and price are required. Other fields are optional but highly recommended as they help customer make better decisions and can make the product more enticing. Categories are used to separate products into logical groups to make it easier for customers to browse the menu. Once you’re done, you can arrange the menu in any order you like.

Next steps

Now you’re ready to share your website with the world. You’ll be given a short URL at yum.sg that you can find on your dashboard. Alternatively, you can use the generated QR Code which links back to your site. Moving on, let’s learn how to handle new orders.
