Unless you request that we disable it, once your POS connection is enabled, that means both our system and yours can communicate automatically.

Important: Total-basket discounts are compatible for all POS systems.

Currently, not all POS Systems are compatible with item-specific discounts, free item and Deliveroo Plus offers - please check with your POS provider to see if these discount types will be supported.

Troubleshooting tablet and printer errors

Why don't certain orders reach my POS System?

There are two possible error messages you will see on the tablet to help identify why your orders might be failing to reach your POS.

1. Error message: “Something went wrong - you need to manually enter this order into the POS”. Missing menu PLUs are the most common cause for this error.

Resolving this issue:

  • Enter order manually using your POS

  • Click ‘OK’ on the tablet

  • Check that all menu items have a PLU

  • If all items have the correct PLU assigned but you're still receiving this error, please contact integrations support by using ‘Help’ in Hub.

See How do I add PLUs or product IDs in Menu Manager? to learn more about how to view, edit and add menu item PLUs.

2. Error message: “Check that this order was sent to the POS - enter it manually if needed". Lost internet connection is the most common cause of this error.
