Part I: Enroll in Toast Partner Connect
In order for us to begin building your Toast integration, you must first enroll in Toast Partner Connect, Toast's integration management portal. This step is only necessary for restaurants that have not previously enrolled in Toast Partner Connect. If you are using Toast's API for any other partner integrations, you do not need to follow this step.
Toast has created a step-by-step guide for how to complete this process. Please note that you will need to wait for a response from Toast at two different stages of this process. The faster you initiate the process, the faster The Ordering.app will be able to begin building your actual integration.
Once Toast has completed your enrollment in Toast Partner Connect, you'll be able to add our integration.
Part II: Activating the Toast-Ordering.app Integration
You can do this directly from the Market Place from with in the Toast Admin, or by clicking "Add More Integrations" inside the "My Integrations" page.
On the Market Place page, navigate to the Online Ordering section. Find The Ordering.app tile and click "Add Now."
This will lead you to a page confirming that you would like to add The Ordering.app as an integration at your location. Click "Submit" to continue. You will continue to a screen confirming that the integration has been added successfully.
Clicking the "Back To My Integrations" button will now show The Ordering.app listed as one of your integrations. We will then be able to retrieve your Toast menu data to proceed with the onboarding.
