Setting Up Table Service on Lightspeed Ordering

Setting Up Table Service Has Never Been So Easy!

With Lightspeed Ordering, you can set up table service. This is a great way to streamline service within your venue, allowing customers to view, browse and pay for their orders without having to pick up physical menus, wait in line or flag down employees. 

In this guide, you'll learn how to do this. 



What's In This Guide?


Setting Up Table Service Orders

  1. Log into Lightspeed Ordering's Venue Manager.
  2. Go to Order Settings.
  3. Switch on 'Table Service Orders'.


The next step is to generate table service URLs. 


Building Table Service URLs

  1. Go to the sidebar on Lightspeed Ordering Venue Manager and grab your menu's URL. It should look like this.

  2. Add the following parameter to the end of the URL:?order_type=deliver_table

The most efficient deployment of your table service URL is to convert it into a QR Code. Customers can scan it on their phone's camera and open it. Voila!


Setting Up QR Codes for Table Orders

Let customers make orders at the table by setting up QR codes. 

To do this, please complete the following steps:

  1. Login to Lightspeed Ordering's Venue Manager.

  2. Click "Get Menu QR Code" on the left-hand panel.                                                                                    

  3. It should look like this:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Screen_Shot_2020-10-23_at_3.22.20_pm.png                                                                                                
  4. Download your QR code and test it on your phone.
  5. Print your code. Paste it on your tables, windows and doors. 


Setting Up Table Number URLs

Additionally, you can set up individual URLs for each table. The extension for this is &table_number= followed by a number up to three digits long. An example is

You can then use each URL to generate a QR Code for each table.
