Delivery methods are present for any business type. Upon specifying a delivery method, it will be printed in the final bill in large font.
In the case of a restaurant, the selected delivery method will be printed in KOT/BOT in large font as well. User can specify delivery method in the order details popup which appear in saving an order. This is for the user to specify delivery method in order saving so that it would be communicated to kitchen/bar staff in KOT/BOT, for them to choose appropriate packaging if required.
There are 2 pre-defined delivery methods in the system and the user can define any number of custom delivery methods.

Pre-defined Delivery Methods
There are 2 pre-defined delivery methods.
No delivery: For a restaurant business, this is equivalent to dine-in. So, service charge will be charged unless otherwise configured or specified differently. Default selection in delivery method selection dropdown. Not printed in KOT/BOTs or the final bill. Can't be switched off.
Takeaway: In the case of a restaurant, service charge will be automatically waived off for this delivery method unless otherwise configured or specified differently. Can be switched on/off from,
Back-office -> settings -> general -> takeaway supported
For a retail business, both these delivery methods mean the same.
Custom Delivery Methods
Custom delivery methods can be specified in the system as a comma separated list of names.
Back-office -> settings -> general -> delivery options
In the case of a restaurant, service charge will be automatically waived off once custom delivery method is chosen.
