An Order Guide serves as a "favourites list” of items for each supplier.

- These are found from your Order Desk by clicking 'Order Guide' or '+Create New Order Guide' under each supplier.

You can customize, categorize and organize products yourself by creating multiple Order Guides suited to your location's needs.

- For example, under the singular Dry Goods supplier, create separate guides based on product uses: "Front of House", "Back of House", "Canned Drinks", "Cleaners".

4. All About: Supplier Minimum Order Amounts:

Each supplier has a minimum order amount, which must first be met in order to submit an order. The dollar value of your order must total at least this outlined supplier minimum, otherwise you will not be able to checkout your cart. 

 

- Minimum order amounts vary based on supplier.

 

Once you have added an item to your cart, the supplier's minimum will always be displayed at the top of your cart.

 

- If you add items from multiple suppliers, separate minimum order amounts will be displayed and must therefore be met in order to checkout your cart.

5. All About: Supplier Cut-Off Times

A 'Cut-Off Time' is the latest possible time a Supplier will accept an order for next-day delivery.

- Suppliers have cut-off times to ensure they have enough time to pick requested items for your order, and prepare them for the day of your delivery.

Once you reach the Checkout page when placing an order, you're able to view which dates are available for delivery. Cut-off times vary based on Supplier and location, with unavailable delivery days displayed as 'greyed-out' & unavailable.

*Please note: Orders submitted within 30-minutes of the Supplier's outlined cutoff time will be automatically submitted with no review period. Please ensure orders placed near this cutoff time are completely correct, as no changes will be able to be made.

- Orders are not allowed to be pushed for next-day delivery after a Supplier's outlined cut-off time.


If ever you cannot find the desired item or unit size you are looking for, or require additional assistance surrounding a supplier’s minimum order amount or cut-off time, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team via web [https://chefhero.com], email [support@chefhero.com], phone [647-930-0210], or in-app chat.
