How to make your school canteen contactless, remove the need for cash and paper bags brought from home

Are you looking to be able to be able to offer online ordering for your canteen, but don’t want the hassle of managing a website, offering technical support, or the need for specialized equipment?  eCanteen is an easy, practical solution for school canteens, taking the hassle out of online ordering, and offering a canteen a variety of management tools which can help streamline the daily running of a school canteen.

eCanteen offers online payment processing through a specifically designed system for school canteens. We take care of the technical side of running an online ordering system, offering a support helpdesk, and processing the daily order payments on your behalf. Money from your canteen sales are transferred to a nominated bank account weekly. 

To run eCanteen there is no need to purchase any specialized software, servers or equipment.  The only equipment you require is a computer that can access our website and printer of your choice.

Using eCanteen is at no cost to the canteen provider.  There is no subscription fee, or lock in contracts. Unlike other systems, there is no requirement for parents to pay large sums of money up front to be able to place an order. The cost for the system is passed onto parents through a small processing fee that is applied when placing an order.  The fee is 10% of total purchase plus a 30 cent transaction fee (this transaction fee goes directly to PayPal).

As a canteen manager you would be provided with canteen management interface on eCanteen which provides you with tools that allow you to view and print your canteens orders, manage and edit your menu, view a financial overview of your schools orders, and management of school closure dates. Parents are able to sign their students up themselves, meaning no extra work for you in setting up student profiles.

For more information, or if you would like a demonstration of our system please contact our support team on 0407 443 534.

Kind Regards,
