For our discount use the code: WPBVIP
For this guide we will be using WPFomrs Pro, once you've installed and set up the plugin we will want to go into WPForms, Addons and install the Form Templates Pack Addon as well as any payments you would like to accept. For Credit Cards you would use stripe or there is a Paypal option for those looking to accept PayPal.
Now we can go to WPForms, Add New and scroll down to search for and select the Takeout Order form. This form will auto-populate a form with the fields you would normally need for that type of form. The base form starts out as a Pizza form to give examples but you can change to fit your needs.
Add any fields you feel would fit your needs then in the settings, you can edit the notification settings to email to the address you would like orders sent to for your site and change the subject line. You can then create a new notification so your customers receive an email letting them know you received their order. You can also add to the confirmations, a confirmation page that the order has been sent in so users don't have to wait for the email to know that they have submitted an order.
We can then set up the payment option of our choice in the payment section. Ensure once you are ready to start selling that the options are set to production for you to receive a payment. Now add from the Payment Fields section a multiple item selector and it will add connections for your payments and for you to choose the costs of each selection. This will give you the option to add a total and a payment option below for you to start accepting orders.
To add your form to your site, create a new page or post, add the WPForms block, and select the title of the form you have just created. Once you publish it, the page will be live on your site and you can start receiving orders. If you want to help ensure the emails are delivered to you, you can set up SMTP by following our guide here:

Is there a phone text message integrated? SMS message order receiving and confirmation notifications will be better than email notifications.
I had no idea wpforms could do this. I have a few restaurant websites that I manage and always assumed that the day I had to do this then I would have to learn / dive into woo-commerce.
I thought the same. I thought they will go with Woo commerce because most of the customers are regulars and you don’t want them to fill the same info all the time. This solution might be better for one time purchase
