Pinpointing some locations is difficult! For example, my place. I can never pinpoint my location to any restaurant or online service. I recently took this research proposal help UK-based website, and I asked them to deliver it to me instead of an email or pdf. It seemed right until I had to tell them my exact location. I could not guide them properly because google map doesn’t have my location. I get so pissed sometimes. I have to call every delivery man and guide them from scratch, every time!!!!
Pinpointing Customer Addresses for Online Ordering in Wix Restaurants
What is address pinpointing?
When a customer orders delivery, we must locate their exact address to make sure it is covered by one of your delivery areas. Pinpointing requires your customers to enter a specific address that Google Maps recognizes.
When does pinpointing fail?
Unfortunately, some addresses are hard to pinpoint, and their location can only be approximated. This can happen for any of the following reasons:
A customer enters an incomplete address, e.g. a street address without a house number.
A customer has a non-standard address not recognized by Google Maps.
A customer requests delivery to a hotel or business and does not know the exact address.
What does my customer see if pinpointing fails?
If pinpointing is enabled and we can't locate an address on the map, your customer is asked to enter a different address.
Should I enable or disable pinpointing?
If you deliver mostly to areas with good map coverage, we advise you to leave pinpointing enabled. If you delivery to remote areas which are not fully covered by our map service providers, it is best to disable pinpointing to allow customers to enter approximate addresses.
To allow customers to enter an approximate address:
Click the Settings tab.
Click the Online Ordering tab.
Click the Pinpointing Addresses toggle.
Enabled: Customers who enter an approximate address are prompted to enter an exact address
Disabled: Customers will be allowed to enter an approximate address
During checkout, customers can add delivery instructions whether pinpointing is enabled or not.
