Variant Options for Delivery Services
Hi, I recently setup the online ordering integration with UberEATS and DoorDash. I noticed that item variants are displayed differently than I expect. For example, I have a sandwich that has variant for size (half, whole). When this item is displayed on the ordering services, it shows up as two items like this: "Item name - variant". I think it'd make more sense for the item to be displayed only once and the variant as a sub selection.
I know I could add it as a modifier instead of variant, but this won't work for me because the item modifiers are priced based off the variant chosen. For example, I have a sandwich with two variants (half, whole). I then have two modifiers for selecting meat (Meat Selection - Whole, Meat Selection - Half) which are added to their respective variant. On those modifiers, if you select a premium meat it's $0.60 for half variant and $1.80 for whole variant. Therefore, I have to keep the variants.
The big issue with displaying variants as items is:
1. It confuses customer who are navigating the menu.
2. My online menu grows at a rate of 2n since every menu item has 2 variants.
