How to Set up and Sell Using a Third Party Delivery Service - Basic

This is a guide on how to set up third party delivery services, such as, Uber Eats, Deliveroo, EASI, Menulog, DoorDash and alike using the basic setup method. There is no direct integration between Shopfront and these services at this point in time.

The basic method shows you how to create a new payment method to separate regular sales from delivery service sales. This method assumes you will be either processing the sale at the regular everyday price or manually overriding the price before processing the sale.
