Frequently asked questions

What is the meaning of life? Where do babies come from? What's in your secret sauce?
Yes, those are all frequently asked questions but we won't answer them here.

How much does eHungry cost?

Silly rabbit, pricing is on our Pricing page.

How does the 30-day free trial work?

Try it out for 30 days and see how it works for your restaurant. If you cancel within 30 days of signing up you won't be charged a thing. If you cancel after 30 days, you'll just be charged for any orders after that date.

How does the per order fee work?

Let's say you had $1,000 in online orders in a month. We would charge your credit card on file $19 at the end of the month ($1000 x 1.9%). That's it! Pretty simple. Which is a lot less than many of our competitors who will charge much more for the same order.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract that locks me in for years?

No. eHungry is a pay-as-you-go service. There are no long term contracts of commitments on your part. You simply pay month-to-month. If you cancel, you'll be billed for the current month's usage, but you won't be billed again.

In what currency does eHungry charge its fees? (For restaurants outside of the US)

Our fees are charged in US dollars. So if your restaurant is outside of the United States, your actual % may be different due to the exchange rate. Please note: The exchange rate is handled at the time of billing by your credit card and your credit card may charge additional fees. We also don't include any applicable taxes in our prices so if your locality requires it, any taxes will need to be paid by you.

How does my restaurant receive orders?

You can receive orders via email, fax, Web, tablet, app, Webhooks or direct to printer. Or we can deliver them by hand, but we do require you pay for our first-class flight.

What's the printer option to receive orders?

There are two ways to receive orders by printer: The first option is if your printer supports Google Cloud Print. Many new printers do and it means we can send your order directly to your printer, with no computer needed or software to install. You can see a full list of supported printers here. The second option is can download and install our "eHungry Order Monitor" program on your computer (Windows Vista / 7 / 8). After installing it, you just set what printer(s) you want orders sent to (it works with inkjet, laser and thermal printers). Then the program communicates directly with our servers and anytime an order comes in, it will print automatically to your printer(s).

What if my fax machine / computer / thermal printer isn't where my staff would see orders come in?

No problem. We offer automated phone calls and/or SMS text message notifications to alert you of new orders.

How long does it take to get up & running?

Typically 3 - 5 business days although if it's urgent, just let us know. We've got a pretty fast turnaround as long as you get back to us quickly with the answers we need.

Can eHungry setup my menu for me?

Yes, definitely. Just email it over to us at:

What if I have multiple locations?

Not a problem at all -- we have tools for multiple locations and franchises that make it easy to setup and manage all of your stores. Just give us a shout and we'll be glad to assist.

Can I use my own Domain Name?

Yes. You could use a full domain like (if you plan on using your online ordering site as your main site) or a sub-domain like (if you already have a website and are linking to your online ordering).

Can I accept credit cards online?

Yes. You can either have your customers' credit card information sent to you so you process it in your POS/terminal or if you sign up with Authorize.Net, Vantiv (Mercury Payments),, Braintree or PayPal, you can enter your account info and accept credit cards in real-time. We recommend this second option since it's the fastest and most secure. But regardless of which way, customers are paying you directly, not eHungry.

Are credit card fees included in eHungry's pricing?

No. We don't require that you use a payment processor and each provider has their own set fees. So if you choose to process credit cards online in real-time then there would be additional fees from the processor you use.

Can I create coupons, specials or discounts for my customers?

Yes. You can create pretty much any type of coupon, special or discount you want -- $ off, % off, free items, etc. Plus you can add restrictions such as having to purchase certain items or meet certain requirements in order to use them.

Are there any limits? For example, menu items, customers, orders, etc.?

Nope! Add as many menu items as you want; accept as many orders as your restaurant can fill; make lots and lots of customers happy.

What countries does eHungry work in?

We currently offer service in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. We're looking to expand into more countries soon.

Why should we go with eHungry vs. one of the other guys?

Because of our good-looks, charming personality and of course, commitment to our restaurants. We've been doing this for over 10 years and are constantly working to make the best online ordering experience there is. Check out our comparison page for more details. We also pride ourselves on 99.9+% uptime and are always open to new ideas from our restaurants. Plus, did we mention, we're good-looking?

What if I want to give you guys a call?

We don't have a phone. Phones are so 1999. Email us at Trust us, we're fast at responding. If you really need somebody to call, we have a psychic hotline we highly recommend.

What if I have more questions or need support?
