The Curbside feature allows Merchants to capture the customer's information and notify them via text message that they have received their order and the time it would be ready for pickup. This article provides the step-by-step guide to enable the Curbside feature for a Merchant.


For Merchants to use the Curbside feature, they will need access to their Engage Business Dashboard. For more information, refer to the article on Providing Merchants with Access to the Business Dashboard.
