The support agent can be contacted via mail or phone.

Please activate the POS integration “POS API” for the restaurant [restaurant name] with the customer number [customer number] to MERGEPORT (Integration name: “Mergeport”).

Activation via MERGEPORT: form (may take longer)

Legacy API

“POS API” is the main interface. It supports all types of delivery methods and is recommended by Lieferando. . The “External Orders API” is the deprecated interface. Restaurants that use Lieferando’s delivery fleet “Scoober” are not supported by this integration. In the legacy API, you can choose between primary or secondary notification method (up to 4 available).

    1. If the primary method is selected, the T-Connect tablet will be deactivated.
      1. Accepting orders (acceptedByPOS) must be done through the cash register or Lieferando’s web interface Rejecting orders (rejectedByPOS) is not possible.
      2. Lieferando’s web interface can still be used for order overview.
    2. If the secondary method is selected, the T-Connect tablet can still be used (but it is not mandatory).
      1. In this case, it must be noted that confirmation via Lieferando’s portals should only be done after the order has been received in the point of sale (POS). Otherwise, the POS will not be notified.

We recommend selecting the secondary notification method. It is important to note that the T-Connect tablet should not be used further. The notification through the interface may take up to 2 minutes. During this time, the order confirmation should not be made via the T-Connect tablet. We recommend turning off the tablet after the migration period. It can still be used in case of emergency.

Order Flows

For Scooter partners, two different flows can be set. Not all Partners are suitable to both though.

  • A) (default) Fast Food Flow: Only suitable for partners with low preparation time. Orders are sent to the partner only whenever the Scoober courier is assigned and predicted to arrive within the given default ‘preparation time’ by the partner. Order is sent directly to the POS integration.
  • B) Unified Order Flow: for partners with higher preparation times. Requires the Takeaway Tablet/App/web (T-Connect or Live-Orders) as a primary connection.

Hybrid solution: Fast Food Flow where the orders come to the POS after having been accepted on the tablet.

For non-Scoober partners, orders are sent directly to the POS (without tablet) as soon as the POS logs in. 

For Scoober partners, Lieferando never sends orders right away, as they either go to Scoober or T-Connect first. 

Menu item matching

In the Lieferando Partner Dashboard, the restaurant has the option to assign IDs to the individual menu items (see the following image). The ID entered here will be passed on to the cash register system. Depending on the integration, the assignment to the POS items is made based on this ID or the name of the item. The procedure must be coordinated with the responsible POS vendor.
The restaurant or sales partner can also send an excel file to the responsible support agent containing the menu item name and menu item ID to assign the IDs.

Order flow

Lieferando and the Just Eat Takeaway platform dispatch the orders basing on the configured notification channels. If the POS accepts the order, MERGEPORT submits the “accept” and Lieferando notifies the end customer of the order being prepared. 

In the current version, Lieferando and the Just Eat Takeaway platform do not support the denial of orders. All incoming orders must be processed. “Rejects” are ignored.


Lieferando provides two ways to assign POS item IDs to the online menu. 

1) Via support 

2) Via Lieferando Partner Dashboard
