Food delivery point-of-sale (POS) systems are restaurant software and hardware tools that enable restaurants to receive orders, process payments, and manage deliveries. Moreover, food delivery POS systems should be able to accept orders placed in-person, online, over the phone, and via third-party platforms. The best systems dispatch drivers with GPS directions and send automated order status texts to customers. We evaluated dozens of systems to determine the best overall.
Based on our evaluations, the best delivery POS systems are:
- Toast: Best overall for delivery operations of all sizes that want in-house and third-party delivery tools
- Revel Systems: Best for high-volume delivery operations with an in-house driver team
- SpeedLine: Best delivery POS for offline functionality and one-on-one support
- Upserve: Best delivery POS for full-service restaurants that want to add delivery
- Lightspeed Restaurant: Best delivery POS for ghost kitchens and restaurants relying on third-party platforms
- Square for Restaurants: Best free delivery POS
How We Evaluated Delivery POS Systems
We considered dozens of the most popular POS systems based on what tools a restaurant needs to manage a delivery operation, including GPS mapping, mobile ordering, and third-party platform integrations. We also looked at general POS functionality and ease of use. We noted our retail and restaurant experts’ evaluations of each software to reach a final number.
Using the above criteria, Toast emerged as the best food delivery POS. The software received the highest overall score (4.04 out of 5). Toast is also one of the top POS software that we recommend for independent restaurants, based on our experience using various POS software and working in restaurants that use POS systems every day.

Delivery adds to a restaurant’s costs, so we looked closely at price and value for money. In particular, we rewarded POS systems that offer free software or free trials and gave high marks to POS systems that offer a software subscription below $75 per month.
20% of Overall Score
A POS for food delivery needs to be a high-functioning POS first. Since delivery operates rely on repeat customers, we paid particular attention to customer relationship management and loyalty functions, robust reporting, and tip management.
20% of Overall Score
We looked for systems that include built-in tools for online menus and driver dispatch management. Systems with integrated GPS routing got bonus points. We also considered the ease of integration with major delivery platforms like Postmates, Grubhub, and DoorDash. The highest performers provide options for creating in-house systems as well as managing third-party platforms.
20% of Overall Score
We weighed how easy each system is to use in a busy service environment and the ease of the customer interface when ordering online or via an app. We considered cloud-based versus non-cloud based services. We also noted how easy it is to contact customer support and access training resources.

Toast is an incredibly popular restaurant POS. The Toast team has spent the past year developing tools for a changing restaurant landscape faster than any other brand. Toast POS is 100% more robust and high-functioning now than it was at the beginning of 2020—and even then, it was already a top-rated restaurant tool.
Toast scored the highest overall on our delivery POS scale, earning a solid 4.04 out of 5. This system performed best in ease of use and general POS functions, and the delivery-specific features were also a standout. The only way Toast could have scored higher is if the system was free and integrated with additional payment processors and consumer-grade hardware.
- Software subscription fee: Toast offers three software subscription tiers: Starter, Essentials (which includes online ordering), and Growth. Pricing at the Starter tier begins at $69 per month for a single terminal with unlimited users and goes up to $199 per month for Growth users. Though Toast regularly runs promotional pricing offers, it’s worth reaching out to its team for a custom quote.
- Hardware costs: Toast Flex tablets and ToastGo handheld terminals are available from Toast at custom-quoted rates. We’ve seen pricing at $450 for a handheld tablet and at $1,350 for a full terminal with a card reader, cash drawer, and receipt printer.
- Installation fees: Toast terminals are routed through a central hub at your restaurant (which gives Toast its robust offline functionality). For most restaurants, this requires a Toast technician to install at least part of the system, incurring a one-time installation fee of around $650. More extensive operations with a large number of terminals may be quoted a higher cost.
- Processing fees: Toast users must use Toast Payments for credit card processing. Rates are customized by restaurant based on sales volume and the types of cards you accept.
Toast Standout Features
Toast has so many built-in features for everything, from employee onboarding to driver management, that you can carve out a niche software solution for just about any type of restaurant—and the delivery tools are no different. Whether you want to rely entirely on third-party platforms, manage a team of staff drivers, or send orders from your own online ordering site to third-party delivery drivers, Toast has solutions for you.
Toast’s standout features include:
- Online ordering customization: Toast users can choose to integrate directly with Grubhub or other third-party platforms via the middleman apps Chowly and ItsaCheckmate. You can keep these integrations live while adding toast Online Ordering to receive orders through your own website.
- Multiple driver options: You can use Toast’s GPS-enabled maps to manage a team of in-house delivery drivers. Alternatively, you can add Toast Delivery Services, which directs your in-house orders to local independent contractor drivers for a flat fee. You can keep all of your customer data without hiring and scheduling drivers yourself.
- Order and Pay via QR code: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) tools are a new frontier for restaurants, and Toast was one of the first POS brands to roll out a built-in BYOD tool in 2020. Its Order and Pay module allows customers to scan a QR code with their smartphone camera to place their orders and pay via their phones. Contactless operations don’t get much easier than that.
- Kitchen Display System (KDS) sync: Online orders print directly in your kitchen or are routed to KDS screens. As orders are marked “completed” by your kitchen team, SMS texts alert customers that their orders are ready.
- A wealth of other POS features: Toast offers the widest variety of built-in POS features, from full-scale workforce management with digital employee onboarding to ingredient level inventory tracking and robust customer loyalty tools. The reporting features are easy to navigate, as are peripherals like KDSes and self-service kiosks.
- Highly customizable
- Central dashboard for multi-location management
- Robust driver dispatch functions with GPS integration
- Can have a steep learning curve to learn its many management functions
- Can get pricey

Revel Systems pairs the functionality of a locally installed POS with the convenience of a cloud POS. This system has reliable offline functionality and a robust suite of online ordering and delivery management tools to support any restaurant type. Its centralized management dashboard is an excellent tool for multi-location restaurants, as it allows you to transfer inventory between locations and perform all manner of operational functions across your restaurant empire.
In this ranking, Revel Systems earned a 3.79 out of 5. The system scored well for general POS functions, which is no surprise since Revel is almost infinitely customizable. It also performed well for delivery-specific functions like built-in driver management. The system would have scored higher if the price were lower and the back-office easier to learn. It’s also fair to note that Revel may simply be a larger system than a small independent restaurant needs.
Revel Systems Pricing
- Software subscription fee: Pricing for a Revel system starts at $99 per month, per terminal. This is billed annually and requires a three-year contract to lock in the price. Price and length of contract are definitely the most significant differences between Revel and other POS systems.
- Hardware costs: Revel operates on iPads, but they must be purchased, pre-configured from Revel directly—though you may be able to re-use peripherals like Epson T88 receipt printers if you have them. Revel provides hardware prices via custom quote, offering hardware leases and flexible payment plans via Apple Financial Services for qualifying customers.
- Installation fees: Revel has a mandatory one-time installation fee that starts at $649 (complex or large installations may incur a higher cost). Your estimated installation fee will be included in Revel’s custom quote.
- Processing fees: Revel offers its own built-in processing system, Revel Advantage. It does not publish its rates online, but we were recently quoted 2.49% plus 15 cents for in-person swiped or dipped transactions and 2.99% plus 30 cents for online payments.* If you prefer to shop around, the system also integrates with Worldpay, USAePay, and FreedomPay.
*Rates based on received quotes. Actual rates will vary based on sales volume, card mix, and Revel System’s discretion.
Revel Systems Standout Features
Revel offers the most robust delivery management tools of any iPad POS. Combined with Revels’ incredibly detailed reporting and menu modification tools, this creates an extremely high-functioning POS for high volume delivery operations. Like Toast, Revel allows you to operate with an in-house delivery team, rely on third-party delivery platforms, or create a combination strategy.
Upserve’s standout features include:
- Delivery dispatch: Map-based driver dispatch tools find the most efficient routes for your delivery team and validate each address before your drivers leave the restaurant. You can email turn by turn direction to your drivers’ smartphones and collect tons of data about your delivery operation to create high-level reports.
- Driver management: Revel allows you to manage delivery drivers with the same level of detail as you would servers in your dining room. You can assign orders to drivers, send mapped directions to their phones, track their status in the field, and print sales reports at the end of the shift with tip tracking and performance metrics.
- Online ordering tools: With Revel, your online ordering menu is hosted on a custom URL that you can link to your website and social media channels. This menu syncs with your internal POS menu, so you never sell an item that you don’t have on hand.
- Digital sync: Like Toast, Revel’s KDS syncs with your online orders, so customers are automatically alerted when their orders are ready. Revel also supports a customer-facing order status display screen that shows order names island order status in real time. This screen shows orders separated by type (dine-in, pick-up, or delivery) and is excellent for restaurants that operate with in-house online ordering and third-party delivery platforms.
- Rewards and customer tracking: Unlike its competitors, Revel includes customer relationship management and basic rewards in its baseline POS. The system tracks customer contact information, delivery addresses, and purchase history. Enabling rewards tracking to sync across the platform is as easy as clicking a button in the management dashboard.
- Strong offline functionality
- Heat map report combines sales and location information to inform marketing decisions
- Pay at the door card readers save on credit card processing fees
- High upfront price

SpeedLine is a locally installed POS that is well-known among pizza operators. It has long been a stalwart in the hectic pizza delivery landscape. The main difference between SpeedLine and others on this list is that SpeedLine is not a cloud POS. If cloud access is important to you, you’ll likely be happier with Revel Systems (which has the most similar functions in a cloud format). However, if you lack strong internet access and you need a lot of one-on-one assistance to get your delivery restaurant off the ground, SpeedLine could be right up your alley.
In our comparison of delivery POS systems, SpeedLine earned a rating of 3.68 out of 5. While it lost points for cost and the lack of a cloud functionality, it scored higher than any other system on delivery-specific functions. This system is especially well-suited for delivery operations that run lots of combos and promotions and those with high-modification menus, like pizza shops.
- Software subscription fee: Unlike the others on this list, SpeedLine does not function on the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. You pay for the whole system upfront, including software and hardware (though you may be able to finance the purchase over a series of months). Total costs will vary based on your unique needs, but you should expect a total cost to run from $10,000 to $15,000 all in.
- Installation fees: Installation is included in the overall SpeedLine price.
- Processing fees: SpeedLine integrates with several payment processors, including First Data, Heartland, Global Payments, and Worldpay. The ability to shop around for the best processing rates can help offset SpeedLine’s higher up-front cost. The system also supports pay-at-the-door card readers, so you can pay lower card-present fees for delivery orders.
SpeedLine Standout Features
SpeedLine has been supporting pizza operations since the 1990s. This system is purpose-built for restaurants that have high delivery sales of highly-modified menu items. Pizza is where SpeedLine shines the most, but any high volume build-your-own-dish eatery will enjoy its wide-ranging modifiers and combo building functions. It is pricey and not cloud-based, however, so you’ll need to do all your reporting and analytics on location in your back-office, which is a little old-school for some operators.
SpeedLine’s standout features include:
- Pay-at-the-door functionality: Its “SpeedLine Pay” app allows your drivers to accept card payments at your customers’ doorsteps. This tool allows you to sidestep the card-not-present transaction fees that usually accompany online payments. SpeedLine Pay card readers are EMV-compliant, which means you’ll have fewer chargeback disputes and pay lower card-present transaction fees. If you process a lot of deliveries paid by credit card, this feature can add a lot to your bottom line.
- Heatmap reporting: One of SpeedLine’s most impressive functions is how it combines navigational tools with sales tools. For example, you can pull up a map that shows what specific items are selling (or not) in certain areas of your city.
- Driver management: SpeedLine’s map view allows you to see which deliveries can be most efficiently grouped together. Busy SpeedLine users sometimes project this view onto a large television monitor to keep a bird’s-eye view over their driver team. The dispatch screen displays estimated driver return times, so you know when to have the next rounds of orders ready.
- Online ordering options: You can choose to use SpeedDine, SpeedLine’s online ordering module, to accept customer orders directly from any internet-enabled device or via your branded mobile app. Both the app and your online ordering site are tied directly to your POS, so prices, combos, promotional offers, and tax rates are uniform. If you prefer a different online ordering platform, like Deliverect or Mobid2Go, you can integrate via SpeedLine’s open software architecture.
- Personalized attention: SpeedLine’s higher price tag and lack of cloud functionality mean that the SpeedLine team must perform many of your installation functions. With cloud POS systems, you are sometimes on your own to perform tasks like creating your menu and network your KDS screens. With a locally installed system, a support rep does a lot of this work. This setup can be a double-edged sword, of course; sometimes, you just want to add a discount yourself. However, if you are tech-phobic and want someone to do all the back-end work for you, this is a good option.
- Operates on iPads
- Strong customer relationship management and marketing features to create targeted campaigns
- Customizable SMS text messages alert customers to delivery status
- Can get pricey
- Driver management is not as robust as competitors

Upserve is a top-rated iPad POS that provides excellent support for full-service restaurants that want to add a delivery revenue stream. If delivery is part of your operation but not your whole operation, Upserve is the POS for you. The underlying POS functions are some of the most user-friendly tools available. The robust customer management and marketing tools allow you to easily reach customers and encourage them to become regulars.
Upserve earned an overall score of 3.56 out of 5, performing exceptionally well in the ease of use category. Its marketing tools and customer relationship management also earn high marks. Like Revel, Upserve’s biggest drawback is the price. With monthly per-terminal charges on top of the baseline software subscription, users can quickly run up a bill. Part of the reason Upserve looks so expensive is that it lists pricing transparently on its website. Once you receive several custom-quotes from POS providers, you may find that Upserve’s prices are competitive.
- Software subscription fee: Upserve offers its software at three tiers: Core, Pro, and Pro Plus. Pricing for the baseline Core membership starts at $59 per month, plus $60 per terminal. Pro subscribers gain access to online ordering and customizable rewards tools for $199 plus $50 per terminal, per month. Pro Plus takes another leap up to $359 plus $40 per terminal, per month.
- Hardware costs: Upserve is one of the few POS systems that operates on Android tablets and iPads. For best functionality, however, you should purchase any tablet, pre-configured, from Upserve.
- Installation fees: If you choose to increase Upserv’s offline functionality by networking your terminals directly to one another, you’ll need a technician visit. This in-person installation comes with a price tag of at least $1,700.
- Processing fees: Like Toast, Upserve locks its users into the system’s in-house payment processor. Upserve Payments processing rates are custom-quoted, flat-rate fees. Rates will vary based on your sales and the cards you process most.
Upserve Standout Features
Delivery restaurants rely on customer information. Physical addresses and personal notes are essential for delivery efficiency, but email addresses and phone numbers allow a restaurant to build future business. This is where Upserve really shines. In fact, Upserve brands itself as a “Guest Retention Engine.” Core subscribers can log a wealth of customer data to create targeted marketing messages. Pro and Pro Plus users can expand the customer relationship with customizable rewards.
Upserve’s standout features include:
- Marketing: Unlike several other cloud POS options, Upserve includes customer tracking and marketing tools in the basic subscription. The system automatically generates a customer profile from credit card swipes. Reports automatically track your top 100 customers and showcase a ton of purchase information.
- Delivery management: Upserve supports integrations with Chowly and Grubhub to directly receive third-party delivery platform orders in the POS. You can set a custom delivery area for in-house delivery and add a delivery fee if you like. You can also create custom text messages to automatically alert customers that you have received their order or let them know it is ready.
- Online ordering tools: Upserve offers online ordering at a custom-quoted price. When you add online ordering, the Upserve team will create your online ordering website for you and brand it with your restaurant logos. As with Revel and Toast, this website syncs with your in-house menu, so if you have 86-ed an item, customers can’t order it online. The online ordering system is fully integrated with your CRM, so you can text targeting promotions to filtered guest lists or send a promo code directly to a disappointed customer.
- Contactless ordering: The online ordering menu supports QR code ordering so that customers can use their own device to order in-house or for pick-up.
- Order ahead: You can accept online orders up to six weeks in advance, so you can plan your staffing and supplies ahead of time.
- Operates on iPads
- Competitive pricing
- Streamlined third-party delivery integrations are excellent for cloud kitchens
- Offline function has limitations
- Driver management features are not robust

Lightspeed Restaurant is a super-streamlined, all-in-one cloud POS for restaurants. The system has long been popular in Canada and with retailers. In the final quarter of 2020, Lightspeed made big moves in the US market, purchasing competitors ShopKeep and Upserve. So, 2021 should be a big year for Lightspeed Restaurants and the businesses it supports.
In our scoring for delivery POS systems, Lightspeed Restaurants ranked just below its sister system Upserve with a total score of 3.5 out of 5. A lower-priced option than Upserve, Lightspeed earned high marks for pricing and overall value for money. Lightspeed would have scored higher overall if its offline functionality were more substantial and if it had more tools for in-house delivery management.
Lightspeed Restaurant Pricing
- Software subscription fee: Pricing for Lightspeed Restaurant POs software starts at $59 per month for a single terminal, and additional registers are $34 each. Add-on modules are priced in two separate tiers: Add-ons and Premium Add-ons. Pricing for add-ons like KDSes, customer-facing displays, and advanced reporting starts at $12 per month. Premium add-ons include Lightspeed Delivery, Lightspeed Loyalty, and Accounting. Pricing for Premium add-ons starts at $39 per month.
- Hardware costs: Lightspeed runs on iPads and—since the POS can be downloaded from App Store—you can bring your own if it is 6th generation or later. Lightspeed also sells iPads and peripheral hardware like compatible Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-enabled printers, cash drawers, and bar code scanners. Prices are available through Lightspeed’s sales department and may vary based on your needs.
- Installation fees: Installing Lightspeed Restaurant is a do-it-yourself job. Lightspeed provides 24/7 customer service and a wealth of online resources to walk you through the process.
- Processing fees: Lightspeed offers a built-in payment processor, Lightspeed Payments. Like its competitors, Lightspeed Payments’ processing rates are custom quoted based on your business type, past or expected sales, and card mix. Lightspeed restaurant also integrates with TSYS and Worldpay if you want to shop for rates.
Lightspeed Restaurant Standout Features
Lightspeed doesn’t have a ton of features for managing a team of in-house drivers—but if relying on third-party platforms is your plan, then Lightspeed will let you trade your collection of platform-specific tablets in for a centralized dashboard. However, small restaurants with streamlined menus will love this incredibly intuitive system. With the addition of the Lightspeed integrated KDS (which happens to be one of our favorites), this becomes an excellent POS system for a ghost kitchen or cloud kitchen.
Lightspeed Restaurant’s standout features include:
- Lightspeed Delivery: Lightspeed Delivery is a premium add-on to the Lightspeed Restaurant POS, and its pricing starts at $39 per month. This module acts as a centralized dashboard to manage orders placed via third-party delivery apps like Uber Eats and Grubhub. In this dashboard, you can view and accept third-party platform orders and manage your menus across all third-party delivery sites in one location.
- Lightspeed Order Ahead: Lightspeed’s Order Ahead enables online ordering for take-out and in-house delivery orders. Customers place orders via your online ordering website at a custom URL. You can view an order’s delivery address in either Google Maps or Apple Maps in the POS dashboard.
- Accessibility and Flexibility: You can download Lightspeed Restaurant directly from App Store and get started taking orders as soon as you connect a payment processor. Add-ons like KDS and self-order kiosk software are also right at your fingertips in App Store, so you can pivot your operation in minutes. Flexible payment options allow small restaurants to shop around a little to get the best rates.
Square for Restaurants
- Baseline POS is available for free

Square for Restaurants is a top-ranking free to low cost POS app with built-in payment processing that offers useful basic functionality for small restaurants. The baseline subscription—which Square handily calls “Free”—is, well, free. This tier includes an online store function that can be used to enable online ordering for a limited menu. The higher-priced options share the free version’s intuitive interface and includes additional restaurant functions, like delivery platform integrations, for a monthly fee.
Square for Restaurants earned a score of 3.45 out of 5 as a food delivery POS. It scored incredibly well for price and popularity among users, though it would have scored higher if it offered driver management functions. With the competitive price and free online ordering website, Square for Restaurants is a compelling option for small restaurants, like cafes, that want to add in-house delivery operations. The price, combined with Square’s centralized third-party delivery dashboard and newly added KDS, makes this another excellent choice for ghost kitchens.
Square for Restaurants Pricing
- Software subscription fee: Square for Restaurants has three software subscription tiers: Free, Plus, and Premium. The Free POS software only offers foundational functions (no seat numbers, course numbers, or reopening closed checks). Plus subscribers can access more full-service restaurant functions for $60 per month. Premium includes payroll, loyalty, and marketing tools at a custom-quoted price.
- Hardware costs: Square for Restaurants operates on iPads or Square provided Square Terminals and Registers. You can bring your own iPads and purchase stands and compatible hardware components through the Square website. Full terminal kits that include integrated cash drawers and printers ballpark for around $1,300.
- Installation fees: Like Lightspeed Restaurant, Square for Restaurants’ installation is a personal project. But if you need it, Square offers a one-on-one installation service, starting at $599.
- Processing fees: Like Toast and Upserve, Square for Restaurant’s built-in payment processing is the only payment processing option. Unlike its competitors, Square for Restaurants lists processing fees on its website. Currently, card-present transactions incur a processing fee of 2.6% + $0.10 per transaction. Card-not-present transactions are charged 2.9% + $0.30 each. Restaurants that process more than $250,000 annually can negotiate a custom rate.
Square for Restaurants Standout Features
Square for Restaurants’ free POS includes integration with Square Online and a central dashboard for delivery management. While the processing fees aren’t as low as some competitors, this POS is an excellent fit for micro-operations that want to accept credit, debit, and gift card payments or more efficiently manage third-party delivery apps.
Square for Restaurants’s standout features include:
- Choose your own adventure delivery: Square allows you to choose to rely entirely on third-party delivery platforms for ordering and delivery, direct in-house orders to on-demand third-party couriers, or deliver via an in-house team. Unlike others on this list, Square charges a fee of $0.50 for each delivery processed by your in-house team. So if you do a lot of in-house delivery, you might be better served by a Toast or Revel.
- Online Store: Square supports online ordering via its Square Online tool, and every Square for Restaurants account comes with free Square Online integration. Your online store quickly imports your restaurant menu, and you can choose to offer orders for in-person or curbside pick-up or delivery.
- BYOD ordering: Like Toast, Square for Restaurants supports contactless ordering via scannable QR codes. This enables customers to scan a QR code then place orders through their smartphone. Orders are sent directly to your POS order stream and print in your kitchen. Customers can pay via the QR code with Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Square Pay, or your staff can drop a check and process payment in the POS.
- No long-term contract: Square for Restaurants allows small restaurants to pay for the POS with month-to-month memberships. A seasonal seafood shack, for example, can use the POS for the summer months they are in business, then close their account without penalties when they shut in the winter.
Whether you want to rely on third-party delivery apps or manage an in-house driver team, delivery POS options are available at every price point and function level to suit your unique restaurant needs. High-volume restaurants with highly modified menus will be supported by the robust functions Revel Systems and SpeedLine offer, whereas full-service restaurants that want to use delivery to expand customer loyalty will find what they need with Upserve. If you’re flirting with the idea of converting to a ghost kitchen, Lightspeed Restaurant or Square for Restaurants have you covered.
The best combination of all these delivery POS functions is Toast. Underlying Toast’s robust options for online ordering, contactless ordering, delivery integrations, and driver management is an incredibly intuitive all-in-one POS. It is also consistently one of our top POS picks for restaurants of all styles. To see if it is a fit for you, visit Toast for a demo.
