Connect the SAYL platform to lighstpeed

Connect your Lightspeed account

You can import all your products, modifiers & variations at once. Follow the below steps to connect the Lightspeed account & Sayl platform.

Step by step :

Go to the menu option ‘**Integrations**’, select Lightspeed Resto and click on 'Create a new configuration'. Now fill in the required details.

Select a preparation location and enter a name in the Configuration name field.

Click on the 'Continue' button.

You will now need to log in into your Lightspeed account. Make sure you have the admin credentials of your Lightspeed cash register.

Exceptionally, some Lightspeed customers have a password with escape characters in, like a backslash “\”. This causes the Lightspeed system to throw a “server error”, in the developer console you’ll see “URL_SCHEME incorrect”. To overcome this error, you must double each \. So if your password is 12\34, you must enter 12\\34.

The login user must have admin rights, otherwise you can not connect on the API.

After connecting Lightspeed, you return to the Sayl screen. Click ‘Save’ at the right top.

Congrats: You just successfully connected Sayl with Lightspeed. Head on to the importing of products and tables.

Make sure orders arrive in LS at your preferred terms

In your POS menu in SAYL, you can choose how many minutes upfront products arrive in LS. This can come in handy to manage your ticket administration in the kitchen.

Ex. products for take-away will arrive 10 min upfront in your LS system.
