What Details Help Nutrislice Troubleshoot an Ordering Issue?
Every now and then there may be an error that Nutrislice Support needs to take a look at. Receiving a screenshot of your view when the error occurs, and knowing whether you are using a web browser or the Nutrislice app helps expedite our troubleshooting process. We appreciate screenshots that include the full view of the checkout page or the following information:
Can I place orders for multiple people at once?
All orders in your cart at the time of checkout will be connected to one person’s information. If you are trying to place orders for multiple people, we recommend submitting your orders for one person at a time. Once you have successfully submitted the orders for the ﬁrst person and your cart is clear, you can add and submit orders for the next person.
I have students who go to diﬀerent schools. Do I have to make a separate Nutrislice account for each student?
If a user account is already set up to place orders for a diﬀerent school, you can use the same account to log in and place orders with any organization that oﬀers ordering options through Nutrislice. If your school has the Parent Account type available, you can add additional students under Your Account > Your Information. If the Parent Account type is available but you are currently using a diﬀerent account type, you can change your account type on this page as well. Please note that all students listed on the account will appear as an option at checkout when using a Parent Account, regardless of which organization’s Nutrislice website you are visiting.
I already have a Nutrislice account for another family member. Do I have to make a separate account for each person?
If your organization has the Parent Account type available, you can add additional people under Your Account > Your Information. If the Parent Account type is available but you are currently using a diﬀerent account type, you can change your account type on this page as well.
I received a password reset email but I am not seeing the reset button.
Depending on your bandwidth, the Reset button may not appear in the email. However, this link is still active, and you can still reset your password by clicking the blank space in the email.
I can’t place an order.
All required ﬁelds on the Checkout page must be ﬁlled before an order can be submitted. Required ﬁelds will display an asterisk (*). If you are ﬁlling out all of the required ﬁelds but are still unable to place an order via a web browser, this may be a data caching discrepancy within your browser. We recommend trying to place your order using a diﬀerent browser or incognito window. If you are able to place the order successfully using a diﬀerent browser, clearing the cache and cookies on your original browser will resolve the issue. (You can do an internet search for your web browser’s name plus “clear cache and cookies” for detailed instructions.) If you are using the Nutrislice app, or are still not able to place an order when using a diﬀerent browser or incognito window, we recommend taking a screenshot of your checkout view and reaching out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can’t put food in my cart.
You may be trying to select foods that are not available to order. Foods that are available to order will have a plus mark (+) in the lower right corner. Clicking on the plus mark will add the food to your cart. If there are options available for the food, you will be able to select your options before adding the food item to your cart. If there are no food items available to order on a speciﬁc date, the cutoﬀ time for placing an order may have already passed. We recommend reaching out to your organization for further insight on what options are available for placing an order after the cutoﬀ date.

I attempted to use my credit card online but the transaction was declined and now I see transactions in my card history. How do I get a refund?
All transactions you make online begin with an pre-authorization hold of the purchase amount on your credit card. If a transaction fails, the pre-authorization reverses automatically. This can take up to 3-5 business days depending on your bank. Please note some banks include pre-authorizations with real transactions on their app, which can be confusing.
Can I use the mobile wallet feature?
Only locations with a barcode reader can accept mobile wallet transaction. At this time, the majority of locations can not yet accept mobile transactions. Please ask your cafeteria if they can.
I want to create an account, but I don’t have a card number.
Option 1. Buy a gift certificate online, print it and ask your child to give it to the cashier. This will transfer the money from the certificate to the card that will be given to them. Option 2. Give an amount of money of your choice to your child (minimum $ 20), and ask your child to give it to the cashier. The cashier will apply the money to the card that will be given to them.
I bought an eCertificate, now how do I get a card?
Print off your eCertificate and send it to the cafeteria with your student, it will be exchanged for a card.
