Order changes can be processed at a store level (at the store's discretion) through their own settlement facilities, but not via the Food Monster system.
The original online order cannot be changed, only 'completed' or the store lodges a cancellation request.
As an example: perhaps you've forgotten to add a bottle of soft drink to your order. You can contact the store directly and simply pay cash/eftpos $x when you pick up / on delivery.
This won't be added to your Food Monster order online, although it's fine to do that transaction directly as long as the store is happy to accomodate that.
