Pickup point selection modes

There are two ways the app can be configured to allow customers to select the pickup point for their order:

  1. Thank-you page mode - in this mode, a popup will be displayed to allow customers to search for pickup points, after the order is completed, in the thank-you page.
    This mode is available to all application plans, including the Free plan.
    For the Free and Basic plans, the usage is limitted to 120% the number of labels included in your plan. For example, if you opted for the Basic plan, which includes 100 labels, you will be able to save up to 120 pickup points.
    Starting with the Standard plan, the number of pickup points which can be saved is unlimited.
  2. The 'Show as shipping options' mode - in this mode, the pickup points are displayed during the checkout, when the customer selects the shipping method and rate.
    The pickup points displayed in this case are in the vecinity of the shipping address selected in the previous checkout step.
    This mode is available starting with the Premium plan.
    Also, this mode requires Shopify's Third-party calculated shipping rates feature. The Third-party calculated shipping rates feature is available on the Advanced Shopify plan. It can also be added as an additional feature to any plan if you pay your Shopify plan annually or for $20 per month. You have to contact Shopify support to activate the feature.

Setting up the Thank-you page mode

First you need to configure a shipping method (rate) in Settings / Shipping and delivery section, which will be available for your customers in the checkout process. Let's say you name it 'DPD Pickup', but it can be any name you choose.

When a customer selects this shipping method, the app will open a dialog to select the delivery location, after the order is completed, in the Thank you page.

Second thing is the pickup point configuration page in the app.

In this page you must enter the name of the shipping method defined in previous step ('DPD Pickup').

You can also customize the dialog, translating the texts or adding a custom CSS to change it's appearance.

The Pickup point list size option is not limiting the number of pickup points loaded. It is only setting the number of lines you can see in the list without scrolling.

Notes


Setting up the 'shipping options' mode

This method has the advantage that the customer cannot finalize the checkout without selecting a pickup point, if delivery to pickup points it's an option for that order destination.

First, select Show as shipping options. If this option is disabled, the reasons will be displayed. You will not be able to select it if the ap plan is not Premium or higher or if your store does not have the Third-party calculated shipping rates feature.

You need to enter the following:

After the order is created by the customer, the app will save the pickup point details in the 'ADDITIONAL DETAILS' section, with the same information as for the Thank-you page mode.
