Native Shopify buy online, pickup in store

In store pickup is coming to the Shopify checkout

Why this is a big deal

Some of you might say well this is something that could already be achieved with an app, and you are right, however none of the apps were up to scratch in my opinion.

  1. Often very expensive and tied to a wider Click and Collect network.
  2. The integration with the checkout wasn’t great, often relying on JS on the cart page or cart drawer. Meaning that if you wanted to direct customers straight into the checkout flow, they would skip the option.
  3. Shoe horning one of your store’s address into the delivery address field, always felt like a hack which will pollute any future reporting on where people ship products to.
  4. Issues with a free “in store pickup” delivery option appearing when customers used express checkouts like Apple Pay (where cheapest shipping is selected by default) or PayPal, which either caused confusion or customers getting free shipping when they shouldn’t.
