Pick up from stores functionality (Beta)

Available in Business Plan and above.

StoreHippo provides the pickup at stores functionality. Enabling this functionality allows your customers to choose the order to pick up from the store instead of getting it delivered.

Selecting the store for pickup

If you have multiple stores at different locations, the customer can select the store of his choice. When the customer proceeds for checkout after entering the name and mobile number, the different store addresses are displayed and the customer can select any store from it.   

Enabling the pickup at stores functionality

To enable the store pickup functionality, follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Go to the Settings > MISC section in the StoreHippo Admin Panel
  • Find the Pick Up from Store field and enable it.
  • Click the Save & Continue button to apply the changes.

Now, the pickup functionality will be enabled in your store. The customers can select the pickup location and place the order.

Adding store locations

The pickup locations list comes from the added store locations.

Suppose, you have two addresses added in the Store locations section. Both of the locations will be shown when the user selects the Pickup at Stores option.

StoreHippo allows you to add the payment method based on the fulfillment method. Suppose you have two payment methods, which are Online Payments and COD. You want to offer the COD payment method only when the customer chooses to pick up the order from the store. Click here to know how to add a COD payment method for the store pickup.

Set zero shipping charges for pickup orders
