Add Delivery and Pickup Locations

You dictate how, where and when your customers receive their orders. Use delivery plans and pick up locations to best service your customers.

Delivery plans

Delivery plans dictate which customers will be offered delivery. A customer with a set city matching one of your delivery locations will automatically be offered delivery. A customer with a non-matching city will not be offered delivery. Pickup locations are always offered to customers no matter their city.

Add a Delivery Plan

  1. Click the Deliveries tab on the navigation bar.
  2. Click Delivery Plans.
  3. Click Add Plan button.
  4. Complete the form fields and note the following:
  • Order Lead Time - This is the amount of time you need to prepare the order from when it was received, to when it is delivered. The clock for lead time is based off 11:59 PM on the day of delivery. 
Example: The order time for the Toronto delivery plan below is 48 hours, and they deliver Monday to Friday. If the customer orders Monday they will not be able to select Tuesday as their delivery day. Wednesday is the first day they can expect the delivery because of the 48-hour lead time

Availability

Weekly:

  • Select the weekdays you deliver to the given city

Monthly

  • Select the days of the month you deliver to the given city (i.e. every other Friday, the first Monday of each month)

Custom Checkout Message

After customers place their order, the Custom Checkout Message will appear with the automated confirmation that the order was placed successfully and the date of delivery. 

This is a good place to include any of the following information:

  • Delivery fees may vary depending on weight of order
  • If you will send them tracking information on shipped items
  • Will you message in Local Line for updates 
  • Your contact information 
  • Any other items they should know about your delivery process
