The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in businesses needing to quickly adapt new features and services so they can stay engaged with their customers.
To help support your business and keep you engaged with your customers, Katie Cerar, Senior Product Lead with Shopify Plus created a Google Slides presentation that outlines how to setup a Buy Online and pickup Curbside experience.
Grab some photos of your store, some brand assets, product photos, and descriptions and in as little as 10 minutes, or an hour depending on how much you'd like to customize you could be offering curbside pickup!

Nice presentation! I would also like to add that Curbside Crowdfunding / pre-orders makes a lot of sense too. Shopify store owners can run crowdfunding campaigns on their Shopify store, and if they hit their goal, a delivery service would pick up the entire order at once and deliver locally to customers, using https://apps.shopify.com/fundlify app. This process means that customers can stay home, it's safer for everyone!
I found the presentation very helpful, thank you for that. Now does shopify offer any form of scheduling pick up times to the customer. Is it possible to add this feature either at check out or after the "ready for pick-up" email has been sent. We'd like to offer say 8 pick up slots per hour, during our normal hours of operation. Any guidance on this would be appreciated.
Hey there, is there a way to get the liquid code for whatever specifies an order as being pickup? Right now our customers are ordering for pickup but the packing slips passed on to our shipping service have no notes or markup indicating that it is a pickup order. The customer's shipping address is not blank or our store, it's their address... And so we've ended up shipping a few orders that were meant to be pickup and there is too much confusion especially considering that we are fighting hard to keep up and running at all.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
