About 50% of our customers are not able to put an order through our website. They are trying to put an order to pick up. When they checked out, there’s an error message at the checkout saying that the product they add to the cart is not available for shipping while there’s no button to switch to pick up as well.
It started recently and we didn’t change anything on our side. Does anyone have the same issue?
Hank here from Shopify.
Sorry to hear this is happening to you, did you notice when it first started and is it still happening?
Or are you seeing any trends other than just when orders are placed for pick up?
I will just share this guide about how to set up the local pick up option within Shopify, just to ensure that the steps are correct.
If you share your store URL, I can take a look at this on my end also.
All the best,
Thank you for sharing your URL which allowed me to check the order on my end.
I noticed that I had no issue when placing an order for pick up, are you seeing an error when you try this?
The only error I saw was when I tried to select delivery, it advised there were no shipping methods. Have you any shipping rates set up within your store? Or do you offer local delivery?
Let me know what errors you and your customers are seeing, but I think it is just in relation to delivery, I see no issue with local pickup.
Has any of your customers shared the error with you or what they are seeing?
The only issue I can see on my end is if a customer selects for delivery instead of pick up, as you mentioned you have no delivery rates set up.
My customer told me that they have had multiple attemps at check out using their Credit cards, however after they hit the submit button, the page hop back to their shopping cart. Hence the order could not be placed. Several customers who had this issue told me that they could only check out with paypal, while most of them can not checkout with both credit card and paypal.
You should be able to see the reasons why these orders failed within the abandoned checkout area of your admin.
But what I can do is take a closer look, to see if there is anything other than what I have advised may be the issue, which could just come down to a mixture of user error, as well as the lack of shipping rates being available and this option selected.
As this is account specific, I will just need to verify your account. I will send you an email to the email address attached to this forum's account and confirm some security questions about your store.
Once you reply to that email, I will look into this further for you.
Thanks for reaching out, @charhourston!
Have your customers advised of the error message they are seeing and also is it for local pickup/delivery or affecting all orders to the United States and Canada?
Can you share your store URL so I can see this on my end or if you have any screenshots that might assist me with this?
When did you first notice this happening?
