I am in the process of setting up a store. I will be using Royal Mail as my shipping provider. They don't permit certain items to be sent through the post, i.e. some types or aerosols which we stock. I would therefore like to make certain items in the store Local Pick Up only. I have attempted to set up the Local Pickup option which works for all products, but is it possible to make some products pick up only and remove the Royal Mail shipping option from them?
So it turns out there is a work-around! It isn't the most elegant solution but it gets it done for now. I created a new shipping profile (Settings-Shipping-Create new profile) and added the certain products I need to offer as only local pickup. Then clicked 'Create Shipping Zone' - you can select 'Rest of World' or a specific country, whatever works for your company. Then 'Add Rate' and called it "Local Pick Up" and set it as Free. People still have to enter their shipping info which is a bit annoying, but it does come up as the only option for 'shipping'. Hopefully that could be helpful for you!
Did you go to the individual product and then turn off the “this is a physical product” feature. Only reason why I’m asking is we are selling alcohol through Shopify or will be and we don’t want our shoppers to think it’s coming to their house we want them to come into the physical store for that. Any leads or thoughts?
I created a pick up only shipping option for free and it worked, but big problem is that it comes up as default shipping option so we have a recurring problem of people selecting this by default and then having to ring up and explain and then charge to shipping which isn't received very well. You cannot change shipping order so cheapest always comes first and people don't think to look for other shipping options. We also have certain variants of products only available for pick up but cannot really find a way without paying a lot for an app!
Hi! I have dealt with a similar problem but the other way around, meaning I've had to make some products available for one form of shipping only and not available for local pickup at all. I ended up creating a standalone location where these products are stocked, disabling local pickup for that location, but originally I fiddled with the idea of using weight to filter these out in shipping. I made these products extra heavy (let's say 100 kg) and then made all the standard shipping options have a weight limit of 99 kg so that only one option would come up if a customer puts these products in their cart. Maybe you could use this workaround so that the "Local pickup only" shipping option doesn't show up all the time.
