We've turned on Pickup, but we're seeing an error when folks use the Express Checkout options. As they're checking out, the only options they can choose from are Shipping options. They can't choose Pickup unless they use non-Express payment options.
Anyone else seen this?

It's great to hear that you're taking advantage of the new local pickup feature. At the moment, local pickup is only available on orders paid for by credit or debit; if the customer pays using Shop Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, or PayPal on the first step of the checkout, then the pickup option will not available. This is expected behaviour and a limitation that our developers are looking into.
While this is something our team is aware of, having the local pickup option available for orders placed through the Express Checkout is definitely a feature that many merchants would find useful, and I'll be sure to pass your feedback along to our developers. Hopefully this can be addressed in the near future! In the meantime, feel free to keep an eye on our Changelog, where we regularly announce platform updates and feature releases.
I hope this clears things up!
+1 on this being a feature that will hopefully work with Express Checkout. However, we found another issue with one of our shops that is 'wholesale' focused. This shop is wholesale only and can't sell to the general public, so all customers must be logged in to be able to see prices and checkout. However, the first step of the checkout process ("Information") is skipped when a customer is logged in, and therefore immediately jumps to the "Shipping" step of the checkout process. As a result, the Pickup option never shows up for logged in customers unless they miraculously know to manually select the "Information" link in the checkout steps breadcrumb as demonstrated below:
Does anyone know if there's a way to 'force' every checkout (including "logged in" customers) to begin at the "Information" step so the customer sees the Pickup option as shown below (if you know to click on the Information step):
Thanks for any help or ideas!
Julie here from Shopify Support. I just wanted to thank you all for expressing your interest in using PayPal Express with local pickup.
While I don't have an update to share at this time, I do understand the importance of this feature, so I'll be sure to submit your requests to our developers. Hopefully this is something they can consider implementing in the near future. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our Changelog for platform updates and new feature releases.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Thanks for joining in on the conversation.
I definitely appreciate the need for offering accelerated payment methods like PayPal Express with local pickup. While our developers are currently working on this, I'm afraid I do not have a timeline on when this will be ready. However, the more feedback we get, the better, so I'll be sure to submit your feedback as a feature request.
As mentioned above, please keep an eye on our Changelog for updates!
