Local Pickup Not available

Solved

Hello! I just launched our website last night and I have had customers informing me that there isn't a local pickup option available at checkout. I have enabled local pickup at the correct location and correctly set the fulfillment priorities. I am not sure what else to try; it seems like everything is correct on the back end, and even shows "local pickup available at this location" when a customer is adding a product to the cart. It just doesn't give them a button to choose local pickup.

I am using the theme "debut" if that helps narrow down the issue.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, @janiemurphy10 

Welcome to the Shopify Community. Sorry to hear you've been having troubles with your local pickup settings.

Have you tried to add a product to the cart in your store and test to see if local pickup works for you? This is a great way to start troubleshooting. Are you able to recreate what's happening to the customers?

Aside from this, have you run through the Before setting up local pickup help document, as well as our Set up local pick up help document? It's important to run through each step in detail if you haven't already. 

From there, I'll list a few common reasons why it might not be working: 

  • Customers must pay for their order with a credit card, debit card or Shop Pay. If the customer pays using Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, or PayPal, then the pickup option is not available. These are not currently supported for local pickup. 
  • All products in the cart must be available at a pickup location. Make sure to stock inventory at the pickup locations.
  • All products in the cart must be physical products. Click here for the help document.
  • You must have shipping zones set up for the regions where you'd like to offer local pickup in order for the option to appear at checkout. Note: you don't need to have rates setup in those zones. 

Let us know how all of this goes. Are you able to see the local pick up option at checkout when you do a test order yourself? How many locations do you have, and how many offer local pickup?

Thanks!!! I had tried multiple times to checkout myself as a trial run and had a few customers let me overview their checkout process as well.

 

To fix the problem, I created a shipping zone named local pickup and set the rate to free and it is now available to my online customers! 

 

Thanks for the speedy reply and support!

Thanks for the reply, happy to hear you've found a solution for your customers to be able to select local pickup at checkout - however, I'll let you know that this is not how local pick up is intended to work! 

You shouldn't need to set a "local pickup" shipping rate, as this just avoids using the local pickup feature all together. When local pickup is enabled and working as intended, your customers should get to select Ship or Pick up on the Information page at checkout. This will save them the hassle of entering their shipping details. As well, this way you'll be able to easily identify which orders require local pickup. Here's a screenshot of the Information page on the checkout when local pickup is enabled (and eligible for all items in the cart): 

24-44-6245-45353

In order to troubleshoot this further, I'd delete the local pickup rate you've created as a work around. Once you've done this, and you've checked all of the suggested settings I listed in my previous reply. Can you let me know if you see the local pickup eligibily under the product on the product page? It looks like this in Debut (note: US Location is my test location name, yours will be different): 

24-34-61773-3304

From there, if you can see this on the product page, but you're not seeing the option shown above for Pick up on the Information page of the checkout, my next suggestion is to try turning local pick up off, and back on again. It may sound silly, but I was having trouble getting it to appear in my own test store at the checkout, and turning it off (and saving) and turning it back on (and saving) did the trick! You can do this under Settings > Shipping and Delivery > Local pickup > Manage. 

Let me know how this goes! If you're still having issues after this, it may be easiest to reach out to our Support team directly. We're not able to provide account-specific support via the Community, but our Support team will be able to look at the admin settings of your store with you and help troubleshoot this issue further.
