Hello! I have my Local Delivery radius set to 20 km and I just received an order from a customer who was able to choose Local delivery even though they live 26 km away (according to Google Maps). Why was this allowed?

This is an accepted solution.

Hello! Maybe the customer location is inside the 20km radius, but shortest road to there is not straight, so it's 26km ?

Thank you for this.

 

Okay, now that I’ve seen it in picture format I see what’s happened. That’s what a radius is…a point in the middle and in my case, a 20 km out circular coverage area. Hence this is why this Shopify feature has the word radius in it. I should if realized this as I know this concept LOL but for some reason this is not what I had in my head. I thought that this local delivery feature was linked to Google Maps or something equivalent and used the route distances.

 

Thank you for clearing that up for me.
