Setting up shipping to pickup points with Shopify Shipping

You can set up the option to ship orders to a pickup point instead of directly to a customer's address. Pickup points are usually post offices, relay points, or pickup lockers.

During checkout, your customers can choose a delivery method to ship to a pickup point, and then select the pickup point where they want their order delivered.

After the order is delivered to a pickup point, your customer receives an SMS or an email notification that their order is ready for pickup. Some pickup points are open 24/7, so your customers can pick up their packages any time they want.

Requirements for using pickup points

To use pickup points, your store needs to have an eligible fulfillment location and use eligible Shopify Shipping carriers.

Review the following table of available fulfillment locations and shipping carriers for using pickup points:

    Checkout experience

    If you activate pickup points, then eligible customers have pickup points as a shipping option at checkout. Using a map or list of pickup points, customers can select the pickup point where want their shipment to be delivered.

    After they select a pickup point, relevant information about the pickup point is displayed such as, opening hours, address details, pickup point name, and price.

    Your customers need to meet the following requirements to have pickup points as an option during checkout:

    • All physical products in the cart are eligible for shipping from one location.
    • The fulfillment location has the inventory available to fulfill the entire order.
    • The customer doesn't choose an accelerated checkout method in the first step of the checkout. If the customer pays using Shop Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, or PayPal, then shipping to pickup points isn't available.
