OK, so local delivery. I’m so jazzed to tell you about it. We’re in the middle of rolling it out to all shops, global. A global feature. And so what this means is, you know, store owners like yourself or perhaps you want to task this to your staff.
You can actually go and deliver orders within a vicinity that you would like to do. So this way, you can take into your own hands.
I was speaking with a florist the other day. And she was so excited about this coming up because, you know, flowers are super fragile. You don’t want to maybe hand it off to another courier, you want to take care of it yourself.
So this is coming out, and it will also be in your shipping settings. Do you want me you all about how to set it up?
Absolutely show me more.
OK All right. Here we go.
So once you’re in your shipping settings, you can decide if you want to to ship to certain ZIP codes or postal codes, if you’re Canadian, or, if you don’t want to be that detailed you can just set a radius. So say I’m going to deliver to 10 miles or 10 kilometers, you can choose that.
And then that way the buyers that are eligible at checkout they’ll see that option, but anyone who’s not eligible won’t see it.
And what’s also really cool is that as a buyer, you can leave notes. So for the delivery driver like, "you ring the doorbell," "leave on the doorstep," or "beware of my barking dog, he’s actually really friendly."
Is that for me?
Yeah, me too, though. Charlie Brown is quite loud.
But the other thing that’s really cool, so that’s the shipping settings part, there’s also an app.
It’s called the local delivery app. And what this does is it allows you to from the order index page that Lynsey was just describing, you can pull all of your local orders, you can then decide the route that you’re going to take. So it’ll optimize your route within the city.
And then you can also let your customers know when you’re on the way. So "delivery’s on the way" or "delivery was successful" and all of this is can be handled in the app and it’s totally free.
