Local shipping features are available in Shopify.
It is beneficial to connect local delivery when you need to track the progress of an order up to delivery by a driver.
When preparing the goods in the store for the order, the status "Ready for delivery" (Ready for delivery) is marked.
Shopify uses Google to prepare the best shipping route.
The driver using the Shopify application will be able to complete the delivery along the route and mark the fact that the order has been transferred to the buyer.
Order delivery status available:
- Ready for delivery;
- Delivered (Out for delivery);
- Failed to deliver the order (Attempted delivery);
After the delivery is completed, the status of the order changes to Fulfilled.
To activate the local delivery function, you need to set the flag for the warehouse that local delivery is available and specify the service area (the maximum distance from the warehouse to the buyer).
You will also need to install the free app Shopify Local Delivery .
