Our Ecommerce pro feature currently has four delivery options. The first option is the “In-store delivery”, the second option is the “Carry out” delivery, the third option is the “Shipping” delivery and the fourth is “Table service”. A brief explanation of each of the delivery methods is given below.
In-store delivery: The In-store delivery option requires your customers to go and pick up the product from a physical store or warehouse after paying for it online. It is common practice for items to drop in price when in-store pickup is selected. The In-store delivery method gives your local customers a cheaper and convenient alternative to shipping.
Carry out delivery: Carry out delivery is when you order in person and get it to go. You actually carry it out.
Shipping delivery: This method is ideal for long-distance deliveries. The product is sent overseas by ship or plane and typically takes a few days to arrive at the customer’s door. This method requires the use of a Google maps API key. To set your API key, select “Settings” from the side menu on the left side of your screen and choose “API key” from the drop list.
Table service: Table service delivery mostly applies to restaurants. The customers come to the restaurant to eat after paying through the app.
When you are done selecting your delivery methods, go to the “Activation form” section.
In the “Activation form” section, you can select multiple payment methods for your store. Some payment methods like Paypal and Wallet require some additional information to be filled out. Choose the methods you require for your business and fill out the required information for each payment method. Type a label and confirmation message for when payment is made. Move to the “TAX” section when you are done.
A tax rate is a percentage at which an individual or corporation is taxed. In the Tax rate section, you are required to enter your country’s tax rate ( without the % sign ). Click “save” when you are done.
