As a store owner, you can create any required number of offline points of sale to provide your clients with more options for in-store delivery. Besides, you can add custom labels with engaging messages informing your website visitors about the availability of an additional shipping method.

After selecting store pickup at the checkout, a customer will see the address of the closest pickup point. Also, you can display a message with additional info on the shop’s address and working schedule. Thus, your clients can come to pick up their orders at the most suitable time. Moreover, you can add comments to the order details with information on in-store pickup sent via email. After completing an order, shoppers can also check detailed info on the selected delivery option in their accounts.

As for the backend management of pickup points, the Amasty Store Pickup extension gathers all your offline locations in a separate grid. This way, you can view, edit, and create new stores for pickup from one place in the Magento Admin. Furthermore, when editing an existing pickup point or adding a new one, you can choose particular store views where a store pickup shipping method will be available, as well as allow its visibility for selected customer groups.

Backend

To configure the Magento 2 Store Pickup module, navigate to Stores -> Settings -> Configuration -> Sales -> Shipping Methods and expand the Store Pickup by Amasty tab. First, enable the module to make the store pickup shipping method visible at the checkout. Next, you can create a custom title for this shipping option and select countries for which it will be available. In the Displayed Error Message field, you can specify the text that will be shown to customers in case in-store pickup is not applicable. Then, choose a postcode format (Strings or Numbers), set the sorting order among other shipping methods, and decide whether to show the store pickup option if it’s unavailable.

The Amasty module lets admins configure the options of the store pickup as a shipping method. The corresponding settings are available under Sales -> Store Pickup. The method options screen has 4 tabs: General, Labels, Stores & Customer Groups, and Pickup Stores. In the first section, you should enter the name of the shipping method ({store} variable can be used here). Next, you can specify the text using HTML tags that will be displayed in the message next to the shipping method on the frontend. It is also possible to upload an image here. Then, set the appropriate status to activate or deactivate the delivery option.

In the Labels tab, you can create custom labels and comments for each store view.

Next, select store views and customer groups for which the store pickup option will be applicable.

Under Pickup Stores, there is a grid that lists all stores that are available for pickup. The grid shows the country, state, city, zip codes, and name of each offline location. It is possible to edit and delete a store from here, as well as create a new pickup point by clicking the “Add New Store” button.

When adding a new sales point, you need to specify its address details, create a name, and specify the base rate for the shipping option.
