Advanced Local Pickup for WooCommerce


Advanced Local Pickup lets you mark your WooCommerce order status as “Ready for Pickup” and adds the pickup instructions to the email sent to your customers. When your customer comes to pick up the order from your store, you can mark the order status as “Picked up” and optionally send a custom email notification to the customer.

Local Pickup is a shipping method for WooCommerce that allows customers to choose to pick up the order from your store. Once a local pickup order is received, WooCommerce uses the same order flow for the local pickup orders and orders with other shipping methods and when you set a local pickup order as Completed, the customer receives the same order confirmation email.

Advanced Local Pickup helps you handle those orders more conveniently by extending the WooCommerce Local Pickup shipping option, it lets you mark these orders as Ready for Pickup and automatically send your customers email notification with pickup instructions. You can also mark orders as Picked up and optionally send your customer a custom email notification.

Made it very easy to add Click&Collect functionality to my website and has it done the job really well. And the developer has been very good in responding to issues and requests for functionality.

This is a very powerful free tool. Very simple to set up. For future development it would be good if I could set a sub-location E.G. Box A, Box B. It would have to prompt somehow.
