Pickup point selector has too many options for some countries, which causes browser to freeze even on high-end computers. France has 14000 pickup points, for example. This leads to bad UX and customers might leave.

Response from support team is very fast and informative. Have no problems with plugin as well. 5 of 5 stars ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, Pickup delivery option does not appear to be working after last update. It's simply not shown in checkout no matter what I try. Also there's a lack of ability to disable "preffered time" for B2C deliveries that cause errors all the time when the delivery address does not support this option and then I have to manually remove it for the order. I'd like the option to disable this completely.

This should be a warning for everyone wanting using this plugin! You should be collecting also shipping address - yes, billing AND shipping address also if only pick up points used. Otherwise the label generation will not work which is cruicial! Documentation lacks clarity as it is not mentioned anywhere.

Amazing plugin. Automated list of DPD pickup points, automatic label generation. Saves a lot of time. Had some issues with displaying the pickup point locations but got it fixed with an update.
