  • Resolved debbrancheau


    Crazy question, but do you validate the shipping address first before a job is actually created.

    For example, if a customer is filling out their shipping address, do we get a response back that Postmates can ship the order and the shipping fee before the customer places the order?

    So if the customer abandons the cart, what will happen? Will Postmates still create a job and show up at the shop’s doorstep to pick up the order?

    @debbrancheau The address validation is done when you send a request to Postmates (if that’s not an actual address) but otherwise how can you tell the customer put the a wrong address if that’s an existing one?

    Also Postmates has a Delivery Quote endpoint that you can get a quote before creating a delivery but the purpose of the plugin is to automate the workflow because if you want to check the quote before accepting it you can create the deliveries manually from their dashboard. While users they see their delivery fee as soon as they add an address on their account and that’s exactly the delivery quote retrieved from Postmates.

    Regarding the last question in the plugin you can choose at which particular order status do you want the delivery to be created so if the user abandon the cart there will be no order created.

    Hope this all makes sense to you 🙂
