For on-demand service-based businesses, a delivery boy plays a significant role in managing doorstep deliveries.
“On-time delivery is considered to be one of the most important KPIs (Key Performance Indicator) for eCommerce industries as it is directly related to customer satisfaction”.
So, if you run a delivery-based business using Shopify, you need to have better management of delivery services on your online store. Considering this, we came up with the Delivery Boy App for Shopify to simplify the order-to-delivery process.
The Delivery Boy App provides a simplified way to streamline delivery services on your Shopify store. With this app, you can add agents as delivery boys, assign orders to them, and track orders assigned for deliveries. The agents will manage the deliveries via the Android/iOS mobile app.
Moreover, you can set commission rules to define how much your agents earn per order delivered to the customer. Let’s dive into the details.

Let’s understand the workflow.
Setting up Merchant’s Account
After the successful installation of the app, you will straightaway be redirected to the “Settings” section to manage your account settings.
In this section, you need to enter your first name, last name, email ID and mobile number. Now, save the details.
Create Commission Rule for the Delivery Agents
After configuring your account settings, you can set commission rules for your delivery agents. With this, you can define the amount your agents earn per order delivered to the customer.
The commission can either be null if you pay the agents separately OR the commission can be of two types:
- Percentage-based commission: Enter a percentage amount as commission. This % amount will be deducted from the total order amount and paid to the delivery boy.
- Fixed commission: You can enter a fixed amount per delivery as a commission for the agent.
You can anytime remove the commission rule set for the delivery agents.
You can set a proximity distance for the agents to pick up the order from the Warehouse address. This way, you can assign an order to the agent who is available in the radius configured. You can manage this from the Warehouse Details section in the app.
Warehouse Address: You need to mention the Warehouse address i.e. the physical store location from where the delivery boy needs to pick up the order.
Proximity Distance: Configure a distance and assign orders to the agents only within this specified radius.
