If you are running an online store, isn’t it a great idea to provide a streamlined pick up process to your customers so that they can pick up their orders on their own and avoid shipping rates. Also, the Store Owner will steer clear of trouble in managing Returns & Exchanges.
Considering these traits, Webkul is here with a new feature app called Store Pick up.
Using the Multivendor Marketplace Store Pick-up feature app, the admin can allow his sellers to provide an order pickup option to the customers. Thus, customers can pick up their orders from the seller’s store and get rid of the shipping rates.
Once the admin activates this feature on his/her end, the seller can enable the store pickup option which will be applicable to all the products of that seller. Seller will provide his store address as the “Store Pickup Address”.
This feature app is at the monthly charge of $10 USD per month in addition to your current Multivendor plan.
