The Advanced Local Pickup (ALP) plugin helps you handle local pickup orders more conveniently by extending the WooCommerce Local Pickup shipping method and creating a store pickup fulfillment workflow.
Advanced Local Pickup Pro is a robust store pickup solution for retailers and allows multiple pickup locations, pickup per item, choose which products are available at a location, set up pickup appointments for curbside pickups or takeout orders, and more!
How does it work?
Local Pickup is a shipping method for WooCommerce that allows you to set up the option for customers to pick up their online orders at your retail store, curbside, or any location that you choose.
Your customers can choose a pickup location (and appointment if enabled) during checkout and when a new local pickup order is received and available for pickup, you can change the order status to Ready for Pickup and trigger the email to notify the customer that the order is ready for pick up.
The pickup instructions for the location will display on the order received confirmation page and will be included in the ready for pick up email notification.
When customers come to pick up their order, you can change their order status from Ready for Pickup to Picked up. This signals you and your staff that the order has been picked up and no further action is required and you can optionally send a picked up email notification to your customers.
