Setting up in-store shipping methods

Setting up in-store shipping methods

For businesses seeking to streamline their in-store shipping process, this extension offers the flexibility to establish shipping methods that are exclusive to the POS system. This feature is particularly useful for distinguishing between online and in-store shipping logistics. The careful selection of Shipping Zones, ensuring they align with your designated Outlets, is crucial for avoiding any operational discrepancies. To set up a shipping method that is available only through the POS and not on your online storefront, please follow the steps below:

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, head over to WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping.
  2. You’ll be presented with a list of defined Shipping Zones. Click on the Shipping Zone you wish to modify or create a new one if needed.
  3. Within the chosen Shipping Zone, you can add a new shipping method by clicking on Add shipping method or edit an existing one by clicking on its name.
  4. For a new shipping method: After clicking Add shipping method, select the method from the dropdown and click Add shipping method again. Save the settings, then click on the shipping method you’ve just added to edit it.
  5. In the shipping method settings, look for the checkbox labeled POS Only.
  6. Check the POS Only box to ensure this shipping method will be visible only on the POS interface and not on your online store checkout.
  7. Save your changes.

When adding a new method, the POS Only checkbox will become available after the initial save and when you return to edit the method. For existing methods, this option can be found directly within the method’s settings.
