Enabling Delivery and Pickup
Once the app is installed and activated, you can go to Local Delivery and Store Pickup, and enable them.
With the default settings, you will be able to see both options activated on your store’s frontend. You can test this by going to the store and adding a product to Cart.
If both options are enabled, customers will be able to choose Delivery or Pickup.
If you want to display the Shipping tab along with Local Delivery and Store Pickup, you can choose Yes for the setting “Display Shipping tab alongside Local Delivery and Store Pickup in the shopping cart”.
Now, customers will be able to choose a preferred shipping option, if required while checking out.
The plugin offers the following options to further customize your Local Delivery options:
Customers will be able to choose Date, Date & time, or Date & time interval based on the choice of the store owner. There are also options to set a Daily order limit, Cutoff time and Lead time for each day of the week.
You will be able to choose specific dates where delivery won’t be available. Similarly, you can set the number of days to limit how far in the future an order can be placed.
With this app, you can set availability conditions for the shipping method as well. For example, you can set a minimum amount as cart total for making Local Delivery available. Also, you can include or exclude specific products for the shipping method by adding product tags in the designated field.

Make it required to select a delivery or pickup option
You can make it a required step for customers to pick a delivery or pickup option before moving to the checkout. Simply toggle the ‘General’ radio button to ‘Yes’. This would mean the customer has to either choose a delivery or pickup time, or they can choose the shipping tab, if it is enabled on the store.
Date and time format
Depending on the region you are operating from, you may have a preference for the date and time format. While using this app, you will be able to customize the format. From the settings, you can configure which day to be considered as the start of the week, the way the date is displayed, and also the time format.
Show the first available date
You can choose to display the first available date when a shipping option is selected by the customer. You can enable this option separately for Local Delivery and Store Pickup.
In these settings, you can let customers add a comment and also display delivery information.
Modify the labels
You can also modify the label text shown in the site’s frontend. This could be useful even to translate the label text to another language.
The app also allows you to choose a color scheme, and also to apply custom CSS to change the visual elements in the frontend. The default option would be to keep the style of the current theme you are using.
The application is absolutely free on the Shopify app store. However, it will continue to be so only for some time (3-4 months).
