Octolize Pickup Points PRO – App configuration for Shopify Plus plan

If your store is running on a Shopify Plus plan, simply proceed with the further instructions below.

If, in turn, you are currently on a different plan than Shopify Plus, please refer to the proper dedicated guide for the Shopify plan your store is currently using →

During the app installation the Octolize Pickup Points PRO rates will be automatically added for the currently existing Shipping zones in their respective Carrier and app rates tab in the Shopify settings at Settings → Shipping and delivery → Shipping zones

If, for some reason, the aforementioned Octolize Pickup Points PRO rates have not been added there by default, please use the Add rate button to do it manually.

Once the app installation process is complete, let’s move on to…

Adding the Pickup points selector block to the Checkout page

In order to be able to offer your customers the option to select the pickup points at the checkout of your store, you need to add the dedicated Pickup points selector block to the Checkout page template first. If you haven’t done it yet, you should see the information about it displayed as an incomplete onboarding step at the very top of the screen after installing the app.

Reach the Shopify theme editor by choosing the Sales channels → Online store → Themes in the Shopify sidebar menu and use the Customize button next to the theme your store is currently using:

Once you are there, click the drop-down list at the top and choose the Checkout and new customer accounts page template:

You should reach the following Checkout page template editing screen:

Click the + Add app block option in the left sidebar and choose the Pickup points selector. In some cases you may need to use the search box if it is not displayed there by default:

The Pickup points selector block will be added to the Checkout page template and the selector widget will appear in the preview panel below the shipping method:

Once you are done here and the Pickup points selector block has been added, confirm the changes with the Save button in the top-right corner of the screen.

Having it done, the only thing left now is to add the carrier pickup points to the specific countries in the Carriers and Countries table. But before we proceed with that, click the Global settings option in the app menu in the left sidebar. Let’s take a moment first to take a closer look at…

Carriers and Countries

This page contains a table with all countries you are shipping to, automatically fetched from the shipping zones configured in your Shopify Shipping and delivery settings. It is also a place from where you will be able to manage what carrier pickup points should be available for shipping to each listed country.

If a country which you want to make pickup points also available for is not currently listed in the Carriers & Countries table, add it to an existing shipping zone in your Shopify Shipping and delivery settings or create a new zone including this country. Once it is added this way, it will also appear in the table.

Adding carrier pickup points for selected country

To add the specific carrier’s pickup points for shipping to the country where you want them to be available for, click the + plus button in the Actions column next to this respective country:
