Deliver To Store Overview

The Deliver To Store feature is a variation on the Click & Collect feature which gives you the simple ability to allow your customers to select a store for delivery as a shipping method. If you like, you can enable this feature at the same time as Click & Collect because it functions independently of it. However, unlike Click & Collect orders, store stock levels are not taken into consideration for Deliver To Store orders; only web stock levels are used. Otherwise, Deliver To Store orders function in the same way as web orders, with a special case Shipping Method ID automatically applied and the delivery address being populated directly from a selected delivery Stock Location.

Note that currently this feature is only available at no charge to the customer.

In order for an item to be eligible for Delivery to Store, the following conditions must be met:

  1. At least one Stock Location must be a ‘Deliver To Store’ location.
  2. The item web stock must be available for purchase (as per standard web orders).
  3. You must have enabled the main ‘Enable Deliver To Store’ Application Setting (which is in its own grouping of Application Settings called ‘Deliver To Store’).

When you have met all of these conditions, ‘Deliver To Store’ options will be available for selection on the delivery page (Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx / Mobile/Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx / PrivateSale/Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx) and basket page (Basket.aspx / MobileBasket.aspx / PrivateSale/Basket.aspx) of your desktop, mobile and Private Sale pages. Here is an example of a basket page:

In this case, the customer needs to select a Shipping Method of ‘Deliver To Store’ from the drop-down menu and their shipping fee will be set to zero:

Note that if a customer includes items in their order that are ‘Deliver to Store Only’ but have not chosen this delivery option, they will see the following error message (configurable via Small Translation 2476): ‘Your basket contains some items that can only be delivered to a store but you have not selected “Deliver to Store” as your shipping method. Please review the following items and your selection.

Here is an example of a delivery page:

As you can see from the screen capture, the customer can now search for a suitable store location from which to pick up their order once it is available.

IRP Admin Pages Involving the Deliver To Store Feature

The Deliver To Store feature affects the following sections of IRP Admin:

  • StockLocations.aspx: This page displays a column for the ‘Deliver To Store’ value.
  • BrandEdit.aspx: This page allows you to set the ‘Deliver To Store Only’ value against any brand. When checked, all basket controls on the front end of your website will be updated to display ‘Deliver to Store Only’. Note: If you don’t check this box, all eligible stock will be available for both home delivery and Deliver to Store.
  • SiteEmailEdit.aspx: This page includes an option to configure the site email type ‘Deliver To Store Ready For Collection Email’.
  • Orders.aspx: Deliver to Store orders will automatically have a special case Shipping Method ID applied to them and the text ‘Deliver to Store’ will show on the order details (this will be free):

The order type will display as ‘Delivery to Store – Location Name – StockLocationID’. The full stock location name and address will display as the delivery address.

Successfully Using the Deliver To Store Feature

To ensure that you are using the Deliver To Store feature in the optimal manner, follow these steps:

  1. Define one or more of your Stock Locations as a Deliver To Store location. For more details see Stock Locations.
  2. If required, define one or more of your Brands as a ‘Deliver To Store Only’ brand. Remember: If you don’t check this box, all eligible stock will be available for both home delivery and Deliver to Store (assuming you have enabled the ‘Enable Deliver To Store’ Application Setting as described below). For more details see Brands.
  3. Ensure that your web stock is available for purchase. For more details see Models.
  4. Set up System Emails to automatically notify a Deliver To Store location that a customer’s order has been dispatched to them and to inform your customers when their Deliver To Store order is ready for collection. For more details see System Emails.
  5. Enable the ‘Enable Deliver To Store’ Application Setting. For general information about these IRP settings see Application Settings.
  6. Test that your front-end basket (Basket.aspx / MobileBasket.aspx / PrivateSale/Basket.aspx) and checkout delivery pages (Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx / Mobile/Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx / PrivateSale/Secure/DeliveryAddress.aspx) look as you want them to and that orders are coming through and are being managed on the back end as you expect.
