Various carriers offer a service to have parcels delivered at a pick-up location (also known as a service point or Parcel shop). The location selector is a tool that gives an overview of these locations in the form of a map and a list of pick-up locations, both in the frontend and in the backend. When the customer clicks on 'Select location' a pop-up with a map and list of found pick-up locations in the region of the postal code of the delivery address will appear.
The postcode finder at the top left makes it possible for your customer to select a pick-up location in another region. In addition, you will see 3 more options:
- Open late (after 18.00) | Shows all pick-up locations that are open after 18:0)
- Open early (before 9:00) | Shows all pick-up locations that are open before 09:00.
- Open on Sunday | Shows all pick-up locations that are open on Sundays.
The location can be selected from the list and from the map. When the selection is made and confirmed, the address details of the pick-up location are used as the delivery address.
