What is Delivery Area Support extension?

Posted On: 17 November, 2023. 10 min read

Delivery Area Support extension will help you define the locations or boundaries where your store(s) can deliver your products.

Why do I need this extension?

1. If you are an owner of a hyperlocal store, it is of utmost importance for you to define an area where you will be able to deliver your products.
2. If you run an F&B outlet, choosing too large a delivery area won’t be an apt option for running delivery errands.
This extension will help you set a boundary for the delivery area beyond which you can choose not to deliver your products.
3. If you have multiple stores and multiple locations, this extension will help you set a delivery region for each store according to their location, service availability, etc.
4. This extension will also help you set different delivery prices for different distances/areas covered for delivery.

How will this change reflect on my website?

When the user visits your online store, on the home page, the user will be able to see a Location tab on the header section of your home page. The user can enter the location at which they would like to receive their deliveries, and according to the delivery zone criteria set, the system will check whether delivery can be done in this area or not.
When your customer signs in to your online store with their email ID, they will be required to add their respective address in the Profile section.
If the address added does not match any of the criteria defined for delivery zones, an error message will be displayed as shown below
If the address added matches any one of the criteria defined for the delivery zones, it will automatically populate the City and Pincode fields. The user can save the address by clicking on the Add Address option and continue shopping.
If the customer directly starts adding products to their checkout cart, when they click on Add to Cart , a dialogue box will appear requesting the user to add the location.

What happens when I uninstall this extension?

You can no longer define delivery areas for your online store’s delivery service.
The system will assume that your store delivers everywhere with no boundaries or area limitations.
You will not be able to define delivery fees for all the deliveries that you accept via the online store.
