Learn how to add free local pick-up locations without using Shopify's local pickup feature.

You may want to set up a free pick up option or local pickup option for your customers to come and collect their order. You can create as many of these options as you would like. This can be helpful if you have multiple collection points or warehouses.

First click "create a new shipping rate". Then name the rate something that will reflect that this is a pick up shipping option. You can also use the optional description to give your customers more information. For example "we will contact you when your order is ready" or "Pick up between 10am and 12pm on Mondays". Assign the shipping rate to the appropriate Shopify shipping zone and click "next".

Next you have the option of restricting this pick up rate to specific zipcodes. This can be useful if you have multiple pick up locations or warehouses, and only want to ensure that customers in one area only have the option to pick up from a specific location. Please note, if you don't want to restrict the pick up rate by zipcode you can skip this step and by just clicking "no".

This means that at the checkout, only customers with those 4 zipcodes will be able to select "pick up from Location A". You can create as many of these zipcode specific pick up options as you would like. Then click "next".

You will be asked if you want to use "per product shipping". For this rate, as it's free, we are going to click "no". Then click "save and next".
