  • Contact the Customer Care team to get your access token

Once you have it, you will need to update your checkout.liquid  template file on Shopify

  • In the Shopify admin interface, go to the “Themes” page, under the “Online store” section. For the current theme, click on “Actions” and select “Edit code” in the dropdown. Search for the checkout.liquid file
  • Update the checkout.liquid file by adding the following code at the end of the <head>   section (just before  </head> )

{% if content_for_layout contains 'data-step="shipping_method"' %}


<script type="text/javascript">

var bigblueSCKT =

{

token: "**INSERT TOKEN GRANTED BY BIGBLUE**",

shipping_address: {{checkout.shipping_address | json}}

}

</script>


<script src="https://bigblueprod-pickup-point.web.app/shopify-checkout/pickup-point.js"></script>


{% endif %}

We advise you to test your checkout once upgraded.

Please note that if your buyer did not choose their pick-up point when ordering, they still has the possibility to do so after the payment for 30 minutes.

6. How will the pickup point selection look like?

  • At the checkout on PrestaShop and WooCommerce and after the checkout for Shopify, your customer can choose the pickup point shipping option
  • The map will appear and your customer will be able to edit the location with the address of his choice
  • The pickup points are listed in order of proximity to the address entered by your customer
  • This map allows your customer to navigate between the closest pickup points. We display: the exact distance from the address and valuable information such as the opening hours
  • If the buyer does not choose their pickup point during the 30 minutes, they will automatically get assigned the closest pickup point from the shipping address
