WooCommerce local pickup plugins are add-ons that users can use to add self-collection “delivery” options to their customers. Moreover, you can get a lot of benefits by giving your customers the option to collect their purchased products themselves.

In this Article, We are going to see the top 10 WooCommerce local pickup plugins that you can use on your WordPress website.

The WooCommerce (WC) local pickup (or collection) feature is a “delivery” option that allows your customer to pick up their purchased products themselves from one of your designated physical stores. Furthermore, the local collection option is usually implemented via WooCommerce local pickup plugins.

If you have the collection option active, then once your customers make a purchase on your online store, they will have the option to come to collect their purchased product from a list of possible pickup points (determined by yourself) from the checkout page.

So, here is a quick summary of how a self-collection plugin works:

  1. You may need one of the many WooCommerce local pickup plugins to enable this feature
  2. You activate/add the WC local collection shipping option on your online store
  3. A customer comes to your online store, selects a product, and proceeds to the checkout page
  4. On the Cart or checkout page, this customer will see an option for local collection, along with a list of pickup points
  5. If this customer decides to pick up the product himself/herself, he/she just needs to click on the WC pickup option and select the collection location from the list
  6. Once the collection option is selected, the customer then proceeds to make the payment for their product
  7. Once the payment is made, the customer can visit their chosen location and collect their purchased product

As you can see, it’s a win-win situation for both you and your customer, and this will be explained in the upcoming section. Moreover, there are a few WooCommerce regional self-collection plugins that allow customers to choose a specific day and timeslot for the product collection, thus letting you know when to expect them.

The WC local collection option is very useful for e-commerce store owners because it eliminates the need to deliver products to your customers at your own time and expense. 

Self-collection can benefit businesses that rely heavily on product dispatching. For example, a restaurant with an online menu will benefit greatly from the WC self-collection feature. In this scenario, the customer will view a restaurant’s online menu, place an order for carry-out, and then go to the restaurant’s physical location to get their order. As a result, the restaurant won’t have to worry about delivering the product, and the customer won’t have to wait a long time for their order to be delivered.

Moreover, buying customers can also derive some benefits from a self-collection option. For example, people who “fear” that their orders will get misplaced, damaged, or mishandled can get some peace of mind by collecting their purchased products themselves.

The list of benefits for e-commerce store owners and customers is listed below.
