Set up delivery to collection points for Buy on Google (France only)

France only

You may configure your Buy on Google shipping services so that deliveries are made to collection points rather than a residential or commercial addresses.

This article explains how to set up collection point delivery.

Before you begin

  • It isn’t necessary that all of your inventory is available for collection point delivery. You may configure this service for selected items only. Use the shipping_label attribute to assign designated products to this shipping service.

Keep in mind

Managing orders to collection points is different than managing deliveries to residential addresses. Make sure that you've updated your order management processes before activating collection points. If you work with a Channel Partner to manage your orders, you may want to confirm that they support the collection point feature. Learn more about managing orders

Instructions

To set up a shipping service for a delivery to a collection point, you’ll need to configure a new shipping service. Note: to set up this service, you’ll need to already have a contract set up with a provider supported by Google.

If you generally provide free shipping above a certain threshold, using the shipping_label attribute may result in a loss of the “Free shipping” banner. To avoid losing the banner, make sure you also set up a shipping service that applies free shipping above a certain threshold to all offers, regardless of your shipping_label attribute settings.
