Let's set up your Floranext Point of Sale | Lite with delivery Charges.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Delivery Charges - US
Let's set up the delivery charges by Zipcode.
First, navigate to Settings > Delivery Charges in your Floranext dashboard.
Delivery Charge - in the Delivery Charge Section, you can calculate your charges by Zipcode or Distance for US Shops. We will go over both options below. For Canadian shops, please choose Delivery by Postal code.
Out of Area Fee - Set your out-of-area delivery fee if you wish to allow orders outside your area. Make sure the total amount is worth you delivering to those places outside your delivery area.
Store Address for Deliveries - If you have an alternative address for Deliveries, enable the option to Yes and enter in your alternative address.
Delivery Charges - Canada
Floranext has 2 methods to apply the delivery charge to orders that can be used together or separate, distance and postal code prefix.
Applying delivery charge by postal code prefix is recommended because it simply applies the delivery charge based on the prefix (first 3 characters) of the postal code of the recipient's address which typically is a small defined area that has a single delivery charge. It's easy for employees and customers to understand and is the most straightforward.
However, some regions have postal code prefixes that stretch out for miles, and for this, Floranext can also apply the delivery charge based on the distance of recipient to shop.
Here are details of the options below to help you choose which is right for your shop!
Delivery By Zipcodes
Predefine a delivery charge for each zip code you service (e.g. Zipcode 12345 has $10.00 delivery, zip code 12535 has $5.00 delivery.)
Floranext will check the recipient zip code against the list of predefined serviced zip codes and if it's not in the list, then the 'Out of Area' delivery charge will be applied.
How to Setup:
Enter in all zip codes you service along with a delivery charge for that zip code.
Hit the Add Charge button in the lower-left-hand corner.
Here you will the Zipcode, Charge Amount, State, and status. You can add as many Zipcdes at one time if you want.
Delivery By Distance
Predefine the distances and charges (e.g. 0-2 miles has $5.00 charge, 2.01-5 miles has $8.00 charge....)
Floranext will map the recipient address to calculate the distance to the shop, then apply the delivery charge according to your parameters.
Note: If the specifc address can not be found, the distance to the center of the postal cod will be used. Also, if th distance is greater or does not fall within the paramaters you have set, then it will defaut to "Out of Area" delivery Charge and apply the wire out fee.
How to Set Up
Enter in shop's address along with the parameters for the delivery charge (ex. 0 miles- 2 miles has $8.00 charge). Enter as many parameters to the distance you deliver for your shop.
Note: For Canadian Shops, please e sure to set the Units to Kiometers.
Delivery By Postal Codes
For Canadian shops, you can deliver based on postal codes.
How to Set Up
