Purpose: Offering flexible delivery options to your checkout page is the easiest and fastest way to increase your online conversion rate by up to 30%. When you've connected your Magento 1 webshop with Sendcloud, you can instantly offer delivery to service points to your customers by following the simple steps below.
Step 1: Enable in your Sendcloud account
In your Sendcloud account, go to Settings > Connected shops and click on the pen to change settings of your shop.
Tick the box 'Service Points' and the carrier for which you want to activate this delivery option (for instance, a standard and an express delivery option).
Step 2: Enable in Magento 1
Go to your Magento 1 back-end to the following locations:
- Firstly, go to System > Configuration
- In the left menu you select Sales > Shipping Methods
- You should see the Service Point Flat Rate shipping method. Click on the title to see the options:
- Enable the Service Point Flat Rate and adjust the settings as desired. Make sure you set up a price for the delivery option.
- Save the settings
Step 4. Check if everything works
Now that the shipping method is activated in the checkout, your customers are able to select a location in their neighborhood where the shipment must be delivered.
We always recommend to do some tests afterwards. You need to place a test order to check if you can select the shipping method, as shown in the image below.
The shipping method is now activated in the checkout of your shop, which means that your customers can now select a service point location as shipping option.
Congratulations! Service point delivery is now available on your online store. Offering several delivery options is always better than offering only one, and it also increases your conversion rate.
