Tips & Tricks:
Provide an in-store pickup option to customers buying products with hazardous materials.
Some products, like batteries or fluids, contain materials that are not permitted to be shipped in the United States. If your business sells items that contain potentially hazardous materials, it’s essential that you ensure it’s clear to shoppers that they can still pick up items in-store, even if they cannot get them shipped to their door. In fact, the Nissan Parts & Accessories Online program received over 4,500 orders for in-store pickup just last month!
This practice helps your store avoid shipping errors and gives local clients the opportunity to see your team and your parts counter in person. Luckily, it’s easy to toggle this option in the SimplePart Control Panel; we’ll walk you through the process below.
From your Control Panel homepage, enter the product number of the item you wish to update in the product search bar at the top of the screen. This will lead you to that product’s Edit Product screen, where you can edit or add various information you’d like clients to see regarding a product.
Scroll down the page to the “Set as Local Pickup Only” and “Set as HazMat” lines. After that, you simply need to toggle the respective icon so that it shows up as blue, click “save,” and that’s it; that product will now show customers who use your site that they’ll need to pick up the item from your store in person.
