Delivery & Pickup options

How can i activate delivery & pickup options inside my store?

Shopify has the following requirement in place for adding the PostNL carrier:

  • It is on the Advanced Shopify plan or higher.
  • Its Shopify plan is paid annually.
  • It is a development store.

If you are on a lower plan than Advanced Shopify, but your plan is paid annually you need to contact Shopify Support to activate this for you. You can ask them this:

Hello Shopify Support,

Could you please active third-party carrier-calculated shipping rates for our shop? The link is <XXXXX>.myshopify.com.

If your plan if below Advanced Shopify, and your plan isn't paid yearly, you can also ask to activate it, but Shopify will ask a monthly fee of $20 for this.

If your plan meets these requirements, but you don't see the methods, please contact us.
