Sellers can now accept the pick up of the item(s) sold by the buyer at a designated address.
When creating a new listing, and if the seller accepts pick-ups, he or she can choose between two options in Shipping & Payment to accept pick-ups. These options are are Pick-Ups Accepted or Pick-ups Only.
• Pick-Ups Accepted : The buyer may pick up their purchase at the item's location indicated by the seller when listing the item and on the item's description page.
• Pick-Ups Only (no shipping) : The buyer can only pick up their purchase at the item's location indicated by the seller when listing the item and on the item's description page. - all shipping options for this item will and/or global shipping settings will be deactivated (not visible).
These new options can be used by the seller if (for example) as a service to local buyers, if the item is too large, if the item is too expensive or only transportable at the buyer's own risk...etc.
- The buyer must contact the seller before and/or after their purchase if they have any questions concerning pick-ups, to inform the seller that they wish to pick up their purchase and for the pick-up details (full adress, date, time...).
- Sellers can link (but not always) the pick-up options with the payment option Cash-On-Pickup or other. This means that a pick-up option can, but doesn't necessary mean that the buyer may pay on pick-up (example: if upfront payment, direct payment or payment in advance required...).
