What is the need / problem ?
Very often we get asked if it is possible to limit the display of specific shipping methods or payment methods to specific order cycles.
Who does it impact ?
Hub managers that wish to offer more complex array of options for their users. This is a common trait of moderately complex food enterprises.
What is the current impact of the problem ?
Many hubs are currently running multiple enterprises to navigate this problem or trying to use the tagging system to solve this problem. The result of using these methods is that operation of their shop is much more complex and time consuming. It also limits the flexibility and there are many hubs that would like to try small innovations to support their shop but are not able to. This creates dissatisfaction.
What is the benefit of focusing on this ?
This would enable:
- People to be able to accept cash or card payment on pickup only at specific order cycles and collection points
- Courier shipping only for specific products
- Simpler wholesale OCs with specific payment methods for wholesale
- Many more things as per Louises list at comment 31 on this thread.
Essentially this feature offers lots more flexibility in the way that hubs can manage their shops!
Potential solutions that will solve the problem ?
[brainstorming to list feature candidates]
The current working solution is an option within the Order Cycle creation to turn and off shipping and payment methods for specific OCs. Technically this will be a flag on the OC to specific available shipping and payment methods.
