    Choose package store

    Hi lads,

    I'm wondering if it's possible to choose a package store? It's a bit expensive to ship directly to customers so it would be wonderful to give people the opportunity to choose which store/location they would like their packaged shipped to.

    Hi Mike,

    When you say store, do you mean a TC store? or do you have representations of store locations some place else?

    Ultimately on the checkout page, you'd probably want to list the store locations then record the selected store in the order properties collection

    https://docs.teacommerce.net/3.3.0/api/order-property/

    You could then update the edit order view to display which store they chose in the back office so that the person fulfilling the order know where to send it to.

    Does this help?

    Many thanks

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    You somewhat got it right! I'm thinking more of a "Enter your postal code and see nearby GLS package locations", something like that.

    Letting the customer choose a package shop/delivery location would make it cheaper for them and the TC Shop owner.

    Hi Mike,

    Ok cool. Well I think this falls under general umbraco setup rather than tea commerce specific issue, as I think really you'll have one TC store to service all products and then have content nodes to represent the store locations.

    The way I have done this in the past is to create store location nodes somewhere in the content section and then use something like Terratype (https://our.umbraco.com/packages/backoffice-extensions/terratype/) to set and store the location of each store. You can then represent these on a map as per your visual.

    The tricky part comes with the geo searching to find stores near a specific location. You'll likely need to use a third party service like google maps to geo code location names and convert them into latitude and longitude coordinates and then perform a spacial query to find nearby result.

    The spatial searching isn't the most straight forward, but there are lots of examples in the forums if you have a search https://our.umbraco.com/search?q=lucene%20spatial&cat=forum

    Unfortunately there isn't really a one click solution for this kind of thing at the moment so it will require a bit of research into the topics mentioned above.

    Hope this helps

    Matt

    I think GLS provide that as a service for their customers - https://gls-group.eu/DK/da/losninger-til-webshops

    Thank you for the feedback guys, I really appreciate it!

    I think I'll scrape this feature off the list as it exceeds my knowledge/experience.

    Cheers
