About Shopify Local Delivery
Before adding the app, set up local delivery in your settings.
This app is an add-on for businesses offering local delivery at checkout. Local delivery can be enabled for a location in your shipping and delivery settings. During this step, you can define your delivery area and price. Customers in your delivery area can then select local delivery at checkout.
Manage local delivery orders in one place
The Shopify Local Delivery app helps you manage deliveries with optimized routes, automated notifications, and order status updates. Deliver to customers nearby with shareable delivery lists.
To use the app, set up local delivery in your Shopify admin settings. Once local delivery is enabled for your location, you can define your delivery area and price. Customers in your delivery area can then select local delivery at checkout.
Once you’re ready to deliver your orders, the app offers tools that drivers need to efficiently deliver orders. As deliveries are completed, upcoming stops will be moved to the top of the list.
Efficiently plan your routes
Create delivery lists that can be shared with drivers who have access to your store’s admin. Stops can be manually organized in your desired order, or you can use the automated route optimization feature. The optimization feature suggests the most time-efficient route for up to 100 stops (including the starting and ending location). This feature is powered by Google maps, and directions for each stop can be opened in your default map application.
Stay in touch with your customers
View special delivery instructions that customers requested at checkout, and call or text customers at the touch of a button.
Customers will receive an automated email or SMS notification when their order is on the way, has been delivered, or when they miss a delivery. Notifications are triggered from the app when an order’s delivery status is updated, and can be customized in your Shopify admin settings.
Keep track of delivery progress
As drivers update order statuses in the app, changes will be reflected on the orders page of your Shopify admin. You’ll know when a delivery is in progress and when orders have been delivered.

This app helps me route and complete my local deliveries around Winnipeg. I was honestly not going to download it at first because of the negative reviews but now that I've been using the app I don't understand why it has so many bad reviews. It's literally such a good app. It's so simple to use and set up. It integrates perfectly with iPhones. The set up is minimal. The only thing that isn't great is that you can't add addresses yet that haven't bought and selected local delivery, which is why I gave it a 4 star. But literally other than not having that one feature yet it is such a good app. Highly recommend especially for people just starting their online business and offering local delivery
Well, I really liked the app and I'd loooove to use it but unfortunately it does not work for any items that are subscriptions, I cant think of a good reason why but there you go. Even if one single item in your cart is a subscription item and the rest aren't it still will not work. So farm CSA's, recurring orders etc are out of luck.
I personally love this app. I recently switched from another website hosting provider to shopify and shopify offers a lot of tools, support and resources to help make your order fulfilment smooth and organize. Highly Recommend this app if you offer local delivery.
