It is possible to create a Square Online Checkout link for items available for pickup, however you'll need to ensure that your settings are correct in order for the link to display pickup as the fulfillment option. 

 

First, Pickup must be set as the only fulfillment option for the item:

 

 

Personally, I'd recommend creating multiple items with different fulfillment types in their titles if you plan on using checkout links and offering multiple fulfillment options via checkout links - I named mine Latte [ Pickup Only ] to avoid confusion:

After your customer enters their information in the Your Details section and clicks Next, they'll see this:

Hi there @barntiquecreati - and welcome to the Community!

 

At this time, it isn't possible to use checkout links with the pickup feature. Checkout links are intended for:

  • Collecting payments - to accept money for any reason.

  • Buyer entered payments - to let your customers pay an amount of their choice.

  • Items - to accept money for items in your Item Library.

  • Donations - to allow a donor to enter an amount of their choice.


If you could possibly let us know a bit about what you're looking to accomplish here, we should be able to work together to make it happen.

I think the way this will work since I don't ship is that after a subscriber gets setup, I'll just have to contact each one individually to arrange their preferred fulfillment--pickup or delivery (that we do ourselves) And if they want to choose delivery, we can charge a small fee for the zones we set up since the card is then on file. 

I'm going to embed the code in a button on my site's "main banner" so it has a permanent presence, but it doesn't really give much room for explanation. I might try something else...

Thank you,

Telina

I'd like to create a recurring payment for a physical item--a monthly wine club-- so I created a checkout link. Is there a way for customers who subscribe to select fulfillment options (pickup and delivery) like my online store has? 

Thank you

Hey @telinarohrer!

 

Thanks for posting in the Seller Community ️ and welcome!

 

We do not currently have that feature for Square Online Checkout links. Take a look at @Valentina's best answer in this thread. 

 

Let us know if any other questions come up and we hope to see you around the Community more 🌠
