Just wanted to announce a new project I started: Commerce Pickup
The goal is to provide an "In-store pickup" option in checkout to select instead of shipping quotes. It provides a shipping method+service, and uses entities to create a list of available pickup locations.
The module is still pretty fresh, and right now it's basically just a working first-pass. You can choose which entity+bundle you want it to use, and it will simply list the titles of all those entity+bundles as options (linking to them). So for example, you can create a new nodetype called "Pickup location" (or in the future, if there's ever a "Store" entity, you could use that), and then all nodes of that type will be listed in checkout as a pickup option. It saves the selected location alongside the "pickup" line item that is creates, and lets you view and edit it from a new "Pickup" tab in the order admin interface. Currently, it doesn't make the pickup location visible/editable to customers after selecting one... but I figure that will be added pretty soon...
I'd love to get some discussions going on where to go next with the module. I'm sure there are ideas out there, and I have a few of my own. What do you think?
Exciting module! Have you
Exciting module! Have you thought about some of the features of the Kiala Module ...
For example, would be nice if customers could "save" their favorite locations, etc...
I haven't heard of that
I haven't heard of that module, but that's an interesting idea (saving favorite locations). I'll take a look at it to see what else it offers.
