Benefits of Delivery Service Areas

  • Create zones by drawing a polygon and/or by placing a radius on a map 
    • Upload GeoJSON files created previously to ensure consistency across all of their platforms/tools.
    • Radiuses can be placed anywhere on the map instead of stemming from the primary location. 

Define multiple delivery service areas

  • Define multiple delivery zones (by drawing a polygon or defining a radius) within a service area.
  • Each service area has its own order minimum, delivery fee, and delivery estimate associated with it.
  • Multiple service areas can be created and named to be unique! 
    • Limited to 30 service areas or less per store.

Delivery Estimate Update
