Enabling the 'Reserve a Product' button on your shop page
We recently introduced a new feature on our near.st shop pages that allows shoppers to ask you about reserving specific products for pick-up.
This feature is especially useful if your shop is closed for walk-ins, but still can provide product pick-up services.
How it works
Once this feature is enabled for your shop, we will add a new button to your shop page called 'Reserve a Product'.
From there, shoppers can send you a message about a product, and you will receive an email with their request. You can then give the shopper a call or send them an email to let them know whether the product is available and when they can pick it up. Payments will happen in the shop.
How to enable it
In your MyShop dashboard, under the 'Shop page' menu item, you can specify a Reservation email address. Once this has been added, we will automatically enable the 'Reserve a Product' feature on your shop page within an hour.
Let us know what you think
We would love to know what you think about this feature and how you'd like to see it develop further! We are launching this as a trial, and already have some ideas on how to extend it when it turns out to benefit shops.
Send us a message, we'd love to hear from you!
