The NearSt Local Checkout feature is directly linked to your product listings in Google and Facebook.

Through just the click of a button, shoppers can pay for and reserve one of your items. You’ll receive an email with their request. You can confirm the orders and track them in MyShop in the orders tab and similarly, let the customer know when the product is ready for collection. The shopper will also receive confirmation as well as instructions on the collection of their order.

Below is an example of what the Click & Collect tag looks like in Google See What’s in Store:

You will receive notifications of orders through email, but you can also enable SMS notifications.

How do I enable SMS notifications for orders through Local Checkout?

Notifications for new orders will be sent to the email address associated with your NearSt account. We understand that in some cases, it’s not possible to frequently check emails, and these notifications would be better off if received through SMS. Don’t worry, we have you covered and it’s super easy to enable SMS notifications of orders.

To do this:

  1. Log into MyShop and head to the Channels tab.

  2. Under Local Checkout, click Manage Connection

  3. From here, you’re able to adjust the email address and add a phone number and tick the Send text messages for new orders box!

  4. Done! You will now also receive notifications through SMS rather than just emails
