Is Local Pickup still a shipping option? If So, How do I enable?

There has never been a choice of shipping options on eCRATER, it's always been the seller's option.

You could add a question on your FAQs regarding local pickup. You could ask the buyer to send you an email and then deal with the customer through email with a cash payment when you meet.

So there is no way to offer local pick up to the customers?

There is no way for the customer to use the eCrater checkout system for local pickup, but there is no rule against a seller doing local pickup. The only "rule" is your store must be set for correct shipping cost to all 50 states. If you expect a large volume of local pickups, you might add a line to your description that "if you are in the xxxxx area, local pickup is available. Use the Contact Seller link above for more details."

Hello MustangSportsCards. It is nice to see more collectors in the chat.

About Local Pick Up. Agree with SheilaDeesPostcards, add the info too in the of the description.

I recommend read the topic below. Follow the recommendations. Avoid the mistakes from the author.
Very slow in sales

I didn't read the url that Elperles posted, but one of the problems with local pick up is if they pay via PP, there is nothing to stop them from saying they never got their item and PP refunds their money as there is no record of you having shipped.

Do you want buyers coming to your home? If you go to a neutral spot that takes time.

If the customer wants to do local pickup and they have contacted you via email, it's easy to require cash only for local pickup. Very Happy

That is true Sheila! I'm so glad that you are so smart. My brain keeps getting fuzzier due to the meds I take. GRRR
