Placing an order without shipping and payment checkout


#1

Hi guys!

I have a potential client looking for an ecommerce where you can order goods without the goods being shipped or paid for via the website. The client operates a store that sells fresh meat and therefore has no ability to ship goods to the customer. The customer must therefore meet in the store to pick up the goods, and thus pay for the goods in the store.
Is it possible to get this with Webflow Ecommerce? Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

I see that it is not possible to delete shipment or payment from the Webflow checkout, but I discovered that it is possible to put Display none / hidden. Will this be a good workaround?


Cash on Delivery

It sounds like you are requesting these options on checkout:

  1. Check Payments
  2. Cash on Delivery

Meaning you would just get an Order Form generated by the customer from the user with their request, contact info and address. This would be good to have for webflow’s e-commerce.

Have you tried setting the prices to $0.00 and see if that works? Their account wouldn’t be charged maybe?

I’m sorry my English is not that good, and having problems finding the right words to explain things sometimes.
But yes @Lucius_Blackheart, this is what I’m looking for… just an Order Form generated by the customer, with contact info and address.

Thank you for esplaining this in such a good way!

Hi I have been asking for an option in payment where you can set up a manual option. That could be used for Cash on Delivery, Swish ( Sweden), Wips (Norway), Bill to customers and more.

Currently, you can’t have Checkout completed without a Shipping Info added and Shipping Method selected.

That said, you can create whatever Shipping Methods you would like in the Ecommerce Shipping Settings. So you could certainly create a ‘free’ shipping method with any name or description you want (such as in-store pickup).

You cannot have a working checkout without credit/debit card payment right now, however.


We are planning on supporting selling products that do not require shipping at all in the future (such as digital goods, donations, etc.). And we may provide more options around offline payments as well.

I would encourage you to add and vote for these ideas in our Wishlist, to help rally support from the community and help us prioritize them!

@kkilat that sound perfect, but did not answer my question. How can i test Zapier without a Live plan?
I guess the answer is the same but i want to be sure. Will add this to wishlist if it’s not already there.


#7

Very much in need of this one.
Is there any news on this?
In the wishlist there is a ‘wish’ to just add a ‘ask for a quote’ function

Hi @Sven_Erik_Slattedale.
Foxy can handle what you’ve described, all managed inside of Webflow. If you’re looking for a solution until Webflow releases this functionality, we may be a good fit. Please let us know if we can be of assistance. https://www.foxy.io/webflow

Thanks,
Josh

Hey, @kkilat can you please clarify this:

You cannot have a working checkout without credit/debit card payment right now, however.

Does it mean I can’t use"cash on delivery" option at customer checkout? For example, I am living in a not supported country for Stripe and I don’t have a Stripe account. Can I still use the e-commerce feature of Webflow with “cash on delivery” type of checkout (where there are no payments happening in the website)?

Thanks so much!

You are correct – right now you can’t use a ‘cash on delivery’ type option with our existing checkout flow.

That is something we’re looking at possibly enabling in the future, though. I recommend adding or voting for it in our Wishlist: https://wishlist.webflow.com/?category=6579779972431486791&sort=popular

There are even a couple of ideas in there that sound similar or related, already!

I have a similar request to a feature that @Sven_Erik_Slattedale is describing. I want users to have accounts, search and/or browse products, and add them to their cart. However, unlike normal e-commerce situations, I don’t want the prices to be displayed, or for there to be a purchase or shipping at the end of the experience.

I’m in the process of designing the UX for a client’s new website where they will have lots of products displayed. I want users to be able to go through the selections and add them to a place that saves their selections so that they can go back to it and retrieve it at a later time (like when they’re face-to-face with a salesperson).

The site is going to be for a building supply company. They want to show product selections on their site without prices displayed. They want customers to examine aspects of the products and spend time making selections at home so that when they step into the store and speak with the myriad of helpful, knowledgeable, friendly salespersons they will mostly know what they want even before they walk into the brick and mortar store. They will order and pay for the item(s) through the salespersons in the physical store.

A Foxy rep posted above that this could be done through them so I’m going to check that out to see if it’s going to be a viable option. In the meantime, I’ll petition Webflow via the wishlist system.

If anyone has any further suggestions, please let me know! Thanks a bunch!
