Shopify plan requirements

Per Shopifys eligibility requirements you must be on an a Shopify plus plan.

We have introduced a new 'UI Extension' called 'Checkout Delivery Options' on our Shopify app. This extension allows you to customise the checkout process by adding specific delivery options directly to the checkout page.

  1. Ensure you have our Shopify app and then navigate to Settings > Checkout > Customise.

  2. Scroll down and click on 'Add app block' at the bottom of the page.

  3. In the app block selection, you should see 'checkout-delivery-options'. Select it.

  4. The 'Checkout Delivery Options' extension has a settings page where you can choose to show any of the following options:

    • Authority to Leave (ATL)

    • Signature Required
  5. You can rename these settings to anything you like. Rest assured, they will still send the correct attributes to Starshipit upon order import.

How this appears in Shopify

After you have added the Authority To Leave checkbox, you should see it on your shopping cart page and the order details page.
