Step 1: Install the Shopify App

Access Locate2u’s app: You’d need to install the Locate2u Shopify app in your Locate2u backend.

Automated Stop Creation: Orders that meet your specified criteria will automatically create stops within Locate2u. This includes gathering customer contact details and addresses.

Real-time Order Updates: Any changes in Locate2u, such as order completion, will automatically update the corresponding Shopify order. This feature is beneficial for in-house delivery fulfillment.

Multi-store Support: Currently, the integration supports one Shopify store per Locate2u account. However, future updates may include support for multiple stores.
