Meeting point and pickup locations are one of the most important pieces of information for customers. Having unclear or inaccurate location details may mean your product is quality failed or, if it passes the quality check process, may result in customer complaints.
A meeting point is defined as: A specific place where you meet customers before an activity.
Pickup can be by vehicle or on foot, and the pickup place depends on your preference. You can specify whether you’ll pick up from an area or provide a list of addresses, which may not necessarily be from the customer’s accommodation.
Go to Products > Manage products.
Under “Activity setup” on the left-hand side menu select meeting point and pickup.
Choose between “They go to a set meeting point” and “They can choose where you pick them up from certain areas or a list of places”.
Note: If you offer customers the option to choose between pickup and meeting point, you’ll need to create 2 separate options. If the pick-up/meeting points at different points within the same city you’ll also need to create a separate option for each.
