Is there a work-around for store collection?
Sure you can do what you said, set delivery to 0 and call it store collection but then how do you manage that for the customer? How does the customer pick a time slot to come and collect? How do you then relay those time slots in emails that get sent out? How can a customer change or edit their time slot? These are issues Webflow cannot solve.
Give it 2 years
Webflow eCommerce is in a really awkward position atm, because it’s appealing more to the designer than the business that the designer is working for.
I understand why, after all the designer is Webflow’s target audience, not our clients we upsell to. However, when it comes to eCommerce, conversion via design should not as a feature replace standard features an eCommerce store needs to have to operate.
Most clients who want custom stores to match their branding want custom solutions/features, or at least the standard powerful features you’d expect an eCommerce store to have (that Webflow is missing). Furthermore, these clients usually have the budget for a custom code build anyway. So you’re stuck with Webflow eCommerce only appealing to an extremely niche set of clients; those who care more about the look of their store than how it functions. This is either out of ignorance, lack of experience in trading or simply only needing a simple solution for a simple business.
But this is not surprising. Webflow eCommerce doesn’t market itself as the all singing dancing eCommerce solution, but simply as a tool for designers to break into the eCommerce sector, and in that regard it does it extremely well - this is undeniable. So yes, keep your eye on it, give it another 2 years for serious clients and maybe use the odd client who is just testing the waters with eCommerce with a really simple business.
Here’s a good example of the limits you can push Webflow eCommerce to atm. Take note of their integrated checkout systems.
