Hello,
we have a little tiny issue, which is the radius for delivery, meaning when a customer wants to order it should be a drop-down box comes asking for pick up or delivery, if its delivery he has to put his delivery address, based on that address we should know is it deliverable address or not because the distance from the store has been calculated, I read in many areas around the forms that it has to be a custom plugin, or do you have request to this feature? Thanks

Hi,

For pickup or delivery choice here is what we usually recommend:
On top of your delivery shipping methods that you already created in the System>Shipping methods menu, you create a new manual shipping method that you call "pickup" and in its options, you can use the "Override shipping address" in order to deactivate the shipping address area to replace it by your store address, some text, etc.
That way, during the checkout, on top of the standard shipping methods, the customer will be able to choose the pickup shipping method.

Regarding a solution taking into account the GPS coordinates of the customer address, there is nothing by default so that would require some plugin development. We did get a few demands to have a shipping plugin whereby the shipping cost would be a formula based on the distance between some coordinates entered in the backend and the coordinates of the customer address, even though that's a bit different to what you're asking, but there is no ready-made solution for that either for now.
