This article explains how you can add a Delivery Category in Ingrid Merchant Platform.

Adding a Delivery Category


  1. From your Ingrid Platform admin go to Delivery Checkout > Regions > Specific Region
  2. Scroll down to Delivery Categories and click Add new

  3. Set a name for the category. This would be a default name of the category in Ingrid Platform. You can specify for a certain language later with the usage of Translations
  4. Specify the Delivery Type (Delivery, In store, Mailbox or Pickup Point). Mind: the delivery type of a category should be the same as Carrier product delivery type you want to link a category with.
  5. When the new category is created, there is a pop up window for fulfilling all the Delivery category settings.

    Mind: by default any new category is inactive and you need to detail it to enable it on the Checkout.
  6. Set up a sort order. This number will define the order in which a category will be shown on the checkout.
  7. Optional: Set up the delivery time. Learn more in Delivery time article.
  8. Add a carrier product. This would link your delivery category with a specific carrier service. If not linked - the option won't be shown on the Checkout.
