If you run a brick and mortar store, you can offer your customers to order products online and then pick them up in your store. This service is called Click and Collect. It has many advantages for your customers: They e.g. don't need to pay the shipping costs, can usually pick up the products on the same day, and can seek advice in your store. You as a merchant can also benefit from Click and Collect: You need to send less packages, can offer your customers a useful service, and often the customers buy further products when picking up the ordered ones.
