Now Shopify merchants can deliver their products to local customers faster than ever.
We’ve partnered with Uber to do what once seemed impossible—make affordable, reliable on-demand delivery a reality for even the smallest business. With Shopify and UberRUSH, your customers can get their online orders in hours not days, making last minute online shopping convenient and impulse buying irresistible.
You've probably already noticed UberRUSH couriers hurrying through the streets of New York, San Francisco, and Chicago delivering packages from Shopify stores. If you operate an online store in one of those cities, you can soon offer your customers on-demand delivery. We’re actively working with the Uber team to expand this service into more locations.
How does UberRUSH work?
Shipping with UberRUSH is like having your own on-demand courier. When a customer requests UberRUSH delivery, simply pack the order, and then schedule an UberRUSH pickup from the order’s fulfillment screen. Within minutes, an UberRUSH courier will arrive, pick the order up, and promptly hand-deliver it anywhere in the city.
With UberRUSH, you and your customers can easily track the order’s exact location from pickup to drop off. You can keep track of the order in real-time right from Shopify, and your customers will be emailed a link to UberRUSH’s live map so they can keep track, too.
How to get started with UberRUSH
