FedEx Hold at Location at Shopify Checkout

FedEx Hold at Location is an alternative delivery option that allows shipments to be kept at a local FedEx location instead of being delivered to residential addresses. This is an ideal option for customers who are not present at home to receive their packages & do not want to risk losing them by leaving them unattended at the door.



If you are shipping your packages through FedEx and want to provide FedEx Hold at location for your customers, then it is possible in your Shopify store using the Ship, Rate and Track app.

To enable FedEx Hold At Location, follow these steps:

  • First, install the FedEx Ship, Rate and Track app if you have not installed it yet in your Shopify store.
