What is Bykea Pickup Integration with bSecure?
Bykea Pickup integration is one of the fastest way to get your products from your warehouses into the hands of your customers. It works automatically after you add your warehouse locations in bSecure's Builder Portal. The Bykea rider will go to your warehouse location nearest to the customer's location and pick up products for delivering to the customer and collecting cash from the customer on delivery.
You have the option to add multiple warehouses and manage your opening hours directly from our portal. You can also enable a grace period for enabling your customers to cancel their orders within the specified time frame, without being charged from the Bykea rider.
