How to tag orders where the Local Delivery shipping option has been selected

Shopify introduced their local delivery and pickup features across all Shopify plans in April 2020 to help retailers navigate the challenging times brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

With local delivery, your customers will be presented with a local delivery shipping option at the checkout if their shipping postcode is within the areas allocated for local delivery by the merchant.

Merchants using Order Tagger were keen to have their orders tagged when local delivery had been selected by a customer, especially when they were using a third-party app to manage their logistics.
