Guys, does the pro facility allow “Set Maximum Deliveries per day by Orders or Product Quantity” to apply to specified product categories only (i.e. we have fresh cooked Soups, Sauces and Mains – which we want to limit to our daily kitchen capacity of 150 items overall – and Desserts and Essentials which do not need to be limited). Please let me know if Delivery Date for WooCommerce plugin can handle, thank you…
Hi Richard, It is not possible to allow “Set Maximum Deliveries per day by Orders or Product Quantity” to apply based on specific product categories. That will apply across all categories & shipping methods. We may need to do this in the form of a custom feature which is chargeable.
Hi Vishal, that’s great. I think we’ll go ahead and take the Pro version off the shelf product anyway. Out of interest, can you give me an idea of the cost of drafting the custom feature, and how long it would take to deliver please?
Hey Richard, Sure, I will get back to you on the costing & estimate of the custom feature tomorrow once I hear from my team. I hope that’s fine.
Yep, great. You too…
Loving the plugin. All set up and running. Just one thing I can’t fathom, can you help me please… We have two delivery days – Wednesday and Saturday. Cut off time for orders is 10pm Sunday for Wednesday delivery. And 10pm Wednesday for Saturday deliveries. So, I tried setting 50 hours as the minimum time in General >> Date settings, thinking that would count back 50 hours from each delivery day – but that pushed next available delivery dates out by an extra week. And then I tried setting minimum delivery periods per ordering day in Weekday Setting, thinking they… Read more »
Hi Richard, I know this is 6 months old, but I had the same problem and thought I’d post the solution in case anyone has it. You need to tick the box ‘Apply Minimum Delivery Time for non working weekdays:’ and it will solve the issue 🙂
Thank you for sharing the solution here.
Richard McCandless was using our PRO plugin version and we advised him through support email address for adding business days to solve that problem.
And yes, the LITE plugin has the ‘ Apply Minimum Delivery Time for non working weekdays:’ to apply cut off time on non-working weekdays too. This thread will definitely help to our other clients. Thank you.
I just want to check that we can use this so that the customer can specify a delivery day AND time within limited hours (e.g. 9:00 to 5:00)
Also, is it possible to limit how far in advance people can select for a delivery?
We would like to have same day and the next 48 hours.
Yes, the customer can choose a delivery day & a time within the limited hours that you desire.
You can also limit how far in advance customers can select for a delivery date. If you need 72 hours (same day + 48 hours), you enter the “Number of dates to choose” as 3, which means at any time, customers only have 3 days (including current day) to choose from.
Hello – I’m looking at buying this plugin for my customer who has set up a fruit and veg delivery business. He needs to be able to allocate postcodes to certain days so that when they type in their delivery address they will be allocated say Tuesday and Thursday only. Is this possible with this plugin?
Hey Deborah, Yes, with our plugin, you can create delivery schedules by postcodes (via shipping zones & shipping methods) such that for each postcode you can have different days available for delivery.
I am in the process of converting a site from Opencart to WP/wooCommerce and like your plugin description. On question , if you have a report showing all orders on a delivery date , is it possible form the report to simply prin tout all the invoices for that delivery period from the report as weel as a printed rport showing the deliveries for a specific day to allow picking.
Hi Dave, You can see the Delivery Date on the WooCommerce Orders page itself. You can view the deliveries for a specific day as well. The printing of invoices is not something that our plugin provides. But you can do that easily from the Orders page where the Delivery date is also shown.
Thank you for the reply Vishal – With over 40 deliveries a day it would be good if you could just ‘press a button’ enter a delivery date and a schedule is printed and each invoice printed at the same time , not possible yet then ? Dave
Hi, can I remove the defautl date and instead force the customer to choose a date?
EDIT: Don’t worry, found it. thanks.
Yes, you can turn the auto-populate option to off. That will remove the default date.
