There are few businesses like a gift shop, flower shop, grocery shop where you can deliver the order on the day itself. But, you will charge an additional cost for the same day delivery apart from the order total.
This feature is available in the plugin where you can add additional charges for same day delivery. You can setup this under Order Delivery Date -> General Settings -> Time settings.
Additional Charges for Same Day Delivery: Admin Setting
If you have an online cake shop where you charge extra $25 on the order if a customer wants the delivery on the same day itself. So, you need to set 25 in the Additional Charges for same day delivery option.
Additional Charges for Same Day Delivery: Checkout Page
Once, you have setup charges, if a customer selects the same day in the calendar, then the additional charges will be included in the order total. And if the customer then selects another date, the charges will be removed.
The same day will be calculated based on the WordPress current timezone and not based on the customer’s local timezone.
The additional charges will be calculated only on the current day and not on the following days. So for example, if the current day is disabled for delivery on your website or if the cut-off time is over for the same day delivery, then the charges will not be added for the following day.
In this post, we saw how you can add an additional cost for same day delivery. This feature is useful for the businesses where you deliver your product on the same day but only with an extra cost.
You can also add additional cost for next day delivery. We will be discussing that in our next post.
