Specific delivery date means the schedule which is not on regular basis. For example, you have a seasonal business where you can deliver your products only on specific dates. But, you will charge an additional cost for the specific delivery dates apart from the order total.
Additional cost for delivery means the expense which is made by the company while delivering their product to the customers by transport or courier services.
So, in this post, we will discuss how you can setup delivery charges for specific delivery dates. This feature is available in the plugin where you can add additional charges for specific delivery dates. You can setup this under Order Delivery Date -> General Settings -> Specific Delivery Dates.
