Facilitating customers to select their desired order delivery details before checkout

In our earlier post we saw how admin and customers can change their order delivery details easily through the Edit option on the WooCommerce Orders page using Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce plugin.

Today on the same lines, we will see how customers have the facility to choose their desired order delivery details before checkout on the Cart page.

How this works?

Enabling Delivery Date field on Cart page setting

Once you have enabled this setting, the delivery date field will be added on the cart page as shown below. If the time slot setting is effective, then the time slot field will be added after selecting the delivery date.

Thus customer can choose a specific delivery date and time slot on the cart page before proceeding to Checkout.

This helps the customer to check for possibility of the order delivery on their desired day and accordingly make amendments to the dates before checking out.

Say for instance, you require your order to be delivered on Tuesday but the deliveries don’t take place on that day. So due to the added settings, the calendar on Cart page will show Tuesday disabled.

This helps you to take a decision immediately after adding items to the cart about the day your order could be delivered.

Thus the delivery details that you have selected will be saved on the cart page as shown below. Click on Checkout button to proceed.
