How Does Minimum Delivery Time Work With Same Day & Next Day Cutoff Settings?

Since version 9.14 of Order Delivery Date, the minimum delivery time can be configured together with the same day & next day cutoff settings. Until now they were applied independently on the checkout page.

Introduction:

Minimum delivery time is set by the store owners when they need some time to prepare for the order before delivery. So, when a customer visits the checkout page, the first available date will be the current time + minimum delivery time.

Same day cutoff is set by the store owners when they want to take the orders for the same day until a certain time on that day. For example, if the same day cut-off is set to 4 PM, then the customers can choose the same day until 4 PM only. After 4 PM the date will be disabled in the calendar.

Next day cutoff is set by store owners when they want to take orders for the next day until a certain time on the current day. For example, if the next day cutoff is set to 8 PM, then the customers can choose the next day until 8 PM today. After 8 PM the next day will be disabled.

Minimum Delivery time with same day cutoff:

When the minimum delivery time is set with the same day cutoff, the current day will be enabled until the current time + minimum delivery time is less than the same day cut-off time.

For Example:
Minimum delivery time: 5 hours
Same day cutoff time: 4 PM

If a customer comes at 10 AM on the site, the same day will be enabled because the 10 AM + 5 hours will be 3 PM and that is less than the cut off time (4 PM). If a customer comes at 12 PM, then the same day will be disabled because the calculation exceeds the cut off time.

In case of time slots, the first available time slot will be current time + minimum delivery time ( and should be less than cut off time ). If all the time slots are greater than current time + minimum delivery time then the date will be disabled as no time slots will be available for that date.

Minimum Delivery time with Next day cutoff:

When the minimum delivery time is set with the next day cutoff time, the next day will be enabled until the current time + minimum delivery time is less than the day after tomorrow midnight and the current time is less than the next day cut-off time.

For example:
Minimum delivery time: 20 hours
Same day cutoff time: 6 PM

If a customer comes on the site at 10 AM today, then the next day will be enabled because 10 AM + 20 hours will be 6 AM of the next day (which is less than the day after tomorrow midnight ) and the current time is less than the cut off time. If the current time is more than 6 PM, then the next day will be disabled.

In case of time slots, the first available time slot will be current time + minimum delivery time i.e after 6 AM of the next day in the above example. If there are no time slots after 6 AM of the next day, then the next day will be disabled.

With Custom Settings:

The minimum delivery time with the same day & next day cut-off will work the same way in the custom settings as explained above.

Custom settings in combination:

When products of 2 categories (or shipping classes) are added to cart and both these categories (or shipping classes) have different custom settings, then common settings between them will be applied with the highest minimum delivery time and highest same day/next day cutoff.

Hello Vinay, The concept behind the cutoff time functionality, be it the same day or the next day, is to allow your customers to choose the current day (same day) or the next day as a delivery date while also giving you, the store admin, more flexibility to set a deadline time (which in this case is the cutoff time) for which customers seeking to place orders have to beat if they want to be able to get their orders delivered the same day or the next day. A real life example of this is considering that you have a… Read more »

Hello! I use the Pro version and I have the following question: our minimum delivery time is 4 hours by default. However, we would like all orders arriving between 5pm and 6am to have a minimum delivery time of 10am. How can I do this configuration? Thanks.

Hi Cláudio,

Thank you for reaching out.

Currently, our plugin doesn’t have a built-in feature to adjust minimum delivery times based on timing variations throughout the day.

However, I understand the importance of this functionality for your business. I’ll make sure to add your suggestion to our enhancement list for consideration in our future updates. 

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any further concerns.

Hi Su Lei, Sorry for my delayed response as we were on leave due to the Diwali festival here in India. Here are the answers to your questions: Under General Settings > Time Slots section, you can create the timeslots per weekday as well as per specific delivery dates as per your requirement. You can refer to this documentation: https://www.tychesoftwares.com/docs/docs/order-delivery-date-pro-for-woocommerce/setup-delivery-date-with-time/time-slots-along-with-delivery-weekdays/Do you just want to set the cut off time on first timeslot only? Can you share the list of your timeslots and tell me your cut off time? We do use Minimum Delivery time to cut off delivery time but… Read more »

We are setting our delivery times minimum of 72 hours, but when a customer selects the free delivery coupon it is ignoring the 72 hours – what needs to change ?

Hi Lisa,

What is ‘free delivery coupon’ option on your site? Is it the shipping method? Did you create custom delivery settings based on the shipping method? Could you submit your query here on our support tool? We will communicate more on this and provide you the solution for the same.
