Order Delivery Date Plugin comparison with WooCommerce Delivery Date Plugin

When it comes to delivering orders of food products, flowers or other perishable items, store owners need their customers to choose specific dates and time for delivery. This way, they can be well prepared with the orders and deliver quality, on time.

And for this, the store owners might need many features such as set certain preparation time for the order, charges for next day or same day deliveries or book certain days as holidays on which they are not working or send the delivery information in emails to the customers as well as admin and many more.

The most essential feature one expects from a delivery plugin is the minimum preparation time. The best example of this feature is an online cake shop where the owner provides fresh cakes. And they require 4 hours for preparing the delivery of fresh cake. For that, they will want the next 4 hours to be disabled from the current time for the customers to place the order.

Both these plugins i.e. Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce plugin and WooCommerce Order Delivery plugin offer almost all of the basic and necessary features for delivery.

In an earlier post, we have compared our plugin with the WooODT Extended by ByConsole. In this post, we will see a comparison on the features which both plugins provide.

Different Delivery Settings based on Shipping methods, Product Categories, Shipping Class and Pickup Locations:

WooCommerce Delivery Date plugin allows you to set different dates and time slots based on Shipping methods.

Whereas, our Order Delivery Date plugin not only allows to set different dates and time slots for different shipping methods but it also offer several other features, such as different charges for weekdays, Specific delivery dates, Minimum Delivery Time, Maximum Order Deliveries per day (based on per order), Time Range, Same and Next day cut-off times, Maximum Order Deliveries per time slot, Holidays and Field names for Product Categories, Shipping Class and Pickup Locations.

Also, from our Order Delivery Date plugin, it is possible to set a custom delivery setting in a combination of Product Categories and Shipping Methods.

Yes, it is true all these is possible from our single plugin. Keeping in mind the different needs of different store owners we have built all these different features. There are several ways to achieve different delivery requirements from our plugin.

 

Our Order Delivery Date plugin scores over the WooCommerce plugin, providing different settings and features for different users with different needs. This is a big advantage for those store owners who have different delivery plans for different Product Categories, Pickup Locations, and Shipping Methods.

Delivery Date Availability Calendar Widget

This widget is a new feature released by us recently. It will help customers check the available delivery dates before the Cart and the Checkout page, minimizing the time they invest. Unlike before, they will not need to visit the Checkout page just to check for available delivery dates.

Whereas, the WooCommerce Order Delivery plugin does not offer any such widget.

Google Calendar Synchronization

The Google Calendar is literally a lifesaver when it comes to managing your deliveries without messing them up.

Our Order Delivery Date plugin will allow the admin to synchronize the delivery dates & times from our plugin to their Google Calendar, automatically or manually, depending on the method they opt for.

It also allows customers to add the delivery dates & times in their Google Calendar or download the .ics files to add it to any other calendar.

On the other hand, it is not possible to sync your orders with Google Calendar with the WooCommerce Order Delivery plugin.

Regular Plugin Updates with New Features

If you have used premium WordPress plugins before you understand that it is necessary to regularly update the plugin.

Things move forward quickly in the world of WordPress, especially within the WooCommerce community. It is important for plugin authors to make sure that their plugins keep pace with the latest versions of both WordPress and WooCommerce, or they will be left behind.

We at Tyche Softwares work hard on improving our existing plugins every single day to keep it compatible with the latest upgrades. Which is why we have successfully rolled out updated versions of our plugin with new features and bug fixes every other month, sometimes even in consecutive months as is evident from our Changelog. Till date, we have released more than 60 plugin updates out of which 90% of the plugin updates consists some or the other new features for the plugin for the convenience of our clients.

We have successfully achieved this because we have a dedicated team working on the plugins on a regular basis including our support team handling our customer’s queries and try to reply them in a dedicated period of time.

On the other hand, the WooCommerce Order Delivery plugin is just another Extension that the woocommerce.com offers.

So, it’s natural that it receives no special attention from them. This is evident from the fewer updates and far fewer features compared to our Order Delivery Date plugin.

Offers More Value at Less Price

If you can compare the prices, our Order Delivery Date plugin costs $99 for a single site license while the WooCommerce Order Delivery plugin costs $129. Even though the WooCommerce Delivery Date plugin has fewer important features compared to our Order Delivery Date plugin.

Personalized Customer Support

I mention personalized support because at Tyche we have a dedicated support person for handling the customer’s queries for each of our plugins. They mainly interact with each and every customer directly and understand their queries and provide the necessary fix within a dedicated period of time.

Officially our response time is 24 hours but in most cases, we try to respond to all support queries a lot quicker than that. Unlike other plugin developers, We prioritize the bug fixes that our customers report so that a small bug in the plugin will not be a roadblock in our customer’s project.

The cherry on the cake is the Live Chat support that we have recently introduced on our website a rarity in WordPress themes/plugins shops.

Conclusion

Both the Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce and WooCommerce Order Delivery have their share of advantages and disadvantages over each other but a few key points like our delivery date widget, color-coded calendar, various settings based on Shipping Methods, Shipping Class, Product Categories, Pickup Locations, etc. definitely make our Order Delivery plugin a better choice.

And when you consider the most important selection criteria for WordPress plugins like regular plugin updates, quicker and personalized support and the cost of the plugin it is evident that our Order Delivery Date plugin wins handsomely.
