Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce v9.27.0 update

Our last major update for Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce plugin was v9.25.0 & this time we’ve come up with some epic performance changes in the latest release of our plugin. Say hello to Order Delivery Date Pro for WooComerce v9.27.0 which is now available for all our customers! We were finally able to release it on 3rd August 2021, and we’re very excited to share this update with all of you. So, here are all the new things that we’ve worked on for this update:

1. Removing unnecessary ajax calls 

We have removed 2 of the ajax calls i.e orddd_get_zone_id and check_for_time_slot_orddd . The third ajax call that we made a change to was orddd_update_delivery_session. We converted it to WC Ajax and now it is only called when category-based custom settings are applied on checkout.

So what does all of this mean for non-developers who are using our plugin?

It means that now, with these performance changes, there will be an improvement in the load time. It will ensure that your site performs faster & better for a customer who is trying to fill in their details on the Checkout Page.

Here’s a quick look at the load time between the older version of the plugin, which is v9.26.1, and the newer version, which is v9.27.0.

2. Filter delivery orders based on Shipping methods on the Delivery Calendar page

If you go to your Delivery Calendar Page, then you find a newly added shipping methods dropdown over there. Once you’re there, you can filter your delivery orders based on shipping methods easily! Here’s how it will appear once you got to Order Delivery Date > Delivery Calendar:
