Order Delivery Date
The Order Delivery Date module allows an option for the customer to select the delivery date for the order they are placing; the date when they would like to receive the order.
Both Composer and ZIP archive installations are supported.
Make a backup!
Direct installation of Magento extensions onto your production web site is not recommended or supported. We advise you to install this on a development version of your web site first to ensure correct operation with your particular Magento installation.
In addition, we advise you to make a complete backup of your Magento system (application files and database) before proceeding.
Order Delivery Date is compatible with the following Magento platforms:
|Community Edition (Open Source)||Enterprise Edition (Commerce)||Cloud Edition|
|2.3.0 - 2.4.*||2.3.0 - 2.4.*||2.3.0 - 2.4.*|
If the module is enabled and the required configuration has been completed, then on the front-end checkout page, the Delivery date selection will appear:
Users can select the delivery date from available dates on which they would like to receive their orders.
The user won't be able to progress on the next step/payment method selection without selecting a date from Calendar.
After the user has placed the order, the selected delivery date will appear on the order detail page in Admin (in Sales → Orders → [Order Number] → Information):
To access the configuration of the module, select Stores → Configuration → AITOC EXTENSIONS → Order Delivery Date from within the admin panel:
Also, you can go to Admin → AITOC → Order Delivery Date → Configuration to access module configuration:
To start using this module, you'll need to Enable it. This allows you to enable or disable the functionality on a per-website basis.
The selected day in the First day of the week field will appear in the first column of date selection Calendar on checkout page for selecting a delivery date. Eg: If Monday is selected, the Delivery Date Calendar will appear as:
The selected values/days in the Excluded days field won't be available for selection on front-end date selection calendar. Eg: Saturday and Sunday are selected, the Delivery Date Calendar will have all wekends unavailable for picking:
If you want to manually exclude any date for selection under Calendar appearing on front-end, you can specify the date in the Excluded Dates. Eg: the 3rd of March 2020, you have a holiday or for whatever reason your business can't deliver goods. You need to add this date manually:
Then on the fronend the customer will observe:
You need to specify the number of Default processing days which takes an order to get process. Eg: if it takes 2 days to process an order, then you need to enter 2 here. So, if the current date is 25th Feb 2020 and you have entered 2 as default processing days, then on the frontend the first available delivery date will be Feb 28th:
Extend processing days, if Enabled, will exclude the dates specified ablove as excluded; that days or dates won't appear as a selection in Calendar. Eg: If the current Date is 25th Feb, the Default Processing Days = 4, Excluded Days = Saturday & Sunday. The defult 4 days interval finishes on Monday and based on this setting it will be either count weekends (Extend Processing Day disabled) or not (Extend Processing Day enabled):
When the module is installed, it adds a new attribute "Processing Time (days)" (dt_processing_time). This attribute allows adding value for the delay it takes for processing order for specific products.
You will be able to find this attribute option on any product detail page configuration in the backend:
From here, you can define the numeric values for the number of days it takes for processing the order of particular product.
How this will affect the delivery date selection on checkout page?
Let's look at the particular example.So, for instance, for any specific product, you have set Processing Time (days) as 2 and in the module configuration, the "Default processing days" field has been specified as 3. Then on the frontend, if the product has been added to the cart, the delivery date calendar will display first available date as selection after 5 days (3 days of default processing time + 2 days for specific product processing time)
