Customer Journey

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:

Order Delivery Date)

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 the 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):

General Configuration

Order Delivery Date)

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.

Order Delivery Date)

The selected day in the First day of the week field will appear in the first column of the date selection Calendar on the checkout page for selecting a delivery date. Eg: If Monday is selected, the Delivery Date Calendar will appear as:

Order Delivery Date)

The first day is Monday here

The selected values/days in the Excluded days field won't be available for selection on the front-end date selection calendar. Eg: Saturday and Sunday are selected, the Delivery Date Calendar will have all weekends unavailable for picking:

Order Delivery Date)

Saturday and Sunday are excluded

If you want to manually exclude any date for selection under Calendar appearing on the frontend, you can specify the date in the Excluded Dates. Eg: on 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:

Order Delivery Date)

Then on the frontend, the customer will observe:

Processing Days

Order Delivery Date)

You need to specify the number of Default processing days which takes an order to get processed. 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:

Order Delivery Date)

Extend processing days, if Enabled, will exclude the dates specified above as excluded; those days or dates won't appear as a selection in the Calendar. Eg: If the current Date is 25th Feb, the Default Processing Days = 4, Excluded Days = Saturday & Sunday. The default 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):

Order Delivery Date)

Product-based Configuration

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 orders for specific products.

You will be able to find this attribute option on any product detail page configuration in the backend:

Order Delivery Date)

From here, you can define the numeric values for the number of days it takes for processing the order of a particular product.

How will this affect the delivery date selection on the 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 the first available date as selection after 3 days (picks highest processing days value from all products in cart and module configuration)
