This plugin is no longer supported.
Please use its replacement Shipping Delivery Dates.

This plug-in allows a customer to select an order delivery slot from slots configured by the shop owner. Often used in conjunction with our Order Delivery Date plug-in.

From the plug-in the following site wide parameters can be configured.

  • Order cut-off times for selecting a slot.
  • Days of week when delivery slots are offered.
  • Any additional dates (such as special occassions) when delivery slots are available, although they are not normally offered on that particular weekday. For instance a flower shop may not offer Sunday delivery slots but they do on Mothers Day.
  • Dates when delivery slots are not available (e.g. Christmas day) regardless of the day of week.
  • Out of hours order collection from numbered lockers using random 4 digit access code.
  • The maximum number of deliveries available for a slot (with or without lockers).
  • Restrict slots to specific user groups, delivery methods and / or product categories.

Possible scenarios include:

  • Morning, afternoon, evening slots.
  • Hourly slots between 09:00 and 17:00.
  • 5 minutes slots between 19:00 and 22:00.
  • Locker collection between 17:00 and 10:00 on next business day.

A simple example of this can be seen in this demo
