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.

Restrict slots to specific user groups, delivery methods and / or product categories.

Hourly slots between 09:00 and 17:00.
5 minutes slots between 19:00 and 22:00.
