Shipping date setup

After installing the plugin, go to the WooCommerce > Shipping

In there go inside each shipping zones that you have, and inside them open, each of the shipping classes and insert Minimum and Maximum delivery time for that particular shipping class,

Shipping Zone
Shipping Class

Product preparation time: (PRO)

You can set product preparation days (Time: means the number of days, if your product takes 12 hr to make you have to enter 1 day ) for the individual product (in product edit form in each product)

This product preparation time is added in the shipping time given by your shipping company to give an estimated time

If you have large number of product this can be time consuming, so we have Quick edit option for this “Product preparation time” field

If you have large number of products and you want to update the product preparation time using CSV import then you can do that using the WooCommerce built in Import/Export feature

Just follow the instruction given in here
https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/product-csv-importer-exporter/

and the Custom field name that stores the product preparation time is “product_preparation_time

Product preparation days for single product

Preparation days for variable product (pro)

You can set a different preparation days for each of the variations in a variable product

Or you can set one preparation days for all the variation in a product

If you are setting a preparation days on each variation then it wont show the estimate time in the product loop page, it will only show the time once user comes to product page and select some variation

For Variable Product
Quick edit option of Product preparation days

Default shipping zone:

You have to insert minimum and maximum delivery days for each of the shipping class.

You have to select one shipping zone as default shipping zone in your plugin setting. without this we cant decide the shipping zone of the customer and cant show estimate.

So when you select one shipping zone as default we do the calculation based on that shipping zone till the time customer select his own shipping zone

This default shipping zone is selected from the option Default shipping zone inside the Basic setting tab


Show the best/worst estimate delivery time

Using this you can either show minimum time that will be taken to deliver or maximum time that will be taken for delivery.

Shipping zone not selected: when the customer has not selected shipping zone then it will extract all the shipping class from the default shipping zone that you selected in the above setting.

If you have selected minimum estimate, then it will take out the minimum number from the shipping class and use the smallest to calculate the shipping date

Shipping zone is selected: If shipping zone is selected by the customer, then it will extract the minimum and maximum days from that particular shipping class and show either minimum or the maximum one based on your selection


Date format:

Free version only support one date format that is Year/month/date

PRO version offers around 9 different date formats


A range of delivery date:

This Shows a range of delivery date, with Best and Worst estimate.

E.G: Estimated delivery between March 21 – March 26


Insert the estimated date in order detail:

This only available in PRO version 3.0.3 and above, once you enable this option all the product estimate will be included in the order details and order email. By default this option is disabled.

Select days of the week when your shipping is closed:

Say your shipping company gives you shipping estimate as 7 Working days, Now they say they don’t work on Sundays, so our plugin gives you option to select Sunday, so it wont be counted in calculating the estimated date. You can select other days as well, say your company don’t work on Friday then you can select that as well.

Last shipping time of the day: (PRO)

Say, you ship product every day and your last shipping time is 2 PM after that, you don’t ship product, you ship them next date. So using this option you can set that time say your set it 2 PM, So when user comes to your site before 2 PM they will see the estimate date as counted from today (as you can ship the product today). And when user comes to site after 2 PM they will see the estimate counted from Tomorrow ( as you cant ship product today as last shipping time is gone past that was 2 PM).

If you leave this blank then it will count the estimate time from tomorrow
