With the Shipping Calendar extension you can allow your customers to choose when their orders are delivered. Create delivery slots that match when your carrier can deliver orders and specify which of these are available. Shipping Calendar gives you the option to display available delivery days over a set period using a monthly calendar. Display available delivery slots with a bullet-pointed list with dates and shipping rates – giving your customers the freedom to select delivery times that suit them.
You can also define 'blackout dates' for public holidays and other days when orders cannot be delivered, and allocate 'production days' for items that you have to make or prepare.
This extension is invaluable for any store that needs someone to be home for delivery: florists, food stores, furniture stores, electronics and more.
Shipping Calendar also includes all the functionality of our Product Matrix extension, so you can fully customise your shipping rates to meet your business needs.
Each purchase of Shipping Calendar comes with complimentary Gold support.
This extension will work out of the box with standard Magento One Page Checkout and also the official One Step Checkout extension.
