Over a decade of experience in developing plugins, apps, and extensions, we always tend to find solutions for our customers, especially eCommerce business.

Ever-changing market trends keep store owners thinking about how they are going to integrate new changes in their store.

The development of individual features for your store is expensive and time-consuming.

To avoid this long, expensive route, we developed apps that offer exact features you are looking for at a very affordable price.

The apps we are going to discuss are made keeping in mind the high customer demand. Let’s start.

1. Delivery Dates and Shipping Rates

One of the most loved apps by Shopify store owners is Delivery Date and Shipping Rates. The app comes with multiple delivery options and date/time selections.

Our app gives you three different types of delivery methods:

1. Standard Shipping

2. Store Pickup

3. Local Delivery

Whether you use one, two, or all three types of delivery, we offer delivery date and time pickers for all three.

The delivery calendar is totally customizable. From restricting the preparation time to restricting the order number, everything is covered.

If you don’t deliver on some days, configure the non-working days, and the app will block those days to restrict users from choosing those. Thus, enjoy your vacation with no pending orders.

Every business has a certain limit of orders that they can fulfill in a day. So, simply set how many orders you would want in a day, and once the counter hits, the date will be restricted, and no other customer can choose that day for delivery.

The next step is shipping rates. Whether you have a fixed shipping rate or a dynamic, you can configure both these on our app. Based on delivery location and delivery date, customize different shipping rates for your customer.

Feature Highlights:

  • Multiple delivery options: Store Pickup, Local Delivery, and Shipping
  • Delivery date and time picker with rescheduling feature
  • Default and dynamics shipping rates
  • Restrict preparation time and non-working days from the calendar
