Add additional information to your customers checkout experience with Estimated Delivery Dates!
Using a simple naming convention for your shipping methods, this customization will calculate each shipping methods estimated delivery date. This customization takes into account all Federal holidays and weekends, allowing for an astute delivery date.
The naming convention requires that you set specific day ranges for each of your delivery methods, which is then translated into actual dates for your customer.
What it does
Get estimated delivery dates based on shipping times. This customization uses a shipping method naming convention, that includes the estimated shipping times for each shipping method. From this range (ex. 7-10 days), this customization will calculate the estimate delivery date taking into account weekends and holidays. Uses same day shipping as a presumption, but can be changed to also include shipping processing times as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it know what days to use?
These are set in the name of the Shipping Method. The estimator then takes that range, and adds it to the current date, adding additional days for holidays and weekends.
Does this connect to my shipping provider's API?
No. Estimated date rangers are set by the store owner.
Does this work on international shipping methods too?
Does this include processing days?
Not inherently, but can be set to do so.
