FedEx WooCommerce – estimated delivery time

To add estimated delivery information in WooCommerce you have to configure the plugin with your FedEx account. Learn how to get the FedEx API key.

If you have your plugin configured and connected with FedEx API, you can go to WooCommerce→SettingsShipping→FedEx and move to Dates & Time section.

FedEx WooCommerce - dates & time

In Estimated Delivery, you have two options available:

FedEx WooCommerce estimated delivery

Show estimated days to delivery date – the plugin will display estimated delivery time in the number of days. 

Show estimated delivery date – the plugin will display estimated delivery as an expected date.

Adjust estimated delivery calculation

All the information about the estimated delivery date is based on information from FedEx API. But what if you want to adjust them to the way your store works? That’s why we added advanced options connected with an estimated delivery.

FedEx WooCommerce dates & time settings

Lead Time allows you to define how many days are required to prepare an order for shipment. The delivery date or time will be updated for the selected number of days. This way your clients will know exactly when they will get the packages based not only on FedEx API but also based on the time that you need to prepare an order. 

Another useful feature is Cutoff Time. It allows you to define on what time you stop preparing orders. So, after that time it will add one day to estimated delivery. It can be used only when Lead Time is set as 0. 

Maximum Time in Transit

This feature won’t affect the estimated delivery calculation, but it can be very useful. It allows you to define the maximum number of days that goods can be in transit. FedEx WooCommerce plugin will show only those FedEx shipping services that will fit into that time. This feature will be especially useful for perishable goods.

Blackout Lead Days

If you are not shipping packages in every day, you can exclude certain days of the week from estimated delivery time or date. Choose the days of the week on which you do not send parcels in the multi-select box. All the selected days will be excluded from the delivery estimation.
