All the information about the estimated delivery date is based on information from UPS API. But with our plugin, you can adjust them to the way your store works and get full control. Here are the available options:
Lead Time allows you to set how many days are required to prepare an order for shipment. The delivery date or time will be calculated based on that information. This will make estimated delivery calculation much more accurate and adapted to the functioning of your shop.
Another great feature is Cutoff Time. It allows you to set on what time you stop preparing orders. After that hour, the plugin will automatically add one day to estimated delivery. Please have in mind that it will work only when Lead Time is set as 0.
Maximum Time in Transit won’t affect the estimated delivery calculation, but could limit the available services. With that option you can set a maximum number of days that goods can be in transit. UPS WooCommerce plugin will show only those UPS shipping services that will fit into that time. This feature will be especially useful for perishable goods.
What if you are not shipping every day? It’s a very important information that should affect the estimated delivery date. With our plugin you can exclude certain days of the week from it. 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.
