Local Delivery - cost by zip and volume plus ability to schedule add delivery to calendar


Working with a customer that sells bulk rocks. They delivery product locally. Delivery cost is based on location/zip code and which truck delivers (3 truck sizes) So the delivery charge is a matrix of about 46 zips/locations by 3 truck sizes. The size truck is determined by the size of the order.

Looking for a solution that streamlines the delivery pricing.

AND has a calendar that will show available and unavailable day and time delivery. They can handle a limited number of deliveries per day.


There are some add-ons with Shopify and woocommerce that are close. I am looking for an ecwid solution.

thanks

Hi there,

This is Wade from Ecwid Customer Care team. Thank you for your message!

This sort of shipping rate calculation can be done with the help of the Custom rates table.

To create 3 different shipping rates for the different sized trucks you should set the "Table based on" setting to "Weight" and create 3 different ranges for each of the trucks, like on this screenshot:



Now to separating the deliveries into different locations. Using the ZIP code you should group them together into the Destination Zones based on the distance and create a separate custom shipping rate using the guide from above for each of the zones. Please, feel free to checkout this article on our Help Center for more details on the destination zones:

As for the calendar with the date selection, it can be added directly to the product details pages with the help of the "Date Picker" product option. More info on this can be found here: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/a...roduct-options

Hope this proves useful to you! Let me know if any new questions arise, I'll be happy to help.

Hi Eric!

It's Gunter from Ecwid team.
Thank you for the details.

It might be possible to develop this feature: an app for checkout that offers delivery date and time and blocks other dates when certain ones are already chosen. The feature would be based on our API (https://developers.ecwid.com/api-documentation). The creation of such solution will require programming skills. You can either hire a third-party developer for this task, or you can use the services of our Customization Team; they will be happy to help you for an extra fee. You can send your customization request via this form: https://ecwidcom.typeform.com/to/vIlijv

Hope it helps. Feel free to reach out if any other questions arise.
