Delivery Date & Time Slots for Ecommerce

Hi all,

We are looking to offer a client the possibility of local delivery for food and drink hampers but this requires a date and time picker at the checkout (currently not available), and then integration with a calendar for order planning.

Does anyone know any good workarounds or suitable plugins to achieve local delivery.

Hugely appreciate any help!

Also interested in how we add a date picker!

It’s do-able. I’ve done it for two clients already.
You need to use a workaround. Create your specific field with an embed component that you insert in your checkout form and enables the user to select the delivery slots. You then feed the value of this to one of webflow’s additionnal input or textarea (which allows it to be in the confirmation emails and sent with the order).
For the delivery slots available you can use a CMS collection. And in your checkout populate your select (or whatever) from this wf CMS collection. You can even filter with CMS filters to have a range of “available slots” by setting from D-0 to D+5 for instance.

Here’s an example :

I’ve used jquery. But you could use plain old js or whatever js framework I guess. Even some Ajax if you want to load the delivery slots only at a specific moment…

Hi Dorian,

Thank you for this and reassuring us. We are looking to implement this feature in one of our upcoming projects but do not have an experienced JS dev in our studio - do you have good experience implementing this kind feature as we would love to get a quote.

Let us know!

Hi @tjthomsonjones ,

Unfortunately I only develop this sort of workarounds for clients whose site I’m managing since I can’t guarantee this workaround will work forever… (if webflow makes an update that idles this way of doing… for instance)

But you’re welcome to reverse engineer what I did.
