Set shipping rates to specific days during the week or to a specific time of day
Using our template language, we can customize when to show a shipping rate in numerous ways. One is to only show the rate on a particular day of the week or even on a specific time of day.
Sometimes it may be necessary to create a limit to when a shipping rate should be available to customers in checkout. This can be created in Webshipper using conditions on the shipping rate.
To use this feature, enable "Advanced" expressions for a shipping rate.
Here you need to use the WEL variables:
and hour_of_day (from 0 to 24)
and day_of_week (1 to 7, starting with Monday)
price >= 499 and price <= 999999999 and weight >= 0 and
weight <= 999999999 and (delivery_address.zip in 1000-4999)
and day_of_week in 5 and hour_of_day in 12-24
In the example above the rate will only be shown when:
- the checkout price exceeds 499
- in zip codes 1000-4999 (learn more about zip codes here)
- on Fridays between 12 noon and midnight
