Bakery preorder scheduling

I'm building a Shopify site for a bakery so customers can preorder baked goods online for pickup or delivery (no shipping at this time) on a future date.

 

I think I've solved the issue of scheduling the pickups/deliveries with Zapiet Pickup + Delivery, but I need a way to limit the number of preorders we can accept per day per collection. For example, weekends are very busy for cakes, so we have to set a daily limit to avoid overbooking, but cake production needs to be independent of say, croissants, so when cakes hit their limit it doesn't also cut off croissant preorders.

 

Is there an app or other workaround that will allow us to set automatic collection-level (or product-level) inventories for each day of the week or month?

Hi @Myrrhe,

 

Dani here from Shopify. Thanks for writing in!

 

That's awesome that you were able to schedule the pickup/deliveries with Zapiet.

 

In terms of the inventories, I believe Stock Sync would work for you. You can set daily inventories that automatically reset each day, or however long you choose. For this feature, you would need to be on the Basic ($5/month) Stock Sync plan.

 

It's really cool that you've been able to help other merchants adapt to the current situation by setting them up online. Are you a developer? Have you worked on many Shopify stores before? I'd love to hear about your experience so far!

 

All the best,

 

Dani

Thanks, Dani. I'll take a look at Stock Sync and let you know if it works out or not.

 

I'm actually not a developer—I help run the bakery I'm working on this site for.

So after talking with Stock Sync, it does not solve the overbooking issue we are running in to.
