This seems to be an open topic for a few years so Im hoping that shopify (or someone) has created a solution to show different lead times to our products
there are some apps that have a warning notification which the customer needs to click (creates friction) and others that only show a different lead time in the product page but not in the check out (false expectation at check out)
neither of those creates a proper experience
Appreciate your tips or solutions
I think a good approach would be to share what you'd like to be the best solution, and 2nd best solution.
Then we can try to create a solution for you.
This is a niche use-case, so explaining what you'd like exactly for your store will open up possibilities for a developer to solve your problem.
Thank you Joe
The most practical solution would be to have the ability to select an order processing lead time for each product or collection within shopify... and that this order processing lead time is shown throughout the checkout process
Right now, customers only see the estimated shipping time. In the new solution, it should show processing + shipping time
This is hardly a niche use case. The vast majority of merchants have multiple sources for their products and we will all benefit from creating a good experience for our customers
Please let me know if the above makes sense and if you need more info
Thank you again
This is exactly what I'm looking for!
With supply lines being what they are right now we have certain products that have lead times of 6-8 weeks based on when we can even get materials. Other products are 2-4 weeks, 1-2 weeks etc. Being able to have this information displayed in every place the customer touches would be ideal. On the product page, under each order in the cart, confirmations, etc. An overarching shipping policy just doesn't cut it and I can't find an app that does this (I found a pop-up warning one but otherwise it's all shipping.) Is there anything like this out there that I'm missing?
