How can I adjust dropshipping processing times to reflect accurate delivery dates?

I am trying to get my store off the ground here and we currently have 98% of our products sourced through a drop-shipper. This specific vendor needs 7-10 business days to process the order prior to shipping however the maximum processing time available is 2 days. Is there a way I can adjust that to reflect the necessary lead times at check-out? For instance, this vendor uses USPS as their shipping carrier but when a customer goes to check-out they see that their item will deliver byOct. 25 however that delivery time is solely based off the delivery time, not the processing time. 


Is there a way I can add the processing time to the delivery time so our customers are receiving the most accurate estimated delivery dates?

To achieve a quicker distribution time for your dropshipping store, stay clear of AlliExpress vendors that use ePackett with commonly 20-30 days shipment times. Instead hire a dropshipping representative that works with carriers designed particularly for eCommerce shops and also will able to hold supply for fast turnaround.

Individuals reward split second fulfillment as existing times move ever quicker with social media sites obstacles and also twitter dramas as well as trends.

There is no option to add a note in the calculated rates from UPS, but you can edit your themes language section to show this message to your customers (see screenshot).




I hope this helps.
