How can I offer future ship dates for gifts in my online store?

1 0 0

I would like to offer a future ship date within our Shopify store. More specifically, I would like to give customers the option to ship a gift at some point in the future so they can pre-plan for the Holidays and take advantage of pre-order discounts. Say, for example, I want to order a gift for someone today to check it off my list, but don't want it shipped until a week before Christmas. Is that possible via app or otherwise?

Hi @Phil_at_GB 


I am not 100% sure how far the pre-order dates can go, but there is an app called Zapiet - Pickup + Delivery. This app allows you to have future delivery dates for items purchased. Like I said, I have no idea if it can go several months in the future. 

Our app integrates with them and most of our clients go 14-30 days in the future. I would suggest reaching out to them and asking. 


Hope that helps!

Hi @Phil_at_GB , Just curious if you found a solution for this. Everything I see is to schedule a "delivery" date -- since I will be shipping I don't want to / can't commit to an exact "delivery" date, but I would also like to be able to accept orders now for future holidays and occasions.
