    How to configure the Prestashop Marketplace Delivery Time Slot module

    After the successful installation of the module, an admin needs to configure the module.

    In order to understand the process to configure the module clearly, let’s just go through every option one by one.

    Time Slot

    • Time Slot: On enabling this option, your customers will get an option to choose the preferred time slot for the delivery.
    • Minimum Time Gap: Enter the time gap that you want your customers to choose between the time slot.

    For example: If you keep the minimum time gap as 20. Then, your customers must select a time slot that has a gap of 20 or more than 20 minutes.

    Say a customer selects a time slot of 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Then, it’d be okay as the time slot contains more than 20 minutes gap.

    Whereas, if a customer tries to select the time slot as 10:00 AM to 10:19 AM. Then, in this a case, a customer will see an error message.

    Day Slot & Date Slot

    • Day Slot: Enable this option to let your customer select a day as the preferred delivery slot.
    • Date Slot: This option will allow your customers to select a date as the preferred delivery slot.
    • Minimum Time Lead: Enter the minimum time lead in days. The minimum time lead ensures that a customer can choose a delivery date after the minium time lead only.

    Let me just explain with an example to make it clearer.

    Say you keep the minimum time lead as 5 days. Now, a customer begins to select a preferred delivery date on the checkout page.

    Now, what they will observe? They will observe that they can only select that delivery date which is 5 days after today.

    For example: Say, today is 16th August. Now on the checkout page, your customers would only be able to select a delivery date as 21st August or any date after that.

    Configure Marketplace Delivery Time Slot

    Note: You can either enable the date slot or day slot. Both of them can not remain active at the same time.

    The workflow of the Prestashop Marketplace Delivery Time Slot module

    Case 1:

    Firstly, we are only enabling the “Time Slot” option.

    time slot is only active

    So, now on the checkout page, a customer would only get the option to select a delivery time slot.

    After selecting a delivery time slot, a customer also needs to save the delivery time slot details.

    select time slot functionality available on the checkout page

    In the image below, an error message is appearing. This is happening because the selected time slot has a gap less than the minimum time gap.

    After placing the order, the delivery time lost details are also available on the order details page.

    customer dashboard

    Delivery time slot details at the customer order details page

    You may notice in the image below that an option to update the delivery time slot details is still available.

    This is because the admin did not update the order status yet.

    Note: If the order status is in delivered, shipped or cancelled state, then a customer can not update the delivery time slot.

    Now, an admin is updating the order status to “Shipped“.

    Hence, now a customer would not get the option to update the delivery time slot.

    Case 2:

    In this case, we are enabling the time & day slot options both.

    time slot & day slot both active

    Now, on the checkout page, a customer will get an option to select the preferred delivery day as well as the time.

    Again, the option to update delivery slot details are available on the customer order details page. However, it’d not be available after the admin updates the order status.

    Case 3:

    In this particular case, we are enabling the time slot as well as the date slot option.

    date slot & time slot both active

    So, after enabling the time & date slot option, both are available to the customer on the checkout page.

    You may also notice that customer is only able to select a delivery date that is 5 days after the current date.

    choose date slot

    After selecting the date & time of the delivery, save the details.

    Choose time & date slot

    Now, the same details are also available on the customer order details page too.

    Delivery slot selection with products of multiple sellers

    In case, if a customer adds products of multiple sellers in the cart. Then, delivery slot selection for each seller will be available separately.

    The functionalities of delivery date/day selection will work in the same manner as described earlier.

    Seller wise delivery slot functionality

    After placing the order, two different orders will create.

    The delivery slot details for each product will be available on their respective seller order details page.

    seller 1 order details page
    seller 2 order details page

    At the admin’s end

    Two different orders will also be available on the admin’s end.

    two orders created at the admins end

    In the same way as above, delivery slot details will be available for each product on their respective order details page.

    seller 1 admin order details page
    seller 2 admin order details page

    So, this was all about the Prestashop Marketplace Delivery Time Slot module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way.
