Blackout dates prevent customers from selecting delivery on specific dates of the year. This is useful for holidays, or other specific days when your shop is closed.

Limitations

  • Blackout dates will not be applied to your date restricted products if the date restricted product is the only one in the cart. If your customer has a mixed cart in this scenario, they will not be able to check out.

    • Example: Product A is a regular product with a blackout date on March 1st. Product B is a date restricted product, available only on March 1st.

      • Product B only in the cart—March 1st available (blackout date not applied)

      • Product A only in the cart—March 1st is not available (blackout date applied)

      • Product A and B in the cart—no dates available
