Product date restrictions

This feature helps you prevent or allow pickup, delivery or shipping for certain items on specific dates of the year.


Requirements

  • You need to be on the Advanced plan or higher with Store Pickup + Delivery.
  • You need to have the date picker turned on.
  • Availability needs to be set to Every day of the week, or Specific days of the week.
  • If you are using the time picker, the days that your date restrictions fall on need to be enabled under pickup/delivery availability. 
    • Example: Delivery is available on Mon and Fri, but your date restricted product is delivered only on Wed, 2nd of March. In that case, you would need to enable Wed as your delivery day, and add blackout dates for delivery so other products are not available on Wed.

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 not available (blackout date applied)
      • Product A and B in the cart—no dates available
  • Product specific preparation times do not apply to the date restricted products. If you need longer preparation time for your date restricted products, contact us on support@zapiet.com.
  • Delivery times will not show when product date restrictions fall on days when delivery is not available, because no time slots are set up for those days. Make sure your delivery days match the days of your restricted dates. You can use the blackout dates feature to remove those days for your regular products.
