Are you struggling to schedule deliveries in your Shopify store? Is picking a delivery date proving to be a thorn in your side? You’re not alone. Many Shopify store owners face this problem. Thankfully, we've got two solutions: a manual method and a Shopify app that's going to make your life way easier. Let's dive right in!
Solution 1: Create Manually
Manually adding a date picker is like cooking from scratch - rewarding but laborious. Here's how you can create it:
- Open your Shopify theme code.
- Navigate to the page where you want the date picker.
- Insert the following code:
html <input type="date" id="delivery-date" name="delivery-date">
- Customise the code as needed.
- Save and preview your changes.
This method works, but it can be complicated, especially if coding isn't your forte. It's time-consuming and leaves room for errors. There's got to be an easier way, right? Yep, there is!
