How to Add a Date Picker to Schedule Deliveries in Shopify


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:

  1. Open your Shopify theme code.
  2. Navigate to the page where you want the date picker.
  3. Insert the following code:

html <input type="date" id="delivery-date" name="delivery-date"> 

  1. Customise the code as needed.
  2. 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!

Step 6- Add conditions if desired, a great feature for flexibility.

Step 7- Preview on the right side, and design as you like using option style or CSS.

Step 8- Save, click "enabled," and your Date Picker widget is all set!
