Configure Delivery Date Extension in Magento 2

How to Add Delivery Date to the Checkout Page in Magento 2 with Time?

Online shopping has plenty of benefits. For starters, it makes it super easy for consumers to compare prices, avoid waiting at the checkout counter, and even get better deals & discounts.

But despite all the benefits, there is a downside of it as well.

In most cases, for example, consumers can’t control when their order will be delivered. And when there is a lack of guaranteed delivery date & time, consumers often get frustrated & end up abandoning their shopping carts.

According to Baymard Institute Report, approximately 18% of potential customers abandon their shopping carts because either the delivery was too slow or there was no guaranteed delivery date provided by the online shopping website.cx 5fc
