1. Magento 2 Order Delivery Date and Time Extension by BSSCommerce
Magento 2 Order Delivery Date and Time extension can be understood as a module which supports clients choose order delivery date and time in the checkout process.
In the frontend, Magento 2 Order Delivery Date and Time Extension offers three main fields, those are Delivery Date, Delivery Time Slots, Delivery Arrival Comments for customers to complete their Magento 2 order delivery date. In a given calendar in Magento 2, customers are allowed to choose a day as an expecting order delivery date. With Delivery Time Slots, customers can choose which time slots to receive products as they want. In Delivery Arrival Comment, they are able to leave any extra information about their order delivery. Especially, when clients checkout with PayPal or Braintree, they can select Delivery Date on Review Order Page.
In the backend, admin has ability to manage delivery date and time easier than before when only running Magento 2 default. At first, admin can set the position to display order delivery date at one of the following fields: Shipping Address, Shipping Method or Review and Payments. Secondly, Processing Time which shows client know the number of days will be taken after(x) day(s) upon the date order(s) made is supported to display but still limited. Cut-off Time is a time that if customers place orders after this time the date when orders made will be counted as the following day is enabled to be set. Besides, holidays, exclude days and blackout days also can be added by admin. In addition, admin can freely add delivery date, time slots in such a way that brings the most convenient shipping method for both admin and customers. In each confirmed email sending to clients, delivery information will be included to confirm and remind clients about the delivery once again.
2. Delivery Date for Magento 2 by MageComp
Like Magento 2 Order Delivery Date and Time by BSSCommerce, Delivery Date for Magento 2 by MageComp also allows customers to choose delivery date as wish. But Magento 2 delivery date extension by MageComp seems like offering less features than the extension by BSSCommerce.
In the Frontend, customers are able to set up delivery date easily in a calendar view with available options. Although this module does not support to choose delivery time slot, customers still can select the most suitable delivery date and time to receive their order with particular hour by minute. However, we think this feature is not necessary and may make a mess and trouble to manage delivery time for admin. Delivery Comment box is available for customers to leave messages as well.
Configuration in the backend of this extension is quite limited with only three more extra fields to configure, those are Holidays/Exclude Days, Delivery Time Span and Delivery Interval.
One can say that Delivery Date for Magento 2 by Amasy is the most outstanding extension for Magento 2 order date. To compare with Magento 2 order date by BSSCommerce, the extension by Amasty only does not support to choose delivery date when customers checkout with PayPal or Braintree. However looking at other features, this delivery date extension offers not only the same functions with the module by BSSCommerce but also more great characteristics than any current Magento 2 delivery date and time extension in the market that we will list below.
In the frontend, this delivery date extension allows customers to reschedule delivery date after an order is placed as well as choose Interval time.
In the Backend, Processing Time sector is more advanced with Minimal and Maximal Delivery Interval options. Information about delivery date and time can be set to be included in three types of email, there are order confirmation emails, Invoice emails and Shipment emails. Especially, admin can configure to enable reminder that reminds clients about the delivery with email. Moreover, Delivery Date for Magento 2 by Amasty supports to set Quota Per Day that defines how many deliveries per day your store can make, after the limit is exceeded, the day will become unavailable for delivery.
4. Delivery Date – Magento 2 by Magentodelight
Indeed, Magento 2 Delivery Date extension by Magentodelight is not inferior comparing with Magento 2 date and time extension by Amasty and BSSCommerce. Its functions are simple but very useful with aim to help customers select delivery date as per the convenience.
For customers, with calendar view and Delivery Time Slots, they can set time slot or specific date without delivery time. Delivery Comment field supports extra function that is Call before delivery. This Magento 2 delivery date and time extension does not support to choose delivery date when customers checkout with PayPal or Braintree but allows customers to edit delivery date after an order placement.
For admin, beside these features like setting Cut-off Time, Holidays/Exclude Days, Time Slots, Disable Delivery Date, Date Fields and Minimal Maximal Interval Time, adding delivery date information to email, Magento 2 Delivery Date extension by Magentodelight has been updated and improved with more new functions. There are selecting customer groups to access delivery date facility, setting maximum delivery quota for each time slot and maximum quota per day, setting price for each time slot, setting number of days to send reminder before delivery and changing delivery date set by customers.
