Another factor considered in the calculation is the restocking time. However, it is only applied to products without stock.

For instance, your current date is 01.01.2021. You have 10 products in stock. The product delivery time for the chosen item is 1-3 days. If a customer orders 10 or less items, the estimated delivery period is between 02.01.2021 and 04.01.2021.

However, if the ordered quantity is more than 10, the restocking time is incorporated. Let’s assume that it is 3 days. Thus, Shopware 6 adds this interval to the previous calculation. As a result, the estimated delivery period is between 05.01.2021 and 07.01.2021.

In the shopping cart, everything looks as follows:
