Creating Delivery Times in Shopware 6

The system will redirect you to a new screen, where you can specify the following information:
Provide the name of your new interval. Shopware 6 uses it to display the delivery time on the product details page. After that, you need to take care of dynamic calculations that take place in the shopping cart and checkout. Specify the information unit. The system lets you use days, weeks, months, or years. After that, you need to set up a minimum and maximum interval. Note that only integers are relevant. Shopware 6 relies on this information to determine delivery dates automatically.
Assigning a Delivery Time to a Product
It is possible to assign a delivery interval to a product. Go to the Products screen, select a record you want to assign a delivery time to, proceed to the Deliverability section, and choose one of the delivery times. After that, the specified information is displayed on the product details page.

Delivery Times in the Shopping Cart
Now, let’s see how to show the delivery time in the shopping cart. This information displays dynamically, indicating a date range in which the delivery is expected. The period calculation incorporates the current date and the data provided in the delivery interval.
To enable the delivery times display in the shopping cart, go to Settings -> Shop -> Cart Settings and activate the corresponding toggle.
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:
The checkout page incorporates delivery times like this:
