How To Set Up Holidays And Closed Periods

Your store might not be able to make deliveries constantly, so if there are days or periods of time when deliveries shouldn’t be made, you can set up holidays.

These holidays can be repeatable and can apply to as many or as few of your shipping/collection methods as you like. 

To set a holiday up, take the following steps:

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, go to WooCommerce > Delivery Slots and click the Holidays tab.holidays tab
  2. Once there, you’ll see various fields to help you set up your holiday. We’ll go through each in turn:
    1. From and To: Use these fields to pick your holiday dates. Click in each and a date picker will appear. For single days, just enter a date in the ‘From’ field. For ranges, enter a ‘From’ and ‘To’ date. Ranges are up to and including the dates you enter.from and to
    2. Shipping Methods: In this section, you can click the checkbox next to each shipping method you’d like your holiday to apply to. shipping methods
