(BONUS) Allowing only a certain number of product X to be delivered per day and/or timeslot

..that one is probably a bit more difficult to implement, but it would make the plugin perfect for food ordering services of all kinds (or other stuff thats produced just in time): Beeing able to set maximum deliveries per day or timeslot for each product individually (or at least per product category..)

    This is feature would be a big win for us. Would love to see this make it into the product. The ability to limit the number of items shipped per day/timeslot is something that we really need for our new site launch.

  2. This feature might be very helpful. We give the delivery service for pizza and sometimes there are too many products in the order and the delivery come with delay.

    Agreed. For food ordering (Fish and Chip portions etc) a total number of products allowed in a timeslot would be really helpful.

    Without a control over the product order size in a slot alternative rules have to be set up to cover this… like limiting individual order size for a shipping type) and this leads to a reduced capacity.

    This would be amazing I have 2 clients begging for this functionality

    This would be a game changer – as it stands we cannot reliably fill every time slot to full capacity – we’re limited by products we can produce rather than number of orders and have to use a messy number of orders/max order size workaround…

    This is exactly what we need for our pizza pop-up series! We can only sell two pizzas every fifteen minutes, and these can be bought by two customers buying one pizza each, or one customer buying both.

    Thank you.

    Great this has started. Is there any date on the expected release for this?

    I have a client who has requested this also. He sells hot chocolate bombs. He wants to set a cutoff of say, 100 bombs (not 100 orders), and once that’s hit, the pickup date (he doesn’t ship) gets pushed back another day. Every night at midnight the shipping date would reset, but if it goes over 100 orders, it would push to the next day and anything over that 100 from the previous day would be added to that day’s counter. In theory, this would continue to push back that pick up date farther and farther (he’s got a 6 day turn around now I think), so he’s also asked for a way to reset it or change it manually so it doesn’t just keep pushing farther and farther-in case he manages to catch up on orders.

    have you started implementing this functionality? because I was working on implementing it and maybe I found a relatively simple solution for my case. that is to ask the customer first the number of pizzas / dishes he wants to order and associate this number to the slot he chooses from the reservation table

      Hey, we do have development underway for this which is essentially complete. There’s some more testing required.
