Minimum working days – The minimum number of days it takes you to process an order. If you can do it in less than 24 hours, leave this field to zero.

Shipping days – The shipping days and their time limit to ship orders. You can set the time limit to process an order on the same day.
Please, follow these rules to configure the setting correctly:

  • Working days and shipping days are considered the same. Therefore, if you do not work on Sundays, disable this day.
  • Disabled days are not counted as working days.
  • Disable specific dates using the Shipping Calendar.
  • If the day is enabled and a customer makes an order before the time limit, we assume that you can start to process this order on the current day.
  • Otherwise, the order will be postponed to the next enabled day.

NOTE: It’s important to configure your WordPress timezone correctly. The Shipping Days setting use your WordPress local time to calculate the time limit.

The shipping date is set to the first enabled day after the minimum working days.
