The scheduled delivery is a feature that allows you to customize delivery times and to set specific deadlines and prices, as well as enables the customers to choose the period when they wish to receive your order.
Eg.: An office supplies store works with delivery shifts and different prices on weekends, and would like to give the customers the chance to choose the day of receivement and in which turn. With the scheduled delivery, this demand can be fulfilled, and here's how:
On Inventory & shipping, access Dashboard and select the desired Carrier to scheduled delivery.
Then on Shipping method, click on Scheduled Delivery.

Using the same situation of the store mentioned above, this would be the carrier configuration suitable to their demand:
Assuming that Inventory time is 2 days, Dock time is 1 day, and Freight Timetable previews 5 days, the first day available for delivery will be 8 days after the date the request was made and, since the maximum delivery time is 10 days, the last day available for customer's choice will be the 18th day after the date the request was made.
So, if today is May 3 and the customer chooses this kind of delivery, the interval to be displayed will be from May 11 to May 21. And, if the customer chooses to receive the product on a Saturday or a Sunday, another R$ 5.00 will also be added to freight.
