Use Next Available Date for Products

ShipperHQ has the ability to account for availability date on individual products when calculating calendar based rates or estimated delivery dates, allowing merchants to open up their store to support pre-order, backorders, or sold-out ordering.

On both Magento 1 and Magento 2, you can set the product attribute ‘Availability Date’ (attribute code is shipperhq_availability_date) to the date the product will be available.

If you don’t see this attribute on your shipping tab, you can follow these instructions to add the attribute to your products.

ShipperHQ will then take this date into account when calculating the available dispatch date for the cart or order, and will be reflected in the estimated or available delivery dates.
