Create A Same Day and Next Day Delivery Setup

Intuitive Shipping has partnered with Store Pickup + Delivery by Zapiet to give you complete control over how customers qualify for Same Day and Next Day Delivery and how much they get charged!

This guide will walk you through how to set up a Same Day/ Next Day delivery option for your customers.

You must have both the Store Pickup + Delivery and Intuitive Shipping apps installed and active in your Shopify store to take advantage of this setup.

You will need at least two (2) Shipping Scenarios to complete this setup – one for your Same Day delivery Scenario and one for your Next Day delivery Scenario (or more, depending on your Shipping strategy).

Set Up Store Pickup + Delivery

Follow Zapiet’s Guide to integrate Intuitive Shipping into Store Pickup + Delivery.

Once you have completed the integration process, return to the Intuitive Shipping app.

Add A Same Day Scenario

1) Click Shipping on the main menu, then select Scenarios from the drop-down list.

2) Add a Shipping Scenario.

3) Set Visibility to On.

When Visibility is set to Off, Shipping Methods from this Scenario will only be visible when you use the customer name ‘Intuitive Shipping’ at checkout. Learn more about Visibility settings here.

4) Enter the Shipping Scenario Title as ‘Same Day Delivery’ or something similar.

The Shipping Scenario Title is not visible to customers, but it helps keep you organized within the Intuitive Shipping app.

Set The Same Day Condition

1) Leave the settings under Condition MatchProduct Filtering, and Advanced Options on their Default settings.

2) Click the Add Another Condition button.

3) Click the Condition field, then select Day of the week from the Delivery Conditions group.

4) Set the Condition logic to Equals.

5) Check the box beside Today.

Add A Same-Day Shipping Method

1) In the Shipping Methods section, click Add Shipping Method beside a Shipping Zone that qualifies for same-day shipping rates.

Shipping Zones are created in your Shopify Settings and synced with Intuitive Shipping. Learn how to adjust your Shipping Zones here.

2) Create a Title for your Shipping Method – e.g. ‘Same Day Delivery’.

Shipping Method Titles are visible to your customers.

3) If desired, complete the optional Display Settings – Service CodeDelivery Time and Description.

If applicable, we recommend including a Description that provides additional information to your customers.

Select The Shipping Calculation Method

1) In the Calculate Shipping Based On section, you can leave ‘Select The Shipping Calculation Method’ on Cart quantity. This is the default setting.

It’s common to set a Flat Rate Shipping Cost for Same Day Delivery, regardless of what is in a customer’s cart. If you prefer to charge varying amounts depending on what your customer is buying, use this guide to set up Shipping Costs for your Same Day Shipping Scenario.

Enter A Shipping Cost

1) In the Shipping Costs section, click the Add Another Shipping Cost button.

2) Enter the Up To limit as the ~ tilde symbol.

In the Intuitive Shipping app, the ~ tilde symbol means ‘Infinite’ (no limit).

3) Enter the Shipping Cost – e.g. ’10’ ($10.00)

Shipping Costs are based on your shop’s default currency which can be changed in your Shopify settings. If you change your default currency in Shopify, be sure to re-sync your settings with Intuitive Shipping.

4) Leave the Per Unit (Optional) setting blank.

5) Additional Settings are not required for Same Day Delivery if you are setting up a single flat rate.

Save Your Same Day Delivery Shipping Method

Add A Next Day Shipping Scenario

To simplify the process, you can make a Duplicate of your Same Day Scenario, then make minor adjustments to the Condition and Shipping Methods, rather than creating a new Scenario from scratch.

1) Click Shipping on the main menu, then select Scenarios from the drop-down list.

2) Click Edit beside your Same Day Scenario.

3) Click the Duplicate button at the top right of the Edit page. This will create an exact copy of the Same Day Scenario, including the Shipping Methods.

4) Confirm Visibility is set to On.

5) Change the Shipping Scenario Title from ‘Copy of Same Day Delivery’ to Next Day Delivery or something similar.

The Shipping Scenario Title is not visible to customers, but it helps keep you organized within the Intuitive Shipping app.

Set The Next Day Condition

1) Leave the settings under Condition MatchProduct Filtering, and Advanced Options on their Default settings.

2) Leave the Condition type set to Day of the week from the Delivery Conditions group.

3) Leave the Condition logic set to Equals.

4) Uncheck the box beside Today, then check the box beside Tomorrow.

Update Next Day Shipping Method

When you created a Duplicate of the Same Day Scenario, it included exact copies of the Shipping Methods you added to your Same Day Scenario.

As with your Same Day Scenario, a Flat Rate Shipping Cost is typically used for the Next Day Delivery. If you decided to set up a Shipping Method with varying amounts in Step 1 of Enter A Shipping Cost (Same Day Scenario), you can still follow the steps below, keeping in mind that you may need to update multiple costs rather than a single flat rate.

1) Click Edit beside the Shipping Method.

2) Change the Title of the Shipping Method – e.g. ‘Next Day Delivery’.

3) If you added a Description to your Same Day Scenario, make changes to it as needed.

Edit The Shipping Cost

1) Leave ‘Select The Shipping Calculation Method’ on Cart quantity.

2) Leave the Up To limit as the tilde symbol

In the Intuitive Shipping app, the ~ tilde symbol means ‘Infinite’ (no limit).

3) If desired, change the Shipping Cost.

4) Leave the Per Unit (Optional) setting blank.

5) Additional Settings are not required for Free Local Pickup if you are setting up a flat shipping rate.

Save Your Next Day Delivery Shipping Method

Click the Save button to save your Shipping Method!

Save Your Settings

When you return to the Edit Shipping Scenario screen, click the Save button!

Customers will be shown the Same Day Shipping Method and Next Day Shipping Method options at checkout.

Amazing!
You’ve just created Same Day and Next Day Delivery Options
