Order management is one of the trickiest aspects of running an online business, especially if you’re selling a service or time-sensitive products.
From clashing appointments to having too many orders in a fixed timeframe, order fulfilment can feel like a nightmare.
If you’ve been busy messaging customers to rearrange delivery pickup times, your problems are soon to be behind you. Here’s why:
Cococart’s newly launched Timeslots feature is designed just for merchants like you.
What is Cococart's Timeslots feature?
With Cococart’s Timeslot feature, you can limit the number of available stock within a given timeframe.
And your customers can now select a time to receive their order.
It's a win-win! Especially if you're selling time-sensitive products and services.
Here’s how it works:
This is Coco Cat. She runs a home baking business that sells yummy fish-shaped brownies. They’re delicious and she gets consistent orders on a daily basis.
Each day, her delivery times run from 12pm to 5pm.
And within that timeframe, she only has the capacity to fulfil 2 orders every 30 minutes because of the size of her kitty kitchen.
It’s not made to handle bulk orders and she bakes her brownies in small batches.
In the past, Coco Cat had to constantly make rearrangements to avoid clashing orders.
But now, she can set her available pickup timeframe and block out available orders for each pickup time interval.
And the best part? You can set all this up in 3 simple steps below!
1. Enable both delivery and pickup in your settings
2. Set available time range and time intervals within the time range
3. Limit the number of orders available for each interval.
Here's what customers will see on your shop:
