New feature: you can now control expected delivery dates for products.
On your Details pages, your software outputs a date by which a customer can expect a product. Showing this date is a compelling strategy to get customers to order. As a reference, Amazon offers these expected delivery dates.
You can now change that date. For example, if today's date is May 1st, you can set the date to May 5th or May 15th.
You can edit this setting on the "General Settings" page under "Your Business Profile." Please look for the "Retail Purchasing Online" area.
By default, your account is set to show a date that is 7 days in the future.
The setting applies to products that you add to your site and to products from Smart Brands, so long as the Smart Brand says it drop ships. If the product is from a Smart Brand that says it does not drop ship, your software will not output an expected delivery date. The reason for this: brands that do not drop ship will likely take more time to deliver a product, and the expected delivery date may be too far in the future to appeal to customers.
