Order Limit

Order restriction is here now for delivery time slots!

→ Now the wait is over, we have brought a new add-on that adds the capability to limit the number of orders that can be placed for the time slots as well as per Day you have with our app.
There are 2 options for limiting the order.
1) Order limit per day
→ Now you can set the limit per day as well.
For example
You have 5 working days i.e. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. So you can set the limit for those 5 days.

→ Check the below screenshot of the settings of the Order Limit per day.

Order limit per day

You can use this option without enabling the time slot.

2) Order limit per slot
→ Right to each time slot, the order limit option will be added to set the order limit number.
For example
You have 5-time slots as per the following and you want to allow 50 orders for the day.

  • 08AM to 09AM
  • 09 AM to 10 AM
  • 10 AM to 11 AM
  • 02 PM to 03 PM
  • 04 PM to 05 PM

You can assign 10 orders to each time slot to achieve the 50 orders total for the day.
You can also assign the limit per Day in the Limit Per Day option.
If you gave set the limit in both the option(Per day and per Slot) then the Limit Per Day will have high priority.
For ex: Per slot, you have set 10 orders and in Limit Per Day you have set 20 orders so once the 20 orders are placed the timeslot for that date will be disabled.
Note: This feature will works with only Slot wise time format.

→ Check the below screenshot of the settings of the Order Limit per time slot.

Limitations of Order Limit add-on

If you found that the orders are placed out of limit then it might be below causes:
1. If the store owner changes the time slot:
– Customers have placed the order for future dates. Meanwhile, if the store owner changes the time slot then the order limit will be set again for that particular time slot.
– Once the Order limit is reached for the particular time slot and the store owner changes the number of order limits again.
2. In case, more than one customer is selecting the delivery slot at a time, all are selecting the same slot for the delivery and proceeding for the checkout and placing the order, in those circumstances orders come out of the limit.
