Sherpa Delivery Shopify App Updates March 2022

Here’s a run through of the latest Sherpa Delivery Shopify app updates to provide even greater flexibility when offering Sherpa for shipping online orders.

Switch off or rename ‘Next Day’ delivery label when calendar isn’t enabled

When the calendar is disabled, Sherpa rates will show for same day, or, when cut off for particular services have past, next available day. We’ve now added option to provide an alternate label for next available day, or to not show next available day rates altogether.

Option to use shopify cart notes instead of Sherpa driver notes

By default, when you have the calendar enabled, or have a store with multiple locations, Sherpa widget will also show a ‘Notes for delivery driver’ field at cart. We have now added the option to use Shopify’s built in Cart Notes for this, or to switch it off altogether.

Disable the calendar on specific products

For customers who have same-day specific offerings, we’ve created a tag to disable the calendar on select products. When the ‘Hide calendar on select products’ box is checked under Locations > Delivery Date Selection, a customers’ cart that contains at least one product with the SHERPA-NO-CAL tag will not be shown the calendar and instead to default to same day / next day rates.

Compatibility with NZ locations

We’ve recently launched in New Zealand and the app has now been updated to include our delivery regions in NZ. You’ll need a New Zealand user account to get started
