Regional delivery speeds to customers close to your warehouse are usually faster than national delivery speeds. The Faster Regional Transit Time feature lets you enable faster transit times to nearby customers, for your domestic standard shipping orders. A faster transit time option will be available in your shipping templates for customers in the same region as your default shipping address.It is recommended that you review and ensure that you have set the correct default ship-from address because the settings defined in your shipping template will influence the delivery promise shown to customers.
To set faster transit time:
Customers are more likely to purchase products that have a faster delivery promise. By setting faster regional transit time in your shipping templates, the transit time to customers who are in close proximity to your main warehouse will be shorter, and you can offer faster delivery promises than nationwide shipping.
Since you will offer faster delivery options only to customers who are in close proximity to your main warehouse, you will also minimize the risk of not meeting the delivery promise. If you are not offering faster transit time to your customers, you can change the transit time options for the new shipping rule.
Currently, we only support setting this feature for customers located in the region where your default shipping warehouse is located.
You can edit your default shipping address by performing the following steps:
Currently, mainland Germany is considered as
one region in the shipping template for domestic standard shipping in Germany. With the
newly implemented feature, mainland Germany is divided into smaller regions. For
example, if you are based in Region 2 (Zip 20XXX – Zip 29XXX) and shipping to a customer
also based in the same region, you now have the option to choose a faster transit time
of 1 day as opposed to the default transit time of 1-2 days.
When you change your default ship-from address to a new address in a different region, your shipping templates are refreshed automatically based on the newly set ship-from location. You can offer faster promises to customers located in the same region as your new warehouse address.
Transit time for other regions will remain unchanged.
The faster transit time delivery rule will apply by default on your standard shipping templates. You can opt out anytime by updating the transit time of the shipping rule to a different value, for example, 1-2 business days than the suggested faster transit time.
Yes. You can opt back in anytime by updating the transit time of the shipping rule to the suggested faster transit time.
There will be no impact to the handling time because the faster transit time option that you set in your shipping template is based on transit time.
