Delivery date customization: why your business needs it

If there is one lesson that 2020 has taught us, it’s that flexibility and agility are needed in companies, especially today. Life altering events have changed the way humans work, live and see the world. Because of this, customization and flexibility are more important than ever, especially in the corporate world. We need to have agile functionality in our work to cater to the needs of customers and clients.

Trends show that customers are looking for stores that give them flexibility in choosing their own delivery date. That extra step in customization can go a long way in retaining customers, and avoiding cart abandonment. In fact, a study conducted by Accenture shows that two-thirds of consumers have chosen a retailer based on the number of delivery options offered. The data clearly shows that delivery processes are a top priority to consumers.

Business owners and their customers should have full customization of order delivery dates, even down to the very hour. This is why we created our Date Change App Add-on to Bold Subscriptions. It gives you full control over almost every aspect of inventory delivery.
