I have a gift basket business. I need to be able to offer the ability for customers to select a delivery date (by using a calendar or at the very least an input text field for them to fill out). Any ideas? (I can’t use Magento otherwise) hmmm

Are you planning on allowing multiple shipping methods? If not it would be possible (and easiest) to add an extra field to the method you want to use which allows the customer to enter a delivery date.

How do you do that?

Well, it would require modifying the shipping class or extending it but I know it’s possible. It would be better if there was a more streamlined way of doing it, such as would work for any shipping method, but I think that would be more complicated to achieve, and I don’t have enough experience with the internals of the shipping system to say how it could be done in such a way.

Please excuse my ignorance - how would one do this step by step? (it’s too bad that this great shopping cart does not offer an easy way to do these minor modifications)
