Auto Tag enables customers to choose a delivery date on their cart page and then automatically tags orders with this date and day of the week in your admin panel.
Making it really easy for store managers to organise orders within the Shopify admin panel based on a delivery date.
It saves you time when managing orders and enables you to easily view only the orders for a particular delivery day. Without having to look at each order's details screen one by one to find out the delivery date. You can easily keep track of what’s due out, when.
Store owners who allow customers to choose when their order is delivered. It’s especially useful for shops who deliver locally. Our customers include florists, grocery stores like butchers & fishmongers, large furniture stores.
The monthly subscription fee is for the automatic tagging.
The monthly subscription is for the tagging of your orders with a delivery date. It is NOT for the calender on your cart page. If you don't need the auto-tagging feature (and the ability to filter your orders by delivery date) then you don't need to pay the monthly subscription.
There are 2 parts to the installation of the app:
On your checkout page, your customer can choose a date for their order. This usually gets stored as a “cart attribute” for that order and is accessible in the order details page within the store manager admin on Shopify.
Using the auto tag app, orders which have a delivery date will automatically be “tagged” with the date your customer chose on the cart page.
This means you can easily filter the orders in your Shopify admin panel.
Our server “listens” for incoming orders into your shop. When it “hears” a new order has been placed, it extracts the delivery date and updates your order with this date set as a tag. It also translates the date to a day of the week and tags it with the day too. It takes less than 5 seconds for this to happen.
Yes, all the updates are done securely. It’s a standard procedure in Shopify and hundreds of apps work this way.
They enable shop managers to easily filter orders from within the Shopify admin panel. Tags are a standard feature of Shopify and enable store owners to very easily access orders or view reports based on the particular tag of an order.
Yes, they can. There are 2 options for doing this:
If you just install the date picker, then orders wouldn’t get automatically tagged with the date.
