How to Add Custom Text in Delivery Estimates Format using PluginHive FedEx Shipping Plugin?

In this article, we will tell you how you can add a custom text in the delivery estimates format when using the WooCommerce FedEx Shipping Plugin with Print Label. Start reading from below.

The FedEx Shipping plugin is an excellent plugin that allows store owners to show accurate delivery estimates. The delivery estimates that appear on the Cart/Checkout page are shown in real-time. So, depending on the address entered by the customer, the estimated dates would change accordingly. This feature is one of the most important and useful features of this plugin.

However, at times some of our customers need to modify this feature according to their business case. This can be done by adding a code snippet into their WooCommerce. Following is one of our customer’s requests which prove to be quite common.

Customer: Currently the plugin displays the shipping rates and the delivery format as shown below,

FedEx Ground: $33.55
Est delivery: February 3, 2018

Is it possible to have it come back as:

FedEx Ground: $33.55
Est delivery: February 3, 2018 (1 Day in transit)

or

FedEx Ground: $33.55
Est delivery: February 3, 2018 (1)

or

FedEx Ground: $33.55
1 Day in transit

We make use of this information in order to determine the amount of Dry Ice required inside the cooler as we pack the orders. We want this because having the date will make it more difficult for the staff members to calculate this.

In this article, we will show you how to add a custom text by the end of the Estimated Delivery date. We will also show you how to customize the code in order to change it according to your need.

The above code is necessary in order to add the custom text. You need to copy and then paste the code snippet in, Appearance–> Editor–> Theme functions(functions.php) and then click on Update File. If you look carefully at the line number 6, then you would find the following line of code:

$postfix_text = ‘ ( 1 Day in Transit )’; //Modify the text as per your requirement

In the above line of code, you can define your own message. So, if you want to show the text as “One day in Transit”, then you just have to replace it with the content inside the brackets ( ). This way the line of code would look something like the following:

$postfix_text = ‘ ( One day in Transit )’; //Modify the text as per your requirement

Doing this will display the page as shown below in the image:
