🎯Set up Specific rules

You can set up specific rules to customize estimate date and message for particular products, collections, and vendors. These guide will help you have better control over coordination between General and Specific rule, allowing you to tailor estimates for different sales and delivery context.

Terminology

There are important terms you should clarify:

  • General rule: The estimate rule applies for all products by default unless it is overridden by a Specific rule with a product/collection/vendor.

  • Specific rule: The estimate rule which is adjusted from the General rule but only applies to selected products/collections/vendors.

  • Items: mention products, collections, vendors in general

Key logics

  • You need to set up a General rule first before making a Specific rule.

  • A specific rule will override general rule for only selected items. Eg: You have 3 general rules named as A, B, C applying to all products by default. You set up a specific rule adjusted from general rule A and targets product X. On product X page, there will shows 3 rules: rule A is shown according to specific rule while rule B and C are shown according to general rules.

  • Overriding priority: Higher priority rule overrides lower priority rule. In case there are many rules at various level, the highest one is applied. The order is as follows (highest to lowest):

    • Product-specific rule

    • Collection-specific rule (If a product belongs to many collection and each collection has its own specific rule, then the product is applied according to the latest created collection-specific rule).

    • Vendor-specific rule

    • General rule

  • Scope of overriding: Specific rule will override corresponding general rule the following information

    • Estimated date setup

    • Message text

    • Show text on cart/checkout page
