The ordering deadlines will also be automatically shown in your Spreadshop header, so customers should already be aware of their limited timing. They can also refer to the delivery time and cost calculator.
We generally need two days to ship any order. Increased production capacity can lead to longer production times, so the ordering deadlines can change last minute.
It can get quite hectic during the holiday rush, but rest assured— we’re doing everything in our power to assure that your customers receive their orders in time for Christmas.
