    Hi Matt!
    Thanks for the video. Great tips! I love the idea of providing an overnight shipping option. This will help convert sales we would not have made otherwise, great tip! Order deadlines, another great tip. I suppose we would need to find a script to keep from having to manually update this deadline… Thanks again!

    Hi David, great question. You have a few options here, including placing the order deadline within your product and/or category descriptions. Additionally, some merchants will add order deadline text directly within their website template so it’s visible throughout the entire experience, while others will add a call-out on directly on the homepage. Or, if you like, you can make products display based on timeframe using the “Display Begin Date” and “Display End Date” fields. Hope this helps!

    How do we go about adding an order deadline to our Volusion store? Is there something built in to display those?
