Include jQuery in your theme.liquid

For this customization to work, some themes require that a script tag for jQuery is added to the theme.liquid layout file. If you use a free Shopify Online Store 2.0 theme, then you might need to follow the next step:

  1. In the Layout directory, click theme.liquid.

  2. Find the closing </head> tag in the code. On a new line above the closing </head> tag, paste the following code:

{{ '//' | script_tag }}
  1. Click Save.

Create a delivery date snippet

To create a snippet for your delivery date picker:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme you want to edit, click the button to open the actions menu, and then click Edit code.
  3. In the Snippets directory, click Add a new snippet:
  4. Create the snippet:
    1. Name your snippet delivery-date.
    2. Click Create snippet. The new snippet file will open in the code editor.
  5. In your new delivery-date.liquid snippet, paste the following code:
{{ '//' | stylesheet_tag }}
<script src="" defer="defer"></script>

<div style="width:300px; clear:both;">
    <label for="date">Pick a delivery date:</label>
    <input id="date" type="text" name="attributes[date]" value="{{ }}" />
    <span style="display:block" class="instructions"> We do not deliver during the weekend.</span>

  window.onload = function() {
      if (window.jQuery) {
        let $ = window.jQuery;

        $(function() {
          minDate: +1,
          maxDate: '+2M',
          beforeShowDay: $.datepicker.noWeekends
  1. Click Save.

Include the snippet in your cart page
