Zapiet + Loop Integration


Checkout flow

Merchants will integrate Zapiet's calendar on the checkout which will display all the available slots for delivery. Customers will choose any of them basis their convenience.

Loop's system will auto-schedule the first and recurring order based on the first order shipping date and delivery frequency. Example: today is 21st Mar, and the customer purchases a weekly meal subscription with the first delivery scheduled on 25th Mar, then the next order will be scheduled on 1st Apr (25th Mar + 1 week)


Loop Admin Portal / Customer Portal

  1. With Zapiet and Loop integration, Merchants as well as their subscribers will only be able to select the allowed Zapiet dates via admin portal and customer portal respectively.
  2. The blackout dates and non-shipping dates set under Zapiet also gets disabled automatically in the reschedule calendar on admin portal and customer portal.
  3. Actions for Charge now, delay, reschedule, reactivation / resume or pause actions schedule remains as per the Zapiet calendar only. This ensure no orders lie on the non shipping or blackout dates. Subsequent orders will be shifted by the billing frequency as configured on the subscription.
  4. If any merchant has enabled anchor day on a particular selling plan, then the anchor day would be given priority over the Zapiet calendar.
