Why to use this extension?
The extension calculates the collection date sent in the request to TNT based on the settings for Days Before Collection. For example, if despatch of orders is done in 24 hours, the settings will be 1 day before collection by TNT. The system uses this information to calculate the shipping date. Unlike other TNT extensions, the shipping date calculated by the system excludes weekends and the public holidays set in the configuration.
The extension displays relevant error messages. For example, if the suburb does not match the postcode. The extension also validates the street address entered so that customers cannot set their delivery address to Postal Boxes or Roadside Delivery (as these are not supported by TNT). This means less hassle for the store owner as the delivery address is already validated before the order is placed.
