JS Add x business days to today's date (moment.js)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've got a bit stuck on something I am trying to achieve. I offer a few different postage methods which take anywhere from 2 days to 14. The issue I have is people often never account for what is a working day, in an effort to clear things up I'd like to achieve the an estimated delivery date onsite. I've been looking at moment.js as it seems that it has the capability to highly customise this adding not only working days but accounting for public holidays you specify.

Basic version
Take today's date and add x working days to it to output an estimated delivery date.

Better version
The above but factor in the time the order was placed to either count it in the calculation or start from the following day eg Thurs 9am order starts on Thurs, however a Thurs 10pm order starts on Friday.

Has anyone done anything similar with a commerce site?

Thanks

Can you have some screenshots of the result you want to achieve? Moreover, sharing your site with the protected password could help a lot
