Delivery messages


Variables are placeholders for dynamic content in your delivery messages. A variable is enclosed in double curly brackets, for example {{date}}.

Options for a variable are separated by a space, for example {{countdown show_seconds="never"}}.


{{date}} displays a date in a specific format.


--- Template
Delivery between {{date type="delivery_min" format="[dddd], [mmm]. [dd]"}} and {{date type="delivery_max" format="[dddd], [mmm]. [dd]"}}.

--- Output
Delivery between Monday, Mar. 07 and Thursday, Mar. 10.


typeRequired - Use delivery_min and delivery_max to display delivery dates in the template for delivery date as date range. Use delivery for other templates. Use dispatch to display shipping date.

Delivery message position

The delivery message can be displayed anywhere on your product pages. We recommend placing it below or near the "Add to Cart" buttons.

Delm uses a CSS selector to insert delivery messages into your product pages. CSS selectors are generally used to target HTML elements on web pages.

Please contact us if you need help integrating Delm with your Shopify theme.

Change position in Shopify theme code editor

Alternatively, you can set up Delm to control the position of the delivery message directly in your theme code editor.

This is useful if you want to move the delivery message freely in your theme code editor, or if you can't find the right CSS selector.

  1. Navigate to Shopify themes.
  2. Click "Edit code" on the theme you want to edit.
  3. Open any .liquid file that is used on product pages.
  4. Paste the code snippet below in the desired location and save the file.
  5. In Delm, change the CSS selector to #delm-app and save.
<div id="delm-app"></div>

Disable Shopify ScriptTag API

The Shopify ScriptTag API allows us to install JavaScript files on your storefront. If you want to include our JavaScript file manually, you can disable the Shopify ScriptTag API in Delm.


Shopify has announced that the ScriptTag API will no longer be available the future. We are working on a solution to replace the ScriptTag API with a theme app extension.

How to manually include the Delm JavaScript file?


JavaScript files that you include manually are not removed automatically when you uninstall Delm.

  1. Navigate to Shopify themes.
  2. Click "Edit code" on the theme you want to edit.
  3. Search files for theme.liquid and open it.
  4. Locate </head> in theme.liquid and paste the code snippet below before </head>.
  5. Save changes.
<script async src=""></script>
