    Great list!

    As you know, your customers are very busy and they do not want to get unexpected products at that time without preparing. So you need Magento extension to solve that problem because the default of Magento 2 does not support this function.

    Therefore, I suggest another extension that also deserves to be a must-have module: Order Delivery Date extension by BSSCommerce.
    The module is compatible with all version of Magento.

    Check it out at:
    For Magento 1
    For Magento 2
