Following the release of our Shopify App Embed and Shopify Plus Checkout UI extensions for specifying delivery dates and times on Shopify in Japan, we want to help you communicate these details effectively to your customers. Here’s a basic code snippet you can add to your Shopify order notification email template. This will remind buyers of the delivery date and time they selected during checkout. Note that you might need to adjust this code to fit your specific email template style:

{% for attribute in attributes %}
    {% if attribute.first == 'shipandco-配達希望日' %}
        <td class="customer-info__item">
            <p>{{ attribute.last | date: "%m月%d日" }}</p>
    {% endif %}
    {% if attribute.first == 'shipandco-配達希望時間帯' %}
        <td class="customer-info__item">
                {% case attribute.last %}
                    {% when 'before-noon' %}
                    {% when '12-14' %}
                    {% when '14-16' %}
                    {% when '16-18' %}
                    {% when '18-20' %}
                    {% when '18-21' %}
                    {% when '19-21' %}
                    {% when '20-21' %}
                    {% else %}
                        {{ attribute.last }}
                {% endcase %}
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Feel free to customize this code to align with your brand’s messaging and design preferences.
