We just pushed version 1.0.2 stable out for our [M2] UB One Step Checkout extension.
This new release adds the Delivery Date & Time functionality, House Security Code, enhanced Delivery Note to the core. Let’s dive in to learn in more details.
Let customers select preferred delivery date and time
With the new delivery date & time functionality in UB One Step Checkout ver 1.0.2, you -- as a Magento store owner -- can set allowable days for order and create multiple time ranges for delivery. For instance, your online grocery shops just do delivery on Monday to Friday, then you want your customers not to select the weekends which you can not deliver. Under this circumstance, you simply enables only the required delivery days and unselect the weekends.
Create multiple delivery slots for each day of the week

May 15, 2018 Update: GeoIP2 API integration is now available in UB One Step Checkout. It helps detect customer address automatically based on the IP address.
Today is an exciting day for me because I get to announce the release of a brand new Magento 2 one step checkout extension at Ubertheme -- UB One Step Checkout (beta), that we have been working on for quite some time.
The Magento 1 & 2 are great for a lot of things, but building an effective one step checkout page is not one of those things. It can be downright frustrating when working with six-step accordion checkout process in Magento 1.x. Getting maximum value from the reduced two-step flow in Magento 2 can be challenging as well.
Hence, we committed to building our new UB One Step Checkout. You will get a complete checkout solution that makes it easier than ever to build a one page checkout in Magento 2. The ultimate goal is to help you maximize successful checkout transactions.
So what to expect from the all new UB One Step Checkout? Here are some of the cool features that will be rolled out on the initial release.

Nothing turns off a potential customer more than an overly complicated Magento checkout process.
Here’s what customer research shows: According to the Baymard Institute, roughly 70% of your customers do abandon their carts just before checkout. Now there could be various factors leading to that. It could be hidden shipping costs or the final price of your product, but here’s the catch: Recent research reveals that it’s really the tedious Magento checkout procedures that often discourage your customers from completing their purchase.
