If particular items in your store are currently unavailable, a chance that a customer abandons you in favor of the other vendor is very high. Would you like to retain customers in your store and get profit even from goods that are out of stock?

The Pre-order extension lets your customers buy products that are out-of-stock or are going to come soon and pay for them in advance. A customer just needs to click on the ‘pre-order’ button and a product is added to the cart. By this way, you don’t lose your profit and collect relevant data on customers’ needs and favorites for forthcoming restocking.

Moreover, the extension allows giving special discounts for customers when they buy pre-orders in advance what is undoubtedly increase their loyalty and hasten decision speed. One more great benefit is the possibility to use the pre-order function not only for out of stock items but also for products which status are in stock.


‘Pre-order’ button

To easily indicate products that are available for pre-order, the extension singles out them with the pre-order button. Customers can quickly find such products in the catalog, on the product page, wishlist and compare page. It doesn’t matter if a product is out-of-stock as customers can always buy it.

The pre-order function is available not only for products which are out of sock but also for products which status is ‘In stock’ but for some reasons, you don’t sell them.

Special discounts for pre-orders

The extension allows creating special bonuses for customers when they pay for out-of-stock products in advance. Set specific time periods for discounts depending on the number of days left till supply date. So, the earlier a customer pre-orders, the higher discount he gets. All these discounts automatically display on the Cart Price Rules grid.

Furthermore, you can create additional general rules only for pre-order products in catalog price rule. Undoubtedly, this function makes the process of rules creation easier.

Pre-order notes

Add pre-order and supply notes to let your customers know exactly when a product is expected to be on sale. Admin users can specify either one general supply note for all products or set an individual date for every product that is available for pre-order.

Support all types of products

The extension supports all types of products – simple, configurable, grouped, virtual, downloadable and bundle products. Once a customer chooses the necessary size, color, etc. the extension shows whether the selected configuration is available for pre-order.

Easily find pre-orders on the orders grid and information page

It’s very convenient to track and find the orders by their type: order, pre-order or mixed. Thanks to these types admin users won’t need to look through the whole list of placed orders to find out which items have been pre-ordered.

The system automatically marks pre-orders with a specific note on the order information page. It ensures that store admins always will be aware of current order status.
