  • Allow your customers to pay for Pre-Orders in advance.

2. Specify the date when an item becomes available

pre orders

  • Allow/disallow buying Available as well as Pre-Order items during one session.

3. Add a Pre-Order note to the stock status

  • An order is Pending/Processing if it has both Pre-Order & Available items; it changes to Pending Pre-Order/Processing Pre-Order when the available items are shipped.

Pre-Orders 4.4 5 18 18
Very useful extension The module is a must-have for those who want to implement a Pre-order feature in their Magento sites. It integrates perfectly with Magento built-in inventory system. May 11, 2015
Good Extension great extension and service!!! I recommend them highly. March 5, 2015
Superb Customer Service I'm in the process of building a new online store and having the ability to offer pre-orders for my customers was very important. I bought this extension and ran into problems once I'd installed it after carefully following the installation instructions. I contacted the AITOC and had a response within minutes. They contacted me to inform me that the theme I was using was causing issues and would require some investigation before they could get it working. 2 days later the extension is now working as described and has added an extra level of service for my customers. I was not charged for the extra work involved and have been extremely impressed with the professional manner the team at AITOC dealt with my issues. I cannot recommend them highly enough! January 14, 2015
Did not work We were looking for an extension to be able to take pre-orders, this seemed like an excellent fit for our needs. We installed it and we have several conflicts with another extension and basically it utterly disabled our test store, no orders were possible, it was not possible to run standard Magento functions, like changing status on orders and no orders could be placed using the front end. I imaging if I had a completely standard version of Magento with no other extensions then this would be fine, but it seemed to change files used by other extensions and as such it caused the problems above. I did not let it near my live site. As a side note, I contacted AITOC for support and a refund as this was not usable and they did not even respond. January 9, 2015
Excellent Just what I was looking for, we can now get products live on our site an accept pre orders. We can also display the due date so customers are aware of the date the item will be posted. July 11, 2014
Very useful Besides the fact we can pre-sale our out-of-stock products, it has reduced a lot our chat requests, because of the information of when the product will be available again. We recommend it. July 8, 2014
It decreased the questions on my callcenter It´s works fine, and because you inform when the product will be available again, it has decreased the questions on my callcenter July 5, 2014
Great Overall Product This is an easy to use product that makes managing pre-orders very easy. I would have given it a 5 star rating in Usefulness (and in turn Overall) if there was a setting to allow me to chose if an order with both pre-order items and in stock items was set to a Pre-Order or Processing status. If you need support with it, they have some of the best support I've seen in many years. June 19, 2014
Good extension We use this extension in our Magento and it works with some customizations that we done. April 8, 2014
Allows to manage pre-orders in a flexible way We have been using the Pre-Orders extension for more than 2 years and our experience is positive. The extension came with clear instructions in PDF format. Too often developers just do not care to provide well-written instructions on how to install and use their software, making things unnecessarily difficult. This was not the case. We contacted AITOC for a licensing question and they answered quickly. After activation, we found that the extension dealt out-of-the-box with the most important aspects of pre-sales, which in our experience are: - Provide clear information to the customer. - Display different messages on different products. - Integrate with existing shop management processes (no additional things to remember). The first requirement is met by just turning the "add to cart" label on the buy button into "pre-order". The customer cannot miss it. Of course, this happens only on pre-order products. Additional text is automatically added where it makes sense, i. e. in cart. The tools to manage pre-orders are essentially two, and additional product status and an optional custom message. They both are in the product's backorder management page, so our third requirement is met. The optional message can be customized on a per-product basis, so our second requirement is also met. We have no negative aspects to highlight about this extension. The price was reasonable and it just worked. We did not test technical support but the absence of problems should be seen as a good thing! January 15, 2014

I want to be able to restrict customers from combining pre-order products with available products. If someone wants to purchase two items and one is a pre-order product, then they will need to create two orders.

Thanks.

Answer: 
Starting version 1.2 you can restrict customer from placing both regular and Pre-Order items into cart at the same time. They will need to place two separate orders.

Hello

It seems like this extension is very close to one I'm looking for. I just wonder how this extension works with Grouped, Configurable and Bundle products? In case one of the simple products from the list is available as pre-order. Is there are any notifications in the list of grouped, configurable and bundle products?

Thank you

Kind regards,
Robert

Answer: 
Hello,

Thank you for your interest in our extensions.
The extension works with these types of products but you need to set not the configurable/bundle/grouped as pre-order but the simple products that are part of them. When customer chooses the option (corresponding simple product) he is notified that this option (product) is pre-order. Please try our demo to see the extension in action.

hi i looked at the demo but dont see how the custom stock status works. Will it allow me to add an option to the "stock inventory" which currently just has "in stock" and "out of stock" as options?

I would like to know if an order can have a regular in-stock item and a pre-ordered item. If so, what options are available for partial capturing and shipping?

Answer: 
Hello,

Customer can order both regular and pre-order items in the same order. Customer pays for the whole order. Admin then can partially ship the order (regular item) as pre-order item can not be shipped unless it becomes available.

Hallo, Is it possible to set the pre-order item to be payed only when shipped?
This is important in mixed orders where only one item is in pre-order.

Thank you

Answer: 
Hello,
Thank you for your interest in our extensions.
With our Pre-Order extension customers pay for pre-order products the same way they pay for regular products. There is no option in extension for customers to pay when pre-order item becomes available.
