Overview

Pre-Orders

Accept and easily manage pre-orders on your Magento store. Let you customers pre-order an item that haven't yet arrived or is out-of-stock. Start accepting orders in advance and ship the item later when it's available. Easily manage customers’ expectations by showing a pre order note with the availability date.

Pre-Orders features:

 

  • Enables Admin to label products as available for Pre-Orders;
  • Allows to offer a pre-order option for out-of-stock products;
  • Allows the following Pre-Order options for products: No Pre-Order, Limited or Unlimited Quantity Pre-Order;
  • Admin can specify the Product Availability Date that would be displayed on the page of a product available for Pre-Ordering;
  • Displays “Pre-order” button instead of “Buy Now” on the product and category pages for items available for Pre-Order;
  • Enables your customers to place a Pre-Order and pay for the item in advance;
  • Admin can allow or restrict the ability to buy available goods and Pre-Order items during one session;
  • Enables Admin to process the orders that contain both purchases and Pre-Orders;
  • Pre-order status changes if an order contains both pre-order and regular items;
  • Regular purchase proceeds as usual, and pre-ordered item is shipped when the stock status is changed to Available;
  • Sends automatic notifications to customers who placed Pre-Orders when the product status is changed to Available;
  • Enables Admin to specify a custom stock status;
  • Adds “Pending Pre-Order” and “Processing Pre-Order” to order statuses;
  • Enables Admin to easily search for placed Pre-Orders with Filtering by Order Status.

Please note that Pre-Orders extension allows charging only once, and charges will be made at the time pre-order is placed. It is up to you, and by no means limited by the extension functionality, to set the price for Pre-Order lower, higher, or the same as for the product when it is available.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by AITOC

Pre-Orders 4.6 5 14 14
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
Outstanding AITOC support went over and above the call of duty SEVERAL times to ensure the extension worked, even tweaking the code to suit my situation. They always responded within 12 hours, and they consistently delivered. If I ran a software company I could only hope that I could provide such outstanding support. Clearly some piece of mind when you are dealing with such a nasty piece of software such as Magento where you *need* to know extensions will be future-compatible for your business to survive. Well done. July 5, 2013
i bought this extension including installation. inbetween 24 hours they installed it, and it´s running smoothly and without any problems from the first second on. even they made a changement and renamed the button in german language according the EU laws. i can say only good things about this extension and about the support! simply great! Thanks a lot from Austria!! January 17, 2013
This extension works great for my needs! I've a store with online cd game keys. So we've allot and often pre-orders. Extension is flexible and easy to use. In the beginning there was a small problem, but AITOC helped me out fast and very good. November 6, 2012
You cannot install Magento if the module is enabled and installed locally, the module will simply crash everything. After I ended up looking at the code and believe me, that's one poorly written module, quality is clearly not emphasized. April 12, 2012

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
