YITH Pre-Order for WooCommerce

Allow your customers to pre-order their long-awaited product before it's made available and increase sales that could be otherwise lost for ever.

Do you want to sell products that are not on stock yet, but you know that you'll have them? Pre-Order is the solution for you. Customers will be able to buy your products, despite knowing that you haven't them yet. It's better than not selling them at all! All you have to do is: mark the products (simple product or the specific variation) as "Pre-Order" and give them an 'additional stock' that you know you'll have. In addition, customers will see a customizable message on the Add to cart button, like "Pre-Order this product now!". Then, customers will be able to purchase the products, and you'll receive an email any time a Pre-Order product is sold.

Increase your sales with Pre-Order!

Is this plugin capable of capturing the order only when the product becomes available or does it charge the payment right away?

In Pre-Order, the payments must be charged at the very moment the order is placed.

I set a product with no stock as Pre-Order. Why can't it be purchased?

You have to set a stock quantity for the product. That stock should be a quantity that you know you'll have at your disposal.

Can I customize the "Add to cart" button text for Pre-Order products, in order to make my customers see the actual product status?

Yes! In the plugin options you can enter your own text for the button.
