WooCommerce Pre-Orders is a simple solution if you wish to sell your upcoming products before it’s available in stock to your customers.
100% Original Plugin. The Same plugin found on WC.
Take control of all your products which are coming soon. You can start earning money before launching the product too. You will also have an idea about how many people are interested in purchasing the product. Also, it is a good way to promote your product before launch to recover your initial development cost. You can simply create a product as you do in WooCommerce with little extra fields in Pre-Orders sub panel.
This tiny yet powerful extension is very easy to setup. Just upload from WordPress plugin dashboard as usual and activate. Once you have activated the plugins, you will see all awesomeness of plugin here and there. We recently tested this plugin on WooGang and launched few products with preorder criteria.
WooCommerce Pre-orders through support two types of orders. In the first customer pays for full amount while ordering and he/she will be informed when the product is available and shipped. In a second one customer will be charged on the day of launch and at the same time, they will be informed via email. The key difference between two is the first method is acceptable by the majority of payment gateways while the second method which is also called automatic payment is supported by only few payment gateways.
