YITH Pre-Order for WooCommerce

Do you want your products to become popular and sell a lot? Use an efficient pre-sale system in your store!

Whenever a product or service is about to be launched on the market, a feeling of expectations is triggered in your customers, which makes them more likely to proceed with the purchase. Unfortunately, this unconscious process is rarely used properly and once a new product is finally on the market, many customers already lost their interest in it.

Thanks to YITH WooCommerce Pre-Order you can watch your sales improve right away for new or momentarily unavailable items, offering your customers the chance to purchase the products they are after and receive them only after they are officially on sale.

Your customers want to be able to buy your products before they are made available: allow them to do so!

Many large companies use a pre-sale system in order to increase their sales and create hype around specific products. Just like Apple does! So why not start using this winning marketing system right away on your website? In order to offer this opportunity, we have created YITH WooCommerce Pre-Order, a plugin that will easily allow you to integrate a simple pre-order feature in your e-commerce store.

This will allow you to create pre-order ready products and put them on sale before they are released, create an automatic email system that will inform your customers once the item is officially released and on sale. It will also be possible to offer discounts for those who choose to purchase an item while it is still in pre-order state, which will make this strategy even more effective and will raise your conversion rate. This plugin works perfectly with variable products and allows credit card payment thanks to its compatibility with YITH WooCommerce Stripe.

Offer your products right now, including those that are not yet available and remember: each day you spend without enabling purchases, is a whole day worth of sales that’s lost for good!

    Doesn't work with variable productsClothing store. Cannot set up pre-orders for variable products. Would have to create a new product for each size.

    The woocommerce pre-order plugin allows variable product pre-orders.

      Hi Scott,
      and thanks for taking the time to review our Pre-order plugin.
      The plugin has been conceived to work also with variable products. If you're having any issues with it, we invite you to submit a ticket through our support desk (https://yithemes.com/my-account/support/dashboard/), so our developers will be able to help you fix any possible issue that is coming up on your installation. They will be glad to help you make the product work as expected! ;)
      Thanks

    Lovely plugin, simple to use and very useful.I love it is integrated with many other yith products, so you can combine plugins to make a complex project that would cost you a fortune if you asked a developer to make it from scratch for you!
    Thanks

    Hi, Marielle! The plugin is compatible with our YITH WooCommerce Subscription. However, I need to clarify the subscription fee, if any, and the first recurring payment will be paid when purchasing the pre-orde product and not when it will be available. if you need any further information, feel free to ask. :-)

    Hi, Aaron! Unfortunately, we haven't tested this plugin so far, I am sorry. However, at the moment our YITH Pre-Order for WooCommerce is compatible with Aelia Currency Switcher and WPML Currency Switcher.

    Hi, Carlo! This filter changes the recipient of the email sent for new orders. It also works if you use our plugin. :-)

    Hi, Peter! The order is unique therefore there is no way to set two shipping fees. However, you can enable the plugin option that prevents mixed carts so you don't need to make two deliveries, one for the available product and one for the pre-order product.

    A Hello Luis, I have installed the pre order plugin (premium version) and set the pre-order product status with NO date. Basically this means that the product will stay in pre-order state 'forever'. When the first customer buys the pre-order product, I create the product and upload it. Then I deselect (manually) the pre-order product status. Now the product becomes a normal digital downloadable product. As soon as this customer buys a pre-order product, they get a different email (thanks to this plugin), without the downloadlinks. This is good, because in this email I tell them that the product will take 1 to 3 working days to be delivered. There's no link, so they cannot click it. This is perfect because it prevents me getting tons of emails with question like "the link doesn't work'. I am in contact with YITH support, and they are looking to implement the function that when I unselect the pre-order status in the product, the customer gets the e-mail with downloadlinks automatically. When that's done, life becomes so much easier for me. :-) Then I only have to 'wait' for the pre-order orders come in, create them, upload them and deselect the pre-order checkbox, and done... So it does what I want, except for the automatic email sending, which YITH support is looking into right now. Maurice
