Main overview

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

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 of new or momentarily unavailable items improve right away, offering your customers the chance to purchase the products they are after and receive them only after they are officially on sale.

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 the pre-order status, 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!

  1. 5 out of 5

    Jennifer Ward - verified owner

    Excellent plug inWe were doing pre orders without this module and it was a bookkeeping nightmare. This allows us to easily find them in the system when the items arrive in addition to automating things like removing the dates and changing the price when the pre order date arrives.

    Excellent addition to our web platform and makes life easier in our brick and mortar.

Can customers add multiple pre-order items to their cart?

Yes, you can add more than one pre-order item to the cart, both with the free and premium version. Yet, with the premium version, you can also decide whether you want only pre-order items (and limit this to only 1, if you want to) in the same cart, only regular items, or both of them. You can read more about this feature here.

Is it possible to set a maximum of pre-order products? So that we can manage the stock of these products?

Yes, you can set up a stock value for each product in the product settings > Inventory > Stock quantity.

Can customers submit the order with all payment details when the product is on pre-order status but be charged on their card only when the product becomes available?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to authorize the payment when you pre-order and then capture it only when the product is available. The payment occurs when the pre-order is placed and can be made with any payment method available on WooCommerce, credit card included. If you wish to let customers leave a deposit and to finish paying at a later time, you can use the plugin in combination with the premium version of YITH WooCommerce Deposits and Down Payments.

Is it possible to set pre-order products at different prices based on quantity? For example, when I sell 3 items the price increases by 5% for the next three items.

No, unfortunately, this is not possible.

How does this plugin work with subscriptions?

The plugin can be used with subscription-based products but there’s no connection between the charge and the product Arrival date. Meaning that the subscription fee will be charged immediately and the next recurring fees as well, regardless of when the pre-order product becomes available.

Any Currency Switcher plugins supported?

Yes, it’s compatible with Aelia Currency Switcher and WPML Currency Switcher.
