Don’t let stock shortages or shipping delays slow down your business. Add Pre-Orders to your Shopify store and give customers the power to purchase the products they want before stock arrives.

Powerful features to help you sell more

Pre-Order Discounts & Partial Payments

Incentivize customers to buy and offer a discount on Pre-Order products. Setup is easy, simply select the products you’d like to enable discounts. Then, configure discounts based on any % or $ amount.

Partial Payments are just as easy to set up and give you the option to accept any deposit amount up front, charging the remaining amount once the product ships. Partial Payments mean you won’t always have to adjust cash flow requirements and offer discounted pricing for pre-orders.

What are the benefits of Pre-Orders?

Don’t take our word for it, read testimonials straight from our users.


We sell hundreds of different products and sometimes they go out of stock as the inventory is very difficult to manage. 

[The pre-order manager] has saved us on numerous occasions. The customer is fully aware they are ordering a product that is out of stock and what date it should come back into stock. 

It has eliminated a huge amount of customer service that we would otherwise have to do if we wanted to continue selling all our items. 

So, on top of saving us time it has also made us a lot more money. If you advertise your products on Facebook you know how important it is to continue selling if you have a great ad. This app has allowed that to be possible.

Shopify Merchant since 2019

Excellent app. It generated almost £2k in pre-orders in one day and helped manage expectations in terms of delivery times with ease.

Shopify Merchant since 2015

We’ve been using this product since the launch of our store and it is definitely one of the most helpful apps on our store. It accounts for about 30% of our total revenue. At least 3 orders a day that are made are pre-orders, and without this app it would not be easy to capture those.

Shopify Merchant Since 2015

 love this app – it’s allowed me to get almost 100 more customers that otherwise would have walked away due to stock being sold out! Woohoo!
