Increase Sales with Pre-Orders
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.
Why are pre-orders such a successful sales strategy? By converting a potentially missed sale into a purchase, pre-orders help improve cash flow and ensure you’re able to meet customer demand when inventory is low.
Add Pre-Orders to your Shopify Store
The Pre-Order Manager Shopify app can be installed in just a few clicks. Simply activate the products you’d like to pre-order and our app will do the rest! No extra dev work required.
Our app is designed to give you full control over how Pre-Orders look and function on your Shopify store. Configure any pre-order discounts, terms, or limits for any out of stock product with our intuitive pre-order manager dashboard.

Powerful features to help you sell more
An all-in-one solution that gives you the power to configure pre-orders to suit your sales strategy.
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.
Coming Soon product timer
Start marketing your best or newest products before stock arrives with the Coming Soon timer. Generate hype and clearly show customers when products are set to go on sale.
The Coming Soon timer can be added to any product, variant, or collection and works perfect for limited release products or presales.
Stock Alerts & Waiting Lists
Grow your mailing list and give customers the option to sign up for email alerts when products are back in stock.
The widget is fully customizable to suit your store’s brand and style, plus you’ll be able to export every email at any time to upload to any email manager.

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.

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

Adding the Pre-Order Manager to Shopify will give you the power to automatically show a “Pre-Order” button on your selected out of stock products. Customers will be able to place orders and be sent products as soon as inventory arrives.
By default, pre-orders are not available in Shopify. However, you can create pre-orders using a Pre-Order app, like the Pre-Order Manager. Apps make setting up pre-orders easy, with no dev work required.
The best way to get customers engaging with your pre-orders is to offer additional incentives such as discounts or a lower upfront payment. If customers can get the products they want at a lower price, opting for a Pre-Order becomes much more appealing.
