Insights from Stores using our App

Discover how stores like yours are thriving with Pre-Orders. Read our insights and case studies below.


Benjamin B. – Director of Ecommerce at Frances Valentine

One best practice I would recommend is always padding your preorder quantities in case any products arrive damaged or are short shipped.

I also recommend using the “coming soon” feature if your products are not expected to arrive at your distribution center within 14 days of launching the preorder. We have found that customers do not want to preorder an item if they have to wait more than two weeks for it.


Karina M. – Design and Online Department at Maison Hotel

We have been informing some of our customers how this actual preorder process works, as is not that common.
Most of them are starting to learn and to understand it better. It actually adds value to our culture as a brand.

I recommend is to be an open book to the client, explain the process and be the most transparent possible but always taking in mind your essence as a brand.
