Let your customers place pre-orders on items that are not yet available, but much anticipated. The extension introduces custom stock status and allows to manage orders that contain both regular items and pre-orders.
Pre-Orders extension for Magento EE does the following:
- Allows to label the products as Pre-Order items;
- Works for all product types simple, configurable, virtual, bundle and grouped products;
- Admin can label products as: No Pre-Order, Limited or Unlimited Quantity Pre-Order;
- Allows to define the Product Availability Date and displays it on the product page of a Pre-Order item;
- Replaces the “Buy Now” with “Pre-order” on the product;
- Lets shoppers place a Pre-Order and pay for the item in advance;
- Handles the purchase of regular and pre-order goods during one session;
- Automatically notifies the shopper upon the product status being changed from “Pre-Order” to “Available;
- Admin can specify a custom stock status;
- Adds "Processing Pre-Order" and "Pending Pre-Order" to order statuses.

This is an easy to use product that makes managing pre-orders very easy. I would have given it a 5 star rating if there was a setting to allow me to chose if an order with both pre-order items and in stock items was set to a Pre-Order or Processing status.
If you need support with it, they have some of the best support I've seen in many years. I was online when they started processing a trouble ticket (I was upgrading from their old license system to the new one, not an issue with the product) I opened. They emailed me back and forth real time to help me solve the initial issue and a couple that I created during the process. It's hard to find support like this these days.
