(Review by Excellent product & fantastic support)
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.

Excellent product. Does what it is supposed to do. If there is a bug in the product itself they will fix it. They did last time with a function that was not working properly the way i was using it. Compare to other companies I have to deal recently I'm glad to say you can buy their products and not to be scared. Thank for this product that fit my needs.

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.
