Please keep in mind that Pre Order functionality doesn’t split payments for in stock and pre ordered products.
Some of your products are running out of stock and you are in two minds whether to restock them? Want to start a pre-sale campaign for a new store item? Then you need a powerful marketing tool, enabling you effectively estimate customer demand and provide visitors with the items they really need.
Exploit the power of Pre Orders to the full
With the Magento Pre Order extension you can demonstrate to your visitors which store items they can order in advance, thus getting a clear picture of real consumer interest.
Clear way to pre order products
Due to multifunctional Magento backorder tool one can inform store visitors about the products available in the nearest time. By replacing the ‘Add to cart’ with the ‘Pre order’ button for certain items on category and product pages, you enable customers easily select products for pre order. You can combine this with nice-looking custom stock statuses. To display the Preorder button for out of stock items you should set their status to 'in stock' and specify their quantity as zero.
Pre order for simple products
Effectively handle Magento backorders by allowing store visitors quickly add simple products to cart. Use special notification feature to create custom notes for each particular item. For example, you can specify when the product will be available in stock.
Configurable, grouped and bundle products pre order
Enable visitors to pre order or backorder Magento configurable products. As soon as customer chooses the necessary product configuration he/she will see whether the item is available for pre order. The same logic works with grouped and bundle products (except multiple selections). In case one of the items included in a bundle or a group is currently available only for pre order, customer will see the corresponding notification. Flexible module options allow you specify various notifications for each particular product in a bundle or a group.
Pre order functional in the Related Products block
Since now you can show your customers the items from the Related Products block that are available for pre order.
Fine tune warning message display
In case all simple products included in a configurable product are available for pre order only, the warning message will be displayed before customers select any configuration. The option also works for bundle and grouped products.
Take order management to a new level

With a new extra column added to your order grid you'll be able quickly sort and edit your store pre orders. There is no need to look through the whole orders list to find out which items have been pre ordered. This handy option will help you significantly decrease the time spent on order processing and eventually raise your productivity.
Advanced customization tools
Timely inform customers about stock statuses of pre ordered products by placing catchy notes not only on product or category pages, but on the order information page and email templates as well. This will help to avoid any misunderstanding and visibly improve customer experience.

I would appreciate if I could set up the date when products will be available and be able to sort preorders according to that date. This is the only feature I am missing.
It saved us hours of our time already.
Great product with an excellent support. What else can you ask for.
5 star all the way.
The installation went quickly and the navigation is intuitive - very easy to set up.
This little Magento App did exactly what it said and made this part easy to manage, especially since quite a few of our products are not always on stock.
On top of all we had a little issue that was solved with a quick customization free of charge by the developer.
Thumbs up and Thanks again!
literally needed such functionality as we have economic crisis in our country and it’s a pain dealing with suppliers, this way we can make prepayments and still deliver products.
Also I have a feature suggestion – automated email notifications on changing the status of a preorder. For now we send them manually which can take time, or maybe we will figure out a way how to send automated messages until this feature is implemented. The last update was in 2014 summer, I’m hoping there still will be more updates.
Since our site has a special theme with additional design, they offered to customize it for us for a very reasonable fee. They communicated very well and was able to meet all our demands, even if it's little issues. I can't say enough about their service. It speaks volumes when our site has over 20 of their extensions.
Highly recommended extension and company.
Thanks Amasty. Great solution to a problem we have faced for a long time.
Avec cette extension, on peut résoudre ce problème natif.
Amasty est comme toujours "très Pro" et réactif. Ils ont tout de suite corrigé un problème rencontré.
Je vous recommande ce module et cet éditeur. Vous ne serez jamais déçu.
