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.

Questions & Answers

Product questions

The module settings are specified, but the products for pre order are not displayed in the cart or not available for purchase.
Rate the answer?

The product’s Availability is Out of Stock.


  1. Turn off the option that automatically enables the Out of Stock status for products that reach a particular quantity limit.
  2.  One of possible solutions is to reconfigure preorder settings. For instance, you can enable the preorder option when the product’s quantity reaches a particular limit but still is On Stock.

PerfectReview by Subimods

Amasty has done it again. This allowed us to pre-launch some products that were still in production. It additionally allowed us to recoupe some of the investment money into products during production time. PERFECT (Posted on 12/6/14)

this extension does its workReview by Peter
Overall extension rating
The best thing about this extension is that negative values are allowed. Letting customers to pre order products is a necessary feature for me and this extension does its work! (Posted on 7/3/14)
Great extension, even better supportReview by TD
Overall extension rating
The extension works very well in communicating to your customers that the product is a pre-order/back-order item.

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. (Posted on 5/20/14)
Blows AITOC Preorder Out Of The WaterReview by JerBlake
Overall extension rating
This extension is better than AITOC's extension. It allows negative values. Preorders and preorder messaging can be automated so that once product quantity goes to zero, it automatically turns on. I love it. Just wish Amasty would add the option to display some big global warning at checkout that will warn customers if a preorder item is in their cart. i.e. "YOUR ENTIRE ORDER WON'T SHIP UNTIL THIS PREORDER IS IN STOCK"

Thanks Amasty. Great solution to a problem we have faced for a long time. (Posted on 4/5/14)
Extension indispensableReview by Thierry

Magento gère très mal les possibilités de BackOrder.
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. (Posted on 3/6/14)
