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

  • Place "Pre Order" button on product pages
  • Show product configurations available for pre orders
  • Effectively manage your pre orders

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.

  • Place "Pre Order" button on product pages
  • Show product configurations available for pre orders
  • Effectively manage your pre orders

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.

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

Pre orders on the order grid

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.

  • Use advanced pre order filter
  • Enhance your productivity
  • Get more satisfied customers

Advanced customization tools

Product questions

Is it possible to split an order if one item is in stock and the other should be pre-ordered?

No, you can't split an order as the possibility is currently not supported by our Pre Order extension.

How does the extension work with configurable, grouped and bundle products?

It is a simple product status which is taken into account. This means that the stock status of a configurable product, for example, will depend on the status of the simple product which is currently selected.

Can I see pre orders on the Magento Order Grid?

Yes, you can see the back order report in a separate column in the 'Orders' section. Go on reading to see the screenshot. 

Can I assign pre order status to a category in bulk?

Yes, in case you have customized your Magento options with additional extensions for sorting products by category, you will need to use the 'Update Attributes' mass action and make changes in the back order field to assign the status to a category. Read on to see the example.

Can I restrict customers from adding both regular and pre-order items to a single order?

Unfortunately, you can’t create such restrictions with this Pre Order extension.

Is it possible to automatically email a customer once their product becomes available?

At the moment the extension doesn't send back order email notifications when pre-ordered products come back to stock.

Thank you!

Great Extension
I have been very happy with this extension. Hope it is ported to Magento 2

Great extension with fast support
The extension works well and developer is ready to fix any problems you may have along the way.
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.

Excellent. No other word can describe it!
Excellent extensions. Works as described. Had a minor issue with our template desing, but the support team fixed it within 24hours.

Great product with an excellent support. What else can you ask for.

5 star all the way.

Perfect for our needs and has helped increase orders
We have customers that like to order products in advance and in quantity to save money on shipping. They are not in a hurry and this extension helps us greatly in filling their needs. Support was very prompt in helping us integrate it into a custom template and quickly added some suggested features for us that made it immediately even more useful. We are staying with Amasty first for any extension needs as support is obviously not an issue. Thank you!

Useful product, but lacks some options
Pre order runs quite well, everything that is written in the description is true. But if amasty added the option of splitting payment, the module would become priceless for me. As it's not very convenient for customers to pay for both in stock and out of stock products.
Aug 07, 2015
Highly recommended
Due to this app we've greatly reduced the number of chat questions from customers who didn't know when out of stock items would be in stock. It's very easy to configure even without special tech skills. Has been running on 1.9.1 Magento version for 2 months already - everything works perfectly!
Aug 03, 2015
Doesn't work with out of stock products
The module works almost as it's described, but to enable preorders for out of stock items one have to specify that the product is IN stock and at least a zero value, but not Out of stock. Before finding this out I spent a couple of hours trying to setup preorder option for the products that were currently out of stock.
Jul 29, 2015
Decent quality for the money I paid
Works fine for preorders and backorders as well. It doesn't allow splitting payments and it's a huge minus, but there are some separate extensions for this purpose out there.

The installation went quickly and the navigation is intuitive - very easy to set up.

Before using this extension I added preorders features with code but needed to make changes after each upgrade of Mag ento. So I decided to go for an extension. This one is ok, nothing special, I think such extensions from different companies are all the same.

Pre Order does what it says
We've tried several solutions, using plugins or personal scripts for backorder/preorder messages and warnings and things often became quite complicated.
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!

One of the best on the market
We have tried several extensions of this kind, and this one came out the best to fit our needs. We
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.

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

Extension works as described
The extension works as described and helps me to understand my customers needs better. I also have some feature suggestions, I've sent them to Amasty

this extension does its work
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!

Great extension, even better support
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.

Blows AITOC Preorder Out Of The Water
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.

Extension indispensable
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.
Feb 10, 2014
Good as usual!
I've purchased the extension right after it was released. I believe I'm the first buyer :) It works fine. As always Amasty is great building new extensions! Now I do not even hesitate when placing an order with Amasty - top level!

Help us to serve you better!
