    Needed a few tweaks for our purpuses. Great customer service and support they got it fixed! I had been waiting for something like this that allows customers to preorder items that are out of stock without paying for it when they checkout with products that are in stock. Sales have been booming for the out of stock items. Makes you wonder how much in sales we have lost in the past.

    Nice addon, nice support!
