Pre Order for WordPress WooCommerce
8 Review(s)


WooCommerce Pre Order Extension: With the help of WooCommerce Pre Order Plugin , the customer can order products that are currently “Out Of Stock” or the items that have not to be released on the store. The idea got its grip due to the reason the people found it hard to get popular items in stores due to their popularity and stock availability for a limited time frame.

Buyers can now backorder the items with partial payments of the products. The product can be added to the store as pre-launches to create a buzz. This will benefits the store owner to collect the revenue before the order is shipped.

This WooCommerce Pre Order Extension provides an additional benefit to the store owner as the admin does not have to worry about the unsold stock.

Important Note - 

  • If you have a Marketplace website, then you can check our Marketplace Pre Order for WooCommerce.
  • The shipping will not be generated at the time of pre-order, else it will be generated once the product will come back in the stock and the buyer places the order again.

This plugin offers something no other Woocommerce plugin accomplish, and that is being able to let the customer make a partial payment (think reservation fee!) of a Pre Ordered product.

With this feature you will both hook the customers with a lower partial payment so they don't risk missing the product and, also important, you will get an initial feeling for how many of that product you might be able to sell (think how many do you need to order!).

The webkul team has helped us all the way with fixing issues regarding the plugin functions and our localized WooCommerce shop. At times I thought some things might be impossible but the webkul team never gave up.

Therefore I give this plugin and the webkul team 5/5 stars.

And with the upcoming updates to the ease of use for the customers I have to say that this plugin is a must have for any WooCommerce store that want/need to let customers Pre Pay/Reserve a product.

Thank you and Way to go webkul!
