After installation, the app works out of the box for the most common themes. If your theme is custom, it may require integration which we can do for free all you have to do is send us staff access on [email protected] Also, don’t forget to enable the app (Settings > General) and add products that you like to allow for pre-order. The pre-order button will show up once the inventory of that product reaches zero. Make sure ‘continue selling when out of stock' and 'track quantity' checkbox is checked for that product.
The app has four types of settings. The general settings, design settings, product level setting, variant level settings. General settings are used to set validation messages, pre-order time period, app enable/disable, total pre-order cart limit, etc. product level settings are used to override some general settings like pre-order time period, button text, tooltip text, etc. Also, you can set a quantity limit, sold out message, etc. variant level settings override all settings. design setting allows changing look and feel of the pre-order button like text color, background color, hover color, text, font size, fonts, etc.
Quantity limit setting available on two-level, product, and variant. Variant level quantity limit overrides the product level quantity limit. If there is no limit set, customers can order as many products as they want. If the limit is reached, a sold-out message will show on the product page. Quantity limit calculation check variant stock to check if quantity limit is reached or not this calculation change if "Allow customers to select shipping date?" checkbox is checked. for that we will store number of sold items in database and system will check if that number reached or not.
Sold out message show up in the place of the pre-order button.
When the customer tries to order pre-order items more than the cart quantity limit. The “Pre-order quantity limit for total cart message“ shows up on the cart page. Also, if a customer tries to order a pre-order item more than the quantity limit of that item the “Pre-order limit exceeded:” message shows up.
