Can I take preorders in store?

Yes, you can take pre-orders also with Pixpa Stores.

  • Go to the Ecommerce section
  • Then click on the Products, select the product from which you want to make it available for pre-orders after out of stock of your products or launching a new product and will start available after a few days or weeks.
  • While the products with the Coming Soon status cannot be added to the cart, an easy workaround to this is to include the words Coming Soon in an active product description. See this example link.
  • And after that, scroll down below and enable Manage Inventory (1) and then click on the Allow customers to back-order product (2) from the drop-down menu list of What to do when you run out of inventory.

Note: This will help you to sell more products without out of stock problems issues with your particular product or complete store products. 

Make sure you clearly state the timeline and other details in your product description so that the customer is clear that it’s a product available for pre-order and will take time to arrive.

Please note that you will be collecting the full payment at the time when the customer places this order if you have enabled a payment processing platform like Paypal or Stripe on your Pixpa Store.
