Why should you accept pre-orders?

In a growing number of industries and sectors, marketers and manufacturers are promoting products before they’ve even hit the production line.

It’s no surprise then that an increasing number of online shoppers are seeking out items that have yet to reach your inventory.

They’re keen to buy; you’re keen to sell; we have a simple solution!

By adding pre-order functionality to your online store, your customers get the products they want through advance reservations.

You, the retailer, also benefit. Your target market is less likely to shop elsewhere if they can find what they need at your online store.

  • Turn pre-order options on or off for certain products/product groups

How does Simple Pre-order work with Shopify?

Managed from the dashboard, our application allows you to easily select which products are available ‘on pre-order’. You may also limit the quantity of pre-order items available and control stock supply via the dashboard.

How will Simple Pre-order change the look of my store?

Simple Pre-order makes minimal changes to the overall look of your store. In fact, our app only changes the buy button name, as well as adding an optional tooltip message.

How do I get started?

Just download and install the app; our ‘set-up wizard’ allows you to get up and running without delay. It will work immediately, however, it’s up to you to configure pre-order settings for your product range.

I used this app when I first launched my store to collect pre-orders before having my product available. It was easy to install and the app integrated seamlessly with the backend of my website.
I ran out of inventory before Christmas and I ran into trouble installing it the second time. If you have trouble installing this app, contact their customer service. They are very helpful and will help you solve your problems.

We used this app for our store, while it provided the option for customers to do pre-order, it did not record on its back end, which was very annoying and as we had to dig for our pre-orders manually. I tried to reach the support multiple times but they were unresponsive. I would not recommend the app I but if you are looking for a very cheap option and for a temporary fix this will do.

While I think the simple-pre order app has a lot of potential (has the best interface of all the pre-order apps and intuitive functionalities) I have to unfortunately 2 stars due to the app performance:

1) A number of server issues over the last few months caused the app to be unresponsive and very slow. In one instance, due to server problems, the app stopped accounting for pre-orders causing many products to oversell. This was a problem that applied to all user base but it took a week to solve...

2) Other server issues made the app very difficult to access and edit as it simply would be too slow to load in the shopify back end. Eventually, the problem was so big that the pre-order app was also slowing our front end and had to disable it to avoid grinding our store to a halt.
Issues have since been resolved and the app works fine now, however, the fact that these issues happened 3 times in 2 months suggests that there is a risk for reliability and continuity of service

3) The pre-order button stopped working correctly on our store and while support has been very courteous in their responses, they were very slow to reply and address any issues. Due to the issue not being resolved after 2 weeks we have decided to give up an uninstall the app, which is a shame.

4) App does not work with slide out cart (this is indicated in the app guidance so it is expected behaviour, but still is not ideal compared to other options).

I wish this app would work as it is supposed to, without server issues and without the little bugs that appear here and there.

Maybe with a little more effort this app can improve and will look at it again in the future.

We are very sorry that our application let you down. We really ran into technical problems of the server part this month, and all of them are almost completely resolved.

I understand that you would like much more operational support, and we are sorry that we could not provide you support as quickly as you would like. Our small development team had not previously encountered server problems of this magnitude, which led to a long lead time for applications.

It's a pity to admit this, but our application does not work with pop-up baskets, and the listing of our application does not say otherwise. This function will be implemented in the future, but now it is not.

We value each of our clients and will try to improve its stability; we are now working on this. Please stay in touch with our support so that we can find a personalized solution for you.
