How To Create a Pre-Order
Follow the steps below to create a Pre-Order. The steps below assume you are logged into your Shopify admin portal.
Any pre-order products that are being tracked for inventory (quantity), must be configured to continue selling when out of stock. Otherwise, when the inventory is depleted, the product will be marked as "Sold Out"
Step 1: Tag Your Products
Go to the Products page on your Shopify admin, find all the products you wish to be on pre-order and apply a tag to all of them. For instance you could tag them all with "preorder" or something more specific like "blue-purse-preorder"
Step 2: Create the Pre-Order Set
Go to the Apps section of your Shopify admin and launch the Pre-Order Alpha app. Look for the button to create a new Pre-Order set and click on it. You'll want to set the following fields:
- Title: Give it a title you like and its easy to recognize later. Eg: "Yellow Jacket Pre-Order"
- Product Tag: Make sure to set this to the tag you used in Step 1.
- Hit the "Save" button at the bottom of the page.
Step 3: Thats It!
Your pre-order is now live! Make sure to check out your Shopify store, search for your pre-order products, and make sure you see them now marked as pre-order on your store
