This plugin allows to preorder a product which is not available for shipping yet. The shop owner can set an initial sum to be paid at preorder time, as a guarantee in case of order cancelation. Subsequently. the rest is paid as soon as the product is ready for shipment. This mechanism is widely used in B2C and B2B environments where products have significant middle/high prices.
Once installed the plugin let the shop owner activate the preorder feature for single subshop, providing also the possibility to customise the preorder button color. Moreover, it allows the shop owner to define a global split prepayment percentage for all preorder-enabled product, while having then the possibility to modify these percentage only for single products. Free text fields are available on each "Item details" page to enable/disable the article for preorder, or to set a custom split payment percentage.
The rest of the process is as follows:
As soon as the products become available for dispatch and the shop owner marks the order as dispatchable, the customer will receive an email with the following information and implementation steps:
-The customer clicks on a link in the mail and comes into his account
- In the account, the customer sees the "Complete order" button to click
-by clicking, the item is automatically added to the shopping cart
-and thus the order is completed as the remaining amount is paid
-The shop operator now finds a new order. Meanwhile the previous linked account order is automatically marked as completed.
-The shop operator can now send the goods after the remaining payment.
