Does your store have products which are so awesome that your users should order them even before their release date? Then Woocommerce Pre Orders is the perfect plugin for you! Try this amazing plugin, which allows you to set the availability of your product, when it’s going to be available and many other cool options your ecommerce store simply can’t afford missing!

How to get started

Download the EffectIO Dashboard plugin, activate it and search for Woocommerce Pre Orders. On the right part of the screen, you should see the Install button. Click on Install, then go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins and activate it.

How Woocommerce Pre Orders Works

From the plugin manager, you will see these 5 options: Settings, Manage Pre-Orders, Support, Docs and Deactivate. The last option is for when you no longer need the plugin and you want to delete it from your site.

If you click on settings, a screen of options will pop up. We’ll walk through them and tell you what each of them means.


From here, you can modify the buttons on which your users click in order to buy. You can basically write anything. Just remember, write things that convert well. You can even test different options, especially if you’re running ads, in order to see which type of message button converts better.

product message woocommerce pre orders settings

The Product Message option offers you the possibility to tell your users when the specific product is available. You can write a single product page message or a shop message (this last one means that it’s available for the whole shop). Here, you can also enter other options, such as “Order Now”.

Moreover, you can let your users know when a product is available or not.

If you just found out about this plugin and you don’t know how to perfectly use it yet, you can put the whole plugin on staging, so no orders will be processed automatically. This might be a good idea for anyone, in order not to worry about not delivering orders. In other words, this is just another testing option you should disable after you make sure that everything is alright and you can handle all the pre-orders.

Quick recap

product woocommerce pre orders

When you want to enable pre-orders for a specific product, all that you have to do is to enable pre-orders for that, by going to Products -> That specific product. You can also set the availability time or date, including the hours and minutes and the Pre-Order Fee. Moreover, another cool feature is that you can charge your customers “Upon Release” or “Upfront”. Customize each product depending on your products’ availability and create an amazing journey for your users!

To conclude

Woocommerce Pre Orders is the kind of plugin you might want to test if you have products which need to be ordered before going available. Also don’t forget to let your customers know when their favorite products are going to be available for them in order to make sure that they have a great shopping experience.

How It Works

All WordPress derivative work is GPL in nature, so we improved items codebase and made it simpler for you to get results by using them. Installation and updates are fast with EffectIO Dashboard.

You can install the items directly too. EffectIO Dashboard is faster and on top, it blocks ads and notifications.


Even though the code is mostly the same as for other vendors, we offer you a free tool to simplify site management and security for you. Most of our plugins are pre-activated. Some need an activation key that we provide for you.

EffectIO Dashboard helps you update and license all plugins and themes at the push of a button. Build your first shop or improve an existing one. In either case, this Free Plugin Manager offers hassle-free updates for premium plugins, secured and all in one place. 

Money Back Guarantee

All items are working and are thoroughly tested. They have no limitations of features. If the items have errors and we cannot help you fix them, we give you the money back.

We believe that the entire ecosystem can be confusing and expensive. Hence, we offer freelancers, small business owners and agencies a low-cost monthly fee in order to stop worrying about investing a large amount of money in the beginning. If you make money with your shop you will surely see the value of our subscription in the long run.

Nagging Notifications

The Dashboard blocks most of the ads and notifications from your admin panel that do not have a close button.
