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.

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

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.
