3 Pre-order Plugins for WooCommerce

November 8th in Wordpress Plugins by .

Many online stores accept pre-orders and ship items to their customers as soon as they have them in stock. You don’t need to spend a whole lot of money to add such a feature to your own store. In fact, these WooCommerce plugins allow you to handle pre-orders easier:


WooCommerce PrePurchase: lets your visitors pre-order items on your website. You do have the option to charge your customers on availability date.


WooCommerce Pre-Orders: allows you to sell pre-orders for products and upcoming services in your WooCommerce store. Users can automatically or manually release orders, e-mail all customers who have preordered, or even charge a fee for a pre-order.

advance order

WooCommerce Advance Order Status: lets you add custom order statuses to your shop and send email notifications when they change. You can set a color for each order status and make bulk changes.

I’m building an online school lunch preordering platform where parents order lunches from school Lunch Providers (Tuckshop/Canteen). I’m looking for a shopping cart that will allow me to preorder meals for the upcoming week – 5 days Monday to Friday. Cutomers must have the option to select items per day in one order.

I have found a plugin called WPPizza that is great for setting up a menu and seems to have everything I need except its preorder extension only allows for placing one order per payment and not allow the Customer to place and order for Monday, Tuesday, Wed, Etc and then pay in one payment.

Hope someone can help.
Thx Kb

I know they have some extensions .. I have seen their Pre-order extension … my understanding was it allowed more than one item per cart. So you are saying that is not the case?
