Continue selling accurately : Effectively communicate out-of-stock sales with item-specific ship dates.
Collect now, ship when ready : Capture the full sale while holding or splitting out-of-stock items into delayed fulfillments or orders.
Real-time management : Automate, limit and easily manage all pre-orders in 1 place.
Being out-of-stock sucks! And, while you can easily continue selling, offering items that will not be immediately shipped may lead to unsatisfied customers, bad reviews, dreadful chargebacks, and a huge fulfillment headache.
Mercantile preorder (formerly BackStock) solves that problem by providing an organized and manageable way to continue selling and later ship items that are out of stock while communicating the delayed status of each item on the Product detail, Add-to-cart and Checkout pages.
You may deactivate and/or reactivate any item at any time, as well as view and export a real-time itemized report on current and released backorders.
Seamless workflow: use directly in Shopify admin
