Whatever happens keep selling! : "Sold Out", "Out of Stock", got backorders? Put your products or variants on Pre-Order and keep selling. Great for "Coming soon" products.

NO touching your theme files : We do everything with script tags so your theme is NEVER altered. It's SAFE to install and uninstall and no code is ever left behind.

Send pre-order emails and SMS : Clear communication is key to growing your brand. Make sure your customers understand it's a pre-order with email and SMS notifications.
