KAD Pre-order

Installation

App installation is very easy. All you need is to go to Shopify App Store, find our application and click "Add app". After completing these steps, our application will be ready to work.

Note, that you need to disable all similar applications before use.

Manual installation

Free plan

The KAD Pre-order application is offered by default on the terms of a free plan, which has some limitations:

  • the maximum number of products for which pre-order, that can be simultaneously activated, is 2 products;
  • bulk settings of several products are disabled;
  • Individual pre-order settings for product variants are disabled.

If you want to remove these restrictions and switch to a paid plan, you need to do one of these actions:

  • start setting up another product if you have already reached the limit;
  • start bulk setting of several products at the same time;
  • click on the link to go to the settings of product options.

After completing one of these actions, you will see a window for switching to a paid plan. Following the instructions, you can upgrade your plan.

The cost of your subscription depends on your Shopify plan. For more information about subscription prices, see the application page in the Shopify App Store.

Setting up and using

When you first open our application, the setting wizard will give you some tips on how everything works. The setup wizard will create a test product. You will need to make sure that the pre-order button appears on test product page. If you see the pre-order button, press "I see the pre-order button" otherwise click on "I can not see the pre-order button".

Go to the "Settings" tab and setting the application as you like. In the "Products" tab, you can click on the product and activate pre-order for it. You can also select several products and change settings for each one of them. Fields that youleave empty will not be changed in bulk editing mode.

Setting pre-orders for products and variants

In order to activate the pre-order for a product:

  1. Click the "Products tab".
  2. Click on the product you want to activate.
  3. Tick "Enable pre-orders" checkbox in the right column of the settings block.
  4. Set the "Quantity limit" of available pre-orders more than 0.
  5. Click "Save".

If you want to set the pre-order for variants of a product:

  1. Click on the product which variants you want to set.
  2. Click the "Variants tab" in the settings block in the right column.
  3. Set each variant in the same way as products.
  4. In order to go back click to the "Products" tab in the left column of the settings block.

If you see green status badge "active", it means pre-order for this product is active and button is available on product page. If you can see, for example, “active 5 variants”, it means pre-orders for 5 product variants are active and button is available on product page for each of chosen variants when you switch them.

Setting of pre-order period

In order to set a certain pre-order availability period for a specific product or for several at once:

  1. Select the products or product variants you need to set up your period.
  2. Tick "Enable schedule" checkbox in the pre-order settings block.
  3. Choose the start day for pre-orders and click on it in the calendar.
  4. In order to set an end date for pre-orders, choose this day and click on it in the calendar.
  5. Click "Save".

If you want to disable the pre-order period setting for one selected product or several of them:

  1. Select the products or product variants for which you would like to disable the pre-order period.
  2. Untick "Enable schedule" checkbox in the pre-order settings block.
  3. Click "Save".

[¡New feature!] Multilanguage settings

If you are selling in multiple languages, you have the option of manually customizing texts and titles for each of your store's additional languages.

How to make it work

Published or not, it will work for every added language. We highly recommend to start setting from the section "Default" in the tab Settings. These settings will be used on every product and variant that has not been yet manually customized. Here is how it works in "Settings" tab:

  2. Enter button "Out of Stock" and "Pre-ordered item label" text for additional language(s).
  3. Scroll down to section "Default" and click "Show multilanguage settings".
  4. Enter button and tooltip text for additional language(s).
  5. Click "Save".

You also have an option to translate pre-order texts for each product and variant. Here is how it works in "Products" tab:

  1. Choose a product.
  2. Tick box "Enable pre-orders".
  3. Complete all the settings for the default language.
  4. Click "Show multilanguage settings".
  5. Enter button and tooltip text for additional language(s).
  6. Click "Save".

Here is how it works for "Variants":

  1. Choose a product.
  2. Go to variants.
  3. Choose a variant.
  4. Tick box "Enable pre-orders".
  5. Complete all the settings for the default language.
  6. Click "Show multilanguage settings".
  7. Enter button and tooltip text for additional language(s).
