Can we do pre-orders with this?

Can we do pre-orders with MarketPress? It seems like it would be a simple thing to achieve, but I dont see a setting for it.

    Hiya charlienco,

    Although it may seem easy it would have to be a re-writing of whichever gateway you wanted to use - and some have limitations on how long you can keep the buyer's info. PayPal, for example, only allows you to hold authorization on a transaction for 29 days.

    Since normally a pre-order is where they agree to buy in advance, but you don't pay until the item ships, you'd have to re-write the paypal gateway plugin to hold all purchases on a product until it was available.

    It's doable, but it's not simple. If you're interested in this consider writing up a feature request and we can see how many other folks are interested in it. Our development here is drawn from member feedback :slight_smile:
