How to set a variable product as “pre-order”

The plugin supports variable products and allows managing the pre-order status differently for each product variation.

Let’s see how to do it.

Select the variation you want to configure and set the pre-order status through the related checkbox, as shown in the image.

Now, the new options added to the variation show and let you configure the pre-order status.

Pre Order options

In the variation, you can set:

  • for sale date: set the date when the product will be for sale
  • pre-order label: label to show for the selected variation on the pre-order button
  • price: you can set the pre-order product price in three different ways
    • fixed: the pre-order product price will be in the same amount of the specified value
    • Discount the selling price: the pre-order product is purchasable with a discount (by setting the value) on the selling price
    • Markup the selling price: the pre-order product is purchasable with a markup on the selling price.

To show the corresponding label for variable pre-order products,  you’ll need to enable the option in “Label settings” which you will find in the general plugins settings menu.

Note: only if all variable options are set as “pre-order” the label will be shown.
