A pre-order is an order placed for an item which has not yet been released. The idea for pre-orders came when people found it hard to get popular items in stores due to their popularity.
WordPress WooCommerce Pre Order Plugin allows the customer(s) to purchase a product from the store which is currently out of stock. And a customer can even purchase the products which have not been arrived at the store.
The plugin is very flexible in many ways as customers can order the items with multiple stock units with partial payment as well if allowed by the admin.
Note: If a client has applied ajax to the add to cart functionality via any third party plugin on product page then it will break the plugin functionality because by default WooCommerce do not support ajax to the add to cart functionality on product page, it is applicable on all archive pages like shop, cart pages.
The shipping will not be generated at the time of pre-order, else it will be generated once the product will come back in the stock and the buyer places the order again.
