Preorder plugin for VirtueMart 3
« on: June 19, 2018, 20:12:21 pm »
  I have a J3 / VM 3 e-commerce which sells products and pre-order products, and my customers should be able to buy both of them at the same time.

  I have checked the one provided by Webkul, but it doen't do what I want (I need my customers to be able to buy common products and pre-order products at the same time).

  May anyone recommend me a good plugin for this?  Can I do this someway in VM 3 without buying a plugin?

It is possible to do with some clever overrides of the backend views and the print views. Making a plugin to control this would be preferred.
Last I heard was that this is a very seldom asked feature, therefore no core support for this.

I do this all the time, by creating a regular product, just clearly stating that it's a pre-order and the estimated date when we start shipping out. With Acymailing I can filter out all customers who bought a certain pre-order and easily send updates about the product (in case of delays in manufacturing etc).

What other features do you need?
