Sometimes there are situations when you do not have a certain item in the required quantity in your warehouse. And customers leave without being able to order the required quantity of goods.

In order to avoid this, we have created a add-on that will give you the opportunity to work not only upon the availability of a product, but also upon pre-order.

Advanced pre-order add-on

CS-Cart provides for the sale of goods with a negative balance. But you probably faced the problem that not every product is from the supplier, and you need to sell the rest of the product. Our add-on adds a parameter to each product indicating that the item is up-to-date and can be ordered from the supplier.

The add-on has customizable notifications, it supports the export and import of the properties of the relevance of the remainder of the goods, which allows you to automate the work. This will allow you to always keep the remains of the goods up to date.

From our own experience, we can say that with the help of this module we managed to increase sales by 20%!

Basic setting

The main setting is carried out in the product settings. On the Products - Products page, select the required product and go to the General tab in its settings.

Find the Product available from supplier setting. A checked box means that the product is available from the supplier and there is an opportunity to order it promptly.

    The message to the client can be changed at your own discretion.

    Automation of the availability of goods in the warehouse

    If you have a leftover file from a supplier, you can automate the process. To do this, you need to create an import template. On the Administration - Import data - Products page add a new import.

    On the preset editing page, specify the name of the template and the file to import, in CSV format. Save the template.


    Now go to the Field Mapping Table tab and select the appropriate fields. For the field with the availability of goods at the supplier, specify the Actuality() property. In the Modifier column, specify the one we need, for example, if you want to show the customer that the product is in stock when the supplier has more than 200 units, then the modifier for the Actuality() line will be case ($ value = "& gt; 200", "Y"). After saving, you can use this template manually or automatically using cron.
