My second review since I can't edit it. This is such a garbage and the company support is horrible. Had problems, expected some help, they made a mess. CS-cart does not need additional order management, it's perfect, it only needs new statuses based on category, something even the same company does with the product stickers addon. Anyway, I've been asked by them to explain what's wrong, but it would take me less time to explain what is good about it.
Отличный модуль. Отдельная благодарность технической поддержке модуля, проявившей гибкий и индивидуальный подход к интеграции модуля в шаблон магазина.

Needed a few tweaks for our purpuses. Great customer service and support they got it fixed! I had been waiting for something like this that allows customers to preorder items that are out of stock without paying for it when they checkout with products that are in stock. Sales have been booming for the out of stock items. Makes you wonder how much in sales we have lost in the past.
Nikolai Tsekov
Solved a problem I had for quite some time! Also get the In stock/Out of stock alternative and you can set both the button and the field to properly show "preorder" now :)
