I saw this extension after the Custom stock status extension and I immediately thought of some of the possible applications of this match. Like new product with custom stock Coming soon and then let customer pre-order the products or keep some product only on order. This extension is really useful, has a lot of applications and is really simple to install.

When customers see out-of-stock goods, they can still add it to carts and then pre-order, which is great because as the store, we have time to prepare the goods and customers still feel like the purchase process is not stopped mid-way.

Quickly predict the demand

Using this and I have more time to prepare the stocks and quickly predict the demand when releasing a new product. Customers love this and so do I. It's easy to configure, too. Thank you Mageplaza.
