Deposit for Pre-order
In many industries, it is standard to charge a deposit for a pre-sale and charge the balance when the order is fulfilled. I would love to see this functionality added to the Pre-Order extension.
Our products start at USD150, are produced in lots, and there is a waiting period of 6-8 weeks for our customers to get them because they are custom made. Getting a deposit is essential so that we can plan the size of our production runs and pay for them! Without the ability to take deposits the Pre-Order extension is not useful to us.
That is a very essential on a high dollar items
This should be essential. Right now you can only either charge the full amount up-front (which never happens) or you charge when released. Deposit is standard and necessary.
