Minimum Pre-Orders needed functionality to the Pre-Orders extension
Instead of "Available on mm/dd/yyyy" we need the pluginto also be able to give out sth. like this:
"Available when we receive [pre-orders-needed] pre-orders. Already pre-ordered: [pre-orders-received]"
Interesting for start-ups and small businesses which need a minimum of pre-orders to give out an production-order to the producers of f.ex. T-Shirts which have a minimum of let´s say 500 Shirts. So you could design a product and offer it in the shop but in the details it says: We need 120 pre-orders to start producing. Pre-Orders received: 78.
I hope that isn´t to crazy for an idea.

This is exactly what I need right now. Doesn't appear to be such a hot idea at the moment. Would be great if the documentation had something for developers to extend it. Will have to do some digging.
so you have a product, max XX pieces for sale (optionally), but the deal will only go ahead if YY minimum sales were met beofre date ZZ. When this condition is not reached, buyers get automatic refund.
was just about to post the exact same idea... Hope this gets a go!
