Possible to have checkout and catalog

New to Shopify! I offer preorders for which I invoice if the item makes production. I have my site set up where the customer “places order” without paying for now. I want to add in-stock inventory in the future that needs to be paid for when ordered. Is there a way to have both? Maybe just a catalog showing preorders with no checkout option and separate products with checkout option?

Hi @jesslauren4,


Nick here from Shopify. Great question! 


I'm thinking your best bet here might be to check some of the apps from the Shopify app store which are focused around pre-orders. Let's take a look at some of the most popular ones below: 


Because this feature is not native to the platform, an app or having something built custom for you would be your best bet for this. If you wanted to explore and investigate having something made custom for you, you could check out some of the Shopify experts from the Expert directory here


Hopefully one of the apps can do what you need it to. 


All the best, Nick
