Our e-commerce solution allows users to search or select items from categories and then purchase based on a product enquiry. These items are one-offs and it is important for the business to first ascertain with their customers if the product is readily available as they are also sold through other portals. A pre-order solution for "Add to cart" without requesting payment until the item is confirmed available was implemented as a solution for our client.

If available, the customer receives an email to confirm and is directed to the secure payment gateway to complete the order.
