    If the customer places a pre-order for the product in which partial payment is configured as a payment method by the admin.

    For example: Suppose a customer places a pre-order for a T-shirt whose actual price is 25 USD. (here partial payment is the payment method configured by the admin). The customer has to pay partial pre-order amount i.e. 10 USD during the initial checkout.

    Then after completing a pre-order, the customer will receive the order id for the same.

    Once, the product is in stock, the customer will receive an email prompting to come back to the store. And pay for the remaining pre-order amount. Now, the customer will log in to his account and navigate through the Pre-Order button of the particular pre-order.

    After that, the customer needs to click on the final order and that product will get added to the cart. The customer can also go to that product and complete the rest of the payment for the final order. Now, this time he needs to pay only the remaining amount of the pre-order.

    After placing the order again the customer will again get a new order id for the final order.
