Key Features of Magento Cart Reservation Extension

Magento Cart Reservation Extension allows customers to temporarily reserve products they have added to their cart. When a customer adds an item to his cart, it is reserved for "x" amount of minutes before they become available again to other customers. So, the customer has the opportunity to purchase these products first. The Magento cart countdown and stock alert message used within this Magento Cart Timer module are a great way to monitor stock availability.

Temporary Reserve Products in Shopping Carts

Temporary Reserve Products in Shopping Carts

  • When a product is added to a cart, the client will see a timer notifying them that the reservation has started and will expire soon.
  • Reserved products are not available for other clients and guaranteed to be sold to the clients who added them to shopping carts.
Display Timer and Reservation Notification on Product Pages

Display Timer and Reservation Notification on Product Pages

  • Cart Reservation notifications can be displayed on product pages too. Let other customers know when the product will become available at your store again.
  • All messages can be translated, modified and styled as per your Magento store design.
Mark Reserved Products on Category Page

  • Let your customers know which product is popular and will be sold out soon.
  • Reservation messages can be added manually using our extensive documentation for developers.
  • Global or Independent Cart Reservation Timers are Available

    Global or Independent Cart Reservation Timers are Available

    • Admin can configure the extension to display one “global timer” for a whole shopping cart. When a user adds a new product to a cart – the timer will reset and start the reservation from the beginning.
    • It is also possible to use a “countdown timer for each product separately”. This way each product in the shopping cart will have its own reservation timer running independently from other timers.
    Magento Checkout Page Timer

    Magento Checkout Page Timer

    • Give your customers enough time to checkout. The extension allows you to specify how much time the user can spend on the checkout page before the products become unreserved.

    • Remind your clients to checkout before the time is out and the products become unreserved (or removed) from their shopping carts.
    Cash on Delivery Offline Reservation

    "Cash on Delivery" Offline Reservation

    • If you are using offline payment methods, such as cash on delivery, then our “reservation after checkout” feature will let you reserve the product until the payment is made or otherwise return it automatically back in stock.

    Overview of Magento Cart Reservation Extension

    Magento cart timer allows the site owner to create urgency without pressure. Items in your customer shopping cart will expire after a certain amount of minutes. This makes your customers want to hurry and buy before someone else does. Events and products can sell out quickly so clients must keep an eye on the countdown clock in their cart in order to secure the picks. If an item they want is in another member's cart, they can refresh the browser or check back on the item throughout the duration of the event to see if it has become available.

    There are two types of cart reservation timers available: the countdown timer for each product separately or reservation of all products in the cart. The extension allows you to set the general time of reservation including both cart reservation and checkout reservation providing more time for the purchase to be completed which leads to higher sales conversion rates and higher customer satisfaction. Lastly the website owner has two options for products after the reservation time expires - to delete the products from the cart or to leave them in the cart unreserved.



    Limited Stock Reservations

    If you are running a private sales, daily deals, flash sales or sample sales website where you have limited quantities of product in stock – then this extension is for you!


    Ticket Reservations

    Allow your customers to reserve concert tickets, flights, car rentals, hotel bookings in the shopping cart just like any other product.


    Holiday Sales and Special Deals

    Have lots of products in stock but still want to make it look like the stock will run out? Use shopping cart timer to create urgency of sale without pressure on your customers during holiday sales and special events.


    Offline Reservations

    If you are using offline payment methods, such as cash on delivery, then our “reservation after checkout” feature will let you reserve the product until the payment is made or otherwise return it automatically back in stock.

      United Kingdom Reza Aghajanzadeh posted on June 20, 2023. Review for Magento 2.x
      I'm using this extension for one year, but recently I faced a problem in my store regarding cart reservations with maximum quantity. And I reported this issue to the plumrocket support team, and the support team worked for me on this issue unconditionally and solve this problem completely. Thus I strongly recommend this extension because the extension is very useful and easy to use with the extraordinary support team.
    • Flexible extension and cart countdown timers
      United States Nicolas Wolff posted on August 11, 2022. Review for Magento 2.x
      So far the extension is working great. There are many settings to customize the countdown timers the way we want. We are seeing an increase in sales as our customers are confident they will receive our limited offers as they are reserved in the shopping cart.

      The module fulfills its function and is ideal for the store that has limited stock... It also contributes to the customer's quickest purchase decision.

      Great module, great support!
      Customers appreciate the ability to use the function of this module. In order to come up with such a module, it is necessary to understand well the relationship between the seller and the buyer. It is a delicate matter. The module has a good perspective to become part of the loyalty program. For example, use it for certain groups of clients (regular) or according to some rules. As for support, it is beyond praise! Everything is so fast, good and without idle chatter ... Amazing! We strongly recommend this module to purchase and use in their stores. We recommend the PlumRocket command!

      Best and easy to install. This is the one of my twelfth extensions from Plumrocket. I really love how their extensions easily integrate to our Magento (Porto) theme with little to no issues.
    • I really like it!
      United States Ronald L. Gross posted on November 26, 2017. Review for Magento 2.x
      It is compatible with my other extensions, and this is great! I like the ability to conveniently reserve the product. I have also noticed product competition growth since I installed this module. I like it so far!

      United States John Keeter posted on June 02, 2017. Review for Magento 1.x
      I have been using Plumrocket's Magento Cart Reservation for a few months now and have been quite happy with it!

      It worked out the box with no issues and the default styles look professional enough that I did not feel the need to make any major customizations to it.

      Support has also been quite helpful and I think the plugin adds a much needed feature to Magento!

      This extension works flawlessly, and when it doesn't (like when I mess something up tinkering with other extensions), the support team fixes it up for me immediately. I wish Plumrocket would make all my extensions!

      This is a must have if you have a limited quantity of stock products.
      The possibility to reserve product create a trusted feeling and a sense of urgency to complete checkout.
      It's also a good way to drive attention on most popular reserved products.

    • Our customers love cart reservation feature!
      United States Brian K posted on April 16, 2014. Review for Magento 1.x
      We have been using cart reservation for some time now. This is a must have tool for any magento store offering a limited stock of products to their customers. The usual checkout process in magento is very frustrating as it allows multiple users to add the same item to the shopping cart at the same time. Which means that the product will be sold not to the customer who added it to the cart first but to the customer who was faster at checkout page. This doesnt make sense in the usual brick and mortar stores. So people get upset not getting the item and leaving your store unsatisfied. This was a problem for us and cart reservation extension solves this fantastically!!!
      One last thing. We had one issue installing this extension on our custom theme. Make sure to follow documentation as it explains how to install it specifically for custom themes. Otherwise you will be fine.
