Introduction

With Muvi Pre-Order feature, you can allow your users to buy content in advance at a discounted price. “Pre-Order” only works for content without video. “Pre-Order” will be replaced with “Watch Now” button, when the video is uploaded or live streaming for the content is available. All users who have purchased will be notified automatically by email, when the video is uploaded to the content. After the end of the offer period, content will work as a PPV content, if PPV is enabled. If PPV is not enabled, the content will be available as free content for all users. The Content will not be available for users, if video is not uploaded after the end of the offer period. You can add different Pre-Order categories, edit a category or delete a category.

Note:

  • Pre-Order is only applicable for VOD (Video On Demand) Single Part and Live Streaming content only. 
  • First you need to integrate Payment Gateway (Monetization -> Payment Gateway) to enable Pre-Order.
  • Once you upload video for a Pre-Order content, it will become a normal content. Users can watch this content by purchasing a subscription or by paying a one time fee (i.e. PPV)
