A pre-order is a product offering by which consumer purchases are permitted prior to release date.

The Release may take the same form as that which is available after the pre-order period or it may have exclusive elements only available as part of the pre-order offering, during the pre-order period. It may also have tracks that are fulfilled upon purchase during the pre-order period, while the rest of the Release is fulfilled on release date at the end of the pre-order period. A pre-order can have a mix of bonus and instant gratification tracks and it is also possible for a track to be both instant gratification and bonus.

Such pre-orders business models, if supported, shall meet the following rules:

  1. The isPreorder flag in the relevant Deal shall be set to true.
  2.  The ReleaseDisplayStartDate/ReleaseDisplayStartDateTime, TrackListingPreviewStartDate/TrackListingPreviewStartDateTime, CoverArtPreviewStartDate/CoverArtPreviewStartDateTime and ClipPreviewStartDate/ClipPreviewStartDateTIme shall be communicated if necessary. Note: if one of these dates needs to be communicated,  all of them need to be communicated.
  3. If only a subset of these four dates or date-times need to be communicated, the others need to contain the start date of the entire Deal.
