Fulfilment holds for deferred charge pre-orders

When a customer makes a deferred charge pre-order, their Shopify order entry will have an ‘on hold’ fulfilment status. This means that this particular line item will be ignored by any Shopify shipping plug-ins or services, so they  will not fulfil it. 

Then when the store is ready to charge, they can trigger the deferred charge, and if the payment is successful the fulfilment hold will be released and the status will change to ‘unfulfilled’. 

If the customer has a mixed order of some deferred charge pre-order line items and some buy now line items, you will have pre-orders on hold and the buy now items set to unfulfilled.
