Hi guys, co-founder of Celery here. We're excited to announce Celery Launch, the best way to host a crowdfunding or pre-order campaign on your own site.

@christai — how do you suggest companies transition their ecommerce footing once they've launched? Celery seems great for pre-orders, but what about ongoing ecommerce selling after the pre-order phase has concluded?

@chrismessina Great question! Celery supports crowdfunding, pre-orders and ongoing commerce, so it's easy to accept regular orders after you complete the pre-order phase. For example, switching from pre-orders to regular orders is often just a matter of charging buyers immediately (instead of a delayed payment) and updating your purchase flow to indicate that you're shipping now (vs. shipping later). Our e-commerce backend platform (customer + order management) handles the rest for you

Looks great! Going to see if this is a good way to help bootstrap our new app!
