Allow Back Order

Posted by Stock Position, Uncategorised • January 21st, 2016

You may have items that you can quickly obtain for your customer when you are out of stock or they may be items that you never stock. In this case you can mark the item as ‘Back Order’. This will cause the site to show that product as ‘In Stock’ or show a more accurate message such as ‘Back Order’ or ‘Order for delivery in 3 days’ depending on your requirements.

If yours is the type of business where everything is available on back order then the site can be configured to do this for all products saving you the effort of maintaining the back order status individually.
