Title: BackOrder Back Order
Post by: Roboteer on April 16, 2022, 05:16:21 AM
I would like the facility for my clients to be able to back order products. Is this possible for Abantecart?

What does it mean on backorder?
A backorder is an order for a good or service that cannot be filled at the current time due to a lack of available supply. The item may not be held in the company's available inventory but could still be in production, or the company may need to still manufacture more of the product.

You can pretty much do whatever you want - you can go to admin / system /settings / checkout, and have it so customers can checkout even if stock is at zero.
Then change existing messages via languages or add in a html block to let customers know it is a back order.
Or, if all your products are back orders, just change the messages / add in the html and leave the stock full.

My impression was payment processors do not like back orders though.
