Change stock Status was created by artique
Hi. On a product we can have 3 different states, regarding the stock status

in stock : a buyer CAN add it to cart
out of stock: a buyer CANNOT add it to cart
on backorder:  a buyer CAN add it to cart

How can I change the stock status to backorder with the plugin? (I can do it manually but not with the plugin)
Is it possible somehow?

Hi,

column to enable/disable backorders is called "Backorders". It is of checkbox type.
Check settings to see if you maybe turned it off.
If you still don't see it run "Clean Layout Cache"

Thanks,

I can see the backorder column but it doesn't seem to work, or there is sth wrong with the way I do it.

When instock = true and backorders =yes then I can see the add to cart button //  message= available
When instock = false and backorders =yes then I CAN'T see the add to cart button // message= not in stock
When instock = false and backorders =notify then  I CAN'T see the add to cart button // message= not in stock

If I do it manually, I can set the STOCK STATUS to either in stock/out of stock/ on backorder

If I choose on backorder then I can see the add to cart button with a different message than all the above.
