Create Order Programmatically


Create Order Programmatically


I want to create an order programmatically. My problem is when the qty i want is bigger than the magento stock.

The requested quantity for "xxx" is not available.


When quantity is avaible on stock this works well.


Is it possible to create order allowing more quantity than stock in magento?

- On backend i allow create orders when product stock quantity is below 0, on front end not.



$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')

$quote = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')->setStoreId($websiteId);

$_prod = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(1);
$quote->addProduct($_prod,new Varien_Object(array('qty' => $_POST['qty']))); ... ... ... $quote->collectTotals()->save(); $service = Mage::getModel('sales/service_quote', $quote); $service->submitAll();



Re: Create Order Programmatically

When creating an order from the backend, the quote is set to supermode in the class Mage_Adminhtml_Model_Session_Quote (96)



Then later, when Magento is checking the product inventory in Mage_CatalogInventory_Model_Observer in the function checkQuoteItemQty on line 303, the inventory checking is skipped if the supermode is set to true


if (!$quoteItem || !$quoteItem->getProductId() || !$quoteItem->getQuote()
    || $quoteItem->getQuote()->getIsSuperMode()) {
    return $this;

If I copy your code, and add the supermode to the quote:


$quote = Mage::getModel('sales/quote')->setStoreId($websiteId);

then I don't get the quantity error anymore.
