Is it possible to have a product which you don't keep stock of that product, since basically, you stock the product if the client order it.
previously in my website I had three options (In Stock, Out of Stock & On Order). now that I am moving to magento, I'd like to know if I can keep this option. Since in the Stock Status of the product I can only choose In Stock or Out Of Stock.
You can try and enable backorders its under qty field ("advanced inventory") with that you can basically sell out of stock items.
it's not exactly the same thing... since out of stock, I don't have them and I am waiting for stock to arrive or I will disable them since they are no longer available.
But on order, are products which are available, but I don't stock them, so one need to order them for me to supply them.
I don't know if I am clear?
